    I don't know entirely yet, but a part of it is installing linux-backports-modules-jaunty. That gets my card recognized, although it doesn't seem to see any networks..

    ..uh, that is, until I click the 'wireless' button on my laptop.. ..hehe.. ..yeah. ..so, just install linux-backports-modules-jaunty.



    You may need to select your specific kernel (I.e., linux-backports-modules-jaunty-generic), but I think the general "-jaunty" package should be fine.

    Download and install compatible wireless if that does not work.

    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Download/stable/

    then Unzip the directory then go into the terminal.

    Then get into the directory of the unzipped file and run the following commands.

    Code:
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo make unload
    after instalation go to etc directory and edit the modules file.

    Code:
    cd /etc
    sudo pico modules
    then add your driver. For myself I have a atheros ar5b95 so I use ath9k. So I would add,

    Code:
    ath9k
    then save and exit. Restart your computer and you should be set. Let ne know how it works.
