    Asus eee 900ha wireless problem

    Recently I upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10, and everything worked out of the box without any hassle. It wasn't until after I installed the latest updates that I noticed whenever I powered up the computer the wireless adapted was disabled. I have fewt's asus eee pc acpi scripts enabled and the hardware button does not bring the wireless adapater back online. I end up having to restart the computer and going to the bios and turning the wireless back online.

    I have the atheros chipset included with the asus eee 900ha.

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    I'm on a 904HA, which I think has the same wifi chip, and I have it working, but the connection is weaker and slower than I know it should be.

    The internet works after I enable the wifi through the bios. I have not had to install the madwifi driver like i did in 9.04. I just can't get it to stay on without having to enable it everytime.

    ok... the same... but i want to enable it trought the network manager "hardwarely". i mean to disable the wifi power suply and REENABLE it. but the i can wifi only toggle by software... that means the power still flowing to the wifi hardware... and consume the battery...
