    New Wifi card in Acer Aspire, doesnt work

    I had to buy a different motherboard for my acer aspire 3680, and it had a different wifi card in it. it has a T60H938.03, instead of the previous, 54.A50V7.002. They are two different models completely . i was thinking that might be the issue it cant find any wireless networks. any advice?

    I want to add on; I was half asleep when i wrote that post. To be more clear, my wifi doesn't find any connections.
    Here is the additional driver info:

    However, when i check the network info:

    So.... it doesn't have the enable wireless option.

    I then deactivate the additional driver and:

    It has that option. But, no network connections appear....

    I dont know if this helps but here are my results for iconfig with the additional driver still deactivated:
    ~$ iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    eth1      no wireless extensions.
