Hi Everyone,

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire 1 Netbook D270-1865 with Windows 7 starter already installed. I've used Ubuntu for a couple of years and wanted to dual-boot both Windows and Ubuntu, but something went wrong during the install and messed up my harddrive partitions, so I ended up having to do a clean install of Ubuntu on the whole system.

I've gotten it to where I can hit the desktop without a problem, but now I'm running into issues with the wireless card. I've been looking at forums/help sites all day, but nothing seems to work. I don't have a way to connect the netbook directly to the internet, but I have another computer (running Win XP) that I can hit the internet on, so I've been having to download files onto a thumbdrive and transfer it over the netbook that way.

Can anyone walk me through this? After a month of messing with it myself this is clearly over my head.
