Summary:
- I have an Atheros ar928x wireless card (see below for "lspci" output), and I got it working by doing what Volanin says in post #5 in the thread
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=874097. It worked for me in 32bit and now in amd64.

<major snip>
Volanin's post now says:

The word "here" is a link to

which says "This is OLD and OBSOLETE. Please don't use it!" underlined and in huge red letters.

Help!

Please.

I have a new Acer Aspire 5738 with the AR928X WiFi adapter. Windows Vista (came on the machine) finds my LAN immediately but I really want to get it working on Ubuntu. The "Ubuntu" machine has *no* internet access unless it can use that wireless connection so I can't do anything like "apt get ...". I'll have to download something via a different (wireless, Windows) machine, copy it to a USB stick and copy from that into Ubuntu. Or use Ubuntu to copy from Vista's file system after downloading via Vista on the Acer.

How, please?
