laptop Asus x80n atheros wireless driver & sound


i have tried several different linux distros with my asus x80n laptop but all of them failed to get the sound and wireless to work out of the box.
this is the spec:
http://asus.com/products.aspx?l1=5&l...77&modelmenu=2

the wireless is
Atheros AR5007EG wireless Network Adapter

& sound card is
Realtek v 5.10.0.5527

could anyone have successfully installed the drivers of these two chips on linux x86 or 64 bit

Hi all.

Please insert following string and read output:
"cat /dev/sndstat | grep Sound".
Look at version of alsa-drivers.
If version is not "1.0.14rc1" try to install "1.0.18rc3" (but don't use version "1.0.18")

You need the madwifi OpenHAL driver..

That's the same Wireless NIC that is in my Acer Aspire One netbook..
I downloadd the source and compiled the driver it's now working great !!

Here is a link to the how-to i followed in case you are still in need.
