What Laptop are you running ? AAO ? Seems like the kernel is simply not-up-to-date to handle the hardware. I have the "Acer Crystal Eye" working OOTB since kernel 2.6.27, i think that the wifi is just working OOTB since 2.6.28...well, that would mean you'll have to upgrade or relay on the Debian wiki for AAO (comprehensive steps there), and no, i have not searched LQ for an "inhouse"-solution yet.
About your poor graphics: did you manually correct the xorg.conf ? At least you should have the driver "intel" instead of "vesa", if you're trying to run Compiz, you have to use some more tweaks (all in the wiki).
Good Luck, @nno

open a command prompt and issue the following command

update-pciids

then post the output of lspci again.. then we should be able to see which Atheros wireless card you have..


Also from the looks of some of that hardware (intel 4xxx series graphics) you should be running Ubuntu 8.10, it would have had an easier time detecting your hardware and it should actually support your graphics controller out of the box.

so did you ignore what people asked you to do in the other 3 threads as well ?

if so, I can see why you still haven't solved your issues..



And you are correct vesa is the wrong driver it should be the intel driver
