Well in the end I ended up going on the official Acer website, getting the Windows Drivers, and hooking them up via NDISwrapper, which seemingly, worked. At least, it now recognizes my wireless card, and even sees good signal. However, there is NO connection being made. I suspect this is because of the absence of the Invilink Signalup stuff, but I could be wrong.
If anyone could help me out, that would be great.
Having said that, even though I ended up not using it, thank you for the madwifi page, attempting to get it working certainly made me learn at least a LITTLE bit.
Thanks in advance,
