left limpus loving mint on acer one ? how do i get online please advise


Well first of all I would like to thank those, which assisted me.
I have an Aspire One 110-1722, which came with http://www.linpus.com/
Operating system restore disk did not work much like their site.

I latter went to http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ and on my XP computer chose
Linux mint http://linuxmint.com/ though I really loved it Linux mint was not able to get me on WIFI perhaps because the following was not supported

03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
04:00.0 System peripheral: JMicron Technologies, Inc. SD/MMC Host Controller

But the Ethernet was.

I latter went back to http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
And chose http://fedoraproject.org/

Honestly if I had a choice between .rpm or .deb I’m going for the .deb so if linux mint finds a way to get the above mentioned hardware to work I’ll be back to them but Fedora has been thus far better than I had heard tell I was tempted to try http://www.debian.org/
But going on the words (though somewhat condescending) while in a forum in regards to Mint verses Fedora in regards to WIFI connectivity I opted for less experimentation. So now I am online and so far doing fine.
For fellow new bees to linux like myself this site was helpful in directing me around http://www.linuxquestions.org/

As the one bellow can be of great benefit for self help through reading:

Hi there,

Welcome to the Mint community. I don't know the answer to the wifi question. Maybe someone will jump in with an answer.

I suggest that you look at the Linux Mint forums and Mint Wiki.

Here is a link to a Mint wireless wiki:

Best of luck

Regards
John

Normally I would not recommend this, but in some cases Mint will accept windows drivers with a built in utility. If you continue to have problems getting your wifi functional, you might give it a try. It should be in your mint menu under administration.

I think that's the atheros ar5007 wireless card. If it is, that card is evil to get to work! I'm struggling with mine at the minute...
These are a couple of solutions, I've not yet got round to trying them yet.

Give them a go, and have a hunt around for other solutions.

I have an Aspire One and had trouble, and have the same Wireless card, a friend gave me his wireless drivers to use. I can PM them to you if you so wish, they'll take a few tries and I'll walk you through it if need be

I believe unetbootin only goes up top mint 6 - try mint 7 (gloria) it is based on jaunty (ubuntu 9.04) the wifi works fine.#
