It is just recommendation for your distro, not mentioned to the madwifi. Change from Fedora Core 6 to Ubuntu 6.06 or 6.10. The reason is Acer Aspire (I use too) have buggy ACPI and need to do hacking on the kernel(Majority of distro) to make the battery/AC adapter sensor working. Using Ubuntu the problem won't occur.
Distribution: Distribution: RHEL 5 with Pieces of this and that.
Kernel 22.214.171.124, KDE 3.5.8 and KDE 4.0 beta, Plu
Just trying to help and confirm the hardware you have for the wireless. Posting the output from the command ' /sbin/lspci ' will help determine if madwifi is the correct module for your wireless card. I don't wish to waste your time if a different module is the correct one.
