Networking (internet) not working on Acer 5315 in Ubuntu Gusty


My Acer 5315 came equiped with the Invilink 802.11b/g Wi-Fi system supporting Acer SignalUp tech. I am using a Linksys Wireless-B router. I changed hard drives and did a clean install of Ubuntu Gusty on a Western Digital 160gb drive. How do I get the wireless internet connection to work? I also upgraded my laptop to have 2gb of memory. Thanks for any help.

Andrew

Post the portion from the command on the ethernet nic in question.
/sbin/lspci -v

Never mind, I got MadWifi, but it doesn't work. I loaded the ath_pci mod.
From Gusty: Success
Built from sources: Failed

The interface I think is eth0 and it's a Atheros card (I guess MadWifi took care of it?)

If you have madwifi then the interface would normally be aliased as ath0. If you have a wired network interface then that would be eth0. Now as it is Atheros as you say there are some that are so new you may need to get the latest svn or cvs release that is considered beta in terms. Seeing output of the lspci command may confirm. Also there are some Atheros based nics that are identifeid wrong and may require a patch to the madwifi source to get it to work.

Also more thoughts. Wonder if it is using maybe ath5k module. Post the info about the nic from the command ' /sbin/lspci -v '
then post loaded modules. ' /sbin/lsmod '.
Then the contents of /etc/modprobe.conf
