New to Linux/Ubuntu, trying to get my wlan to work
After many years stuck with Windows, I've decided to give Linux a go. I've just installed Ubuntu 8.10 and everything works fine except I can't get my wlan to work properly.:-(
I'm runnig Linux on a new Acer TravelMate laptop with an Atheros AR5B91 chipset.
Is there any easy way to get the proper drivers installed and make it work?
The wlan is using WPA2 and AES. Does that present a problem?
Would the above be easier on a 64-bit Ubuntu?
A lot of questions from a newcomer, I know, but I'm grateful for all the help I can get! Apart from the wireless problem I'm finding Ubuntu and Linux really user friendly.
All the best,
