Wirless chip help
Well the situation is I downloaded ubuntu 7.04 and put it on my father's laptop, and everything is fine, though i still have an issue with Trying to set up my wireless chip. Now I'm quite new to Linux and ubuntu and know very little about pc hardware in general. Anyone might know how to help me?
The computer model is an Acer Aspire 3680.

From what I've been reading on the web, Atheros based cards should work out of the box on Ubuntu. Have you tried running the network configuration tool (it should be somewhere in the System menu or run the command: network-admin).
