I just did fresh install from Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop CD and I can't use my wiresless card.

 sylwia@mutalisk:~$ lspci
 (...)
 00:0b.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX 100 22Mbps Wireless Interface
 (...)

When I try modprobe acx I get FATAL: Module acx not found.

Output of: lspci -nnvv | grep Network\ controller:

 00:0b.0 Network controller [0280]: Texas Instruments ACX 100 22Mbps Wireless Interface [104c:8400]

Ubuntu doesn't ship a driver for that hardware because it isn't supported in the upstream wireless tree (not to mention its questionable legal status). On the other hand, Debian ships a compilable source called acx100-source, and you can find instructions for using it here.
