I just bought a new computer with the following mobo: MSI Z77IA-E53.

It has built in wifi but to use it you need to install drivers from a cd, and they are only for windows. I went to the MSI UK homepage but I couldn't find any linux/ubuntu drivers there either. (http://uk.msi.com/product/mb/Z77IA-E53.html#/?div=Driver&os=All)

Does anyone know how I can find those drivers? Right now I'm using an external usb-wifi dongle but I would like to switch to the built in wifi asap.

Thanks for reading!

Please run the terminal command: lspci -nn. One of the lines will be the Atheros wireless card. Please post all the wireless details here and we'll assist. –  chili555 Feb 12 '13 at 1:12
    
ok added the results. did a ctrl+f search for atheros but didn't see anything. –  user130339 Feb 12 '13 at 13:22
    
I wonder if it's one of those rare but not unknown devices that attaches to a USB bus on the mobo. Please run and post: lsusb –  chili555 Feb 12 '13 at 20:04
