I'm going to try and setup wifi on a computer with Ubuntu installed where it doesn't work out of the box. The computer is an Acer Veriton L460 with a AR5001 wifi card. There are two options as far as I know:
- Use MadWifi
- Use ndiswrapper
There are steps for using Madwifi here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1305514
Some hints for ndiswrapper are here: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-240280.html. The driver seems to be available here: http://www.netgate.com/support/Drivers/STA_24071bin/Install/.
So my questions are, are there any other types of ways to do this? Are there any positives and negatives for chosing MadWifi or ndiswrapper? Has anyone had success installing this particular wifi card in ubuntu, and if so what did you use?
