I have the same wireless card on a Lenovo U160 and I got it working by

gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

and adding

blacklist acer_wmi

to to the end of the file. Restart your computer and hopefully your wireless works. Maybe you have to press Fn+F5 (the wireless activation key combination) once or twice, but for me it just worked instantly after rebooting.

I did it, acer_wmi is already in the blacklist, but wireless dones't work. The Ubuntu version is 11.10 and the version kernel is 3.0.0-12-generic-pae. – Miguel Angel Rubio Oct 15 '11 at 14:57
