Asked by ekeyme on 2010-05-02

--[My exprience]--
Hi, maybe the same question have been asking thousands of times, but still many people can't solve it. The experience to google the right answers is very Depressed & boring due to so many search results does not at work & the right may hide in those large numbers of errors posting you just can't reach them. Guys liked using ubuntu in their lovely Asus EeePC 900HA may also have the same expression as me. & I will be very happy and most appreciated if someone can get me out of this trouble. follow is my trouble-characterizations:

--[Phenomenon]--
1. everything (eg. wire connection & the Fn-keys) is OK but only the wireless connection

I think this BBS posting is worth to view

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1455708

but I want to solve this trouble without using the ndiswrapper. Is that possible?

COMMAND:
  # aptitude install linux-backports-modules-wireless-lucid-generic

also doesn't work.

OK, I think my trouble may more like this Bug #521967
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/lucid/+source/linux-backports-modules-2.6.32/+bug/521967

and I decide try to get it work using that. thanks reading.
