I can't get the following card working on an Acer Aspire One Netbook Model ZG8 and Ubuntu 9.04 Netbook Remix.

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)

Subsystem: Foxconn International, Inc. Device e00d Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18 Memory at 54100000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K] Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel driver in use: ath5k_pci Kernel modules: ath_pci, ath5k

It's unfortunate because if I can't get it to work, I'll have to return the computer to Costco. It's the type of Acer Aspire One Netbooks they sell at the Cdll Phone Kiosk which is different from the standard Acer Aspire One 10" netbooks
