anyone have an Acer TravelMate notebook or anything with an Atheros wifi chip?

| Sadly, even with the 8k stacks kernel, I'm getting an immediate kernel

My experience may or may not be relevant. I set up Ubuntu Feisty on my son's
Acer Aspire 5570-2792. I wrote up my experience here:
Near the end is a description of the wireless part of the story.
I had tried madwifi + HAL and got HAL status 13. That was not even
logged. Anyway, HAL is a black box and apparently the open source
folks cannot to get the author to respond to problem reports.
This might be relevant: http://madwifi.org/ticket/1206
I ended up trying ndiswrapper. It did not work. But I found the
author on IRC and he actually sshed into my machine (with permission),
figured out the problem, and checked a fix into the repository. Now
that is service!
I've not touched the setup since May -- the box is thousands of
kilometers away. I don't know how reliable the WiFi is.
