Default Another WIFI Issue Involving WMP54G & /etc/hosts

My New Gateway GT5656 AMD64 X2, just installed with
Gutsy, without a bobble, has this in /etc/hosts:

lchata@ubuntu64:/etc/apt$ cat /etc/hosts localhost ubuntu64.gateway.2wire.net ubuntu64

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

Well, I don't remember ever seeing the second line
with, in any of my original ubuntu machines
on my lan. However, I've modified the hosts file in
them several times to resolve other issues and maybe
just don't remember.
So, is there a way to regenerate the original
/etc/hosts file without a complete reinstall? Or will
I just have to nano the above info in order to correct
I would really like the resolve this, and other
issues. in my /Etc in order to concentrate on getting
the LinkSys wifi card to work. All comments,
suggestions, etc. are welcomed. Thanks,

Leonard Chatagnier
