http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi guys, I recently got a Samsung NF310 netbook. It has a Broadcom 802.11n wireless card, which is not very well supported currently. In order to have reliable wireless, I switched it out with an Atheros AR9285 wifi card. The Atheros card seems to be invisible to the system. It doesn't show up in the output of lspci, and I can't find anything weird in dmesg. It's like it just doesn't exist. At first I thought the card was just dead, but then I tried it out in my old EeePC900 and it works fine. I know the slot on the the NF310 is OK, because the original Broadcom card still works.
