What's the output of dmesg?
Which version of Ubuntu are you using?

Hi!

I finally managed to turn on the wifi lan card using acerhk module on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy. You can find it at:

http://www.cakey.de/acerhk/

to compile the module you have to install following packages:

build-essential
linux-headers
linux-sources

To compile, enter the folder of the package and type:

make
sudo make install

then you have to load the module into the kernel, typing:

sudo insmod acerhk.ko autowlan=1

Actually you can't turn on lan just pressing Fn+F1. You have to type from shell:

echo on > /proc/driver/acerhk/wirelessled

in the same way, to turn the radio off, you can type:

echo off > /proc/driver/acerhk/wirelessled

I tried the same procedure in Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid but it doesn't seem to work since I could not compile the module. Anyway I found the module pre-compiled in some repositories. With this module the led lights up but my network is not recognised. I suppose with few changes the acerhk module could be adapted to trap Fn+F1 key press but I still didn't understand how. In fact the command

cat /proc/driver/acerhk/key

should return the keycode of the last key pressed, which could be used to recompile the module adding the feature for a new model, but in my case it always return "n/a".

In the file:

C:/DRIVER/_SOFT/LI_LAUNCH/setup.ini

I found the following strings, which I think should be the keycodes we need

key0=0x0006
key1=0x0013
key2=0x0009
key3=0x0c0c
key4=0x040c
key5=0x0007
key6=0x0011

I hope someone could help us to compile the module in Intrepid to suite our needs.
