here's what i got



03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)


in addition to the wireless not working i only have one of three usb ports working. i am trying to learn more about how these things function and whatnot, so that when i do encounter problems like this i know what is wrong and how to fix them. i'm definitely a noob though.


ps sorry it took me so long to get back to you on this i've been pretty busy, thanks
