Ubuntu 7.10 our Gateway 200 ARC Laptop

I upgrated to Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon now that the production release is out. The upgrade went without a hitch. The screen brightness still doesn't work. However, I finally RFM'd and WPA2 wifi worked flawlessly using the Netgear 511 wifi card.

This link walked me through getting the machine to recognize the card at all...

This link walked me through actually making WPA2 work...

The main trick to getting WPA2 working was selecting "Connect to other wireless network" off the network manager menu. Intuitively I would thing that network manager would prompt me for a password if it either didn't work or recognized the connection as WPA2.
