Ongoing discussion about 1005P

We've had some interesting discussions about the 1005P recently on irc. It has atl1c for ethernet, like the ../1005HA and friends, and yet another new wifi chipset, ar2427 from Atheros. Our best lead so far on making wifi work is to (ugh) use ndiswrapper (though our one test subject doesn't have this working quite yet, in spite of reports of success in the Ubuntu thread):

Obviously we need support in ath9k and not rely on ndiswrapper, so the next thing to try is just enable the new PCI id, 168C:002C, in the ath9k source, build the driver and see what happens, reporting our findings to ath9k-devel.

If anyone else has this model, please, we want to hear from you! Drop in on the irc channel (#debian-eeepc @ or drop us a note on our mailing list.
