until i found a ticket at madwifi, then follow this guide. but it's so very long conversation to digest...
so, here i try to summarize it in case i need to repeat the whole steps:
wget http://snapshots.madwifi.org/madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-current.tar.gz tar zxvf madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-current.tar.gz cd madwifi-hal-0.10.5.6-current/scripts sudo ./madwifi-unload sudo ./find-madwifi-modules.sh $(uname -r) cd .. make sudo make install
that's all it. now i can use the wifi from ubuntu 8.04 hardy.
(it should also works on all other linux distros).
update: reports said it also works on ubuntu 8.10 intrepid.
