I have just tried to get the wireless working on a new Acre Extensa 5220
lpci gives this line
04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x
802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
ath_hal: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.
ath_hal: 0.9.18.0 (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413, RF5413)
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:04:00.0[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:04:00.0 to 64
wifi%d: unable to attach hardware: 'Hardware revision not supported'
(HAL status 13)
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:04:00.0 disabled
I am running on FC9 beta with a rebuilt (but standard) 2.6.25-1 kernel.
The error message appears to be from HAL, which I don't understand.
Any help would be appreciated. TIA.
Please ignore spelling and punctuation - I did.

Check either the pci id of your WLAN card with lspci (I'd suppose it to be
168c:001c) or the bottom of your notebook (there should be a sticker with
information for the built-in WLAN card, I'd suppose it mentions
"AR5BXB63"). If any of these two assumptions is correct, your WLAN card
uses a chipset of the AR5007 family, for which only experimental support
is available for x86 (32bit) so far. Please refer to ticket 1679 for
further information: http://madwifi.org/ticket/1679.
