|I purchased this notebook from Powernotebooks.com which is a rebranded Compal JHL90|
I installed Ubuntu Hardy 64 bit on it, and I also compiled a custom kernel from stock sources for 2.6.27-rc4 for it to try to get the wireless card to work, to no avail.
General Hardware Specifications
Ubuntu Hardy does not come with drivers for the Intel WiFi Link 5100 wireless card; the card was recognized when compiling the compat-drivers, see discussion in Ubuntu forums. In an attempt to use built-in drivers and in the hope to fix the suspend issue, I tried compiling a 2.6.27-rc4 kernel from stock sources, but the same problems persist. I believe the issue may lie somewhere with the RF Kill switch--this unit has both a hardware switch and a software switch--but I've run out of things to try.
I just stumbled over a Compal kernel module, maybe this is another thing to try.
