At first I didn't know what it was. The on/off light for the wifi wouldn't come on no matter how many times I pressed the switch for it.

Booted into windows and it worked fine, that'* when I fig'd my driver broke.

Small write-up on installing Windows .NET 2.0 and wine:


1. Be sure you're connected to the internet. Press Start button on keyboard, type 'terminal' press enter
2.
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
Enter password

3.
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.2
Press Tab then Enter to accept EULA

Code:
sudo wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks
sh winetricks dotnet20
The Microsoft .NET installation window will open. Work your way through setup.

You're done!
