Public bug reported:

asus has released a number of new pinetrail-based netbooks like the
1001p and 1005p that have a wifi chipset that still lacks OOTB support
in all Ubuntu kernels.  An upstream patch is available and I think it
would be very important to have proper support for these netbooks' wifi
in lucid.  Users currently need to resort to ndiswrapper.
