I had a problem with Wifi on my 2008 era MSI Wind netbook right out of the
box when I installed Kubuntu. It came with XP installed which of course
worked. After months of fruitless searching I finally replaced the Wifi
card with one the Kernel did support.
A drastic solution but sometimes it is the only one.
