My medion 40653 is made on the base of acer notebook.
Special keys are not supported (www/mail/tv/wifi).

The problem is that sometimes after a bad resume, wifi is desactived.
In the bios the configuration for the wifi is :
disabled on boot
last state on boot

So i have to boot under windows just  for re-activating the wifi.

With this driver, under hoary, or the last breezy, i succesfully 
compiled it and activate the wifi. I can also launch firefox or 
evolution with special keys.

Please consider to add this in the kernel, or made a simple package.
