    Fully operational laptop, used for work. The only strange thing is that the Realtek card is shown as wireless and vice versa, although it is working fine

    Network: 1GB Ethernet Intel 82540EP
    Wifi: IBM a/b/g (Atheros 5212) (not tested)

    OS: FC6 (of course)
    Kernel: 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6
    Suspend on Disk: --
    Suspend on RAM: works!
    Comments:

    - CPU scaling works out of the box (I keep it "on demand")
    - Suspend on RAM only works with extra kernel parameter in grub.conf: acpi_sleep=s3_bios
    - wifi not tested on FC6 yet - worked very well in FC5 (WEP only - never tested WPA)
    - Think buttons work out of the box
    - XGL works out of the box
    - Currently use the stock "radeon" drivers - better overall performance than ATI proprietary drivers (this isn't a gaming rig - but it could be! )
    - Dual booting using F12 on startup to select drive & OS (XP/FC6). FC6 on drive in the belly of machine, XP in a separate drive in ultrabay (swap out the cdrom to use XP - doesn't happen often).
    - haven't tried other goodies like digital cams, webcams

    ** update **: tested wifi - works without a problem. Using madwifi & kmod from livna, NetworkManager ... connect either no encryption, WEP (64, 128), & WPA (tpik) with no problems. Wifi hardware indicator light also works!

    Works great. Took a little bit of doing to get the ATI fglrx drivers working, but everything runs fantastic with the exception of wifi...
    On occassion, when I boot I sometimes get a __tmp interface instead of eth1 for the wifi card. I have to reboot until I get a eth1 for the interface in order for wifi to work (like I said this is on occassion). It was AWFUL when I first installed FC6, but it has gotten better.

    Comments:

    wireless works well with firmware cut from acer ferrari broadcom 64-bit drivers.... recognized the card right away, all i had to do was copy the firmware into /lib/firmware
    sound recognized immediately, though it thought my dial-up was a second sound card. haven't tested whether or not it works for dialup
    everything seems to work fine, with no problems whatsoever.

    Comments:
    FC5: Everything worked well in FC5 prior to the release of FC6 (wireless would drop if inactive for more than 20 min but ran otherwise using the native bcm43xx driver) - Ran WoW in Wine just fine
    FC6: Did a fresh install of FC6. Have been unable to get the wireless card working. The radeon driver and AIGLX did not provide sufficient graphics processing to allow me to run WoW in wine. Switched back to fglrx and xorg7 and it's working fine.

    An Update since I origionally posted this.
    I have been able to get my WiFi card up (Broadcom 4318). For a some what wordy description of what I did look here: Broadcom 4318 using ndiswrapper

    Comments: Everything works but the ethernet controller can be a hassle. I also used the ATI drivers off the website www.ati.com. Wireless I used ndiswrapper, i think their is an easier way though. Modem does not work. Card reader works flawlessly! Really nice notebook! Quality ASUS!
