No wireless for Jolicloud 1.1 on Acer Aspire One D257

Hi, so a few nights ago I installed Jolicloud on my D257 dual-booted with windows 7, the ethernet works fine, but it fails to recognize the wifi card. When I right click on the network button it only has options for wired connectivity. Also the wifi light is off and turning it on with the keyboard doesn't seem to work with jolicloud. I tried to see if the computer recognized it in the terminal by typing "sudo iwlist wireless-interface-name scan" but it didn't bring anything back. Any suggestions?

Looking at how to get bluetooth recognized,
perhaps peppermint would be a be an easier choice for a newbie.

Nonetheless, yours uses a Acer Nplify 802.11b/g/n wireless card
Look for the dirver here

At the command prompt, enter
  1. lspci
to find out which particular card you, indeed , possess,

Best wishes!
