I am currently dining @ Bubba Gump Greenbelt 3 Makati and was glad to know that they have Free WiFi service for their customers.
Well, although it’s free, I still have to burn some amount for the food. And it’s a bit pricey, at least for me.
Looks like I fixed the wifi at last. I was able to download a more updated version of madwifi when I went to the repo. So essentially, there’s only one simple change with the original steps.
sudo apt-get install build-essential
tar zxvf madwifi-ng-r2756+ar5007.tar.gz
sudo make install

I was able to install Ubuntu Eee 8.04 beta successfully but since then, I have not configured the wifi properly. I have followed the instructions on the wiki, forum and justing gill, who is lucky enough to have his Ubuntu 8.04 perfect OOTB, but to no avail for me.
I was actually able to use the wifi even without applying the madwifi patch, but I had to turn it on from the BIOS before starting Ubuntu up. Or I have to leave the Wi-Fi ‘on’ before I restart. It could be fine though since I can always turn it off anytime I want but it seems like Network Manager is also not behaving properly. There’s no harm I observed though but it’s still better if it could work properly.

I’ve heard a lot of concerns about wi-fi capability of eeeXubuntu. Some say wi-fi do not start up. Some say they can start it up but cannot connect to any network. Some say it’s about the network manager on eeeXubuntu.
I have experienced those issues as well. I just followed the intructions descried in asus eee wiki and it really helped me.
One thing I have not resolve yet.
I can connect to all available wi-fi networks except for one. I used to hang out on that place before because wi-fi is free. But with my last 2 visits on that place, I was not able to connect successfully. The network manager says it’s connected, showing the strength in percentage. But I just can’t connect to the internet. All other users using windows running Windows OS there were able to connect successfully.
I did every possible way to reconfigure my network settings to no avail. The store owner says there’s no special steps to be connected. So I don’t have anymore ideas about it.
Somebody have any hint why? Please help.
