Ave! If anyone knows how to get this working:
lspci:

Ethernet Controller: Atheros Communications Device 1083 (rev c0)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 847e
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11
Memory at fe 300000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable [size=256K]
I/O ports at c000 [size=128]
Capabilities ....

Thanks !

We'd need the numeric PCI IDs, "lspci -knn".

Thanks !!! so quickly...

lspci -knn:

....

07:00:0:Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications Device [1969:1083] (rev c0)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Device [1043:847e]
08:00.0 PCI bridge


Is it sufficient? (without Ethernet I must hand copy on an other computer...)

      Code:
# modprobe atl1c
# echo "1969 1083" > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/atl1c/new_id

configure your ethernet card through Ceni and then dist-upgrade, kernel 2.6.38 will offer formal support for your card. If this fails, you'd need to download an updated linux-image-2.6.38*_amd64.deb or linux-image-2.6.38*_i386.deb (depending on your architecture) from http://aptosid.com/debian/pool/main/l/linux-aptosid-2.6/ and install it manually ("dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.38*.deb").
