You definitely have the Atheros chipset?

When I shopped around for an R60/61 (I forget which) it said it shipped 
with an Intel wireless chipset - but they changed it at some point 
recently to Atheros so some R60s have Intel, and work fine, and others 
have Atheros, and at least with Ubuntu, have serious problems.

I had to return the one I bought - I couldn't get it to work at all, and 
ran into lots of walls (I wish I had documented it - it's all a haze now.)
