Ubuntu 11.10 Wireless on Sony Vaio with RT3090

Updated my Sony Vaio VPCM12M1R netbook to Ubuntu 11.10. The update went quite smooth although wireless immediately stopped working. Well it didn’t quite work with Ubuntu 10.10 either but the RT3090 package fixed it last time. Luckily I didn’t remove the package and was lucky to get things working on 11.10 simply by:

sudo dpkg -i rt3090-dkms_2.3.1.3-0ubuntu0~ppa1_all.deb

And obviously rebooting the netbook. Everything’s back to normal now so yeah, yet another successful Ubuntu upgrade. Loving the changes to Unity in 11.10!
