Lenovo G475 I was hoping a better lap

I'm so dissapointing with my new LENOVO G475, the reason? It doesn't work with ubuntu, and is my favorite OS. I already installed versions 11.10.    11.04   10.10 and 10.04 LTS this last one is the only who works well but without using the wireless LAN (even doesn't recognize some modem with the ethernet cable). I don't like win 7 (so slow in my opinion, and so slower in this lap in particular) I hope someone can help me, with a tutorial for LENOVO g475 with ubuntu, It would be great, thank you for your attention.

Tell me something about your's wireless card. Look on ubuntu forums if your's model is supported on Ubuntu.

Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter

Atheros AR8152 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20). This are the 2 problems, when I disable the wireless LAN the cpu works great. Any possible solution?
