For the ATI graphics chip in the Amilo A1667G you may use either the open source radeon module or ATI's proprietary fglrx module. For configuration instructions you can view our Configuring an ATI graphics chip guide.
This Broadcom wireless controller in the A1667G does not have any native drivers available for Linux. This means you will need to use the ndiswrapper module. For configuration nstructions you can view our Configuring the ndiswrapper module guide. The windows driver to install can be found here.
