I followed the steps, all went fine, yet I get the same outputs as before (plus I lost the LAN card, so have to use wlan now), no improvement... xbmc wont start, and no opengl rendering

I do remember having the same problem this weekend. I believe the fix was to simply run the installation again:
I think this actually solved my OpenGL rendering problem. The later problem was then the hardware acceleration
Can't help you with the network card I'm afraid. My Asus board has an r8168 realtek card which works out of the box for now with r8169 module. At the moment I can't compile the realtek r8168 module from their website and have a topic running about this in the ubuntu forums.

Catalyst 11.7 released. No more kernel patch needed for x.x.39 & 3.x kernels!

Robotica, there is a typo in one of your command of the 1st post of this thread :
"Disable ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa untill everything is more mature.
Where "text" should be the command to disable the xorg-edgers/ppa.
Update to 11.7 - demiurg - 2011-07-27 22:42
Looking to upgrade from 11.6 to 11.7 (on kernel 3.0.0-5 and Ubuntu Desktop), but I am def. a n00b, so wanted to check here if my steps make sense, and if so it might help other n00bs to update:

I'm no linux guru and I don't have a Fusion box (yet), but surely the 'history' command would show you exactly what you typed?

Great idea, now why didn't I think of that.
I'll look over the commands and see what I did!
I already see something here which I did and didn't mention:

You can always check if hardware acceleration is being used by pressing 'o' during playback. If CPU usage is high and there's no mention of 'vaapi' you're probably not using acceleration.
To give an idea, when playing 720p blurayrip my CPU usage is 10% - 15%
