I updated 12.04 yesterday and it broke my wireless connection.

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

l@ubuntu:~$ lspci|grep Network
03:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe

In the hardware drivers, I see - rt3090sta is activated but currently not in use. WICD does not show wireless networks.

Can someone help me please?

Its perhaps very useful if you explain in your answer why the OP should do this, what they should expect to happen, how to revert etc. – fossfreedom Jun 22 '12 at 12:27
