I've done a fresh install of an Ubuntu 12.04 on an Asus EEEPC 901, which, as far as I recall, uses a Ralink (in the past I used the rt2860sta driver). I've been looking at everything... but it doesn't work, even it seems that lspci doesn't detect my Wireless card:

When my EEE 901 was working, I did use 12.04 with it out of the box without problems. Eventually, because it was an EEE PC, the wireless card decided to screw up, and it stopped working, and because it was still trying to work the entire computer was essentially halted. I had to disable this and get a USB WiFi stick, but those can be annoying. Which Wireless card do you have? –  etsr Nov 23 '12 at 14:21
