Sorry about that. I am still trying to get a hold of all this.

soory we need lspci result. –  Web-E Jan 29 '13 at 12:37
    
More specifically: lspci -nnk | grep -iEA3 "(wireless|network)" –  gertvdijk Jan 29 '13 at 12:48
    
Here is the lspci output: william@william-HP-Sleekbook:~$ lspci -nnk | grep -iEA3 "(wireless|network)" 02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Ralink corp.

@Cody Can you put the output in your answer? The formatting is badly broken from fitting it into a comment (which doesn't support line breaks). After running the command again and pasting the output into your question, you can use the <$> tool in the Ask Ubuntu editing toolbar to format it properly. –  Eliah Kagan Feb 5 '13 at 8:25
    
Was this problem solved finally? I'm having a same problem. –  Super Engineer Apr 23 '13 at 12:34
