I just installed 10.10 x64 and cannot even find my wireless network let alone connect to it. I've searched all over SE and Ubuntu forums and cannot find out how to do this simple thing.
Can some one please give me the answer? It is plugged in right now and is 100% updated.
It is a Desktop with wireless card.

Here's the output of
sudo lshw -c network:

I have discovered that this is a know issue with the rt2860. I have been following step by step the instructions found here
I decided to stat over because I was getting stuck on step 5:
sudo rmmod rt2860sta
is was giving me this problem:
ERROR: Module rt2860sta does not exist in /proc/modules
Since I started over I cannot even get past step 5
I get this:
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
I am lost. Any help would be appreciated.
