I have built myself a new server/pc. I happened to installed a WiFi card that was not supported by ubuntu 12.04 lts, so I found drivers that worked and all was good for some time. After the kernel update I rebuilt the drivers with no success, so I ran the live CD of 13.04 and the WiFi worked cool. I then did the upgrade to 12.10 and finely to 13.04 but the WiFi is still not working. Any suggestions?

Does it start working if you open a terminal and do: sudo modprobe rt2800pci If so, we can make it permanent. If not, check the logs for error messages: dmesg | grep rt2 – chili555 Jun 19 '13 at 19:11
thanks chili555. sudo modprobe rt2800pci worked, how can we make it permanent. – user168595 Jun 19 '13 at 19:18

Please open a terminal and do:

sudo su
echo rt2800pci >> /etc/modules

You should be all set but feel free to post back if you need additional guidance.
