I have been reading various other posts on the matter but none of the solutions are working so I thought I might as well ask.
Just installed Ubuntu Server 11.04 on my old Dell Optiplex 330. It has a wireless PCI card installed that I bought for it's compatibility with Ubuntu 10. It was working on Ubuntu 10 prior to the new install.
After the install there were no lights on the card and I can not use it.
When running; sudo lshw -C network
the device is listed but labelled Disabled.
The card is a Ralink corp, RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI
This is a headless install so command line help only please.
Thanks in advance!
sudo lshw -C network
