    Hey, Bucky, what do you think about this??

    Yikes!

    I suggest you do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    Reboot and tell us if there is any improvement.

    I actually think the correct driver is loaded:
    rt2800pci 18715 0
    rt2800lib 58967 1 rt2800pci
    crc_ccitt 12707 1 rt2800lib
    rt2x00pci 14577 1 rt2800pci
    rt2x00lib 55326 3 rt2800pci,rt2800lib,rt2x00pci
    mac80211 506862 3 rt2800lib,rt2x00pci,rt2x00lib
    cfg80211 205774 3 wl,rt2x00lib,mac80211
    eeprom_93cx6 12767 1 rt2800pci
    However, the incorrect wl is evidently interfering.

    Re: Erased Windows, not Wifi Does Not Work

    I think nicely spotted and, as is common with these things, you are probably right. wl would make a difference and wl would be getting in the way.

    Re: Erased Windows, not Wifi Does Not Work

    under network, does there need to be anything other than wired and network proxy showing?

    Also. tried removing wl, no help. all the function keys work, but the wifi one, but it isnt hard block. additional drivers does not pull up anything relevant. Im so lost.

    i did the reinstallation of the wl but it still isnt working.
    We didn't ask you to reinstall wl. We requested:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    ...which REMOVES wl. Also, where did this come from? Have you been busy trying a few other solutions???

    You don't want or need rt3290sta. Until we can get rt2800pci and its cousins ONLY, we are unlikely to make any progress.
