    There are two drivers loaded:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv b43
    sudo modprobe -rfv rt73usb
    sudo modprobe -v rt73usb

    Re: no wireless icon / option after updating ubuntu 12.10

    Obviously it a Ralink chipset, try this driver:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
    wget media.cdn.ubuntu-de.org/forum/attachments/42/20/4365112-Ralink_5370sta-2.5.0.3_dkms.tar.gz
    sudo tar xvf 4365112-Ralink_5370sta-2.5.0.3_dkms.tar.gz -C /usr/src
    sudo dkms add -m Ralink_5370sta -v 2.5.0.3
    sudo dkms build -m Ralink_5370sta -v 2.5.0.3
    sudo dkms install -m Ralink_5370sta -v 2.5.0.3
    sudo mkdir -p /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
    sudo cp /usr/src/Ralink_5370sta-2.5.0.3/src/RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
    Unload the others:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv rt73usb
    sudo modprobe -rfv b43
    sudo modprobe -v rt5370sta
    Check:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    dmesg | grep rt53
    iwlist chan
    sudo iwlist scan
