    My wireless card is not detected

    I am running Ubuntu 13.04 and I can only connect via ethernet my wifi card is not even recognized. I was looking throught the forums and tried to resolve the problem on my own, but couldnt I typed this command

    Code:
    lshw - C network
    and got the following output which leads me to believe it is not detecting the wireless card

    Code:
     *-network

    Let's dig a bit deeper:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep -e 0200 -e 0280
    lsusb
    rfkill list all

    Linux driver
    none
    Your alternative is to get the Windows XP drivers and use ndiswrapper. You seem willing to try to solve problems on your own, but I will be very happy to help if you get stuck.
