    the question is the one in the title...
    i think this means the wireless card is broken, or am i missing something?

    I don't think this helps you much, but lspci should pick up your wireless card.

    exactly... mine looked like that before, now it doesn't pick up my wireless card.
    I am 99% sure it's broken
    I justneed a confirmation that this is not being caused by some esoteric bug.

    thank you coffeecat.

    If the blue wifi light is off then the card will not be picked up lspci. I have a 701 running eeeubuntu with the Array custom kernel.
    For those new to Ubuntu most of your answers can be found at help.ubuntu.com or ubuntuguide.org
