Hi there,

I just picked up a 6-7 year old ASUS L3800 laptop from my in laws house. Wiped out the hard drive and I installed Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope). I have no idea what configuration the laptop (Intel Processor, RAM, Harddrive etc.).

Most importantly I don't even know if the laptop has wireless internet capability (internal wireless card). I tried doing some physical search in the back of laptop and also looking into configuration of L3800 laptops but no luck.

I also ran 'lspci -v | less' and couldn't tell if wireless card exist or not and what kind? Could you please help me find out if I have a wireless card. Any commands or programs would be great!
