I have installed ubuntu 11.10 server edition on an older machine and I want it to connect to the network by wi-fi (LAN is working with no problems). I bought a usb wi-fi card with Ralink module (rt5370sta). There were some problems with installation but thanks to this forum I finally installed it. Now it appears on the list but I do not know how to run this module. I am using command-line only (no gui).
Thank you for any help
Here are some outputs from commands:
