Re: Aironet 4800
You can read what lspci and most other things do by reading the manual. Please open a terminal and run:
Use the arrow keys to scroll back and forth to see the options and further details.
lspci is a utility for displaying information about PCI buses in the
system and devices connected to them.
By default, it shows a brief list of devices. Use the options described
below to request either a more verbose output or output intended for
parsing by other programs.
The first thing I'd do with the ancient and creaky Aironet is insert it and check the logs to see if the driver airo_cs loaded automagically:*Standing by while you read man lsmod*
If it did load, see if a wireless interface was created:If not, post some diagnostics for our review:
Then I would probably recycle it. I doubt that it is capable of WPA or WPA2 and so is quite insecure.
dmesg | grep airo
I would rather troubleshoot the Linksys, actually!
