Yesterday i did make clean install of Gutsy using PXE, and i am trouble
having to get my wireless card working. Computer where i installed is
Compaq armada M700 and wireless adapter is Tekcomm NE-9428-g 54M using
Ralink rt2500 chipset (
http://www.fsf.org/resources/hw/net/wireless/cards.html ). By default
gutsy rt2500pci drivers the card did not work, so i tried using the old
drivers (rt2500) by using this guide ->
http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=3595458&postcount=6. Still no go
for the adapter. So currently i have no working wireless network
connection :(

Some details:

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

irda0     no wireless extensions.

That's about all the information, because it seems that i cannot even
get the driver working corretcly so that interface would show up.
