Hello All,
I am a noobe to linux and I have setup Centos 6. I have set up raid 5 got Gnome starting on boot up and got my hard wire network working all from googeling and forums

Problem:

I cant figure out how to get my wireless card working. I have been searching all day and cant find or don't understand what I am reading. My wireless nic card is a linksys model WMP 600N
pc wizard a utility for windows reports it as Ralink technology RT2800 802.11n Anyway this is one tough nut to crack. Any help I would really appreciate.

Hi!

And Welcome to Linux Questions!

I started reading these articles to help you.
It sounds like you need a driver but I have to determine which one for you Network Interface Card.

I think you need a driver for your Ralink RT2800 PCI card-

Is your computer a desktop or a laptop?
And is it 32bit or 64bit?

If you don't know I can look up your computer and find out the specifications but I need to know what kind:
A Toshiba? Hewett Packard? Lenovo? Asus?

When you have time run this command in the terminal it will help.
Code:
lspci
