How about telling us what wireless card is in your computer. Check lspci and lsusb the info should be in the output of one of those commands.

You still haven't told us what kind of hardware it is. Please run "lspci" and post the output.

The driver for your wireless card has been in the kernel since 2.6.27. It's been problematic in the past, but has been used successfully. In the following link, the instructions are pretty good, so no need for repeating them here:

Hi everybody.
I am not sure who to thank. All the contributions helped somewhere along the line. The wireless problem, connecting with an asus laptop m51v is now solved. The many steps involved, culminated in my putting the passphrase in the right place. Now everything is great. So all the contributer, thank you very much.
