Wireless not working


I installed linux (Manjaro) on an old Fujitsu siemens amilo pro laptop. The wireless internet does not want to work. Obviously needs some fettling, I just do not know how. (lspci -k) shows that there is a Ralink RT2500 802.11bg card. How do I get it to work please?

According to this page the driver should be included in lastest kernels. Check your kernel version. Try with latest version of Manjaro or with linux Mint..

Replacing the wireless card solved the problem. Thankyou.
