Have you edited your /etc/apt/sources.list?
Have you installed firmware-linux-nonfree? The carl driver is supplied by this firmware.

What does the command "iwconfig" tell you?

It should list all wireless extensions (wireless cards) and give you the name of it.

Your card is not active, which means you need to do "ifconfig nameofcard up" after you find the name of the card with "iwconfig". Its not exactly easy to configure with ifconfig, so you should use your network manager.


I have an acer laptop and had some issues due to "acer_wmi" module, which you also have there. You might need to blacklist it! Make a file named "blacklist_acer_wmi.conf" in the folder /etc/modprobe.d and then make 1 line in it "blacklist acer_wmi".

This blacklists the module and does not load it on startup. This is ofcourse only useful if you have an Acer laptop which have some bugs or issues with acer_wmi, like my model did (with one distro, but not another). It was some time ago now, but as far as I can remotely remember it, the acer_wmi module screwed up the rfkill function. (fn+f3)
