Hey guys, was just wondering, as the rt2500 is supposed to be recognised by Fedora out of the box, albeit with not so great drivers I hear. But my card is alas not showing up it seems. I've tried lspci and get a command not found, so I guess thats a debian based thing, as I've only used ubuntu thus far really.
So I don't really know if this is normal, and I should just go ahead and try to manually install the drivers or what. I can't be lugging my machine down to the router to connect it with a normal ethernet cable as it sits in a narrow hall, so will need to do all configuring on my desktop manually. I was hoping it would just work, as I had Sabayon installed previously and the rt2500 *kind of* worked on there without any config needed.
So should i just do the ndiswrapper method which to be honest is slightly confusing for someone new who expected his rt2500 to just work as it's in the list of supported wireless cards at the fsf hardware page.
Any help for the clueless newbie much appreciated.
Edit: Ok, KInfoCenter tells me that it is a RT2561/RT61
rev B 802.11g, but that's the only place that the card shows up.
Sooo, does that mean it's not specifically an rt2500 or what? The fsf list the Conceptronics C54Ri as being compatible, and that is definitely the model I have.
