    <SOLVED > Built in Wireless Adapter

    Hello all,

    I am new to these forums, and here is my delima

    I recently purchased a new laptop

    it is a Averatec 7170
    AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50
    it has 1 gig ram
    100 gig sata drive
    nvidia go 6100 video card
    a ralink MiniPCI wireless card that is 802.11 b/g built in and I have yet to find out if it is compatible with linux.

    I have had no luck in finding out what chipset it uses and also what model it is from ralink so that i can further dig into it.

    any help with this would be greatly appreciated

    I finally figured out what I have it is a ralink rt6x wireless Lan card

    Even if there are available drivers you will find a lot of people use ndiswrapper to use the windows drivers.

    There is also a page for ralink based devices. I would suspect these drivers have already made their way into some of the major distros.Ralink on linux
