    Are you looking to find out the chipset of your wireless card? Open a terminal and type "lspci" without the quotes. Or, to narrow it down "lspci | grep Net" should do it.

    Oops, I think you need to be root to run the command. Try:

    su -
    lspci

    You need to include the path with the command.

    Better yet, read this:

    You need to post the results so we know which card you have. Then we can advise you further.
