    Finally... some newer kit has come my way! Now I just gotta get some idea of how to get some wireless going! I got me an Acer lappy, and I'm not sure where to go from here.

    Here we go... Fedora 10 on an Acer laptop:

    This is what I came up with for rt2680 rpm Fedora Core 10 search for your Raylink Device 0781. Waterhead will probably chip in with better advice than mine dude. It seems like Asus uses this chip alot in EEE PCs.

    It looks like this is the wireless:
    Code:
    04:00.0 Network controller: RaLink Device 0781
    It's not giving a whole lot of info, though. Use this command, to give more verbose output.
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    There are three Ralink open source PCI drivers:
    rt2400pci
    rt2500pci
    rt61pci

    Main Page - Rt2x00Wiki

    The latest driver can also be installed as part of the wireless driver package, found here:

    Well, I was following the walk through on the link you provided, but ran into a few issues already.
    Code:
    [root@jason compat-wireless-2009-02-25]# make
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10.i686/build M=/home/jay/Download/compat-wireless-2009-02-25 modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.27.15-170.2.24.fc10.i686/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    Also, this might prove useful (or not):
    Code:
    [root@jason compat-wireless-2009-02-25]# dmesg |grep firmware
    firmware: requesting intel-ucode/06-0f-0d
    firmware: requesting intel-ucode/06-0f-0d

    If you haven't already figured it out, this is the wireless.
    Code:
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: RaLink RT2860 [1814:0781]
    I looks like this may be a wireless-n card, and I don't believe that it is supported in the compat-wireless package. There is some developement on it, and you can try the latest developemental drivers from the GIT repository.

    Rt2x00 GIT instructions - Rt2x00Wiki

    Some of the things that I read about the development say that the USB version works, but maybe not the PCI version. You can try it, but you may be better off using the Linux driver provided by Ralink.

    To compile kernel modules, you need to install a few things first.

    kernel-devel (kernel source)
    kernel-headers
    gcc
    make

    Thumbs up

    Thanks, waterhead!
    I'm now posting from Fedora 10 on a wireless connection! After I installed the components that you mentioned, the connection almost set itself up for me!
