    Hello and Welcome!

    Is this a USB adapter?
    I found this thread on the Arch wiki.
    It may give you a clue of how to get it going. Mainly, look to post #4.

    Asus A97

    ZTE is a a 3G USB stick that i'm using now to connect to the internet.

    I haven't been able to identify what wireless card i have.
    On the official page at ASUS it says my laptop should have one.

    Can you identify if i have a wireless card from the output i pasted ?

    Thank you

    I'm not seeing one labeled as such. I see a NIC, a firewire device and a modem.
    But if it's newer hardware, it may be called something different.
    What exact model of computer do you have?

    Looks like a fairly standard hardware layout, but the ASUS site isn't very forthcoming with what chipset is involved.

    The fact that there is no wireless hardware detected is troubling. Do you have another OS installed? Perhaps as a dual-boot?
    If so, is the wireless detected there?
    If Mint is the only OS, could you boot to another LiveCD, like Ubuntu or Fedora? Then, get the output of lspci again.

    Mint is the only operating system right now.

    It had a win7 2 days ago and winxp some time ago. From what the owner told me , he wasn't able to make the wifi work under neither one . The owner has minimal computer knowledge, i saw there are drivers for winxp on the official site at asus.

    I will download fedora tonight and run the command maybe i find more.

    Meanwhile i will search for the wifi chipset.

    Thank you

    Asus are mentioning WL-159g on their site

    asus.com/Notebooks/Versatile_Performance/A9T/#download

    seems to be a good direction to follow

    True, but those downloads are for Windows machines.
    You may be able to get them working, perhaps with ndiswrapper.
    I've not had to use it, but here is some info from the Ubuntu help pages, which should work perfectly fine with Mint.

    All of this is dependant on the fact that the wireless chip is functional.

    It had a win7 2 days ago and winxp some time ago. From what the owner told me , he wasn't able to make the wifi work under neither one .
    If you can't detect the card after trying multiple OS's, the card may just be dead.
