WIFI Problem

So I got my Linksys broadband router and it seems to work with my other WIFI enabled devices but not my MSI Laptop! Darn!

Here's what I'm doing so far...

1. I install the wifi tools for ubuntu

sudo apt-get install wireless-tools

2. Tried identifying what card I have


and got

04:09.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 rev B 802.11g

3. I tried checking with the wifi tools


lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

ra1 RT61 Wireless ESSID:"DeatoWIFI" Nickname:""
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: 00:1E:E5:48:47:77
Bit Rate=54 Mb/s
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Link Quality=100/100 Signal level:-38 dBm Noise level:-79 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

ppp0 no wireless extensions.

I learned two things...

- That the wireless card on my laptop is using RT61 chipset driver
- That it is detecting the AP but I just need to make sure that the driver is properly installed.

Will play around with the config and will let you guys know what happens... :)
