    Question Wifi card off

    I'm new to Unix. After days of reading files - Post If you are new to Linux Back Track or read this thread, I could not make my wifi card working. I use acer 5050 and wireless card is Atheros AR5007EG. I can see on the devices, but i cannot connect on the internet because the power is off. How to set it on? The button in front of the laptop does not work to activate the wifi, just on the windows.Software use to find networks, is not opening. Reading is never enough but need a push. If someone can help me I would be very grateful.

    Then here is "a push". I got one and it works "out-of-the-box".
    Of course making sure that the networking service is started will generally help.
    I would suggest a power up and post of lspci so that we may be able to further push you.
