Correct... I was thinking it would be similar to:

$ lspci -v | grep Ethernet
01:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82562EZ 10/100 Ethernet
Controller (rev 01)

from my system.

But now that we know what the device actually is:
00:0b.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI
Subsystem: Linksys WMP54G ver 4.1
Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 32, IRQ 9
Memory at efff0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=32K]
Capabilities: <access denied>

maybe we can narrow down the problem.


<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardwareSupportComponentsWirelessNetworkCardsLinks ys>
then again...
[Flawless, easy, fast setup of Linksys WMP54G.]
[Linksys WMP54G v4.1 on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy (step-by-step)]

Hopefully someone on the list with a WMP54G ver 4.1 will step in to assist.
