Code: [Select]
su -c "hwinfo --netcard"
and

Code: [Select]
su -c "hwinfo --wlan"
and

Code: [Select]
lshw -C network
will usually find a wireless card when lspci can't. I have seen this kind of behavior before trouble shooting orinco wireless pcmcia chips in AntiX  forums. Trouble is. You need to install the packages I mention in my thread

http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=16796.msg93407#msg93407

to run that command for it to work out for you.

Errr, look up above? For the webcam. One thing at a time. I posted what I tried, to show you on webcam, earlier.
Maybe some other members can help you on that.

Probably means either your wireless card is broke or you don't even have one.

Network and netcard failed also to show a wireless hardware device. If you look at my usb output. That is my wireless usb on this desktop. So you say you have wireless on this Vaio Laptop but I have tried everything I know of to see it. Land Line is all that shows.

Sorry I can't help ya.  :(
