Can you post results for

Code: Select all

lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net; lsusb; lshw -c net
From what you have posted, I have no idea what wifi device you may have

I would suggest powering down and see if you can remove the wifi card and clean the connections as it is very strange to have issues with an Intel wifi device that has been supported in Linux for quite some time and your inxi results should have listed the Intel wifi card even if there wasn't a driver present

sorry it took so long, i've never had to crack open a laptop or pc before, so i had to work up the nerve first.
i took it out, checked the connections and then reinserted it before booting it up and it didn't help, so i tried again thinking i connected the wires wrong, still nothing. I'm on ethernet right now, kinda inconvenient for me so i haven't been on linux os for internet stuffs. im tempted to just take the wireless card out and get a power-line ethernet thingy that plugs into the wall socket and get an ethernet cord so i can ditch the windows 7 altogether.
