I've recently installed Archlinux on my Asus N76V Notebook but the system doesn't seem to detect my wifi card. It is not listed in any of the normal detection commands :

The interface for wifi is not installed :

ip link

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN mode DEFAULT group default 
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00

    link/ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

How can I identify the wireless device and install the appropriate driver?

I use Archlinux, up-to-date, with kernel 3.14.2.

Please identify the specific OS and its release number. –  mdpc May 10 at 8:33
    
Is this a built-in or an external WiFi card? Got any hints about brand, chipset,etc? –  Bruce Ediger May 10 at 15:22
    
It is a built-in card, but I don't have any idea about the brand (though I think it might be Intel or Atheros). That's the trouble: I can't detect it, so I can't identify it. –  deltux May 11 at 8:19
