Hi, this is lammi87.

I noticed that the search function used with lspci -vmmnn does not recognize the following device correctly. Do you know what's wrong?

Specifications according to the search results:

Class: ethernet-card
Device: AR2413/AR2414 Wireless Network Adapter [AR5005G(S) 802.11bg]
VendorID:ProductID: 168c:001a

lspci -vmmnn

Slot:	06:02.0
Class:	Ethernet controller [0200]
Vendor:	Atheros Communications Inc. [168c]
Device:	AR2413/AR2414 Wireless Network Adapter [AR5005G(S) 802.11bg] [001a]
SVendor:	AMBIT Microsystem Corp. [1468]
SDevice:	Device [0418]
Rev:	01

lspci -nnk

06:02.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413/AR2414 Wireless Network Adapter [AR5005G(S) 802.11bg] [168c:001a] (rev 01)
	Subsystem: AMBIT Microsystem Corp. Device [1468:0418]

It should not be recognized as an ethernet card. It should be a wifi card. This happened when I was inserting the Aspire 3103WLMi laptop to the database.

This is because there is an error inside the lspci -vmmnn output. The class is 0200, that is the class of an ethernet card, it should be 0280 (wifi card). It's not a h-node bug
