    I'm assuming you have wireless tools installed (iwconfig etc). First see if you have any wireless interfaces
    Code:
    iwconfig
    . Usually the wireless device is wlan0 so try this as well
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0
    If there are no wireless interfaces you may have to download drivers for your specific card. Check out the linux-wlan project at www.linux-wlan.org or ndiswrapper (which uses windows drivers) at ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net, they have lists of the cards they support. I hope that helps.
