    I'm assuming you have wireless tools installed (iwconfig etc). First see if you have any wireless interfaces
    . Usually the wireless device is wlan0 so try this as well
    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 or ndiswrapper (which uses windows drivers) at, they have lists of the cards they support. I hope that helps.
