This is what i get from the customer service regarding chipsets on this wireless card. Can someone please tell me which drive i should use?
Below is the chipset information for the WL500PC:
Agere Systems Hermes2 WL60010 WLAN MAC
Agere Systems Theseus N4080 WLAN ISM Baseband Processor
Agere Systems Ruby W4050 ISM Band Transciever
i found a driver, not sure if is ok, is by agere systems, www.agere.com/mobility/docs/...722_abg.tar.gz, and i know it is ok for Hermes2 WL60010, so i try to install it, but it says

I am using an AMD Athlon Mobile processor 2600+ (laptop).
I was told to try ndiswrapper, and i did but the instructions says to use lspci to find out some numbers about the card which i can't seems to do it as i can't find out any info about the card or what to do to get those info.
You need to download Windows XP driver for your card. The list of known to work drivers is available at the Wiki entry List. To identify the driver that you need, first identify the card you have with "lspci" and note the first column (such as 0000:00:0c.0) and then find out the PCI ID of the card that with "lspci -n" corresponding to the first column of "lspci" output. The PCI ID is third column (or fourth in some distributions) and of the form "104c:8400". Now you need to get the Windows driver for this chipset. In the list of drivers, find out an entry for the same PCI ID and download the driver corresponding to it. Unpack the Windows driver with unzip/cabextract/unshield tools and find out the INF file (i.e., file with .INF or .inf extension) and SYS file (i.e., file with .SYS or .sys extension). If there are multiple INF/SYS files, you may look in the List if there are any hints about which of them should be used. Make sure the INF file, SYS file and any BIN files (for example, TI drivers use BIN firmware files) are all in one directory. Now use "ndiswrapper" tool to install the driver with ndiswrapper -i filename.inf
