    Did you try using the command
    Code:
    sudo wlcardconfig
    What kind of card is it? USB?PCI?
    If it's a pci card you need to issue this command to identify the chipset
    Code:
    lspci
    If it's a USB, you probably need to install usbutils
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install usbutils
    I think the command for USB would be
    Code:
    lsusb

    I don't think you need to download ndiswrapper or madwifi because it's included with Knoppix.
