    Can you post details? Run the following commands in a terminal and post back the results.
    Code:
    lspci
    lsmod
    dmesg
    ifconfig 
    iwconfig

    Still, we need to see the results of bigtom's commands... Especially lspci, with the card inserted. Can you get online with a ethernet cable plugged in?
