    I think it was a typo: http://sids.sdf1.org/wlanHowto.html - the orignal link points to a document called wlanHotwo.html
    I\'m so tired .....

    it looks (after a cursory once-over) that this card will require ndiswrapper to be installed, and some form of Windows based driver wrapped into service here...

    lspci & cardctl won't help you much when the card manager service can't identify what is sitting in the slot.
