    as root, use the lspci command in the command line to get the device id of the netowrk card. e.g. for me, my network cards are as follows:
    Code:
    0000:00:04.0 Ethernet controller: nVidia Corporation nForce Ethernet Controller (rev c2)
    0000:01:07.0 Network controller: Texas Instruments ACX 111 54Mbps Wireless Interface
    Now, the pciid for my wireless card is 0000:01:07.0

    Using the pciid of your card, have a look at this post and see where you can get drivers and such: http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/topic-48999.html
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
