    OK from this post, I take it that I will have to use the ndiswrapper.

    Is this something that I should look up a tutorial for? Any suggestions?

    Thanks a bunch.

    EDIT: O yeah, the chipset is Broadcom.

    first of all look at this>>> http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/topic-48999.html and then plug in the adapter and in a root shell type
    Code:
    lsusb
    and then paste the output of that whitch pertains to your adapter here. (it will look something like this >>
    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 077b:2219 Linksys WUSB11 V2.6 802.11b Adapter
    then take the ID xxxxxx that it gives you and google it like this: 'xxxxxxx + chipset' or check it against the ndiswrapper matrix
