    To expand just a little, if there are no native Linux drivers available for the wireless chipset (and you can check for this with Google, too), then it might be possible to use Windows drivers with a package called ndiswrapper.

    Wireless adaptors can be a little troublesome from Linux because the interfaces are normally proprietary, and the manufacturers believe these are some kind of trade secret to be hidden from their foes, and so the Open Source community dont even get to make their own drivers when the manufacturers themselves are too narrow minded to make Linux drivers themselves.
