    I was under the impression this card should be Atheros. I installed one for my Dad recently and it worked out of the box. Can you post the output of
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci
    That should tell us about the chipset it's using. If there's not a native driver you should be able to use ndiswrapper with the Windows driver to get going.

    Okay, I did a little troubleshooting, and it finally recognized my wifi card. now, however when I try and give it a password for a WPA-secured wifi, it asks for a default keyring password. what is this, and how do I get it?
