    Can you boot any LiveCD and start here. Post your results into this thread using the code tags as outlined in the same link.

    Mostly we need the output of

    lsusb
    But, from what I can find, it looks like this device probably won't work out of the box in any distro. As far as I can find the only option is ndiswrapper.
