    Your card should be already working, though you may have to add the firmware by going to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers.

    This will enable the open source b43 drivers. Unfortunately though this only works up to 11Mbps, which is fine for just surfing and using the internet generally but not as good for moving files over your local network between PCs. If you find this isn't good enough you may consider using ndiswrapper to install the Windows driver.

    My card is working but the driver is not listed on Hardware drivers? I need the driver for linux! can you provide me with a step by step on how to install it!
    I know i have to use Use version 011 of b43-fwcutter.
    Download, extract the b43-fwcutter tarball and build it:
    So i enter code
    wget http://bu3sch.de/b43/fwcutter/b43-fwcutter-011.tar.bz2
    tar xjf b43-fwcutter-011.tar.bz2
    cd b43-fwcutter-011
    make

    I don't understand what you mean by saying it's working. Why are you installing the firmware then? Can you see the card in Network Manager?
