    Okay. With that info I can work with. I'll edit this post when I find the answer.
    What computer do you have? Or laptop? (Is it Dell, or Acer or sumptin?) I've found some interesting info about some laptop's/computers.

    This will pose some problems... Try to get the drivers from the site here
    Although they are for Windows, see if it will work. If not, I'm sorry.

    ZombiePenguin,
    You need to know which chipset your card uses before you know which driver you need, so open a terminal window and login as root and launch this command, and post back here with the output.
    /sbin/lspci
    I believe this is an atheros chipset but I'm not sure. If it is an Atheros, then you need madwifi.
    MadWifi - Trac

    From the begining you are not telling us your pc's specification clearly. To find a suitable driver for your hardware you have to know which types of h/w you are using. So fugure out this first and then search.
