    Didn't a driver CD come with the wireless card? You can use the WinXP driver from that. Otherwise you would need to download it using another computer.

    You can also try the Linux driver that you have. The installation procedure is still the same.

    I'm out of suggestions.

    You are in a catch-22 situation. You need internet access to get the driver that you need for the wireless, so that you have internet access.

    I saw in your post of the lspci output that you have a wired LAN port too. Is this not working? You really need to find someone that will let you use their LAN to connect to the internet. I thought that if you have a wireless modem, then you could set up a wired connection too. Unless you connect at a coffee shop or similar place.
