    The good news is this card should be supported. The bad news is I don't know anything about Slax to help you get what you need.

    The driver is the p54, which may or may not be included. Post the output of lsmod

    What you're probably missing is the firmware. All I can do there is direct you to this website.

    Yup, the driver is being loaded. You just need to get the firmware.

    It looks like according to the site, you just need to download the file, rename it to the proper name, and stick it in /lib/firmware/

    Since your exact card isn't listed in their examples, you may need to play around with the names to find the right one. It looks like one of the following should work.

    isl3886usb


    isl3887usb


    You may be able to find more info specific to Slax through the almighty Google.

    Linux doesn't generally use file extensions the way windows does, so I would assume you should rename it exactly as described, without an extension.

    Open a terminal and post the output of dmesg | grep firmware and ifconfig -a

    If ifconfig shows a wireless device, try

    Code:
    su -
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    EDIT: wlan0 is usually what the device is called, but sometimes it's different, such as eth1 or ath0. Replace with the appropriate name.
