    You can use ndiswrapper to get your card working, using windowz drivers. You can find instructions at the link. Also this is a good howto.

    OK, I am quite confused. Thanks for the help so far.
    I am pretty sure I am at the part where you have to install it.
    Do I type something in the terminal? When I type in something like /home/root/username/ndis.../makeinstall it just opens the file.
    I extracted the ndis file by using this: tar xvf ndiswrapper-1.3rc1.tar.gz and the extracted files is in the directory above now.

    I am at the part where it says
    make
    make install

    You should download the latest stable version and not the testing.
    extract it with
    tar -zxvf ndiswrapper-version.tar.gz
    This will create the ndiswrapper-version directory. Change to that directory with
    cd ndiswrapper-version
    go to the source-directory and run make distclean and make. As root, run make install. This should compile and install both the kernel module and the userspace utilities
    This is pretty simple. Just follow the instructions

    How do you run? Do you just click on it or do you type it in.

    Sorry for asking simple questions.

    applications->accessories->terminal. When the terminal is up you are by default in your home directory. Change to the directory you have downloaded the latest stable version of ndiswrapper. (I usually create a folder "downloads" in my home folder). Then just type the commands.

    What do you type into the terminal to change directories? Sorry for being so noobish.

    Then what do you type in to run?

    cd "directory"
    in the directory of ndiswrapper run
    make distclean
    make.
    then
    sudo make install
    The last will ask you for your root password.

    Thank you so much for your help. I recently moved my computer to my basement so I am directly connected via wire. Thanks again!

    NOOOOOO!

    If you're on Ubuntu you're better off getting the package from the Ubuntu repository, just download the .deb files and move them to your Linux partition. I'm assuming you're using Feisty:

    http://fr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...buntu1_all.deb

    Install that (You'll be able to install it in Nautilus I think) then download this, though you need to select 32 or 64 bit to download then pick a mirror.

    Ubuntu -- ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
