    Well i have successfully got the card up and running. The green light is flashing now lol. My problem is how do I get it to connect to my wireless network. I put in the correct ESSID name and WEP key, but still it wont connect. I have used one of the WLAN sniffers and can see all of the available networks but cant connect. What can i do? Thanks

    Well still no luck i have been working on this piece of **** for some time now. Anyone got any ideas on whats wrong?

    When I try to log on use the supplied network manager it acts like its logging on and then just stops. It shows available networks so its working it just wont connect to any network. I even tried some without security and still nothing. I have also done as root iwconfig wlan0 ESSID my essid. Then iwconfig wlan0 ket restricted my key. When i do this from the terminal the connection light stops flashing and is solid. The problem is my network manager still says offline and i cant access the internet. WTF is going anyone have any advice i have tried just about everything.
