If your hardware is not detected you could try to:
1. load the appropriate device using

modprobe drivername

Find the available drivers in /lib/modules/2.6.10/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ (where 2.6.10 might be a different number depending on your current kernel version).
2. use ndiswrapper that lets you use the Windows driver for the device in Linux.


Some cards have particular problems. Start by identifying the chipset of your network card
