Not ironic. Linux WiFi is hindered by vendor support and overly evangelical
Linux penguinistas clamoring for OSS drivers. I, for one, hardly care if
the driver is proprietary or binary, as the device will die after 5 years
anyway, and if the vendor stops supporting it, then I chose the wrong
vendor. A much more important discussion is the data formats I use to store
my business critical data, but I digress.

Define "tried". See my numerous discussions related to Andrew's problem.
If you are able to send us the appropriate console outputs, then we can
help, otherwise, you will continue to recieve crickets.
Ubuntu does not even detect the card. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04.1, to be
So now we have 2 pieces of info (Chipset and OS). As I am not familiar with
the specific device mentioned (nor what it is plugged into), and it would be

2. What steps you have taken thus far. Be explicit and verbose, you can
not be too much of either when asking for help like this.
3. The other commands that I have asked for during every other wireless
card configuration discussion in which I have participated
(lspci/lsusb/lsmod/ndiswrapper -l/filtered dmesg
Given those, we may be able to assist.
