and this thread


As Kim said you need to determine the chipset of the card.  To do this,

lspci -vv

in a terminal or maybe you can see it with System/Administration/Device

If it is Intersil/ Prism it will be supported with the Prism54 driver.
You probably can't do WPA (couldn't last time I looked quite a while
back).  I have a WG511 V2 around here somewhere.
