Don't worry about the launchpad registration, that's for people
looking to become members of the team and contribute their time. I'm
not up to date on wireless cards, but I am cc'ing this email to our
mailing list (ubuntu-us-ma AT lists.ubuntu.com) and hopefully somebody
else can help you. Send any other questions there please.
http://www.ubuntuforums.org and http://wiki.ubuntu.com are great resources.
