Hello Leonard
It looks like you might have to use ndiswrapper with this card.
It is thankfully not *that* difficult to set up on ubuntu, here is a
link you might find helpful:


in short,

sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 (or aptitude-get)
sudo m-a prepare
sudo m-a a-i ndiswrapper

you then need to copy the INF file windows provides (usually on the
network cards driver disk) someplace like $HOME/foo.inf
and then sudo  ndiswrapper -i $HOME/foo.inf
sudo ndiswrapper -l will verify the driver is loaded
then load the module: sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

this is off the top of my head, so read up a little first...
good luck!
