Just FYI, this card works for me with 8.04.

(I had some problems connecting to a WPA2-protected hidden network,
which were fixed by installing linux-backsports-modules-hardy, which
then broke suspend; but that but got fixed recently.)

Can you describe the symptoms?  For example, do you use Network Manager
(the little icon in the panel)?  Does it see that you have a wireless
card?  Does it see wireless networks?  Does it try to connect and then
fail?  Is the network you're trying to connect to open, or does it use

Looking for errors in /var/log/daemon.log may also be informative.
