Some of the wireless cards do not have native Linux drivers. In most cases
you can use the Linux ndiswrapper and the Windows drivers.
There are some good instructions on how to do it. I had to do this with my
new laptop. Here is a short description.

Note that for some reason, on my 64-bit system ndiswrapper.ko was not set up
in /lib/modules/..., but I have a few suggested solutions that should work
on my system since I do have the Windows drivers.
