    Do you know any place in which I can find the documentation for the minor things?

    Hello marine.fran. I am a Slackware user and have "never" read the slackbook, or much of any other documentation as well. I just don't have the attention span I used to, .

    Anyway, knowing the difficulties I had when I first tried getting my wireless up and running, the best thing you can do is ask in the Linux-Hardware forums. Maybe someone will have the same device you have and can help.

    The easiest route to go, if it still exists, is ndiswrapper. That might allow you to use the windows drivers to get connected until you can find a linux driver for your device.

    Wikipedia document for information about it, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NDISwrapper
    LQ wiki for it, http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Ndiswrapper
