Unhappy Belkin N1 Expresscard


Hello, I am trying to get this piece of hardware to connect to my computer. I got it to recognize it through NDISWrapper, or at least it says that it is there, but when i use lspci i dont even see it on the list. It shows the internal wireless card, which is a broadcom pile of garbage, and thus the reason i have bought this card. There are two lights on the card, neither one lights up, so it isnt even registering that it is getting power as that is what one of the lights is. I honestly dont have the slightest idea where to go from here. Thank you in advance for all your help.

Ubuntu has drivers that you can select under administration.

i tried that, i had to use that just to gain functionality of my internal wireless card, i said i have a broadcom internal, and all broadcom drivers are proprietary.
