Dynex Wireless Card not working with Ubuntu


So, I recently dual booted Ubuntu with Vista. My Dynex wireless USB card works fine on Vista, but apparently it doesn't work on Ubuntu. I was told I could probably find some drivers to get it to work on Ubuntu but I've been unsuccessful. Sorry. I'm a complete newbie with hardware. Any suggestions/help?

Dynex is a Bestbuy store brand. Most likely there are no linux drivers for them. You probably have to use ndiswrapper with it.

The first thing to find out is what chipset the card uses.
