It is a PCI card I presume, correct? Run the following, and copy/paste the results for me, using code tags.
Code:
lspci -k

Please edit your post, and use [code ][/ code] like I have asked please (without the spaces). It makes readability much more better.

LOTS of information about your card all over the internet. You might need to switch up the drivers that are being used in order to get your device working. Or, you just may need to activate your device. Could you post the output of the following commands for me? Sorry I haven't asked you this sooner. And also, just like akuthia said, this is a strictly volunteer-type forum; We all have lives of our own, and we are not obligated to help you out 24/7.

Not sure how to say this without sounding mean, but I am not going to hold your hand all the way through, step by step. We are here to assist, not to be your personal teacher. What all have you tried so far in able to get your chipset working?
