Wireless card not working on Dell Inspiron 2200-Ubuntu 10.04


I am new to Linux. About 72 hours in, and I must say. I am quite impressed. Except for a small issue. I cannot seem to figure out how to get my wireless card working. I have used the bcm43xx technique with no avail. And am working on ndswrapper. The good news is I think I have the .sys file that works. But I don't have the .inf. However any way I could make this work would be great. Below I have posted my lspci stats.

Lspci:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML Express Processor to DRAM Controller (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)

02:01.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1510 PC card Cardbus Controller
02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82562ET/EZ/GT/GZ - PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller Mobile (rev 03)

Thank you.

?

Either I am up too late or I need glasses. I don't see a wireless card in your lspci readout and definitely don't see a broadcom reference either. Is this a PCMCIA card and if so was it plugged in when you ran lspci?

Or is this wireless USB? Which means you need to run

Code:
lsusb
with USB Wireless plugged in. I am not a broadcom proficent user as all my chips are either realtek or atheros.

Code:

If wondering how I got the above readout. I installed it from Here

For most others, use(except in Arch or Pardus):

as root: cd /usr/local/bin && wget -Nc smxi.org/inxi && chmod +x inxi
