Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The only mention I can find of that device is talking about ndiswrapper, so it doesn't look good.
Does the adapter work now? Can you connect to an existing network, or does the system at least detect it? If it is working, you can check which driver is loaded with "lsmod". If it isn't working at all, that may mean it has no native Linux support, and you will be limited to ndiswrapper (which does not support Master mode with any device).
Just to make sure I understand everything clearly. If I have a WiFi card that supports the master mode than I can use that card to connect to a wifi LAN and also to use it as a AC. Is that correct or do I need to be connected to the lan some other way?
