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.

i am installing is a dual boot,, thanks for your help anyway!
Good! This will probably make it work. If it doesn't, there is many ways that it can be made to work, since we are dealing with an actual card; instead of some virtual card.
Virtualization can add such a complicated layer of compatibility, because it is no longer the actual device, but whatever the programs wishes to make it. This can cause many problems, and apparently, direct support for the card is not available in Windows VM's.
hi i have the same problem. I'm using virtual box and when i type lspci / grep wireless i get this
Basic display modes:
-mm Produce machine-readable output (single -m for an obsolete format)
-t Show bus tree
-v Be verbose (-vv for very verbose)
-k Show kernel drivers handling each device
-x Show hex-dump of the standard part of the config space
-xxx Show hex-dump of the whole config space (dangerous; root only)
-xxxx Show hex-dump of the 4096-byte extended config space (root only)
-b Bus-centric view (addresses and IRQ's as seen by the bus)
-D Always show domain numbers
Resolving of device ID's to names:
-n Show numeric ID's
-nn Show both textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)
-q Query the PCI ID database for unknown ID's via DNS
-qq As above, but re-query locally cached entries
-Q Query the PCI ID database for all ID's via DNS
Selection of devices:
-s [[[[<domain>]:]<bus>]:][<slot>][.[<func>]] Show only devices in selected slots
-d [<vendor>]:[<device>] Show only devices with specified ID's
-i <file> Use specified ID database instead of /usr/share/misc/pci.ids.gz
-p <file> Look up kernel modules in a given file instead of default modules.pcimap
-M Enable `bus mapping' mode (dangerous; root only)
PCI access options:
-A <method> Use the specified PCI access method (see `-A help' for a list)
-O <par>=<val> Set PCI access parameter (see `-O help' for a list)
-G Enable PCI access debugging
-H <mode> Use direct hardware access (<mode> = 1 or 2)
-F <file> Read PCI configuration dump from a given file
Hi everyone! This is my first post. I am sick to the back teeth with Windows but cannot get rid of it because my wife would not cope with Linux. I have installed Ubuntu 10 on my netbook but need a desktop computer for serious use. Consequently I have installed OpenSUSE on an old desktop and it runs well, even with only 1Gbyte of RAM! I have a wireless USB stick labelled LM technologies and it works well with Windows using an Atheros AR5007UG driver. I would dearly love to connect to the Web using the wireless USB stick on my OpenSUSE 11.4 desktop but plug and play does not appear to detect it. I am determined to learn more about Linux but I could do with some help with this wireless issue to get me started. Thanks a lot. I hope that I will be able to contribute positively in future.
I installed Ubuntu 12.04.2, replacing OpenSUSE 11.4
The installation found my USB wireless stick and configured the driver automatically!
