I found another thread that had the following instructions to get a wireless card working:
1. compile and install ndiswrapper
2. install windows driver
a. lspci -n (find device id number) (mine is 104c:9066)
b. ndiswrapper -i whaterver.inf
c. ndiswrapper -d 104c:9066 whaterver (name of driver file without the extension)
d. ndiswrapper -hotplug
e. ndiswrapper -l ( will list installed driver files)
f. ndiswrapper -m (writes config for modprobe)
modprobe ndiswrapper (light should now appear on card)
**Need to have the wireless tool package installed**
