My Internet card isn't working


I have a Dynex DX-EBDTC pci wireless internet card. I used it with XP and it worked fine. On linux i cant make it work. I have downloaded ndiswrapper and tried it and it didn't work. Can anyone point me to either an open source driver for it or a solution. I have the disk if that is helpful. thanks in advance

please provide the following info:
Code:
lspci # will tell us the pci devices you have in your system.
lsusb # will tell us the usb devices you have in your system.
ifconfig # will tell us what network interface cards you have on your system.
ifconfig -a
iwconfig # will tell us which of your network interface cards has wireless capability 

sudo iwlist <network-card> scan # this will use the <network-card> interface (that from the iwconfig command above) and scan for wireless routers that are accessible.
sudo iwconfig <network-card> essid <your-router-name> # assuming no security (the access point names will be provided by the previous iwlist command).
sudo dhclient # will attempt to get ip-address, subnet mask, dns server information automatically from your router assuming dhcp is turned on on your router.

Issue the three commands at the end of Schneidz post and replace "<network-card>" with "wlan0" without the quotation marks.

notice the difference between your ifconfig and ifconfig -a outputs.
try this:
Code:
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid <router-name>
edit: is there a physical switch that needs to be pressed on the laptop ?

I am running ubuntu 10.10 on a desktop computer and there is no switch on the card. When I typed in sudo ifconfig wlan0 up it returned SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
