It seems the card is up (see bottom), but can't connect. Can anybody please indicate where it stops? This is from messages log:

Well, it wasn't Atmel. It was Atheros. Supposed to work with ndiswrapper and madwifi. I just returned it and got another that at least works out of the box with my old win98 laptop (not SE).
