Abdul,

Do you know what chipset the card uses? If you dont call the company to find out.
I could not find it here http://www.linux-wlan.org/docs/wlan_adapters.html.gz
Knowing what is inside will resolve your problem quickly.

Confirm that it is using Prism Chipset:
Farallon Skyline

Then either compile the drivers from source or install from RPMs.

Get the source from Linux-Wlan

Please post results.

Good luck
