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.

first of all what card then open a terminal and type dmesg then look at the problems then. type lspci and find your card and your rev # then we can start to help you see if the thing is even loaded and working in linux after that we will get it working then we can work on configuring your net card. Need more info.
Drakeo, thanks for advising the Atheros chips. Why do you recommend these chips. Are they well supported, ie do the drivers actually work. I am new to Linux so please could you explain in simple terms. Thank-you.
I've had very good luck with madwifi and atheros chipsets on my Debian system. The trick is determining what actual chipset the wireless card has, since the vendors often change chipsets between revisions of what appears to be the same device.
I recommend them for two reasons they have worked with linux to support them plus they do injection and monitoring great for hacking for security reasons.yes they are good at injection so you can hack other wep Id but the reason for that is to let you monitor who is hacking your mac. If you know who is hacking you by monitoring then you can read there mac and not allow that mac to acsess your computer wep and wpa is very unsecure. windows would never let you know this. Here at the University we are starting a wimax wow it is speeds up to 30 and 50 mps wild. and you will be able to use your wifi card to connect. think hard line secure over the air new for the public very old for the military. and way secure. not only will wimax be fixed it can be mobile and secure. good luck
