AT&T Plug & Share Wireless Network Card help

I'm running a 2.6.6 kernel and I'm trying to get my AT&T Plug & Share 6500G wireless network card working in linux, but I can't find drivers for it (So im thinking there arent any for it).

I've searched this forum (and to see if anyone has tried getting it working in linux, but no one has tried =\.

Maybe the card uses a differant chipset, so thats why I can't find any info on AT&T?

I really don't feel like buying another netwok card.

Any help is much appreciated :)

Have ~50ft of cat5 running through the house to my room (plugged into my linksys) for the time being.

Just going to put this wireless card into my roommate's windows box, and get a linux compliant wireless card.
