If its a wmp11 v2.5 and below, its just another prism2 card:

/sbin/modprobe orinoco_pci
ifconfig ethX up
iwconfig ethX essid nameofnetwork
dhclient ethX

Might need to add an "iwconfig ethX enc 21321321" if you're running encryption.

If its the WMP11 v2.7, that's a broadcom card that is not currently covered by any linux drivers.

Get stuck, post back,
