linksys wireless does not work

Hi, we are a non-profit organization. Recently, we had someone donate 2doz. linksys wpc 300n v1 pcmcia cards. We would like to use these but have not been successful in getting them to work.

I did a lspci and it returned that the card used broadcom bcm43xg. It appears some distros might support it. I want to install a driver with ndiswrapper and getting working.

The problem I having is finding a driver that isn't 32 bit.

Has anyone out there got this card working?

If so, could you point me to a link or driver to try.

thanks alot

I did do a search on clusty before posting. I don't use google due to their lack of protecting your privacy.

An extensive search did not turn anything up.
