You should try to use ndiswrapper.
Its a program for wlan cards with windows xp drivers.
You can install the windows driver with ndiswrapper.
If you have any luck pls msg me i have the same problem but i think its a kernel problem.
You go:
ndiswrapper -i drivername.inf
ndiswrapper -l to list the drivers.
depmod -a
ndiswrapper -m to load ndiswrapper to modprobe.
modprobe ndiswrapper "to install the drivers to the kernel"
If your lucky it works now.
