Auditor Live Run. Wireless card(s) won't work.

I'm using the Auditor Live Run (Knoppix Based) I have 3 different wireless cards and I've tried using ndiswrapper and the actual linux drivers for the chipsets. Nothing works. I have a Linksys WPC54g V.2 (Broadcom), a Linksys WPC11 v.4 (Realtek), and Dell Truemobile 1350b/g (Broadcom).

When I use the WPC54g:
I type iwconfig it finds wlan0, but the light isn't on and when i scan for networks it never finds any. I used ndiswrapper and when i typed ndiswrapper -l it said driver present, hardware present.

When I use the WPC11:
At boot it is detected. cardmgr finds it and the light turns on but when i type iwconfig there is no wlan0 i used the linux drivers from realtek and still won't work and ndiswrapper says there is no hardware.

When I use the 1350b/g: It does the same thing as the WPC11 but ndiswrapper says driver present, hardware present.

I've used Auditor before and had no problems. I even got so pissed I installed it, and still couldn't get it to work. Couldn't find a Debian pack for the drivers either.

Please help.
