You might have some luck with this:
if you've already got the driver for Windows.


P.S. I'm not sure if your card is actually supported by this, but it's worth a shot.

Airlink+ USB 2.0 Wireless

If what you have is an airlink+ usb 2.0 wireless adapter that has the model number #AWLL3025 then you probably bought it at frys for around 15 buck but the chipset for it is the ZD1211 and their out drivers for that under linux I am using the ones from

good luck

Oh and I could not get ndiswrapper to work with this adapter but native drivers are always better even if they are not fully developed yet.
