You need to find out the driver that supports your wifi card. Google and looking at the manufacturer of your wifi card will help. Once you find out the module, do a lsmod and see if the module is loaded. To see which ip address is associated to your wifi card, do: iwconfig -a

To "do lsmod": Open a terminal, write "lsmod" (without quotes) and press enter.

To "Open a terminal": It depends on what you are using.
- If you are in text-mode and working with linux, then you are already in a console (or terminal).
- If you are using X with (let me say) KDE, you should be able to find a program "X-Terminal" or "Console" or "Konsole" or something like that in the menus. Same applies, I guess, for most of the Desktop or Windows managers.
- Anyway, you can always press CONTROL+ALT+F2 and login and then "do lsmod". To go back to X, logout (do "exit") and then CONTROL+ALT+F7.

Good luck...
