Help with getting bigpond wireless usb to work with PClinuxOS

I hope someone can help me connect this device in PClos as I am now having to use tiny xp to connect to the internet. I have searched in the PClinuxOS forum and googled but haven't had any luck. My system is an Intel celeron 2.8GHz with 1gig of ram and 120gig harddrive. All worked great with using adsl in my PclinuxOS 2009.1 but I have moved and now only have wireless as a choice and am shattered that I can not configure this wireless usb device to work in PClos.I have tried all the ndiswrapper drivers but none of them support my device. I only have a few days to get this working before I have to make up my mind of whether to use it with windows or give up the internet if I cannot use it with Linux as I have to sign up for 2 years. did lsusb in Konsole
