Question Help with Airlink PCI on Linspire4.5

Brand new to Linux. Have a new PC with Linspire 4.5 pre-installed and have added an unsupported wifi pci card: Airlink 54Mbps, 802.11g, Mdl AWLH3025, using Texas Instr chipset and driver tnet1130.inf Installed Windows driver for same using the 'ndisdriver. ndisdriver -l shows driver present but no hardware. The light on the pci card is lit. The Network connection allows me to set ESSID and Channel. Cannot connect to internet.
iwconfig reports: lo no wireless extentions; eth0 no wireless extentions
Isn't there supposed to be something like wlan0 present. How do I setup this interface? What step did I miss?

I assume you're using ndiswrapper, only with a different name. Is the ndiswrapper module loaded? modprobe ndiswrapper should load it, and if you don't see any errors, type dmesg and watch the last few lines. The ndiswrapper should leave some information about created devices and so on (wlan0 is the default device name). Try iwconfig again after the module is loaded to see if it works.
