How can i get my wireless card working in fedora core 9 (WLAN 802.11b/g D1705/D1706)

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Desktop with Fedora 9 is installed. Fedora is not detecting the wireless which is built in. Wireless is of the type USB not a pci card. The card is Fujitsu Siemens Computers WLAN 802.11b/g D1705/D1706.

Where can i get the linus driver for this card, or how can i get this wireless card working. Please help. I am not an expert in Linux, Just started learning.

Thanks and regards

it might just be my ignorance, but i haven't heard of usb type built in wireless devices. here's a database of wifi cards with available drivers for linux(pci and usb):

even if your card isn't listed above(which it isn't btw), you can still try using your MSwindows drivers in linux. for more info about that, check ndiswrapper's site:

i hope this helps
