hum, I'm not sure that kwifimanager will help you...

I suggest you to have a look on dmesg output.

With that, we 'll be able to help you

I'd suggest downloading ndiswrapper from the repositories and downloading the windows drivers for your wifi card then using ndiswrapper to install them. Really good guide on it here:
