Hello and Welcome to LQ! Your wireless chipset is covered in a number of places in the HCL (Hardware Compatibility List) with some HOWTOs. I don't know if there is a built-in kernel module for that chipset, but if not you can certainly use ndiswrapper. Search the HCL here at LQ, and if you do not find the answers you need, post back and you will get some help configuring it.
