I would start here

I went through many hours trying to get my USB card working, then went to a PCI card and it came right up, I think mine is belkin

per the following list of cards your card has 3 versions. the first one is a prism2/2.5/3, Ver 2 and 3 are atmel. So you will want to identify what version of card you have. Then look for the drivers you need for your chipset.
