make sure you select to compile your card drivers as a module. Look under Device Drivers -> Network Support -> 10 or 100 Mbit for your card. Then, once you've rebooted into your new kernel, type "modprobe <module_name>" to load the drivers.

I think he would need to enable wireless lan support instead of ethernet support. It is a submenu in network support. Under that are lots of kernel modules, just find the one pertaining to what your card uses.
