You have linux installed on both notebooks? If so, then run lspci -v and look for entries returned that begin something like this: "04:00.0 Network controller:", post those entries and hopefully we can identify the correct driver for the wireless device (if one exists, be prepared for possible bad news...).

If there is an additional wired ethernet device also on these machines (which is likely) try to weed that out of the data.

open a console, type "su -", give the root password, then type "lspci -v", look for lines with "Network controller" in them, if you see more than one, the card is being "recognized", although this does not mean it's actually functional, if you could post the section of the lspci -v output you believe to be the wireless device, maybe we can Identify it and find you a driver for it.
