need to find "module" information for wireless card

I am having a difficult time finding the proper "module" information for my wireless card. My card information is as follows.

Description: ADM8201 wireless adapter
Vendor: Admtek Inc.
Module: = unknown

PCMCIA card brand is a Trendnet TEW-221PC

When I go to the run config tool, and attempt to configure my wireless connection, my only option is a manual choice. From there I am asked to select my "network/main driver" that I am going to try. I haven't a clue what it's asking me for next. All of the configs that I have selected failed, (I used the "auto probe" option) but after that failed I am asked to provide options to the module. It is asking for an io address, and an irq address. I have no idea where to go with this.

I am running mandrake 10.0 on an old Gateway Solo 9150.

I am a newbie so any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have google'd and found the driver module exists here:

Hopefully they have some type of support documentation there if not you may need to get creative with it. Another route is ndiswrapper and I am sure you can find the mini how-to posted on the beginning of this forum or you can search for it.
