The link doesn't supply much information about the wi-fi board in your computer. You need to supply information about what controller is used. Mandrake has a program that displays hardware information.
There are some wi-fi products that support linux and supply drivers. Others require a wrapper (ndiswrapper) around a windows driver. To give you an example, broadcom does not even supply the source code for its drivers to Cisco for it's Linksys products. If they don't even support a large client like Cisco, what chance does a single customer have?

I'm not sure if ndiswrapper will work for 64 bit systems. But there may be a way of installing and using the 32 bit driver/ndiswrapper for AMD64.

Sorry I wasn't the best help, but better information about your system will enable someone else to supply the answers you need, hopefully.

At least type in the command 'lspci'

The information needed is what the device is and that will determine the driver needed.

For example, here is the line for my NIC device:
0000:02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corp. 82801BD PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller (rev 82)

The information you provided only supplies the Motherboard Manufacturers name for the board. That isn't the information needed and the website doesnt' supply the information either.
Sometimes even different revisions of an identical product will use different driver chips. It is the name of the driver chip that is needed to determine the kernel driver you need.

Update! ndiswrapper for amd64 and broadcom driver.

The current version of ndiswrapper will compile for Amd64 linux distros. ( v 1.0 )

Go to the home page at http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/ for info, and to download the tarball.

If you need to find the windows driver file for Broadcom Corporation BCM4306, then here is a link of a suitable windows driver:
