The Painful WPC11

I have been trying to get my WPC11 (version 3) card to work for 2 weeks now under Mandrake 10 OE. And I started using Linux 2 weeks ago. ( )

I've poured over results in Google (gone to the 15th page) , forums, everywhere. I can't find a solution that will work with my card.

My thought is that it Mandrake isn't finding my card and doesn't know its there, as its not showing up in my hardware profile.

What can I do to get this to work? This is getting very frustrating, sense I know this card works. I know the card isn't damaged in any way as it works with WinXP.

My laptop has an intergrated card in it, but I can't use that because it doesn't work with our router.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? Is there any command to see if the card is being picked up?

Well, I got the power light to actually turn on now. I still can't install any drivers because it can't find the kernel source code, and I have no idea where to find my current kernel version/download it. I believe I'm running 2.6.x

I'm also thinking this should go in the networking now... can a Moderater/Admin please move it?
