U translate it that it doesn't see your wireless interface. U don't
have the right driver installed, evidently. If your lan is plugged in,
Jude, that may be problematic, i.e., sometimes a wireless connection
won't occur if there's a lan connection present. I think u need to
determine whether or not your wireless card will indeed work w/Linux,
&, if so, the specific drivers for it.
