That card uses a Broadcom chipset. Unfortunately for linux users
Broadcom refuses to release its hardware specs to linux driver
developers.

However there is linux software that allows you to use it by
implementing a wrapper for the windows drivers.

You can choose:

Linuxant - http://www.linuxant.com
or
Ndiswrapper - http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/

Linuxant costs money but comes with support and other things that you
pay for. Ndiswrapper is free but requires a bit of fiddling (In my
experience)

I went with Ndiswrapper and haven't had any problems.
