The first half part of the job is to find out the details of your wireless card and locate the drivers if they exist. Since this is a usb device, you can try checking the output of "dmesg" right after you plug the device in. Once you determine the hardware details, visit the support web site of the manufacturer to see if there are any official drivers for it. If not, googling for "linux+[your_wifi_model]" will most likely yield some useful results about the linux support status for your card and any unofficial drivers project (a good place to check is also the compatibility list of linux-wlan project). Specific installation instructions should be provided along with the driver -also take a look at the Linux & Wireless HOWTO-, but in most cases they will involve compiling and loading a module for your linux kernel, so you will need to have the source code for your kernel in /usr/src.

If you face any problem in this part, please describe it as best as you can. If you manage to install the driver, we can proceed to the configuration part which is fairly easy.
