The "acx" driver is available for support of your wireless LAN device, but is
not included as part of the Linux kernel.  It is required to be compiled and
installed to your system.  The relevant firmware for the ACX111 chipset is also
required to be provided for the driver's use.

An installation procedure for both components is available at

Note that the acx driver packaged for Debian does not support WPA.  If this is
required, use of NDISwrapper[1] is suggested instead.
