you need to download the amtel drivers ??
	- or more like google for: "voyager 1010" drivers


than do some combinations of the following

   ( you need to know how to add new routes and stuff )
	ifconfig wlan
	route ...

   ( you need to kow what the wireless options means )
	iwconfig [ wireless options you want ]
	iwlist scan

	ping  other-wireless-ap

other wireless drivers
