First, you need to know the chipset. It seems that the WE120P uses the admTek
chipset and needs the adm8211 driver [1].

It seems that the adm8211-source package is no longer distributed in Debian, so
you cannot use module-assistant. However, the upstream source is available [2].
There are various HOWTOs to help you build and install kernel modules - Google
turns up a couple [3] [4] that might get you started.

Good luck!
