Try "modprobe <your driver>" first, to see if the module is available on
your system (if I'm not wrong, no output means that the module is

automatically loaded by the kernel when booting. It is possible that
you'll need also a non-free firmware: configure your wireless interface
first and check your syslog to see if everything is going right: if yes,
you should see something like
