Hello...I use mepis.It autodetcts all of my internet.You may need to manually input the settings for your wireless card .I use a D-link router(not wireless) and it auto-detects.Mepis is one of the easiest to use and one of the easiest to install to the hard drive....k ;)

USe dmesg to see if the card was detected.
You would also want to start the pcmcia service .

./thanks
