I dont know how useful the output of dmesg will be but here it is:
hostap_pci: hostap_pci.c 0.0.0 2002-05-19 (SSH Communications Security Corp, Jouni Malinen)
hostap_pci: (c) SSH Communications Security Corp <jkm_at_ssh.com> hostap_pci: Registered netdevice wlan0 prism2_hw_init() hostap_pci: card initialization timed out hostap_pci: Initialization failed hostap_pci: hardware initialization failed hostap_pci: Netdevice wlan0 unregistered prism2_pci: No devices found, driver not installed.
The card is installed and as I said is showing up in the lspci :
00:00.0 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD]: Unknown device 3000
00:10.0 Network controller: Harris Semiconductor: Unknown device 3873
00:12.0 Ethernet controller: National Semiconductor Corporation: Unknown device 0020
00:13.0 Ethernet controller: National Semiconductor Corporation: Unknown device 0020
00:14.0 Ethernet controller: National Semiconductor Corporation: Unknown device 0020
