    To provide some more information, can you bring up a console, and copy/paste the output of this command: /sbin/lspci

    This should help identify your card.

    At a guess, I would think that you could use the madwifi driver package OR ndiswrapper with the current XP drivers for your card. But run the above command - you'll get more informed advice that way.

    Your device looks to be an Attansic L2 ethernet adapter. The driver for this device is not included in the mainstream Linux kernel. To use this device, you need to download and install the L2 driver from Attansic.

    Your other option is to install a PCI ethernet card known to work with Linux.

    You can often pick up second hand cards very cheaply - the 3Com 3c509 cards work well.

    If you decide to try to build the kernel driver for the L2, you will need to make sure that you have installed the kernel sources as well as the GCC compiler and build tools.

    You can do that in Yast -> Software Management. In the Filter drop-down, select Patterns.

    Scroll down to Development and make sure these are ticked: Base Development, C/C++ Development, Kernel Development. Install them as needed.

    Hope that gets you started.
