How did you install the driver that you found?
What is the output of "/sbin/ifconfig -a" does it list the wifi
device i.e. wlan0 ?
Do "ethtool --driver <iface> " to find the driver associated with
your wifi network interface.
In my case I get the following output:
# ethtool --driver wlan0
Usuall the NetworkManager detects all the active network interfaces
and presents the devices. In your case, I suspect the wifi device is
not being initialized.
