You may be able to use Linuxant's driver. I had a no name wireless PCI 
card, and their wrapper worked for mine.
You can try it out for 30 days for free before buying it. Cost is about 
twenty bucks for the permanent license.
Only thing is, each time you upgrade your kernel, you have to get an 
updated driver. It was a lot of hassle, so I just went back to a regular 
lan card..
