Airlink awlc4030 PCMIA not working with DSL

Specs: DSL, PIII 800mhz / 256mb
I have installed both Xubuntu and DSL on my IBM Thinkpad T21 (each one dual booting with XP),and both linux distros can't connect to any networks. Both distros can recognize the card, but that's as far as it goes. I have done some research on this and everywhere, people said that they haven't had any problems at all. They have said that this card worked for them out of the box. This card works just fine for the XP partition,and it also works in my Dell C600 runing Ubuntu.
Thank you in advance.

Old stuff that still works, somewhat....

Are you using WPA on the router? Have you entered the password for it? Damn Small Linux in particular has a rather arcane method for configuring wireless cards.

No WPA, I started out with WEP, then turned it off and still nothing. But on a couple of other laptops the Dell C610 and a Dell D810 both with Ubuntu it works with out any problems.
