Could you copy and paste this into a terminal (Applications->accessories->Terminal):

lspci

Then paste the results back here. They actually use a Broadcom card in disguise!

i copied and pasted the command into terminal and it showed me a list of all my hadware excluding the wireless card and things like the keyboard, mouse and joystick. its actually a cisco card. it plugs into usb, not a pci slot on the mainboard.

In that case, can you plug it in and run that command again? Or plug it in and run this:
