update and bump. i got it to work under wired connection and i installed ndiswrapper and the gui for it, as well as knetworkmanager..
i installed the driver like normal it says it works, but now knetworkmanager cannot find my wireless router..? and i know its there because i have another ubuntu box and it works just fine...
when i run iwconfig... and iwlist scan i dont seem to have a wlan0;
i only have lo and eth0
how can i resolve this..?

"sorry I scanned 1 interface, but the access concentrator of your provider did not respond, please check your network and model cables. Another reason for a sacn failure may be another running pppoe process which controls the modem"
in the terminsl it also says /usr/sbin/pppoeconf: 520: modconf: not found
