I could have wrote this myself I had the same experience with a Dreaded 3Com wireless PCMCIA card but with a NDISwrapper entry it was up and running in 10 mins. I love it to bits - It just works and is fast and stable to boot! I have tried every distro off Distrowatch to number 20 and have not been tempted away from Windoze but ZENWALK has truly made me a Linux convert!

I tried 5 different distros of Linux before I finally settled on Zenwalk. I'm a complete and utter newbie. I tried for 3 days to get my wireless working with other distros, but to no avail. Just so happens I have the Atheros card, which I've read Linux hates. I installed Zenwalk and had my wireless up and running in under 10 minutes, thanks to their wiki, which addresses my card specifically. If it hadn't been for Zenwalk, I would have gone back to Windows, so I'm eternally grateful.
