    Is Linux the only OS you have on your computer? Do you have a separate partition on which you are running or could load Windows?
    You'll need to go to the manufacturers web site to see if they have a driver for that card that's compatible with Linux.
    This might require that you boot to Windows first, go online to the proper site to find and download the driver, then copy it to your Linux partition. Then restart your computer, booting to Linux, and install the driver.

    Then that card is useless to you in your present configuration. If you insist on using Linux, you have no choice but to find a different card that's Linux compatible. I suggest you go to an online store to find a card to suit your needs. Due to my status as a new member, I am not allowed to post any URL's at this time.
    I wish you well in your search.
