Please note that if a piece of hardware was working on a previous release than the current one, there is a pretty good chance that it will work on the most recent release. However, there is no guarantee that the current release did not somehow break the driver or configuration for that piece of hardware (for example refer to Bug 168618). Please check that the hardware continues to work as expected for the most recent release before updating the for the most recent release in the following tables.

How do I know which chipset I have?
The chipset is what determines which driver you need, not the manufacturer of the card. Here are a number of ways to find out. All the commands should be run as root.
Otherwise use this command if you have a pcmcia card or an onboard card:
Or this if you have a usb card:
This won't output very detailed information, but it'll give you a unique hardware ID, for example 046d:c01b. Search for it with Google or another internet search engine to find out which chipset is on the device.
If there's no native Linux driver for your card, maybe you can use a Windows driver with Ndiswrapper
