To maximize the chances of having the adapter recognized make sure it is plugged in before you boot.

If it is not recognized chances are there are no Linux native drivers for it. In that case sometimes the XP driver can be used with ndiswrapper.

This page assumes your wireless adapter is ready to go.

This How To has a lot of good information and links to more, but I think it is a bit dated.

Lists of supported adapters and ones that work with ndiswrapper can be found here.
