It seems there is no Linux driver for it.
If you can open the computer box and physically look at the cards chip look for another reference or manufacturer like Conexant etc and let us know.

Either need to get a card that is supported under Linux  ,or we can try to see if the cards manufacturer(which is seen on the chip) has Linux driver.
