I think that the card is properly detected and working. Check out the
results of 'iwconfig'.
Try setting up an Adhoc network :-
iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc
iwconfig wlan0 essid "foo"
Using ifconfig give ip address to wlan0.
Perform similar settings on another machine, give different ip-address and
try to ping between the two.
I dont have idea about the encryption schemes for Managed mode, but I think
using iwconfig you can do all the settings.
