I have heard it would only work with ndiswrapper and Win XP drivers. Might be easier to replace the wifi card with something else

It seems that your second card only works with ndiswrapper and I haven't had much luck with any wifi that needed it

Perhaps https://askubuntu.com/a/226062/300665
It doesn't seem like the manufacturer supplied much help to the Linux developers

It seems that the problem was in bios
The motherboard is Intel's with their bios

There is an option to not run another network card if the network card on the board works
I canceled it
Now the wireless card works
But the line card is not (I'll just add another line card)
