Check the General Discussions thread for Soldat on Wine.

Just do a Google search for your wireless adapter and Linux, you're practically guaranteed to find a guide on setting it up.

Try installing one of the graphical front ends to ndiswrapper so you don't need to use the command line as much. Either find the package ndisgtk using the Synaptic Package Manager and install it from there or type the following command in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install ndisgtk

Then proceed to opening it, probably from the System > Administration menu, click Install New Driver, and select the windows driver for your card. That might solve your problem.
There are other worlds than these
