not sure exactly how you go about this with the live cd setup but you need to
compile your own drivers for this card, ubuntu shows the device correctly out
of the box but it wont work. with the same card i've used this guide to get
everything working
to compile you'll need the build-essential, kernel-sources, kernel-headers.
just make sure you use the /etc/Wireless/RT61STA/rt61sta.dat for your config
changes and not the ubuntu network GUI as it will stuff things up. good luck
