3G Qualcomm Atheros WIRELESS driver for Gateway

Hi, my wife just bought a Gateway netbook with 3G wifi networks. When I plug the RJ45, I have internet wifi. However, I CANNOT connect wirelessly. I need the Qualcomm Atheros Wireless Network Adapter driver. I appreciate your assistance.

Just out of curiosity, does it show next to your wireless device in device manager?

Your exact model number would help as well.
