Not 100% sure but your lspci is showing the onboard cable lan connection.
If this is the case then you would need to load a driver / module for the wifi card.
For 2200 intel card "modprobe ipw2200" for intel 3945 card "modprobe ipw3945" for broadcom 43?? type card's "modprobe bcm43xx"
Alternatively you can use "ndiswrapper --help" and then browse to the windows install folder for the card then get the something.inf to work with ndiswrapper.
"ndiswrapper -i something.inf" replacing something with actual driver name.
Mine = "ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf"
Then type "ndiswrapper -m"
then "ndiswrapper -ma"
then "ndiswrapper -mi"
Next to load ndiswrapper module "modprobe ndiswrapper" and it will load.
To check if it loaded "lsmod" and look for the ndiswrapper with some numbers next to it. = happy / loaded.
Once ndiswrapper is loaded you should be able to run "net-setup" and then see the card as wlan0 or something similar with a name and some model number next to it.
PS> if using lsmod and seeing ndiswrapper before adding the windows driver you would have to unload and reload the ndiswrapper module after installing the windows driver.
" modprobe - r ndiswrapper " = unload and reload = "modprobe ndiswrapper"
"modprobe -r ndiswrapper ; modprobe ndiswrapper" unload + load in one action
It has most drivers for the wifi card. Might just need to manually load the drive / module again.
The resolv.conf on the livedvd had the last time I checked a ip in the resolv.conf some dns in europe not sure.
If you need a dns then this ip's would work likely.

This looks like a lot of info but it is actually very easy end quick.
