I believe your kernel is loading the wrong driver. This has been experienced by others before and you need to run a script (a patch by a fellow linux user) to solve it. I believe the script blacklists the default driver and loads the correct one. You can find the script at Download, extract and execute the script as root.

one of the main reasons for this PCI card not loading is the driver . I just had this issue a few moments ago , and the way i solve it was by installing this driver :

I also removed the card from PCI slot and put it there again just in case any bad contact was happening .
