Wiki article suggests using NetWork Manager, but since there's no X
installed on this server, it's not possible.
How do I go about installing this card?
Here's the output of lspci -v:

I can only point you in the right direction (sorry!). This is from
memory and from a setup that I've used on Fedora in the past so CentOS
_should_ be similar...
You have to install wpa_supplicant and the relevant configuration files are:
I already have it installed:
[root@intranet ~]# rpm -qa | grep wpa
[root@intranet ~]# ll /etc/wpa_supplicant/
