Disclaimer: I'm not an expert here, just someone with a working 
wireless-USB device on linux-ppc.

>From a brief web search, it looks like the support for SiS162 is not 
great.  If a (good) driver doesn't exist, you're just out of luck, unless 
you want to try to find specs for the chipset and then write something 
yourself (or wait for someone else to do it).  If you can, take it back 
and buy a different adapter.  There are several USB wireless devices that 
work well.  Look on the web for someone reporting that a given device 
works, and make sure you get exactly the right revision.  I have a Linksys 
WUSB 11 (I forget which rev) and it works great.
