On my desktop computer, I need a USB wireless adapter to receive WiFi connectivity. Using Ubuntu (12.04), it does not naively recognize the wireless adapter. To install it I must use a cd that uses an .EXE file. I have read that I must use a program called wine to install this. How do I get wine without having access to the internet? I have access to the internet on my macbook pro (which I am using to write this). What "wine" files can I download on my macbook that can be transferred onto my Ubuntu computer? Is there maybe an easier way to do this?
-Using lsusb in the terminal, I get the following results:
