comment Ubuntu 14.10 wireless driver
This is a hardware problem, not a driver problem. hardware switch means a physical switch or button. A driver won't fix it.

comment Replacing WIndows 7 with Ubuntu
Remember Ubuntu does not run Windows programs like itunes. If you have done your research and know that Ubuntu has all the programs you will need. Then do it. Best of luck.

comment Replacing WIndows 7 with Ubuntu
Backup and or copy the few important files you have into an external device. Boot from the Live DVD/USB. Choose "Try Ubuntu without installing." Check everything works. Then install if Ubuntu works fine. I cannot guarantee it, but most probably the PC will boot Ubuntu when the installation is done. The reason you don't get the option to install alongside is because your computer came with 4 primary partitions. See askubuntu.com/questions/149821/…

comment Ubuntu 14.10 not available through software updater?
It is my understanding that Canonical pushes out software updates in batches. That is, the "New upgrade available" notification does not pop up in every computer in the world with Ubuntu the instant the new version is released. You may have to wait a few days for it to come to you.

Please edit your question with the new information about the WiFi adapter and what problems you had with following the guide. Not everyone will read through 7-8 comments to find out what the problem may be.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about hardware recommendation.

comment Trying to change access to folders and files on a USB device
@RPiAwesomeness should be sudo chown ray:ray /media/ray/1768-274C where the first ray is the user and the secone ray is the default group of the user ray. However, this won't change anything, as this should be (and is, as per the first part of the question) the default.
