How can I install and download drivers without internet?

I have no internet on Ubuntu 12.04.1 so i'm on a desktop so I got to install a .exe program to run my wireless card for my desktop so I got internet access, But I can't seem to download wine or its source files. If I do I put on my usb and boot into Ubuntu but then when I try to open it I get the programs source files etc. Anyone who could help me Please do :| ( I can't install wine from software center since I have no connection online).

Note : I can download my stuff on windows 8 boot so I can transfer files to my usb to run on Ubuntu.

  • What does installing wine have to do with getting wireless working in Ubuntu? Also, this is probably a duplicate. Can you please try the answer there and see if it helps? – Tom Brossman Sep 30 '12 at 14:56
  • If I install WIne It would let me run the .exe program so I can install my internet program then I have internet on My Ubuntu OS and can do whatever like usual. – David Ramos Sep 30 '12 at 15:03

    Are you sure the windows driver for your wifi adapter you are trying to install will work on Ubuntu? I think it would be better to say us which is your wifi adapter and if your machine is 32 or 64 bits and try to find a Linux driver for it. – laurent Sep 30 '12 at 15:13
  • I got My Machine is 32 Bit Ubuntu Running and the wifi adpater is Netgear® RangeMax Dual Band Wireless-N USB Adapter – David Ramos Sep 30 '12 at 15:20

You can try installing Ubuntu drivers from the Additional Drivers utility. That might help.

You can open Additional Drivers by pressing Super (the Windows) key (or clicking the home button at the upper-left corner of the screen) to open the Unity Dash, then type the first few letters (additi...). Additional Drivers will appear and you can click on it to run it.
