I have an ethernet connection to get on the internet but my building is all WiFI. I have a desktop PC that is wired. I dont have a router. I have only a Linux O.S. and no windows. It was installed when I got the machine. I want to use only the wireless connection. I have a Netgear adaptor WNA1100 and I am in Linux Ubuntu version 12.04. What packages do I install or what drivers do I need? AT&T sent me a CD with windows files that wont work.
I had version 10.04 but was told it was too old for the adaptor so I just upgraded to 12.04 and cant find anything but will try. I havent found the Synaptic Pkg Manager yet.
