This question has been solved. Thank you for all your help. The solution was just to downgrade. Didn't even need to install the OS for it to work, it worked inside the installer.
My mother's old laptop was running Windows 7. For one reason or another, she decided she didn't want it, so I took it and installed Ubuntu 15.04 on the laptop. Now before I did this, her Wireless Card inside the laptop went out (For one reason or another, we don't know), so we bought a little USB WiFi Adapter. It's a netgear for anyone wondering. The installation went perfect without any hitches, expect the WiFi won't work. Now I'm not saying it's 100% dead, that's anything but true. I can still scan for networks and see them in the network list, but when I try to connect to my hidden network, using WPA2-PSK [AES], it will keep doing the little "connecting" animation in the status bar, then after about 10 minutes, stop, and quit trying to connect. Is there anyway I can connect to my Internet? Also, I do NOT have access to Ethernet at the time. I can get access, but it would take me a while. My main goal is to actually be able to use the WiFi Adapter, so I can take the laptop places and connect to WiFi. Thank you for any and all help!
EDIT: The output of "lsusb" is as followed:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0846:9041 NetGear, Inc. WNA1000M 802.11bgn [Realtek RTL8188CUS] Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
EDIT 2: I have connected the laptop to Ethernet to apply updates, since I wasn't able to during the installation process (The USB wouldn't work during then either). Currently it is doing updates in my garage, where my router is located. Long story short, I have access to internet temporarily
EDIT 3: Ubuntu 14.04.02 worked just fine. I didn't even have the operating system installed and I was able to connect through the installation screen. I guess 15.04 doesn't have the necessary drivers, or they don't support the new kernal. Either way, I have successfully connected. Now to do some ping tests after the install is complete. :)
