N300 Wireless USB adapter
Once again I have a question for you folks. I just got a N300 Wireless USB Adapter made by Netgear that I would like to use for wifi on my Linux Mint 12. The computer does not have a wifi card so this is the way I am trying to go. This adapter is designed for Windows or Mac but I was told that there would be drivers or something out there that I could download to make it work on my Mint 12. Could any of you tell me what I need and where to look for it? I am very much a noobie with Linux and in fact not very sharp with computers but I'm trying to learn so be easy with the tech talk. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
