Ok so before my computer completely died i had wireless internet set up perfectly using a "Wireless-N PCI adaptder, Model no. WMP300n" But after not getting windows to work again and deciding to try Ubuntu i cannot get connected to the internet at all.

When i insert the CD to install the adapter onto the computer the window comes up showing the contents of the CD, however nothing i do can get the CD to install, clicking on the setup.exe literally does nothing, and the autorun.inf comes up with an option to run, cancel or run in terminal, in which clicking on does absoloutely nothing either.

Is there anyway to install this onto my computer and subsequently get conected to the internet, ive only had ubuntu on the computer for a few days so am completely clueless, a walkthrough guide would be helpfull :D

Thanks in advance.

Not going to work that way.

Maybe Jack will step in on this one.

are there any more files on the disc or just the 2 .exe and .ini? if the drivers are on the disc it will be a a little easier to get this working but if not there are alternative routes too.
