I Need Help Installing a Wireless Driver


I am fairly new to linux and have not done much with terminal yet, so please respond with this in mind. I am dual booting Mint and W7 and have recently instaled a new driver in W7 that durastically increased my DL speed. It still sucks in Mint though so I looked for a driver and found one at http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi

My wireless card is an Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 2230. I have NO IDEA where to start here. The file that seems to have the driver is named "iwlwifi-2030-6.ucode"
