Installing Wireless Internet USB Adapter


Hello.

I'm trying to install an Edimax EW-7318Ug wireless USB and I was wondering if I get some help in doing so. I'm currently using Kubuntu 7.4. The wireless USB internet adapter has drivers that supports several versions of Linux including Debian. So I went on the CD that came with it and found the Debian drivers folder. And that's where I don't know where to go next. Keep in mind I'm still very new to Linux, so don't be impressed by this being a stupid question. Also, try to be patient if I don't exactly know how to do what you tell me I should do. Thanks for your time.

I have seen several other places telling me to use ndiswrapper to install the .inf windows file driver, but the only thing I'm able to find is the setup.exe. Any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

That adapter shouldn't need ndiswrapper, it appears to be Ralink based and should work with the rt73 driver.

I'm not familiar with Ubuntu, but a quick google search for 'ubuntu rt73' turned up this:
