Question adding programs from a cd


How do I load programs for a cd on Ubuntu. I can't get online. I need to load my netgear wifi program. Any help will be most appreciated.

Thank you in advance...

Welcome to LQ.

There are DVD's with packages for some Ubuntu versions.
(Most install cd/DVD's are live : No packages / programs.)

Which Ubuntu version ? → $ uname -m ; $ cat /etc/issue

If you already have a DVD with packages, it can be added with :
$ sudo apt-cdrom add
... And you can then search the packages with $ apt-cache search <name>
And install packages with $ sudo apt-get install <package-name>
