If you want answer or instruction please provide us more info as to

If it is PCI device output of 'lspci', or if USB 'lsusb' and of course 'lsmod'.

We also need output of 'ifconfig -a' as well as 'iwconfig'

The straight answer is: You should ask the guys who sold you the equipment!
Why should this community be bothered with your problems, if you give no details and expect anyone of us to spend time on figuring out things by magic and immediately.

If you can provide the details for the help. If you have got no time for your laptop, then we aint got any time for your problems either. Be happy with windows.

You want help go pay somebody for help. Everyone around here helps other out for free and they are doing it at their convenience. So do what they ask. If you don't understand then read some documentation and maybe throw in that you don't understand. Don't be rude and a**.
