What model are you useing?

Have you checked out the HCL (Hardware Compatibility List) above?

I don't think there are many USB networking devices running around, so support may be limited. I haven't used it myself, but I hear some people are having success getting Windows drivers to work in linux with http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net . This may not be helpful though, in that you may not be able to follow the instructions well as a newbie. (I haven't read the instructions myself, I've just heard that they involve such things as compiling, and you need to follow them closely)

Good Luck, wish I could have been more help.
