Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi, I'm running Linux Mint 17.1 and the Internet connections generally works well but sometime it is slow and pages take many seconds to load or the connection fails.
The driver is the wikidevi suggested for my card and signal is good, do you have any idea about this problem ?
google "linux driver for 0846:4260" and you will find few things.
One artcle from 2012 say "if you have performance problems, use ndiswrapper".
So, I would give a try to ndiswrapper (use of windows driver file = workaround in case a linux driver is not the optimal). http://blog.pboehm.org/blog/2012/12/...x-ndiswrapper/
I personally already used ndiswrapper with a usb fritz wlan stick 057c:5601
It was working fine.
Perhaps somebody has a better idea.

I'm not sure if this will be applicable in your case, meaning if someone else can help you fix the issue with your current adapter but if not, another suggestion would be to purchase another Linux compatible adapter, like the one listed here. I personally own one of these adapters and I've never had an issue with it on any Linux system that had a driver for it.
