I had just got myself a wireless adaptor. I am currently using a wireless g-router as a gateway (ip 192.168.62.1) and all the PCs were accessing internet through it. The wireless adaptor came with a linux driver in tar (zipped) but no instruction. How do I install it?
You have to untar the archive and read the instructions included in it.
Let's suppose the file is foo.tar, enter the command :
tar -xvf foo.tar
then cd to the foo directory and list the content with ls.
There should be a file called INSTALL or something like that. If you are lost, then just post the output of ls.
