Installing games, configuring a wireless internet connection

Hi, I'm new to Linux, and I have started with Ubuntu. I am having several problems adapting at this point, the biggest two being installing new software and configuring my wireless connection. As to the first, whenever I try to install using a .exe file, a window pops up saying an acceptable/suitable program cannot be found. If I can solve this problem, I will be able to fix my wireless connection, but if no one has any advice for the installation issue, help with a wireless setup would also be greatly appreciated. I need to know how to find the information needed for a wireless connection, which I have on a disc that came with my router provided by AT&T. Can anyone help?

First of all .exe will not install natively (unless you use something like wine). If I understand you correctly, you want to use the drivers for you wireless card? If this is the case then you need to use ndiswrapper.

See here for a guide on installing and using ndiswrapper:

As for installing games, it's easier to use the package manager for that task.
