First you take the USB adapter, lay it in the driveway and drive over it several dozen times as you really don't have a prayer of getting it to work in this lifetime unless and miracle occurs.

Then, as long as your in the car, you drive to a store and buy a wireless card that is listed as "working" in the hardware database, or lists itself as being linux compatible.
