But i can get Lan internet two from neighbor. Tnx for all help and support, and wasted time on newbie(me)
You shouldn't need drivers. Wine and CrossOver both use the Linux drivers. If you don't understand how this works, just trust me, you don't need to install drivers in Wine.

For an aircard like you're describing, it's usually a crapshoot. However, Vodafone seems to have Linux drivers available, so I'd check that out.

Depends. How long has it been like that? I would say over 5 minutes and you have deeper problems.

No, I think either something's wrong or it's just to heavy for your system. Give Lubuntu 14.04 or Zorin OS 9 Lite a try instead.
