The best thing for you to do is to return your network adapter and get one  
that's natively supported in Linux.

Unlike MS-Windows, where hardware drivers are typically supplied by the  
manufacturer, all drivers for most common hardware are directly included in  
the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel community always accepts drivers from  
active and responsive OEMs for direct inclusion and distribution as part of  
the stock Linux kernel.

Most common wireless network hardware is already supported by Linux, out of  
the box. If your hardware is not supported, return it and get one that does.
