My best advice...no guarantee.
You need to download and unzip or
copy from a disk a save (into a separate folder) the correct Windows (ndiswrapper) driver
for your usb wireless adapter.
the set of unzipped folders you are looking for the appropriate .inf
file. (There will be more than one.)
Log-in to PCC as root, go to Network-Internet
...Set up a new network interface
, Choose a connection to configure
; Wireless (Wi-Fi), ...NEXT...
at this point you should be asked to ADD a Driver
...upon selecting this option you can BROWSE through your unzipped folder(s) and install the correct .inf file
It took me two attempts to find the right .inf
file. As I recall the installation appeared obvious...but I believe that a reboot was necessary.
Once you are back to your desktop a Wireless connection/strength icon should appear on the task bar. Your network connection can be made from there or through PCC.
Obviously, you will need to know the password/encryption for your network.
This worked for me. Good luck!
