http://ubuntuforums.org – I just stumbled my way through an installation of Ubuntu 13.04, but cannot get my netgear wireless lan adapter to work. it is recognized by the computer, and uses a Ralink RT3573 chipset, i used the lsusb command to find out. I downloaded a driver, but I don't know how to compile it. I don't even know what compiling is, and I only know a few basic terminal commands that were spelled out step by step on the internet. Is there anything else you need to know about my computer's specs in order to help me? I downloaded the RT3573sta linux driver from http://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_WNDA4100 (Hardware)
