[ubuntu] Need help with a wireless USB adaptor

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have a DWA-130 adapter rev.A1. It came with a CD and I opened it with wine. After I install the drivers from the CD it prompts me to put in the USB adapter and press next. It never seems to recognize the USB stick I put in. I'm running Version 11.04 and have no access to the internet. That's why I need the adapter. Any help? (Hardware)
