    Depends on the chip in the Wireless N Usb Adapter. If chip is supported by modules in the kernel.
    It will work out of the box.

    Sounds like Ubuntu with a Windows Interface. And No. Linux does not work like Windows.

    Looks like you are going to have to read up on Ubuntu and your Wireless N USB as Zorin is basically Ubuntu with Windows Makeup.

    Good luck with it.

    Be sure to have the Wireless N usb adapter plugged in before following above instructions.
