    Code:
    lsusb
    if that is not the case, something is wrong for it to not be able to detect the card

    if you can get your desktop plugged into the wired network at least temporarily this guide should work

    gonna be pretty hard to do this without a wired connection, try typing this in terminal
    Code:
    sudo modprobe zd1211
    there won't be any output if the command worked

    check to see if in the upper right corner of the screen the wireless network starts to show up, it might take up to a minute for the driver to start working after that, otherwise it will be VERY difficult to do the driver without internet connection

    the guide I posted can be performed "offline" though it will be a pain, you will have to download the driver and burn it to a disc or save it to a flash drive on a machine that has internet, then transfer it to the desktop, the other items can be performed without a net connection by using the cdrom as a software source
