    You'll probably need some sort of driver for it, but which driver you need depends on the chipset it uses. Open up a terminal and type
    Code:
    lsusb
    to find out which chipset you've got.

    Try here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WirelessNetworking , here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WiFiHowto and here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WifiDocs/Dri...iswrapperHowto .
    As Giles says make sure you identify chipset - seems to be only a couple of choices tho for your adapter which is lucky.
