I have just moved back to Ubuntu from Windows 7 and a few months ago, I bought a NETGEAR WNA3100 wireless adapter because my old adapter had broken. I plugged in my adapter and it doesn't seem to work, I also used the windows 7 drivers for it and tried them on the program "Windows Wireless Drivers" and they don't seem to recognize the device. However I have heard you need XP drivers but I can't seem to find them on the internet nor find them on the CD.

Could anyone help me get my wireless adapter to work? Any help is greatly appreciate.

P.S I do have internet connection though I have to tether my phone to my computer and then connect my phone to my router.
