I have a USB N13 wireless Adapter with install CD-- For Windows.
I downloaded drivers from ASUS FOR N13 for Linux. Disregard install CD that came with adapter; it's for Windows.
I then downloaded Windows Wireless driver install program app from Software Center in Ubuntu 12.10.
The problem is me. I am newbie with all things linux; software sources, G Debi, default archive manager, synaptic package manager and the Terminal.

The downloaded driver file is a .zip file.
I managed to extract it to a tar.gz file and then to open it to the contained files. When I use the Windows Wireless driver program it ends up telling me there is no .inf file and goes no further. It wants to install .inf file but I don't even see one in all the files. Can someone please help me .

I think you can tell by my wording I don't have a clue. I hope this is'nt too chatty. I've tried to be explicit and to the point.
Thank you.
Oh, this is on an ASUS LAPTOP K53E. I've looked all over Ask Ubuntu and finally found some questions even on the N13 but they didn't help; still some differences in the exact problem.
