    I installed ubuntu 11.0 last night. I am very happy with it, except I need internet on it. I use a 2wire 802.11g USB adapter to access my network. I know it works on Windows (officially) because I use it on it. I just want to know if anyone knows of a universal driver or one that works on Linux (official or not, I don't care). Thank you in advance for the help! Below is a picture of it.

    You can probably use ndiswrapper to install the windows driver.
    Check the ubuntu software installer for it.
    Basically,you install ndiswrapper and run it,point it to the drivers
    on your windows driver CD and install the drivers,then go into
    ubuntu network settings and setup the connection.
