I want to start using Ubuntu linux but I can't connect to my wireless network. I don't have an ethernet cable long enough, but I was able to use my portable 4G stick or my phone usb tethering to access Internet.
My wifi card is Asus PCE-N53. Asus website has drivers for this card for linux, but I had no idea how to install it. I opened terminal with admin rights but the commands didn't work cause it didn't find the file. I have no idea what to do from there. I also don't know how to use the repository drivers at all.
All the posts on the internet are written with shortcuts assuming the reader knows everything, but I don't know anything. This is my first night with linux and it's going horribly annoying.
If you need the driver's website it is this:
So what I want to know, is there a way to easily get my network adapter to work? I can see that I won't have something like running a .exe and waiting for it to finish automatically.
and PLEASE make the steps simplified, don't assume I know where I'm supposed to go if you skip parts to save time.

I currently have a foxconn fail motherboard with AMD chipset, and an AMD Phenom II X6 1065T @2.9GHz, can't overclock it with this motherboard and its bios.
I'm about to have about $250 and I can either upgrade my CPU or my Motherboard first, and this is what I'm buying:
- ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS
- AMD Bulldozer FX-8150 8 Core Processor 3.6GHZ Socket AM3+
I'm getting these because my current CPU is bottlenecking my Radeon HD 7970 DD.

What's better, AMD Radeon HD 6670 or ATI Radeon HD 5700?
I have a choice between those two. I'm using them for games, of course.

Especially Assassins Creed (the first one.) It starts becoming choppy at certain areas. Some games run SLIGHTLY choppy. Battlefield 3 is awfully choppy. The other playstation 3 we own is fine. I tried quick format but no luck.
Is full format gonna help, or is there something really wrong?

Hey! My PC (desktop) has a regular wireless 802.11n network card, just like the other computers in the house. It seems that my PC gets 1/3 MB/s on speedtest and my internet really sucks. Other computers here get 20 MB/s on speedtest.net.
I have no idea what's going on... An answer that gets this solved or explained properly will get a best answer choice.2 AnswersComputer Networking9 years ago

My hair is about 3 inches long and I'm aiming to grow it really long. I know it will take a long time..
I have a wavy hair, it's not insanely curly, just a bit wavy and it's really hard to style it and make it last for more than 30 minutes outside no matter what products i use.
So... How can I stand it till it's long? I don't look good at all with short hair so cutting isn't an option. My parents keep btching about getting a haircut and I just won't cut it.2 AnswersHair9 years ago
