    I recently install Lubuntu on my old Dell Dimension 8250, and I plan to use it more often than my laptop. I have a few WiFi adapters, but the one I'd like to use is the Sapido AU-4912. The linux drivers are on the "Support" tab on the page linked, but I don't seem to know how to install them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Extract the files, open terminal. Set the path to extracted location, then run,
    Code:
    sudo su
    ./install.sh
    You may need to run chmod a+x install.sh before execute it.

    Between insane and insecure
    Plug your laptop directly into your router and then run the install program.

    I tried that before I think. I got something like a Make Error 2, or similar. I'll check later, I'm using Windows to check for replies lol.
