Hi All

I have installed Ubuntu [first time user] on to my kids PC as it is quite old and struggling with MS.

I now need a driver to make their Sweex LW053 Wireless LAN USB 2.0 Adaptor connect to the internet.

Any help really appreciated, please explain in a step by step guide as I am an intermediate computer user.
