I am unable to get my Asus USB N-13 adapter to work on my Ubunto 12.04 computer. Sometimes I get a connection to the internet, but it is not stable as the connection drops later on. I have been reading previous posts in this forum regarding this topic and I believe that I need to install the RT3070 driver and blacklist and/or disable the Ubuntu 12.04 rt2800usb driver.

I am a newby to Linux Ubunto 12.04. I know very little terminal language. In addition I am unable to glean the information from previous posts and adapt it to my situation and resolve my problem. Any help that I could get would be greatly appreciated.

I downloaded the following Asus USB N-13 Adapter driver from the Asus website:

Full Name (Unzipped) DPO_RT3070_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0/2_20100422.tgz


My system specifications are as follows:
