    Unless you have the exact same wireless device, WNA3100, I suggest you start your own new thread.

    It's okay, just read the forum guidelines to have the best experience here.

    Regarding the problem, please post output of -
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    Enter above command in a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and copy-paste the output here.

    Also, do you have a working wired connection on the system to download some small packages?
