Yes, I have been self reliant and already have done research upon this subject. I have a Dell Wireless 1450 Wireless USB Adapter (Model1450U REV A01) that I'm trying to get working with Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop Edition.

The guides I've read have already taught me some but I'm stuck on one part: It says that the driver is invalid when I try to install it. I've extracted as desired and have gotten the correct .inf file. I have even recalled the already extracted DELLNIC.inf file in experimentation from the other hard drive running my Windows XP Professional SP 3 (where it currently will work if booted through windows).

Does any one have any ideas on what's possibly going wrong? Are there steps missing or is it simply not compatible? According to threads I've read from 2006 and 2007, it did once work.

P.S.
