I have Xubuntu, Hardy Heron, and an aging TL-WN210 WIFI card, made by REALTEK. My card works well in Windows XP, with the provided software. Is there a way to make it work in Xubuntu? When I browse inside the software diskette, it has a folder labelled LINUX. When I look inside, it refers me to a NASA FTP site for Linux drivers. When (after many troubles) I download the file form the FTP site, I find, not drivers, but something which would be a driver if I compiled it in C code. Compiling things in C is far beyond my computer skills. (I am an ancient historian and archaeologist, and my tiny programming training ended about 1976.)

Will the Windows software work in WINE? I have no experience with WINE.

Thanks.
