    Those are Windows drivers, they won't work with your Linux distribution. You shouldn't need to install any drivers, as they are included with the kernel. Could you open a terminal and type the following command:

    sudo lshw -C network > lshw.txt
    the command will create a text file called lshw.txt, you can use whatever method you want to transfer this file to the system you are using to access the forum, and paste the contents of the text file into your next post.

    I have Xubuntu 12.10 running on my eee pc 900. Everything worked out of the box.
    After installing you will need to delete the archived install packages and any old kernel images to free up some disc space.
    Use synaptic, there is an option in the preferences to clear the archive and to delete downloaded packages after installing them.
    Using synaptic you can also remove old kernels. Google that.

    Eeebuntu has been abandoned by its developers, so it is not a good idea to use it.

    Try Ubuntu 12.10 or Xubuntu 12.10. The latter is a bit more spartan but uses fewer system resources.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
