Need to install driver for netgear Wireless-N 300 on old Ubuntu 8.10

Asked by Charlie Anderson on 2016-08-07

It's been too long since I used linux. I need to install the driver for a Netgear Wireless-N 300 usb access point. The device comes with 2 different driver disks - one is version 1.0 and the other is version 2.3
And install it on a Dell T3400 server - [Currently, broke the RAID and am using only one disk]

The last time I had to install a driver, it was the windows driver for a wireless PCI card - which required a wrapper.

Need advice on what to and where to get it. I'll need to have both my hands held on this one.

Later, I plan to upgrade to a much more recent Ubuntu.

Thanks

Please read this:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

Ubuntu 8.10 is end-of-life and not supported in any way since April 30, 2010.

I suggest you wipe Intrepid off and do a clean install of Xenial. Xenial is LTS and supported til April 2021.

The community and Canonical cannot support old releases that are end of life (EOL). There are also no packages for your release.

Can you help with this problem?
