Im new to Linux. Running Linux Mint Cinnamon latest ver. off a external HD from my Windows PC. Everything works as far as I can tell, but I have an old desktop that runs ethernet. Im on the other side of the house and cannot reach the router. I also am not able to move it to where I am (if i do there's no wifi for anyone in the house) so I bought an adapter. I went into Firefox to see what I could do, only to be greeted with the fact that I cannot access anything online. It works fine on Windows, and has its own software so I can use it, but I want to install WINE so I can use the adapter on Linux, but I don't think I can since I have to download it via terminal, and I have no internet. Thus bringing me here. Is Linux on this old thing a lost cause because of my wifi? or is there an offline version of WINE I can install with everything updated I can use, so I can run the .exe, installing the necessary files so I can run my adapter. The adapter itself is a ASUS AC53 Nano. The only versions I can install software for are Windows 10 - 7, and mac.
