Most wireless cards don't require additional drivers on Linux. Did you try connecting first, before attempting to install the Windows driver?
The reason I ask is because once you've tried to install a Windows driver for wireless, the native Linux driver will be deactivated.
I have a friend that hated Windows 8 so i removed it and put Zorin OS on his lap top. I cannot install the driver for the wireless card. I ran the .exe hoping that it would work (no luck), so i pulled the .inf files from it and tried to install them using the driver installer in Zorin. It fails to install and shows an error code. I tried looking for proprietary drivers and only a graphics driver showed. I'm at a loss as to what to do. Please help.
