Question inf file needed

I bought the DG834N Rangemaster Next because I read that it was Linux friendly and it is - so no complaints there.

At the same time I bought an USB Rangemaster Next adapter (WN111) and, silly me, I assumed as it was to be worked with the DG834N it would be Linux friendly as well.

So in these difficult times it looks like I have wasted nearly 150.

Several people have told me that people on Netgear forums are very unhelpful towards Linux users but I find this difficult to believe. In general, if you give enough detail, most people don't take sides in the operating system wars. And lets face it, in these troubled times, things are going to get worse before, and if, they get better.

The disk that came with the WN111 does not have an INF file that I need as it is hidden in an EXE file which is a little beyond my expertise.

If anyone has managed to extract this file, could they please send it to me at ampers (I am on gmail.com)

Thank you ever so much in advance.

If they're attempting to configure and use ndiswrapper in Linux, it will definitely help.
