Sirs-
     I have built a gaming computer system ECS Z97 Machine and Intel I5 4600 Proc.
I have unit fired up and working, have a Verizon jetpack as I am on the move most of the time. I have a netgear usb Wi-Fi
antenna installed. I have installed Linux Ubuntu for the time being as Windows is so expensive. Will do Windows down the line. But can't seem to get my Wi-Fi to connect. Don't know how to edit particulars such as BSSID. Please help me to connect this. Also, are there any games which work well in Linux? I have a heavy duty ASUS 2GB video card installed but appears that must have windows to install drivers, or does Ubuntu do this automatically? Please help-Thanks!

For one thing I wouldn't use Ubuntu for this. There are other Linux OS's (some of the Ubuntu based), which are much better, have a more usable User interface, perform better, and they support more hardware out of the Box. One such distro is Makulu Linux, there is a new XFCE version 7 that was recently released (the other releases are debian based), and I can really recommend it. It is likely that wireless will work out of the Box, and it includes PlayOnLinux which can be used to run Windows software, including games, and also Steam, which is also geared to playing games. So rather than trying to help you getting Ubuntu running, which I think is a bad option, I suggest you try Makulu:
