I have never used mint. So, my answer would be biased towards Ubuntu. Maybe you want to wait for other replies ?

mostly, everything works from scratch. But if you have exotic hardware, you might need some extra drivers. Just run Ubuntu from a live disk first and check whether everything is working.

You can always download the .deb file from an internet connected machine, and then come back home and install it from that .deb file.

If you put it in the apt cache folder first, it will even install via apt.

Thanks. I never knew I could install packages that way. Worked like a charm. I had to manually download the dependencies, though.

Booted Ubuntu 13.10 from USB (didn't install it. Chose "Try Ubuntu"). I installed the build-essential package and then used the following commands to install "rt5370sta" module.

Code:
sudo su
make
make install
modprobe rt5370sta

As I hadn't installed the Ubuntu, I just restarted the module instead of restarting the PC using the following command.

Code:
modprobe -r rt5370sta

There were no errors. But, still I was not able to get my Wireless Adapter working. Can someone help me?

There is no need to format it. Just don't mess around with the stuff which was already there.

Bumping this thread with a guide that I created for Ubuntu in January 2015.

Link in signature (Ubuntu Guide for Newbies).

I wrote guides from a perspective of someone who is using Windows, and is totally new to Ubuntu. And then I indexed at one place in that link. It would help if people who are already using Ubuntu can suggest on the quality of the guides and anything that I can add.

I realized tapatalk users can't view links in signature.. So guide is The Ubuntu Guide | Vineet Kumar
