    I have a NetGear N600 Wi-Fi Adapter which Windows automatically detects. However, Elementary OS Luna won’t detect it. Thus, I can’t connect to the Internet. Is there I driver I need to download or build? Any suggestions?

    Can you connect TEMPORARILY by cable?

    You first need to find out what chip your wifi has. What is the output of: sudo lspci |grep Network
    Can you copy and paste the result here?

    Have you looked at the Youtube video "How to get Wifi on Elementary OS" - although it deals with Broadcom and it might be of limited use if you don't have the same - but it mentions Additional Drivers.

    Looks like that has a Broadcom BCM4323. I get the impression there's no compatible linux driver, so your best bet would be to have a go at using NDIS wrapper.

    I've used it for an unsupported Atheros chipset, and it worked pretty well for that.
