I'm having trouble with my ethernet connection

I’m trying to “install” the wifi option in the latest version of ZorinOS, so I bought an usb cable adapter to an ethernet connection, but it doesn’t read it. In Windows it appears as a CD and works as an ethernet connection, but it seems that I can’t use it in Zorin.

What should I do? Buy another usb adapter? Try another Linux distribution?

Any help is welcome.

Renato, welcome to the forum.

This is an often asked question for Debian and Ubuntu based distros. Part of the trouble is that a USB internet connection is modular; you can unplug it and plug it into a different port…
Not being static, the drivers do not claim it.
Please read through this thread and see if any of the information is helpful or applies to your system:

I have never used one of those devices, but perhaps others on here have.
