It appears there is a driver available directly from Asus, and is available for Linux. One is just a driver, while the other includes some sort of client.

Just extract the file, then cd into the directory. Run ./configure along with make and make install

I distinctly remember the driver from that site not working... –  Not a Name Mar 10 '12 at 21:35
    
You likely installed it wrong then. –  Simon Sheehan Mar 10 '12 at 21:36
    
Considering the question is "how to install", that makes the answer still wrong. –  Not a Name Mar 10 '12 at 21:37
    
@NotaName there, installation instructionsf or you. –  Simon Sheehan Mar 10 '12 at 21:39
    
Actually, it was a compile error. Frankly I know the bin worked. so w/e. Better solution is to buy a new adapter either way. –  Not a Name Mar 10 '12 at 21:42

Find the bin file, this might be it, but I can't test anymore, you can then use sudo nautilus to move it into the firmware folder, then reboot.

Warning: The driver causes your OS to hang occasionally and does not work properly. I advise you to get a new wireless adapter. I guess that's why the driver wasn't included out of the box...

Can you provide a link to said file? –  Simon Sheehan Nov 21 '11 at 21:52
    
I cant remember exactly what the name was, because I installed a new operating system over the old one, but it was like rt3070.bin, or something. –  Not a Name Nov 21 '11 at 22:01
