As for installation, simply save and unzip the appropriate package for your system configuration, make sure the driver supports your network adapter, and run the available setup file from within the newly unzipped archive.
Afterwards, follow all instructions displayed on the screen, and don’t forget to perform a system reboot to allow all changes to take effect. If this task isn’t requested automatically, it would be a good idea to carry it out manually.
