well, most of the time those adapters are plug and play.....all you need to do is plug it in, give it a min or two for windows to set it up....then click on your wireless icon in the taskbar and select your wireless network

As mikey11 said 'most of the time' these are PnP devices. There is a setup and troubleshooting guide here: Linksys WUSB6300 AC1200 Wireless-AC USB Adapter

Is the device recognized in device manager?
