Need to configure TP-link TL-wn725n in Ubuntu server.

I recently installed Ubuntu 17.04 Desktop. I'm some what pleased with it, primarily because it is a free distro. But now I have found myself in the same boat I was in 30 years back, when I was teaching myself DOS.

I have installed Ubuntu Server on a separate machine just to tinker with and learn. This version of Ubuntu doesn't install a GUI. I have searched and found information on how to install the GUI using terminal commands. The problem is these commands depend on a Internet connection, and Ubuntu isn't configured to utilize my TP-Link USB WIFI adapter. I can't configure the WIFI because, like the GUI, I need the Internet to do so.

I also have a LINKSYS Wireless-G PCI adapter but I couldn't even get it to work in the first computer. I can't wire to the router because I'm piggy backing on my neighbors ISP via WIFI. I'm not sure I would have any better luck trying to get the ethernet NIC working.

The only option I can think of is, download driver and utility packages to the first computer and migrate them to the second. If this is possible it presents it's own problem. I wouldn't know which directory to place these files in.

If anyone could give some sound advice or point me towards learning resources I would appreciate it.
