    RNX-N180UB wireless usb not working.

    I am completely new to linux. I am using it for the first time today. I am trying to get my RNX-N180UB wireless usb to work. I downloaded the linux driver from the website and have the tar.gz extracted to my desktop but have no idea where to go from there. It says something about a makefile and a clean and isnmod 8712u.ko can anyone help me?

    What to do is usually located in the README.txt file in the folder you extracted the ..tar.gz driver file.

    There is but it assumes that I know how to uncompress the file which is step 1. Step 2 merely says make. Thats the whole command. I have no idea how to do that.

    Oh gosh. I'm stupid. I was referencing it with wrong command. Okay nevermind I got it uncompressed and then used the make command which worked fine. But when I typed ./clean it gave me this:
    ERROR: Removing 'r8192s_usb': Operation not permitted

    Usually you have to type
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    sudo make clean

    Perhaps the README.txt file instruct you to run sudo make clean
    first.If so, neglect the errors and proceed withe the other commands.

    o\Okay. So when I type sudo make it gives me back Makefile:ll: /config: No such file or directory make: *** No ruleto make target '/config'. Stop.
    So I just used make and it went through and did its stuff. So then I wrote make install and it gave me back
    install -p -m 644 8712u.ko /lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
    install: cannot create regular file '/lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8712u.ko': Permission denied
    make: *** [install] Error 1

    So it tried it using
    sudo make install
    it came back:
    Makefile:ll: /config: No such file or directory
    make: *** No rule to make target '/config'. Stop.

    The driver with install manual is here

    OK I've downloaded it. You must log in as superuser to perform the steps. Type su and give the root passwd. If you can't remember it, change it. Type sudo passwd

    Then issue the commands

    make
    make install



    After this see if the module is loaded: lsmod | grep 8712u
    If not do
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo modprobe 8712u

    Crap wait there is a problem. After I restarted the wireless was no longer there. It worked but the problem was it still gave me the error after the ./clean command.

    Try to put these commands in the /etc/rc.local file and before the exit 0 line.

    depmod -a
    modprobe 8712u



    You don't have to run make again. After you ran make install the first time the driver module are saved in /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless folder.
    Verify by typing sudo updatedb and locate 8712u.ko
