    Realtek RTL8723AE Wireless

    Hey guys,

    I'm new to Ubuntu 12.10; as a long time Windows user I welcomed a change however I am currently unable to connect to the internet. Under the network devices area the "No network devices available" message appears. I am unable to connect to the internet via ethernet as I am solely reliant upon wi-fi. As the title suggest my Wireless LAN is the Realtek RTL8723AE. Please help

    This link might help: it provides a driver for that card that supposedly works if you build it:

    So I signed in as the "root user" extracted the driver to the desktop and preformed the following:

    1. Changed directory to the desktop.
    2. Changed directory to the extracted folder
    3. Typed "sudo make install"


    I then received the following error:

    Searched several forums but this one worked for me as I had errors with the make part in other forums. Here a part needs to be commented out on base.c, I just deleted part and it worked for me. http://mlkushan.blogspot.com/2012/10/ub ... s-not.html
