    Re: can't get wireless adapter to connect to router

    You seem to have downloaded two versions of the driver? Where did the one ending in "0726" come from?

    In the terminal, type:

    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    ls
    Is there a file in that list that ends with ".zip" ?

    If you see the file "RTL8192xC_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105.zip" in the list, type

    Code:
    unzip RTL8192xC_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105.zip
    which should create the directory "RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105 " in the Downloads directory. Then type:

    Code:
    cd RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105
    Don't type the "cd" command unless that directory name exists in your listing. Otherwise, it will fail. Don't try the "install.sh" stuff unless you can see it in the directory you are in. Type "ls" in the terminal to see the list of files in the current directory.

    I do see the correct one in your attachment but I'm not sure if it is unzipped or not.

    Linux filesystems are case sensitive - the directory is rtlXXXX but you are typing RTLxxxx

    You can save yourself a lot of effort by using TAB completion - just type the first few characters e.g. rtl8192 and then press the TAB key... the shell will fill in the rest of the name for you

    Or, after you do the "ls" highlight the name of the file you wish to unzip, then right-click on it and choose "copy." Then right-click "paste" after you have typed "unzip."

    That's the wrong file to unzip. You seem to have downloaded an older one and a newer zip file. You want to unzip the done that ends with "20121105.zip" .

    FYI, the zip command you typed is telling you you had already unzipped this file and the files in it already exist. Do you want to replace them? Probably no need - hit Ctrl C to cancel this command. Again, you want the newer one that ends in "20121105.zip" because that is the newest Realtek driver, the one most likely to work.

    Downloads has a capital "D" . It is important. If you don't use the capital "D" for "Downloads" it's not going to work. Can't you copy-paste these lines exactly instead of just re-typing them?
