Re: Newbie - Wireless Device "Not ready"
Assuming the firmware file you downloaded is on your desktop, then open a terminal and do:
However, I doubt the answer is precisely that. I assume the driver in question is r8192u_usb. If so, check:It says, in part:
sudo cp Desktop/firmware/* /lib/firmware
That means the driver will look for the firmware files in /lib/firmware/RTL8192U. Therefor, what you probably really want to do is:
description: Linux driver for Realtek RTL8192 USB WiFi cards
version: V 1.1
As you might expect, the wildcard * means copy all the files in the folder.
sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/RTL8192U
sudo cp Desktop/firmware/* /lib/firmware/RTL8192U
Please post back if you get stuck.
