    Will installing compat-wireless remove other drivers?

    Hi, if I install compat-wireless drivers will it remove my iwlwifi drivers?

    I need to install rtl8187 drivers for my adapter card but would also like to keep the iwlwifi driver as well, I need both.

    No, it will be updated, too.

    If you do driver-select rtl818x and try to ONLY update those drivers, then a conflict will be created and iwlwifi will no longer work. I suggest you do not use the driver-select mechanism and update all drivers.
