    Can you connect an ethernet cable, and re-run the command from post #6. Is it possible? If it is, you may as well post the output, and if not, we'll need to resort to offline installation. Internet connection is require to download firmware and dependencies.

    Re: EDIMAX EW7811un Installation - newbie help

    Heyy man, I'm not able to connect via ethernet cable. At the moment i have my wireless router in my room so i can pick up the signal but it wont be here for long as I'm in a shared house. Would i be able to do post 6 with the wireless? If not, what do i need to do? Offline?

    I told you what to do in post #21 above.
    Note, that part is about getting the BCM4312 internal wireless to work.

    Plus, do i need to install any edimax software for it to work?

    Thanks again,
    Rhys
    As for the Edimax, yes, you'll .need to download and install software, as outlined -->here<--.

    Re: EDIMAX EW7811un installation

    Please download this package:

    http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...e_1.14_all.deb

    Save it to "downloads" and install it via:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/*.deb
    Reload the driver if necessary (without stick):
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv b43
    sudo modprobe -v b43
    Check your wireless connection:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    dmesg | grep b43
    rfkill list

    Nope. If everything was done right, the firmware should have been installed, and the internal bcm4312 card should now be working. I assume it does, since you've not posted any outputs.

    i will try this from edimax now thanks, but again i do not know how to do all the processes for installing on Linux (extracting etc) if you could help?
    Extracting is easy, right click the file, select 'extract here'.
    The Edimax EW7811un is just branding, a name on the box, so to speak. The actual hardware is by Realtek, and according to the attached file from post #3, it is:
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 7392:7811 Edimax Technology Co., Ltd EW-7811Un 802.11n Wireless Adapter [Realtek RTL8188CUS]
    ...so, you need to download the driver for Realtek RTL8188CUS, which is what the link points to.

    Re: EDIMAX EW7811un installation

    Are you sure the folder is in the topmost directory of the home folder? Not on the Desktop or in Documents, or something like that. Firefox puts stuff into Downloads by default. Can you post the output of ls to varify that.
    You can also try the installation in two steps:
    Code:
    cd RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105
    
    sudo bash ./install.sh
