    Here is the procedure to download and install it: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...6#post12688576

    Please post back if you get stuck or need additional assistance.
    I followed the instructions on this thread and tried doing:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic git git clone https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8192du.git cd rtl8192du make sudo make install sudo modprobe 8192du
    when i try tun the

    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic git line i get the error message:
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    build-essential is already the newest version.
    Package linux-headers-generic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package linux-headers-generic has no installation candidate
    I skipped it and the rest of the instructions worked fine, I know have a wpa_gui application but when i run it it says could not get status from wpa_supplicant and i cannot scan for wireless networks.
    Also WICD still shows "No wireless networks found"

    Running iwconfig in terminal shows:
    Code:
    wlan0     unassociated  Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"
              Mode:Auto  Frequency=2.412 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated   
              Sensitivity:0/0  
              Retry:off   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off

              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    Which is good because before there was no wlan0, so its definitely a step in the right direction! Any idea why its still not functional though, is it because i skipped that first instruction?

    is it because i skipped that first instruction?
    Nope. If you didn't have the appropriate headers installed, it would have not built the driver and ended in an error or three. Let's see if there are any clues in the message logs and elsewhere:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e rtl -e 8192
    rfkill list all
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    I know have a wpa_gui application
    Which? Do you means Wicd?

    but wicd still shows no wireless detected. And the wpa_gui is a wpa_supplicant user interface, but nothing inside it works.

    Choose wlan0 as interface name and wext as driver in Wicd. Networkmanager is deactivated?
    Code:
    sudo service network-manager stop
    sudo killall wpa_supplicant
    sudo service wicd restart

    Ahh your a genius, the wireless internet was set to eth0 for some reason. Working now, thanks for the help
