    Question Can't configure Realtek driver for Edimax EW-7811Un?

    I've read many other threads and tutorials on how to install this specific wifi adapter, yet I'm having a problem nothing has solved.

    First, I downloaded the latest driver from here.

    Afterwards I opened "/etc/modules.d/blacklist.conf" in gedit in sudo mode, and pasted the following at the bottom:

    Code:
    # Blacklist native RealTek 8188CUs drivers
    blacklist rtl8192cu
    blacklist rtl8192c_common
    blacklist rtlwifi
    Then I opened the terminal, located the extracted driver folder, and typed

    Code:
    sudo bash install.sh
    After all the articles and tutorials I've read, I thought this was going to work. Instead, I got this:

    Code:
    ##################################################
    Compile make driver error: 2
    Please check error Mesg
    ##################################################
    I read somewhere that this problem was due to not having a Linux header package. I have, however, had this package the entire time, up to date.

    I'm really new to Ubuntu, and Linux in general. I have no idea where to turn from here.

    Can anyone please explain this problem to me in a beginner-friendly way? Thanks much.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention what ubuntu version I'm using. I'm using 13.10.

    Re: Can't configure Realtek driver for Edimax EW-7811Un?

    Without seeing the exact error, it's very hard to troubleshoot. I compiled the package and got lots of errors like this:
    /os_dep/linux/os_intfs.c:637:7: error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type
    I am assuming that the package was written for an earlier kernel and gcc version than that included in Ubuntu 13.10.

    I suggest we troubleshoot your existing rtl8192cu before we try to hammer this older driver into service.

    If we decide a newer driver is the best option, let's try this instead: https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes
    This is a port of Realtek's own 8192cu driver for USB Wifi chipsets, ported to kernel 3.11 as ships with Ubuntu 13.10.
    I expect you may need a bit of assistance to build a driver from github.

    What is happening or not with the built-in rtl8192cu?

    I'm afraid that's all I know. I downloaded the file from github, but the installation instructions make no sense to me whatsoever.

    Re: Can't configure Realtek driver for Edimax EW-7811Un?

    The Edimax EW7811-UN is a wireless USB adapter that complies with the 802.11b/g/n IEEE standards. The device has a Realtek RTL8188CUS based chipset which has support for Windows, Mac & Linux.
    1) Insure that the 7811uN device is not plugged into any USB port on your computer.
    2) Insure that no similar driver is loaded on your machine with "lsmod | grep 8192".
    If the result shows that the "8192cu" driver module is loaded, you have nothing left to do.
    If the result is nil,continue with this installation.
    If it shows some other "...8192..." driver, uninstall it with
    "rmmod -r ".
    3) In your favorite browser navigate to <a href="http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/" rel="nofollow">www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/</a><br>4)
    Since links may change with time, drill down to the download from this webpage by selecting (starting in the left hand panel under "Downloads")
    Communications Network ICs --&gt; Wireless LAN ICs --&gt; WLAN NIC --&gt;IEEE 802.11b/g/n Single Chip --&gt; Software
    5) Now you are on the "Software: Drivers and Utilities" page. Under "Step 1. Select one or more models"check the box by RTL8192CU.
    Now click on the "go" button under "Step 2."
    6) The new webpage should be subtitled "RTL8192CU". Under "Unix (Linux)", click on a mirror site for the "Linux Kernel 2.6.18-2.6.38 and Kernel 3.0.8 Version 3.4.4_4749" download.
    Note that the name<br> and revision of this download may change as Realtek updates the driver.
    7) The driver file will be downloaded as appropriate for your browser.
    The file downloaded as of this writing is RTL8192xC_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105.zip.
    8) Create a directory ~/temp (or some convenient name like that).
    Code:
    mv ~/Downloads/RTL8192xC_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105.zip ~/temp/
    cd ~/temp
    tar xvf RTL8192xC*.zip
    cd ~/temp/RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_3.4.4_4749.20121105
    13) Invoke the installation script with
    Code:
    ./install.sh
    14) Plug the 7811uN into a USB port on your computer.
    15) Check that the module was installed by running
    Code:
    lsmod | grep 8192
    16) Now configure the wireless device using the network configuration tools of your Linux distro.

    RTL8192xC_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105.zip
    This old-timer will NOT compile on Ubuntu 13.10. Please do not waste your time.
    6) The new webpage should be subtitled "RTL8192CU". Under "Unix (Linux)", click on a mirror site for the "Linux Kernel 2.6.18-2.6.38 and Kernel 3.0.8 Version 3.4.4_4749" download.
    Ubuntu 13.10 uses kernel version 3.11.0-xx which is incompatible with the package mentioned.

    As I also said previously, I'm new to Linux and the lingo that surrounds it... I don't know how to troubleshoot the driver, and I have no idea what's happening with it. I didn't even know there was a built in rtl8192cu.

    I apologize. Let's go back to basics and I'll try harder to explain what we're doing.

    First, let's see specifically what wireless device you have and go forward after we know the facts. We will work from the terminal since that is the easiest way to gather information quickly. Please insert your Edimax, open a terminal Ctrl+Alt+t and run and post:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Thanks.

    I will do better in the future.
