    Tried all sorts of attempts of Compiling and Installing Drivers for this
    What happens? What is the error? Do you have build-essential and linux-headers installed?

    Yes Linux Headers and Build Essentials are reported to be Installed..

    I may have found the Error but not sure how to fix it..

    Here's a Paste of my Error Message :

    When I run :

    sudo bash install.sh

    Aftern some lines of data load I get :

    Please select card type(1/2):

    1) RTL8192cu
    2) RTL8192du

    I select RTL8192cu

    You have selected RTL8192cu
    rtw_version.h has existed!

    I have noticed that it seems that this Driver assumes a Directory of */Arch/ppc/*

    I do not have that folder. Instead I have */Arch/Powerpc/*

    How do I solve the Installation to Install to the Correct Folder ?

    I'd suggest you try editing the Makefile, perhaps at line 556, to change the file to look in Arch/Powerpc instead of arch/ppc. Try the install again and note any errors.

    Be sure of the correct location; Arch is not the same as arch and so forth. Also, I'd keep a note in the folder that you extracted to explain what changes you made and what you changed EXACTLY; something like:
    01-31-2012:
    line 556 of Makefile; changed:

    <snip>.../arch/ppc/Makefile...<snip>
    to:
    <snip>.../Arch/Powerpc/Makefile...<snip>
    There is little worse than getting to step ten and deciding you messed up step three and not having documentation of what step three changed.

    By the way; I am skeptical. My linux-headers DO have a folder arch/powerpc. By certain you have Arch and not arch and Powerpc and not powerpc. Like my teacher at Prairie School, spelling and caps and punctuation count!
    Instead I have */Arch/Powerpc/*
    Please be sure.

    Unfortunately there is no reference to ppc or powerpc in Makefile.

    Ahh Well..

    Using gedit, search for arch around line 556. What is the link to the file you downloaded?

    Re: edimax ew-7811Un wireless usb adapter, problems with linux drivers and ndiswrappe

    I see loads of information with regards to arch but I can see no mention of any reference to the ppc folder..

    The Download URL is..

    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...true#RTL8192CU

    Unless I am seeing things..

    LOL..

    Rob..

    I'm convinced this is a PowerPC issue as my Aspire One i386 runs the same Network Card straight off the bat with no compiling or issues..

    Please try this:
    Code:
    cd /usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r`/arch
    sudo ln -s powerpc ppc
    Those tick-marks are on the left side of my US keyboard on the same key with ~.

    Now cd back to the directory where you extracted the file and try again:
    Code:
    sudo bash install.sh
    Did it error out?

    What Ubuntu version is the AAO running? Later versions support your device out of the box.

    Re: edimax ew-7811Un wireless usb adapter, problems with linux drivers and ndiswrappe

    And here lies the Issue...

    I Installed Kubuntu 11.10 on the Acer Aspire One and Lubuntu 12.04 on the Emac and it still Won't Run !!

    So I think it's definitely an Issue with the PowerPC

    During the install I got a ton of the following :

    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-12-powerpc/arch/ppc/makefilexxx: warning : overriding commands for target `x `

    /usr/src/linux-headers-3.2.0-12-powerpc/arch/ppc/makefilexxx: warning : ignoring old commands for target ` x `

    `xxxx` numbers from 100 to 1520
    'x' numerous entries including kernelversion and export-report and /

    I am also seeing "permission Denied" flash up just after the messages pop up then replaced by the next line.

    Can you help explain whats going on as it's been doing this for over 10 minutes..

    Thanks

    Rob..

    That just strongly suggests that the step we took here was wrong:
    Please try this:
    Code:
    cd /usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r`/arch
    sudo ln -s powerpc ppc
    It appears that the package you downloaded is not going to compile in powerpc. What is it about 11.10 that messes up yout system? Your driver is included in 11.10 by default.

    When I first tried it refused to recognize my hard drive..

    Well I still got no Wireless but I do have a result in that trying :

    lsusb

    Now reports Realtek Semiconductor Corp RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN so now it's recognized just need to get it to access networks..
