OK, get a PCI WiFi card from ebay, 13 bucks, works great in Windows after driver installation, (also works great for web browsing using ndiswrapper, but I'll talk later about how I want the actual drivers not to work, not ndiswrapper) I want to get it to work in Linux, has a Realtek 8185 chipset, so I check the website, download a .tar.gz driver file.

Decompress it.

OK, easy enough, got some files, one is a readme, should be simple

(NOTE: Since then I have now run all of this rubbish as root, no difference)

< Installation >
Running the scripts can finish all operations of building up modules from source code and start the nic:

(1)Build up the driver from the source code
./makedrv

(2)Load the driver module to kernel and start up nic
./wlan0up
(if "insmod: error inserting 'r8180.ko': -File exists." met,
./wlan0rmv
./wlan0down
./wlan0up
should be OK.
)

So I open terminal, go to my folder, which is on my desktop, type in "./makedrv"

OK, rubbish, lets try ./wlan0rmv and then do as it says to do wlan0down then wlan0up, or whatever it says in the readme, turns out there is no ./wlan0rmv in the folder...nice, in the readme it says to use it, but it doesn't exist.

Now as I said, ndiswrapper gets it working, but I want to also mess around with some wep cracking (for real just cracking my own for fun) but, when I go to do I think it is airmon-ng stop start or whatever, it says ndiswrapper drivesr aren't supported.

So I need to get this fricking driver working on my system, which is the latest ubuntu linux clean install with all of the updates (got it to a wired connection to download all of the updates) the driver for the wifi card says it is for linux kernel 2.6.22 so do you think that could be the issue?

I don't know really what to do when it comes to linux, I am very smart and good with computers so I can do whatever you want me to, just I don't know what to do....

Thanks!
