Realtek rtl8187se 64 bit driver needed
I am trying to help a person to get their wireless working on an Alienware M17. I have the same laptop but with the intel 5300 wireless. I have mine working but can't seem to find a 64 bit driver for the rtl8187se for them.
First question they have is can a 32 bit driver be made to work in a 64 bit Ubuntu platform? (They have AMD 64 processor and loaded the 64 bit Ubuntu.)
I have found for them a 32 bit driver. Is there a program that can convert it to 64 bit?
I think it would be easier to just reload the Ubuntu 32 bit version and load the 32 bit driver but I wanted to check and see if you guys have any recommendations.
Thanks for your helpAlienware M17
