The adapter is h/w revision C, and here's a direct link to the driver archive: DWA-130 REV-C Linux drivers

You might notice an Ubuntu logo on this post...it just means I've gotten a temporary connection - I'll probably lose it again next time I reboot the machine. I got it by setting the mode to "DHCP (addresses only)". I guess DHCP isn't a complete bust after all, although I highly doubt that it's a permanent solution.

Ok... it seems to work for you, so it must not be the source that's broken... I do have a theory, though: I noticed that you've un-tarred the file to the /usr/src directory. Maybe that's where I should put mine? That could be what the problem is; maybe it's just confused because it's not in the right directory. I've had similar problems before. I'll try it next time I lose internet and really can't get it back (I usually give it about 5 or 10 attempts before saying it's never gonna connect).

Yes, I'm posting from Ubuntu again... This time I set it back to manual, unplugged the adapter, and plugged it back in. Like I said, this is really inconsistent, so I'm hoping I can maybe get those Ralink drivers working so that I can use the D-Link instead. I've tested it under Windows, too, and it seems to do just fine there.

EDIT: Another idea would be to get a DWA-140. It's listed under the (Ubuntu) HCL as working "out-of-the-box".

Well, I tried compiling and installing the drivers again, and I got this at the "make install" step:

Code:
mrcode@linuxbox:/usr/src/rtl8192u_linux_2.6.0006.1031.2008$ sudo make install

It turns out the other one I posted was wrong because I was compiling the wrong thing (oops!). All I know at this point is that some source file called "bounds.c" must be either missing or in a folder other than the one it needs to be in. If that's the case, could you maybe point me towards where it needs to be?

And yes I have to use sudo otherwise it'll fail on me. I suppose another way could be to "sudo -i" to login as root and try it again...would that make any difference? I can't just "su" because I apparently don't have the root password. I've tried my user password, but apparently they're not one in the same.

Hmmm . . . just to be sure, try this sequence of commands in the base source directory:
Code:
$ sudo su -
Password:
# make uninstall
# make clean
# make
# make install
I'll never understand the whole Ubuntu sudoers setup . . . supposedly more secure, but then by default any user can become root with their OWN password with that 'sudo su -' . . . oh, well.

It's kinda like double-clicking 'Programs' in the Start Menu on Windows. Can't be disabled (easily) and gives any user access to everything on the drive. LOL.

Okay, I tried running those commands as root, and the drivers compiled and (supposedly) installed successfully this time (yay!), but when I try to do an insmod, it gives me this:

Code:
 insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/RTL8192U/r8192_usb.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module
Does that mean the compile didn't go well? What did I do wrong? I ran them in the same sequence as you wrote them.

Well, if it built and installed, it went well.

What about after reboot? When you reboot and connect the stick, it should auto-load the module and start working.

Oh...surprised I didn't think of that myself. Well, I'm gonna call it a night here soon anyway, so I'll try the D-Link tomorrow.

Ok, I tried booting w/ the D-Link adapter in the USB port where the NetGear one was, and it seems to work! The only problem is that my internet access is still delayed...and after a little while of my gaining access, the whole system freezes! No mouse movement, no keyboard response, nothing. I have to press and hold the power button on the tower to reboot the machine. Could this be a major glitch in the drivers? (Maybe that's what all the warnings were about during the build process regarding unused return variables.) And I'm guessing that since internet access is still sketchy, then that problem's not on my end... I'll try setting it to WPA or WPA2 security, but not the combined one (it's a NetGear router, too, in case anyone was curious). In the meantime, I guess I'll just have to deal with using the NetGear adapter with ndiswrapper and hoping for a net connection...

Well, I've found that the problem seems to be on the router's end. I tried resetting the router (w/o changing any settings), and that seemed to make it work. Is this the only way I can make it work? I already mentioned that I can use the D-Link adapter, but it consistently freezes my system (maybe that's what the error was talking about when it mentioned an "unknown symbol"; something was going to majorly interfere with system operations).
