I do not think you will be able to install this driver by guessing and typing random commands, you need to follow the correct series of steps exactly.
Here are the recent results from the terminal:
at@ztcat:~$ cd Desktop
Cricket Flip Etc + Ubuntu Update Files r8168-8.027.00.tar.bz2
Files From Toshiba Ext Rt73 Driver Adap
Ndis Driver RT73_GUI_Installer_0.5.2.zip
cat@ztcat:~$ $ cd /home/cat/Desktop/r8168-8.027.00
$: command not found
cat@ztcat:~$ cd /home/cat/Desktop/r8168-8.027.00
Cricket was my ISP in 2010; currently my provider is Cavalier.
The Ndiswapper driver is in a folder on my desktop along with the driver (RT73) for my USB Adapter
The r8168-8.027.00 folder is unpacked...the other r8168-...bz2 on my desktop is still zipped and unpacked.
I am trying to install the driver for this NIC Network Interface Card because it is still kicking me off of my internet connection.
