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.
cd /home/cat/Desktop/r8168-8.027.00



Here are the recent results from the terminal:

at@ztcat:~$ cd Desktop
cat@ztcat:~/Desktop$
cat@ztcat:~/Desktop$ ls
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
r8168-8.027.00

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.

Here is some helpful documentation for configuring Ndiswrapper in Ubuntu:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...er/Ndiswrapper

(but see below... it is not clear to me that ndiswrapper is the actual solution!)

Snowpine:
Thank you and ....I agree that ndiswrapper is or is not the actual solution. But if all of my attempts to install this driver ( r8168-8.027.00)and maybe the driver for my usb adapter fail I might just take the members advice and do exactly what he told me to do and that is:

" go to site and download the driver, put in a folder on your hard drive, boot my Ubuntu/UE 2.7 and go to file manager and search on xp partition and the driver I just downloaded, than extract it and load it with Ndiswrapper" Pretty sure this is just to get my Ubuntu:UE 2.7 online as I haven't been able to get Ubuntu online for 6weeks now.
