Try a fresh download like Samurai_Penquin suggested.
Also if that zip file comes with a md5sum; check the integrity of that file.

new download = old download

I don't see anything called md5sum.

Maybe there's a step missing or something changed since the instructions were posted.

Good, does the new download have a file called:
Code:
 aes-x86_64.ko ?
-::-If you want I'll look for a md5sum if there is one. Just post the link to where you downloaded that zip and I'll download it.-::-

BTW - I also have an Edimax wifi dongle that doesn't work with Linux. Linux sees it but can't connect.

A Google search reveals that many people are having trouble getting linux to work with wifi and it seems that very few of those cases actually get resolved. It seems silly to have to install a wifi card when the motherboard comes with one but....what do you think of these guys? They claim to sell wifi cards that will work with Linux. https://www.thinkpenguin.com/catalog...rking-gnulinux

Most WiFi dongles need a linux driver installed in order to work.
That is provided that there is a driver available.

I'm not familiar with Penguin Wireless devices; sorry.

This particular Penguin USB works with a handful of distributions. At least it says that it does.
There is a 90 day warranty so if it doesn't work you could return the device for a refund.

Okay, I went through the whole process and the kernel compiled and is bootable.

Thanks Ztcoracat.

1) I'll order the Penguin USB.

2) sudo modprobe rtl8192cu from the Edimax instructions got the dongle to work for about 5 minutes. Then I could no longer access the network and Firefox locked up (requiring a force quit). Tried it twice, same result. I haven't yet tried getting the newest driver and probably won't since I don't have permanent use of that dongle. I'll go with the one ordered above (assuming I can't get the built-in to work).

Samurai Peguin - I'll try the steps again from the top. Maybe I mistyped something. It may also be possible that I'm not doing something that isn't listed but that a non-novice would know to do, such as change directory or ????
