In addition to what onebuck said, when you get

Quote:
It's giving the same error '<module-name> not found'
This means that the module can't be found anywhere in '/lib/modules/`uname -r`' folder (`uname -r` is the kernel version you're using).

Actually, we need a Copy'n'Paste of your terminal tries. Just post here what you're trying on a terminal window.

What is the <module name>? You are not answering with complete information. You could give us a screen shot by using PasteBin. You should provide the requested information so we can aid with diagnosis.

I have given the command 'modprobe <module-name>'. even tried gvng '/sbin/modprobe <module-name>'.But it always throws an error '<module> not found.
I also tried with few options, but nothing worked out .

Thanks.

That's your problem! As a example from the cli you would issue: modprobe b43
Where b43 is the module name for a Broadcom device. You enter the module name that you wish to implement with the modprobe command not the example <module name> which is just a label example.

What is the driver name you wish to use for the equipment/device? To use it you would do: ~#modprobe driver #where drive is the <module name> in the example just replace driver with the module name.
