You'll want to forget about compiling this driver. It is an old driver and it has been added to the kernel you are using. It looks like the problem might not have anything to do with the card driver at all. I found an Ubuntu thread where some people were having the same problem as you but with a Broadcom and I think an Intel card.
I cant guarantee that this will work but you can try it:
sudo rmmod -f rtl8191se
sudo rfkill unblock all
sudo modprobe rtl8191se
Then go to the /etc/modprobe.d directory and create a file called rtl8191se with an editor and put the following in it and save:
alias wlan0 rtl8191se
options rtl8191se disable_hw_scan=1
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
One other thing you might want to check on. Go into your BIOS cmos setup and see if there is an option concerning your RF killswitch. If there is, it should toggle between hardware control and software control. Set it to hardware control. That will make it work through the BIOS. The other setting I believe requires software installed to make the killswitch work.
