How I got my obscure Realtek USB wireless adapter to work

The device is " 0bda:f179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. 802.11n," per lsusb. Using this driver:

Not the deb files, the dkms path. (Speaking of path, I have the impression it has explicitly coded paths and needs to be installed from /usr/src)

Including the added settings regarding USB plugging and power management issues, AND the advice on this forum:

One of the most common complaints on LQ Forums and other Linux forums is about wifi cards or adapters not being recognised in Linux.

Here are some typical lamented cries:

But it works perfectly in Windows. Why doesn’t it work in Linux?

How do I get my Ralink, Atheros, Broadcom, Realtek, Edimax etc wifi card working in Ubuntu/Mint/Debian etc?

Can anybody recommend a wifi card that works "out-of-the-box in Linux”?

Ad-hoc wifi networking?????

Posted 10-21-2012 at 10:36 AM by davetesc

Each time I think I'm getting somewhere I try to do something new and realise how little I know!!!
Having found a cheap usb wifi dongle I thought it would be easy to connect my two laptops so I could just send files between the two without using a memory stick, guess again, obviously I'm missing the simplest of steps but plodding on. :-)
