I'm a noob at this and i was just wondering when you say
Run ./Configure
do you mean double click the file configure in the folder where you extracted the wlan driver tar ball thing to, or do you go into a terminal and go to the directory and type ./configure? because i've tryed both and when i double click the configure file it asks me to either display, run, help, or run in terminal and iv'e tryed both run ways and nothing has happaned and i also tryed doing it in the terminal and it couldn't it said file or directory doesn't exist i typed in
exec /home/llamatank/wlan-patch/configure
adn that didn't work i've even navigated to the directory in the terminal and typed
exec ./configure
exec configure
and no questions have ever come up. i know i'm doing someting wrong and its probably something very noobish can someone help me out please.

when you

it should work. Make sure there is file named configure there. Also check if it executable

ls -l configure
and you should get something like

i.e look for the presense of x

if you don't see anything, then

chmod a+x configure
