hi guys, i'm having some kind of problem,and i have been trying to find solution everywhere almost :\ i cant seem to be able to patch that driver, tried weird things and it just doesn't work. i'm quite familiar with terminal, but when it comes to drivers and complying them i have two left hands.
the weird thing if i want to patch it with rtl8187_2.6.27.patch it works. but anything with 2.6.26 seems lacking rtl8187_dev.c .
i'm open to suggestions.
Thanks in advance.

Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

|The current wireless statistics for the RTL8187 poorly indicate the signal
|strength and quality. With testing, I found that the AGC value is inversely
|correlated with the strength as in the RTL8187B. By implementing a similar
|calculation, much more code becomes common to the two devices.
