    Default installing linux driver for my wireless card

    i have a rtl8192e wireless card,
    and i just found the linux driver and downloaded it.
    rtl8192e_linux_2.6.0011.1029.2009

    so i tryied to install it by doing this

    root@bt:~/rtl8192e_linux_2.6.0011.1029.2009# make
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30.9'

    WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30.9/Module.symvers
    is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.

    Building modules, stage 2.
    MODPOST 1 modules
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30.9'

    as you can see, a warning comes up.
    is it just me who doesn't have the module.symvers file in that directory?
    i tried copying the module.symvers file from the linux driver folder,
    then the warning dissapeared, but it did not work at all.
    I am not even sure about how to install this driver.
    all i did was typing
    make, then
    make install, then
    reboot.
    but wlan0 did not apear in ifconfig or iwconfig.
    help~

    I' not THAT expert, but have you tried typing "ifconfig -a" and search for the wlan0 in that list?
    If it appears there, you can try to bring the device up by typing "ifconfig wlan0 up".
    I think you already did this, but... if not, then I would try it

    i'm having the same problem. although i can see my wireless card, i cannot do much else other than get it to scan for networks! its getting pretty frustrating, but im gonna do a search and see if i can find the missing file, if thats what it is!
