The linux divers for this USB Wireless card are are conviniently located here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=229&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true

But I have no idea how to install them. Extracting the file results in an 'install.sh' file, and then going into the /drivers folder inside the extracted folder. There is another archive with a makefile inside. But using changing directory (cd) to the folder and running make and make install result in this error:

root@kali:/driver# make
make ARCH=i386 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.7-trunk-686-pae/build M=/driver modules
make: *** /lib/modules/3.7-trunk-686-pae/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2

root@kali:/driver# make install
install -p -m 644 8712u.ko /lib/modules/3.7-trunk-686-pae/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
install: cannot stat `8712u.ko': No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1

I don't have any other card I can use and this one isn't plug and play :/
So far this is all really confusing and I've been googling around for hours.

So could someone please tell me how to install the files located in the archive so I can get my wireless usb identified?

Thanks so much...
