    Help with install dlink dwa-171 usb nic

    Hello.

    First off all, sorry for my bad english.

    I try to install my nic into my kali linux 64

    I downloaded the rtl8812 driver by

    code

    git clone https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl88...21AU_linux.git
    cd rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux
    make clean
    make

    when i run make i got following errors

    make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.14-kali1-amd64/build M=/root/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/3.14-kali1-amd64/build: Filen eller katalogen finns inte. Stannar.
    make: *** [modules] Fel 2

    (swedish language: Filen eller katalogen finns inte. Stannar. = The file or directory does not exist. Stops.) (fel 2 = errors 2)

    i look into the directory 3.14-kali1-amd64 and there was no build subdirectory in it so i created it by my self, then i got this error when run make.

    make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.14-kali1-amd64/build M=/root/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/3.14-kali1-amd64/build'
    make[1]: *** Ingen regel för att skapa målet "modules". Stannar.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/3.14-kali1-amd64/build'
    make: *** [modules] Fel 2

    (Ingen regel för att skapa målet "modules". Stannar. = No rule to create target "modules". Stops.)

    I try to modifie the makefile and remove the "build" in this path /lib/modules/3.14-kali1-amd64/build , still same error

    so wich is the right path to use in the makefile?

    very gratefull for any help

    I solved the problem by myself

    code

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade
    uname -r
    apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

    then run the others command again.

    make
    make install
    modprobe 8812au

    now up and runing.

    thanks anyway for all help.
