Almost got wireless working, but not quite

You would load a module with insmod and the name of the module. Run

lsusb

Also, read this, nl80211 - Linux Wireless in its entirety. Make sure to click on the links in the article and read all that as well. It’s a bit of reading.

You might need this driver; rtl8187 or this p54usb
You can see the details here; USB - Linux Wireless

‘sudo /sbin/modprobe’ is a much better way to load a module. It searches the
various paths to find the module, whereas insmod needs to be told everything.

Ignore the advice about needing rtl8187 or p54usb. If you had either of those
devices, your wireless would have been up and running weeks ago. If you have $15
to spend, check out http://tinyurl.com/7d5933q. That device will work as soon as
you plug it in. The driver has been available in Linux for at least 4 years, it
does not require external firmware, and no messing around with ndiswrapper.
