After several months of research finally my wifi driver is being detected and working fine ;) That's good news with credits where i found solution is here

Now, i still have one issue that every time I have to follow instructions to set modprobe done ( as per the instructions given in link).

Can someone help me out on how to make it done automatically when system starts? i have ubuntu 12.04, Linux kernerl 3.2

You'd add it to the end of /etc/modules. Here's a command that will handle that for you. Stick it in a terminal.

echo rt2800pci | sudo tee -a /etc/modules

sorry for my stupidity in asking this question. do i have to copy any of files to /etc/modules or just add above line to /etc/modules/ – PC. Aug 14 '13 at 9:43
If you have the module available (which you should do if you followed that tutorial), you just need to run that. /etc/modules is a file not a directory anyway. You may find you need to rebuild the module when kernel updates land though. – Oli Aug 14 '13 at 9:45
Thank you @Oli. Let me try. – PC. Aug 14 '13 at 9:46
And don't be so hard on yourself. These aren't stupid questions. It's not an obvious topic. – Oli Aug 14 '13 at 9:52
