I am having trouble understanding how to install Asus wifi driver. Here are the instructions.

I have gotten the first 3 parts done correctly I believe. Part 4 confuses me. I open the os/linux/config.mk file and I found where is states HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT. But the formatting is different. It looks like this:


Can someone show me what I should have on those lines? Also what directory should I be in when I enter make and make install?

It's an Asus USB-N53. I got the instructions from the readme file on the provided disk. –  xmjsilverx May 5 '14 at 0:59
Also, I"m not sure who edited my post but they left part of my comment/question attached to the build instructions in the paste bin. –  xmjsilverx May 5 '14 at 1:02
