These instructions assume you are running the latest Ubuntu version and kernel 3.13.0-x; check:

uname -r

If it does not return 3.13.0-something, stop and tell us what it is. I'll amend the method accordingly.

Be certain the build tools are installed:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall build-essential linux-headers-generic

Download this file to your desktop: https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8192du/archive/kernel-version.zip Right-click it and select 'Extract Here.' Now back to the terminal; you may safely copy and paste these commands:

cd ~/Desktop/rtl8192du-kernel-version
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 8192du

Your wireless should be working. You will have compiled the driver for your current kernel only. When Update Manager installs a later kernel, also known as linux-image, after the requested reboot, recompile:

cd ~/Desktop/rtl8192du-kernel-version
make clean
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe 8192du
