I'm new to linux environment and I'm using both latest Ubuntu and Lubuntu on my systems. I learned pretty much cmd lines but not every function they have. For example I can modify grub files using nano modifier >sudo nano... So here's the thing. I have this USB WiFi Adapter TPLink WN727N which has a RT5370 chipset. I'm trying to install it and have found some good help at the link below. But I cant figure out what it means exactly. So if anyone can help translate it for amateur people like me! :) I specifically want to use Ralink Driver method and don't understand the line 4 of it. "4. now just make, make install, and register your module with modprobe" So how should I perform modprobe and to which directory address?
ifconfig from Lubuntu 14.04
