I recently purchased this wireless card for my desktop and am having trouble getting it to work on Linux. Is this card supported on the latest kernel version? I have installed the drivers but still does not seem to be working. Would someone be able to tell me if I went wrong in a step?

I downloaded the drivers from here ran the commands manually per the README but still no luck, below are the steps I took on my machine.
