I recently installed Peppermint Ice on an old Toshiba satellite laptop to see if I could improve its performance. While it does seem to run a little faster than it did with XP, it does not work with the the Zyxel G-102 v.3 wireless pcmcia card that I have on this computer.

Looking around online I found that the madwifi driver should support this card. Unfortunately, I could not install the driver because I did not have /lib/modules/2.6.32-23-generic/build. So, ran sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.32-23-generic. I now have that build file, however, I am told to specify the kernelpath. I am unsure what this means and have so far been able to find anything helpful online about this.

Can anyone tell me how I can compile and install this driver? Or is there some other way to fix this?

Actually the big problem here would be that pcmciautils are not installed by default on any Peppermint. They will need to be installed first, before anything else.

Code:
apt install pcmciautils
