I recently bought a D2Plug. For our application, we cannot use the in-built wifi card, so I bought a wifi USB card. I am having trouble installing the drivers for the wireless card.

When I attempt to install the drivers, I am getting an error:

/lib/modules/2.6.32.9-dove-5.4.2/build: No such file or directory: stop

It is missing the linux-headers that is required to do the install. And, I am unable to get the required packages with Standard update.

Can anyone suggest a solution or recommend a wifi card that will work with D2Plug?

Sorry, I don't have your usb wifi card on hand , so I can't give a try

but could I know why you can't used build-in wifi modules

BTW base on your error message , under the "/lib/modules/<kernel version>/build" is kernel source

so I think you are not install fail ,it should be build module fail when it try to find kernel,

I think you could do this by below two way

1.copy kernel source to below message mention folder and re-build it
2.build it at host(x86) device , used cross_compiler( you could find it at http://www.plugcomputer.org/downloads/d2plug/index.html) and
   modify your usb module make file , to let it to find your d2plug kernel source at host PC, than re-build it

I am looking to set wifi card to monitor mode for business function. I cannot change the mode of built-in wifi.

Please, Can you provide a step-wise instruction to rebuild the kernel that you mentioned below?

not need to rebuild kernel

you need to rebuild your usb wifi module source

due to this source need some header form kernel , so when you rebuild your usb wifi modules need to point out which kernel source loacte

this is why I suggest you build it at host PC ,

due to need to modify your usb wifi modules Make file and this is for business used, I think you could ask your wifi module vendor help
