I want to achieve this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1530962

At the very end it says:
7. Now we'll add the module so it will load at startup, again using a terminal:
sudo gedit /etc/modules

8. At the end of the file, add the following:
... and close the window.

But when I go to /etc there's only the modules.conf file and no modules file. Is it the same? If not, where should I add that last line? Because without it the wifi drivers won't work on my laptop. I'm running Precise 5.4 by the way.

Hello Martificiam,

did you successfully compile the module? If you run the network wizard, there is a button called Load module where you can select the compiled module, & test that it works OK, then it should be there when you reboot.

(If it's not showing in the network wizard's list, run depmod -a, in a console, then try the wizard again)

If still doesn't work, you can add modprobe fsaa1655g to the file /etc/rc.d/rc.local, then reboot.

Hello, thanks for your answer. Anyway, I have already accomplished this simple task - I've found an item in the menus, which allowed me to load kernel modules at boot (somewhere in the system menu, as far as I remember).
