Are you sure you really need to compile that driver? I have a netbook with an atheros wireless NIC and I've used different Linux distro's on it, including Ubuntu, and none of them had any problems using that adapter out of the box.

You need a router with integrated DSL Modem connected to the DSL line, and then either connect to that router with your ethernet NIC or if the router also includes  wireless then you can use your wireless NIC to connect to that router, and you have internet.

I'm trying to help you, and I don't think you need to compile anything to get on the internet, but for that I need the info I asked for. So how are you trying to connect to the internet?

It sounds as though you need to configure the PPPoE information for the
what happens when you run gcc by itself on the command line?
does it tell you that you need to install it (Compiler not found.Stop ***)?

Can you connect via a wired connection and download the packages.

Download the packages using your windows 7 bootup and presumably you can access the windows 7 drive or have a USB jump drive from which you can then install the items on the kubuntu system.
using the apt- other binary that will let you install using downloaded packages

Do you have the CDROM from which you installed kubuntu?
apt-cdrom install linux-headers-$(uname -r)


adept is the graphical package manager

You need the kernel headers to build a module/driver

Check the version of your gcc (gcc -v)
The error seems to be that your version is not what the driver is looking for.
