You can try the dongle in a windows os. You can try a different dongle from a friend in the usb port. You do not say how long ago the sources you looked up are from. Things 3, 4, 5, 6 years ago should be strenuously avoided. You do not say how you installed sparky, it would have needed to pull binaries down. DId you install via ethernet?As always posting output of "inxi -b" is quite helpful. Mark up as code via the # button. If it is an Edimax or Hawking, it should be supported by now.

I used to get much better connectivity using a Belkin gaming adapter - wifi box connecting to ethernet port. Browser interface to Belkin and it connected to Wifi easy peasy. Not sure if they are stil around but worked fine.Other than that look for a pci or pcie card - depending on hardware. Preferably atheros or intel - stuff that works. Even broadcom is better than Realtek.Edimax as said are not too bad.Best thing to check is after you've inserted the card open a terminal and do 'sudo dmesg'You should see some stuff about connection to a USB port. If there's nothing there try different ports. If still nothing the adapter is probably bad.
Quotethe sources I tried to build were included on a cd that came with the dongle
