How do you install the Realtek RTL8187 WLAN Driver when the Ubuntu machine has no internet connection? I've looked this up but all of the tutorials I've found usually had an apt-get install command in them so they will not work for me.

Download the package from another machine that has an internet connection. Also, download any possible dependencies. You can download the packages directly using a web-browser from and then you can install them manually using

dpkg -i package.deb

That should do.
