Hi, thanks for your help. But when I try last step, sudo modprobe 8188eu, i get the following message: 'modprobe: ERROR: could not insert '8188eu': Device or resource busy'. How to solve it? Thank you

This is just a copy-paste gist for the code that can be found at askubuntu.com, check the link.
it complains that I don't have linux-headers-3.10.107-190
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.10.107-190 or
Searching can be done this way:
apt-cache search linux-headers

Yes, it worked! Even in several computers, no problems at all. You just need to plug it out and stick it in again when you get this error: 'modprobe: ERROR: could not insert '8188eu', repeating the command 'sudo modprobe 8188eu'. Perfect. Thank you so much

If you get 'modprobe: ERROR: could not insert '8188eu', you can get the current driver module name by typing
sudo lshw -C network (source: https://askubuntu.com/a/333430) then removing it with
sudo modprobe -r currentDriverName (source: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/246881) and finally
sudo modprobe 8188eu

Thanks a lot man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It works on me.
After completing all of commands I just restarted my PC.
Hi, thanks for your instruction and I have a question about how to match the kernel version.
I am running 16.04, with an older kernel (my $(uname -r) returns "3.10.107-190").
So when I run step #8, it complains that I don't have linux-headers-3.10.107-190.
Could you please tell me how do I solve this problem?
