Found this thread on the net. It says 11.10, but it was linked to from another thread saying it worked in 12.04 (and should therefore work with 12.10):

This is a known problem across all Linux distros. Bug report (https://bugs.launchpad.net/linux/+bug/852190).

You'll need to blacklist the original module, and then install the driver downloaded from Realtek.com (http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=48&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#2742).

1. Blacklisting.

Run gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, and add the following to the bottom:

blacklist rtl8192cu
Reboot, and make sure that no rtl81** modules are loaded with lsmod | grep 81

2. Installing.

Place the downloaded file in your home folder, and run



unzip RTL8192xC_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105.zip #extracting

sudo bash ./RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105/install.sh


3. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

That's what the thread I posted shows how to do as well.
