    [SOLVED] Problem with rtl8191seVA

    Hi everyone,
    I have a rtl8191seva wireless card on my laptop.
    It worked out of the box with ubuntu 11.04, but the connection dropped often.
    Reading variuos forums, I tried (with no success) to install the realtek driver and ndiswrapper. With each the card did not work at all.
    Now I removed both and I have no wireless support. The card does not even turn on using the switch on the keyboard.

    Can anybody please help me?

    Thank you,
    Ignazio

    Re: Problem with rtl8191seVA

    Hi,

    this card normally works with the native driver. Can you show:

    Code:
    modinfo r8192se_pci | egrep 'versi|filen'
    locate r8192se_pci | grep lib
    dmesg | egrep 'ndis|r8|rtl8|switch|radio'
    What kind of laptop is that?

    Re: Problem with rtl8191seVA

    Hi, I have been doing a lot of searching to find the driver you need from realtek, here is the link.

    It is the second driver in the list.
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/DOWNLOADS/...&GetDown=false

    Here is a link for installing your driver it is a little different then the one listed here but the procedure for install should be the same.

    If you need more help just ask.
    Thank you

    It's a hp 620. The card worked (badly), before I installed the driver from Realtek and removed it for not working at all.

    The result of the commands is:

    Thank you very much, but the problem started installing exactly this driver; so I wanted to go back to the default one.

    Hi, at the moment you do not have any driver installed except ndiswrapper we need to remove it first.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get autoremove ndiswrapper
    The driver from realtek could not work as long as ndiswrapper or another driver was installed at the same time.

    I already removed ndiswrapper, besides the realtek driver.
    In fact:

    Code:
    neclepsio@neclepsio-HP-620:~$ sudo apt-get autoremove ndiswrapper
    [sudo] password for neclepsio:

    Re: Problem with rtl8191seVA

    You have to uninstall ndiswrapper incl. all config-files:


    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rf ndiswrapper
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 ndisgtk
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper.conf
    sudo rm -r /etc/ndiswrapper/* 
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo modprobe -v r8192se_pci
    sudo service network-manager restart
