Is anyone having this problem with Ubuntu 32 bits? (I'm using 64 bits).
    Exactly the same on Asus 1201N! (64 and 32 bits)

    Hello all,

    Same problem here, Asus 1201n too.

    Drops connection every minute or so.

    Would love help with this.

    Re: Realtek RTL8191SE

    I seem to have found a solution to my problem, so thought I would share.

    Having looked at the files installed by driver, it had copied the firmware to the /lib/firmware/2.6.31-17-generic/RTL8192SE folder.

    Normally I put firmware files directly into /lib/firmware

    So I copied both files into this folder and rebooted, all seems to be fine now.

    Hope this helps someone else.

    When you say both files which to files are you talking about? When I list the files in /lib/firmware/2.6.31-17-generic/rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0013.1204.2009 I have 18 things listed.

    Looking forward to the reply as am finding this frustrating.
    Am running Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit on a Toshiba L450-01M.

    The files that C1tlr340 is talking about are the ones located in the ../rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0013.1204.2009/firmware/RTL8192se directory. (they are called rtl8192sfw.bin and rtl8192sfw492.bin. I tried this solution myself and it does not really help anything. Connection still drops every few minutes and I occasionally get asked for my WPA key. I'll keep fiddling around and keep you posted in case of success.

    Sorry for the false alarm, mine is back to dropping connection.

    The BIOS on my 1201n always needs reconfigured on reboot too.

    I'm having to use windows just now, as I am finding the problem very annoying.

    I am using the latest bios version from Asus, 318.

    Now not sure if problem is driver or bios related.

    Re: Realtek RTL8191SE

    I normally use a Broadcom card, copy over the firmware and am up and running in about 5 min.

    I am considering buying a half size pci-e card and installing it, requires opening it up though.

    Re: Realtek RTL8191SE

    Here is what I used to get a stable wireless driver running on the 1201n. Many thanks to David Woo of on launchpad for posting all of the information here that I needed to get it working. And thanks to the Phoronix review of the 1201n that had the above link.

    I've installed the 64-bit version of Ubuntu 9.10, but there are instructions within the bug report for getting it working on the 32-bit version as well.

    32-bit Driver:
    http://launchpadlibrarian.net/339279...12.2009.tar.gz

    64-bit Driver:
    http://launchpadlibrarian.net/340903...9_64bit.tar.gz

    Prerequisites:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essentials
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
    [1] Extract the driver using 'tar zxvf <filename>'
    [2] CD into the folder and run make
    [3] Then run 'make install'
    [4] If make install succeeds, reboot and it should be working

    If the make install fails (as it did for me) you can manually install the driver using these steps:

    [1] Copy the target module in HAL/rtl8192/rt8192se_pci.ko to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
    [2] Copy rtl8192se firmware folder to /lib/firmware/`uname -r`
    [3] Run the command of `depmod -a`
    [4] Run the command of 'modprobe rtl8192se_pci', or reboot.
    [5] Check the NetworkManager, and see whether there's network list show out?

    Best of luck!

    Duncan

    But I'm using my wireless every day with this version. It's pretty stable unless you have to switch hotspots. That may lead to a system hang. But that hang even happens on Windows 7.
    hey man i need tht could i pm you my email so u could send it?

    Re: Realtek RTL8191SE

    I bought Msi Wind Top AE2220M yesterday. Installed Ubuntu 9.10 x64, but can't get the wifi working :/ Spent hours trying to make it work.


    I see my network, but it just won't connect at all. I also tried to change WEP/WPA encryption, didn't help either. This just makes me want to get rid of Ubuntu. Any ideas?
