    Unhappy Realtek RTL8188CE wireless driver

    Hello
    I've just purchased a Toshiba Satellite L670D laptop and installed Ubuntu 10.10. Everything works fine excepting the most important thing, the wireless internet connection.
    I've ran the test which said "Unclaimed" and then I followed the procedure to install a Windows driver. The installation program says the driver is installed but the test still shows "unclaimed".
    I am really stuck, any ideas please?

    I also obtained the driver for Ubuntu but the "readme" file suggests that it takes such skills to install that I do not have.

    Thanks for your help

    Lightbulb Re: Realtek RTL8188CE wireless driver

    After some trial following instructions on this post this is what worked for me:

    1) Go to Rhttp://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...true#RTL8188CE and download the tar.gz file

    2) open terminal and do 'sudo apt-get install build-essential'

    3) Follow the readme file's instructions:

    • sudo su
    • make
    • make install
    • reboot

    When I logged in again I was on WiFi....

    Re: Realtek RTL8188CE wireless driver

    I'm trying over and over but something obviously doesn't work or I do something wrong. It seams that Ubuntu responds and there is activity after each command.
    Going through the terminal I noticed some arrors that were displayed:

    Error1:
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.32-25-generic/build M= CC=gcc modules
    make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-25-generic'
    CHK include/linux/version.h
    CHK include/linux/utsrelease.h
    SYMLINK include/asm -> include/asm-x86
    make[3]: *** No rule to make target `kernel/bounds.c', needed by `kernel/bounds.s'. Stop.
    make[2]: *** [prepare0] Error 2

    Error2:
    /driver/HAL/rtl8192/../../rtllib/rtllib_rx.c:1128: warning: the frame size of 1040 bytes is larger than 1024 bytes


    Any ideas please?

    Re: Realtek RTL8188CE wireless driver

    It built perfectly for me just now; not even the slightest warning. I see that you have kernel-headers installed. Do you have build-essential installed? If not, install it and do:
    Code:
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install

    It was quite a struggle to get "build-essential" installed without an Internet connection, but I have succeeded by copying .deb packages from one computer to another on a USB key. Such that now "apt-get install build-essential" now reports that the most recent version is installed.

    However, I still get the same "sudo make install" error as before.

    New pointers, anyone?
