    Hey pooper,

    Did you get this working with Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit or 32-bit?
    I can't get this to work with 64-bit.

    Nevermind that. I successfully install this on Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit using MooPi method.
    Thanks!!

    I couldn't get it working on 10.10 64 bit then I tried 11.04 and couldn't get it to work on that either both 32 and 64 bit versions so I just got 10.04 32 bit and worked straight away after installing linux drivers from edimax website. Didnt try 10.04. 64bit as i'd already spent so long trying to get the thing running! Glad to hear it does work though.

    I heard a very reliable rumor that MooPi knows how to get this working on 11.04 32-bit.

    Don't ya, MooPi??

    To be honest I find 10.04 better anyway, I found 11.04 to be quite glitchy and not sure about the new menu.

    Yes I have completed the install using the Realtek drivers for RTL8192CU driver.
    http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...true#RTL8192CU

    Included with the driver is an install script. Navigate to the unzipped driver folder just open a terminal and issue this command
    Code:
    sudo sh install.sh
    To my amazement it worked immediately.

    I would like to add that this chip is working with other manufactures as well. I have tested this device from Rosewill and Edimax with same results. Earlier tests were obviously from a flawed driver from Realtek not working on the current kernel.

    This worked for me after fidgeting with the driver from edimax for a couple of hours I downloaded the one from RealTek, ran the install script and voila. If you have the Edimax usb gadget don't bother with their drive on 11.04, just go to RealTek and save yourself the pain. Works like a champ and was a one command install of the driver. Thanks for the hints on here!

    i'm new here. i used the moopi method and it worked.

    i made the mistake of renaming the folder and it didn't work. so dont rename anything.

    here is what i did.

    download from moopi's link (realtek)
    dragged from downloads and dumped it on the desktop.
    right click the icon and extract here.

    opened a terminal.

    cd Desktop/RTL8192CU_8188CUS_8188CE-VAU_linux_v3.0.2164.20110715

    sudo sh install.sh

    enter password

    bingo, thank you moopi.

    yeah I think we've established they've made a fix to the driver.

    Hi. Just used the MooPi method above on 64-bit 11.04 on a Macbook Pro 8.1 (as the built in bcm4331 isn't supported yet) and it worked first time. Nice and fast and cute too with the flashing blue light. Thx. Allan.
