    Question RTL8192 - is there a solution to this non-working wifi?

    Hi,
    I posted a year ago about my non-working wifi on my Samsung R620 (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1646978). There have been lots of similar questions since but I can't see a solution - unless I missed it.

    Did I miss it?

    For reference, here's some more info about my laptop:

    Hi,

    try this PPA for Samsung note/netbooks.

    https://launchpad.net/~voria/+archive/ppa

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voria/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install samsung-wireless samsung-tools
    and reboot. The Realtek driver rtl8192e is not further developed. Alternatively try the windows driver with ndiswrapper
