    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation Help Needed

    After some searching online I think I found the issue in a customer review.
    So do you want to replace the device or would you like to try to compile? I downloaded it and it makes without drama for me. I don't have the device, so I can't vouch that it actually performs as expected.

    If it were me, I'd replace.

    I too have had this card for a very long time and to no avail have I ever got this card to work properly under ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10. I had it recognized and the ability to connect to the wireless network but it disconnects and fails miserably. Also very slow speeds compared to in Windows.

    Is this a comment that the card is not very good in Ubuntu or a request for assistance? If the latter, please post:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep rtl
    lsmod | grep rtl

    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation Help Needed

    Hi

    I have a PCE-N15 card and have followed the instructions below to install drivers, but I simply don't get it to wok properly, I loose connection after 5sec or so.

    I tried to remove the card and put back my old SWEEX LW052, but it is simply not recognized at all anymore.

    So, my request is help to remove the PCE-N15 drivers to allow my old card to work (if I remember correctly it was working automatically when I installed Ubuntu)

    This is my fist post in this forum so I hope I post in the right place...
    Thankful for support

    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation Help Needed

    Let's start by blacklisting the Asus driver:
    Code:
    gksuso gedit /etc/modules
    If rtl8192ce is in there, remove it, proofread, save and close gedit. Next:
    Code:
    gksuso gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add a line at the end:
    Code:
    blacklist rtl8192ce
    Now, with the SWEEX inserted, reboot and show us:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280
    iwconfig
    Thanks.

    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation Help Needed

    Thanks
    I guess you ment gksudo, that seemed to work anyway.
    I removed the Asus card and put in my sweex

    Now, however I have no network, so I cannot really paste.

    lspci -nn | grep 0280 iwconfig
    Returns no data

    iwconfig
    lo & eth0 no wireless extensions

    Is the conclusion that the card is broken?

    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation Help Needed

    lspci -nn | grep 0280 iwconfig
    Returns no data
    That's two separate commands:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280
    And then, separately:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    If the lspci returns no data, then we assume the SWEEX is inoperative; it is a PCI device, correct?

    If it is inoperative, let's try to troubleshoot the Asus. I emphasize 'try.'

    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation Help Needed

    Yes, it is a pci device.
    Well, then the sweex is dead

    I stop blacklisting the Asus device and put it back.

    The issue is that it starts fine but stops working after a few sec. It still show a network connection icon, but it is false.
    However, by disconnecting and connecting again I can get network again, for a few more sec at least....

    Any suggestions?

    Re: ASUS PCE-N15 Installation Help Needed

    Let's see if there are any clues here:

    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e rtl -e cfg8
