Hey guys! I have a rtl8192u device from Realtek that is a wireless usb adapter. I plug it in and it doesn't work. So I tried looking around the net for drivers for that device for Ubuntu, but I didn't seem to find any. So I looked for a solution on Debian and I found a page on the Debian Wiki that contains the instructions and the driver:
Unfortunately, I'm not experienced enough with Ubuntu or Debian to follow the instructions correctly (I tried these instructions on a Debian install and a Ubuntu install). My questions are:
Is it possible to make the Debian packages/drivers for my device work in Ubuntu? And if yes, how can I do it? (If you know the answer, please explain in detail the procedure, I am a noob ) If no, does anyone that has that device or similar knows an alternative method to get it working?
Funny how things are: I stayed away from Ubuntu because my intel video kept crashing ever since 9.04 and I could not fix it and it still crashed on 10.04! On 10.10 it stopped crashing, I was so happy to be able to use Ubuntu again, then I realized I couldn't make internet work in it haha. I hope I find a solution, I really don't wanna go back to Windows .
Thanks a lot for your time!
