    Good news! Your device is covered. Let's load the driver and see if there are interesting messages:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rtl8192cu
    dmesg | grep -i rtl
    Would it be murder if I took an Axe and chopped my pc up in small pieces?

    sudo modprobe rtl8192cu returns nothing after asking for sudoers password which I give, Then dmasg | grep -i rtl gives a long string of text ending with[99.442794] [dcaf77787]-rtl-rx-completed+oc1f0[rtlwifi]

    I like the sound of endevoring to persevere. sounds like chief Dan George.

    dmasg | grep -i rtl
    Please check your work. It's actually:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i rtl
    I hoped to see the entire text as it hopefully contains some clues as to what's going wrong. If you are having trouble getting it from your Ubuntu machine to the computer from which you are posting, make the output into a text document:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i rtl > harlie.txt
    Find the file harlie.txt in your user directory and transfer it on a USB key or similar.

    Thumbs down Re: Asus wireless usb adapter driver installation

    Here is the output of dmesg | grep -i rtl.

    harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$ dmesg | grep -i rtl
    harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$ dmesg | grep -i rtl
    harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$ dmesg | grep -i rtl
    harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$


    Funny that it worked before and not now. Anyway it is posted to your last message as an edit.

    This version (12.04) has never acted right since the upgrade.

    It generally helps! So now do you have a wireless interface?
    Code:
    iwconfig
    My patience with the built-in rtl8192cu is rapidly waning. Unless we get a hopeful result quickly, I am about to suggest radical steps...

    I am working on another rtl8192cu case here that's just as dismal.

    NO still no interface will try iwconfig and stick the result here.harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$ iwconfig

    Isn't wlan1 your USB? Does it scan?
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan1 scan
    rfkill list all
