    Re: Asus wireless usb adapter driver installation

    Commands on two lines are two separate commands. Like this:
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan1 scan
    Note the result and copy it into your reply; then:
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    Note the result and copy it into your reply. Sorry if I wasn't clear.

    My mistake also.

    harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$ sudo iwlist wlan1 scan
    [sudo] password for harlie:
    wlan1 No scan results

    harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$ rfkill list all
    0: phy0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: no

    Re: Asus wireless usb adapter driver installation

    I've just about concluded that the built-in rtl8192cu is not going to work in my lifetime. We can try two things. The first is:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-cw-3.3-precise-generic <--or -pae if you are running a PAE kernel
    Find out about PAE:
    Code:
    uname -r
    If -pae is mentoned, include it and not if not.

    Reboot and tell us how it's working. If it's not, Plan 2!

    Not working but when I click on the wireless icon I now have some new networks shown that were not previously there.

    Time for me to quit for tonight, will return to the grind stone tomorrow afternoon.

    Ok I am ready for plan 2 (briskly rubbing hands together).

    Re: Asus wireless usb adapter driver installation

    First we need to blacklist rtl8192cu:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist rtl8192cu" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    modprobe -r rtl8192cu
    exit
    Then proceed as here in posts #13 and following: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ghlight=8192cu

    As always, post back if you get stuck.

    Re: Asus wireless usb adapter driver installation

    This is not working for me here is what happens.

    harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$ cd Desktop/RTL81
    bash: cd: Desktop/RTL81: No such file or directory
    harlie@harlie-DQ175A-ABA-A420N:~$

    Earlier (a few minutes ago) I got it to change directories, then when I did the command

    sudo su then password then
    ./install.sh it says permission denied

    Now I am lost again.
