    Can you boot in failsafe mode and do:
    Code:
    rm -rf /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    Then reboot normally?

    Can you boot the Live CD and delete all the /etc/ndiswrapper/whatever files from the installed partition and then reboot normally?

    Hook up the ethernet and let's compile the latest from Realtek. Please open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndiswrapper*
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
    Now grap the file here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...Downloads=true

    Download it to your desktop and right-click it and select Extract Here. Now back to the terminal:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/RTL81
    Press the Tab key and the remiander will fill in automatically. Press Enter.
    Code:
    sudo su
    chmod +x install.sh
    ./install.sh
    modprobe -r rtl8192cu
    modprobe 8192cu
    exit
    If it works correctly, we'll need to amend the blacklist file.

    After these steps the device does work excellent! I hope that we can mark the thread as solved now! Thank you for you help and if it's alright I'd love to repost your solution on my web-space is there a website you have or anywhere I can link to in-order to give credit?

    When an updated kernel or linux-image, as it's known in Ubuntu, is installed by Update Manager, you'll probably need to re-compile as above.

    Please use thread tools at the top to mark Solved.
