    Chipset RTL8192CU: http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/p...n=4&ProdID=277
    OS Ubuntu 13.04 all updates installed
    On another notebook with Win7 It works fine
    It notebook already has internal WiFi, I bought this adapter to connect to another Wireless networks with low level signal

    Ours device: Device 004: ID 2357:0100

    Re: Ubuntu 13.04 + WiFi-adapter USB TP-LINK TL-WN8200ND (RTL8192CU). How to connect?

    I struggled all day to get mine working, and in the end NDISwrapper worked for me in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Linux kernel 3.2.0, with i686 (32 bit) architecture

    I don't know if this will help you with Linux 13.04, but it seems possible, and I want to write down my steps because there seem to be many of us struggling to use this adapter with linux.

    NOTE: I do not fully understand (or remember) exactly what I did. I will appreciate any corrections.

    The steps that worked for me:

    1) Build and install ndiswrapper 1.58 (Version 1.57 from Synaptic did not work for me.)
    ii) Use the terminal extract and then move the resulting folder to /usr/src:
    Code:
    cd Downloads
    tar -zxvf ndiswrapper-1.58.tar.gz
    sudo mv ndiswrapper-1.58 /usr/src 
    cd /usr/src/ndiswrapper
    iii) Build and install.
    Code:
    make
    make install
    2) Install the ndiswrapper gui using the Software Center:
    "Windows Wireless Drivers" (Ndiswrapper driver installation tool)
    3) Install the windows XP driver using the gui.
    i) Open "Windows Wireless Drivers"
    ii) Click "Install New Driver
    iii) I used the installation CD that came with the WN8200ND:
    CD166A2/TL-WN8200ND/Driver Files/Windows XP 32bit/netrtwlanu.inf
    iv) The window now says "Hardware present:Yes"

    4) After rebooting the USB adapter is working.

    I also have an integrated wireless adapter which I turned off by blacklisting its driver.

    1) Find the driver: The following command in the terminal shows the USB adapter with driver "ndiswrapper+netrtwlanu" and the integrated card with driver "b43".
    Code:
      sudo lshw -c network
    2) blacklist the integrated driver
    i) Open the blacklist
    Code:
     sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    ii) Add a line at the end (for me the driver name is b43):
    blacklist b43
    3) reboot


    Final notes: Even with the ndiswrapper, lsusb does not identify the USB adapter by name. A patch for this appears to be in the pipe, and it looks like full support is on the way eventually.

    SOLUTION for 3.8 Kernel!

    I had been fighting with this issue for days and found a patched version of Realtek's drivers wrapped up in a DEB for 3.8 & 3.9 kernels.

    https://code.google.com/p/realtek-81...9-ubuntu-1304/

    Please "sticky" this, or share this link on other topic-related forum threads so everyone dealing with this issue can find this patched driver!
