    Asus USB-N13 Wireless Network Adapter Problem

    hello!

    I have a slight problem with my Asus USB-N13 Wireless Network Adapter.
    I plug it in to a USB port and Ubuntu recognizes it and connects to my networks in just a matter of seconds with no problem and everything is working just fine.
    But after about 5 minutes the connection stops working.
    However, the Ubuntu network manager does not realize that the connection is lost but if you for example try to refresh a web-browser page it tries for several minutes before failing.
    I can disconnect from the Network but then i can't reconnect again, and the only way to fix it is to remove the adapter from the USB port and reconnect it, and then it all works fine for about 5 more minutes.

    Is this a known issue with certain USB adapters or similar?
    Could it be that the N-13 is USB2.0 enabled but the computer only have standard USB?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Hi, copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back and attach the netinfo.txt file.
    Thanks

    Re: Asus USB-N13 Wireless Network Adapter Problem

    This adapter seems to use the Realtek 8192CU chipset.

    You can verify this with the adapter plugged in by typing this in a terminal:

    Code:
    lsmod | grep rtl8192cu
    If you get a few lines back as a result, then your adapter definitely uses this chipset.

    The standard remedy is to download and install Realtek's driver.

    First, go to this site (maybe use another working computer to download to a flash drive if your connection is flaky) and follow my answer here in answer #2:

    Re: Asus USB-N13 Wireless Network Adapter Problem

    Yeah I'm pretty sure its the rtl8192cu chipset, i dont have access to that machine right now tho, but i will try to install the Realtek drivers tomorrow.
    For some reason it never crossed my mind to that the standard Ubuntu rtl8192cu drivers could be the problem.
    Will let you know if it works tomorrow after trying, otherwise I will download and run the script that Wild Man suggested and post the results here.
    Cheers!

    Yes, I have a couple of USB wireless dongles based on the 8192CU and even though the 12.04 kernel driver recognizes the dongle and sort of connects to a wireless network, it's not reliable and doesn't always connect. Installing the Realtek driver fixes everything.

    Re: Asus USB-N13 Wireless Network Adapter Problem

    Hi I am also using the asus usb-n13 and I am having the exact same problem using a fresh install of 12.10. It didn't seem to be a problem until I updated my software after the install. Any way I went to the other thread and tried the latest install. I downloaded the file from here. I received a similar/ the same error as dwb814 in that thread. Specifically,

    That indicates you don't have the necessary build tools installed. Please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
    Then try again.

    Re: Asus USB-N13 Wireless Network Adapter Problem

    Thank you very much Chili that solved my installation problem and everything looks to be going well so far, although it was only been a few minutes since I rebooted. Thank you ahallubuntu for the initial instructions.

    I just have a couple more questions. I was having a good session of internet before I did this(my internet did not stop for several hours) so I was wondering if there is anything I can do to make sure my card is running like it is meant to do? And in the other thread, ahallubuntu says that it might be required to rebuild "this" each time the kernel is updated. I am not sure what "this" is. Is it the driver and the blacklisting?

    Thank you very much for your help again. Chili and ahallubuntu you have been God sent to us all.

    If it's running well, you are doing everything you need to do.
    it might be required to rebuild "this" each time the kernel is updated. I am not sure what "this" is.
    You built this for your currently running kernel only:
    make ARCH=x86_64 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.5.0-19-generic/build M=/home/zak/Downloads
    When Update Manager installs a later kernel version, also known as linux-image, 3.5.0-20, for example, you need to build a driver for it, too. Simply do:
    Code:
    cd Downloads/RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    exit
    You should be all set. Please retain your file in Downloads and these instructions.

    Thank you for your very kind comments. It's fun to do what I do especially when there are appreciative clients like you! Have fun!
