    Found this thread on the net. It says 11.10, but it was linked to from another thread saying it worked in 12.04 (and should therefore work with 12.10):

    This is a known problem across all Linux distros. Bug report.

    You'll need to blacklist the original module, and then install the driver downloaded from Realtek.com.

    1. Blacklisting.

    Run gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf, and add the following to the bottom:
    Code:
    blacklist rtl8192cu
    Reboot, and make sure that no rtl81** modules are loaded with lsmod | grep 81

    2. Installing.

    Place the downloaded file in your home folder, and run

    Code:
    unzip RTL8192xC_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105.zip #extracting
    
    sudo bash ./RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105/install.sh
    3. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask.

    That's what the thread I posted shows how to do as well.
