    Does it start working if you just reload the driver?
    Code:
    sudo modprobe 8192du
    Is there any error with modprobe?

    It says the Module 8192du is not found.

    I suspect there was an updated kernel version. When this happens, you will need to re-compile for the newer kernel, also known as linux-image:
    Code:
    cd rtl8192du
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe 8192du
    Is it working now?
