    rtl8723 cannot modprobe (invalid argument)

    hi


    i made a apt-get dist-upgrade, got a new kernel and since that my wireless doesn't work anymore and is not detected in iwconfig.
    I followed another topic (Helmut from Germany on ubuntu forum who said to uninstall linux backport which i did, i recompiled after that but still aint working).

    Ubuntu 12.04 Kernel 3.2.0-52
    Driver rtl_92ce_92se_92de_8723ae_linux_mac80211_0006.0514 .2012 found on askubuntu

    Code:
    # iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    # sudo su
