    There's a bug report about this issue. From what I gather looking over the information there, your card might start working if you simply type:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe rtl8192cu
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    If that doesn't bring up your device, though, or if the card doesn't work well after, please try the solution from post #13 of the bug report, which involves installing the driver from Realtek's website. If you need more step-by-step instructions on how to download and install the driver, let me know.
    Hi pytheas22,
    I have done everything above, still cannot connect via wireless, I do have internet connection via the ethernet. Can you please help.

    MickM: sorry that didn't help. Please post the output of the following commands so I'll know more about your situation:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -ie real -e wlan -e rtl
    modinfo rtl8192cu
    lshw -C Network
    sudo iwlist scan
    ifconfig
    iwconfig
    Unfortunately I'm going to be traveling starting tomorrow and may not be able to respond to you as quickly as I'd like, but I'll do my best.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    MickM: hmmm, it looks like the version of the driver you were using was just bad. Did you try compiling the driver using the code from Realtek's website, according to the instructions in post #13 of this bug report? Were you able to compile the driver and load it? From what I'm reading that seems to be the solution, as the version of the driver that ships with Ubuntu 11.10 is not stable.

    Hi Pytheas22,
    Yes I did that and downloaded the driver /home/carolm/Downloads/RTL8188CU_linux_v3.1.2590.20110922.zip
    I extracted it :- /home/carolm/Downloads/RTL8192CU_8188CUS_8188CE-VAU_linux_v3.1.2590.20110922
    tried $ sudo sh install.sh result was :

    carolm@carolm-OptiPlex-GX620:~$ sudo sh install.sh
    [sudo] password for carolm:
    sh: Can't open install.sh
    carolm@carolm-OptiPlex-GX620:~$
    So this is where I have been stuck.

    Thanks
    Mick M

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    MickM: I got the driver from Realtek's site to compile by downloading the file, cd'ing into the directory and doing:
    Code:
    chmod +x install.sh
    sudo ./install.sh
    It then built and installed the driver. In the process it removed the old version of the driver.

    I did this only my Ubuntu 11.04 netbook, which is the only machine I have available at the moment while I'm traveling, but hopefully the process would work the same on Ubuntu 11.10. I'd give it a try.

    pytheas22,
    Please excuse my ignorance, what do you mean by "cd'ing into the directory" and how do I do that?
    I have downloaded the driver it's in the Download folder. Also I can wait till you get back home and you are more comfortable.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    MickM: no worries; I should have been lighter on the geek talk. By "cd'ing" I meant using the "cd" command to change into the directory where the driver files are located. If the zip file is in your Downloads directory, then you would type "cd ~/Downloads" to cd into that directory. Then unzip the file with "unzip RTL8192CU_linux_v3.1.2590.20119022.zip" (or whatever the filename is) and run the installer script.

    Hi pytheas22,
    This is what I did and the result. What am I doing wrong or have I missed something? Sorry for taking up so much of your time.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Good morning - I presume that this is the right place. I've dual booted Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot onto my XP SP3 and have come to the undeniable conclusion that I'm looking at an impossible task. I've been attempting to load the WLAN adapter that uses a Realtek RTL 8188CUS onto this Linux v3.0.0.12 generic kernel and it's so impossible that it has already defeated a pro from the Geek Squad. Ndiswrapper sees the existing driver for XP as an Invalid driver. Imagine that!! Worked immediately on Windows but gets spit out on Ubuntu. Tried loading the newest Linux 3.0 - 3.1 Linux driver as a module with make/make install and crashed my Dell OptiPlex GX 260! I'm an Electronics Tech and this should be an Automatic with a stable Operating System. Unfortunately, I'm so challenged by this that I can't quit in any way/shape or form. Is there a Realtek RTL 81922SU module built into this Oneiric Ocelot? And, if there is, how come it doesn't enable itself like Windows products would do? I'm very disappointed with Linux to the point of calling it a day alltogether. What to do? Keep trying to find a Windows driver that ndiswrapper will accept? I see roughly 25 networks and have connected to an open,unencrypted one but the Internet door is Padlocked in the extreme. I've never(ever) seen anything quite like this. Maybe one of you gentlemen have a secret key that will open the door and allow me to experiment with Ubuntu before I become violent. I have the patience of God but I must be in Hell with this issue. Maybe one of your Administrators can get me into Purgatory. Thanx and, by all means, have a very nice day from Philadelphia PA .
