View Full Version : [ubuntu] in trouble with 8187l

Hi everyone!

I've just bought a 8187l and I can't figured out how can I make it work properly.

When I first plugged the usb to the laptop I could see the networks that I had around but the signal intensity of them was not shown. (I had them like if the signal was 0% to all of them). I tried to fix this following this tutorial that I've found on the internet:


after doing all the suggested stuff the situation now is worse. the antenna is detected by the computer but it finds no networks at all, whereas my internal antenna, an intel pro wirelles 5100 AGN shows me at least 3 of them.

I know that I've modified the kernel and after doing all this I've been reading some stuff and I'm pretty sure that I may have downgraded it, what can I do to have the 8187l working?

Thanks for reading and for any further assistance!
