You may want to roll back to 10.10 if your using the 8192 chip. No love for this on the upgrade. I suggest as others have to contact Realtek for the solution but in the mean time 10.10 is probably best for this model adapter. Have you tried to get the Broadcom chip working instead ?

that is what i was thinking i have been doing so looking and Debian has a driver working but it is in the unstable tree. Realtek has drivers for up to 2.6.35 kernel. I have emailed Realtek and am awaiting an answer i was just hoping that someone may know something i have not found.
