View Full Version : [ubuntu] Getting wlan0 interface to work

October 10th, 2011, 06:34 PM
Hi there,

I just tried to install ndiswrapper drivers (I followed the steps in a ndiswrapper howto and the extended troubleshooting guide here in the forum) and now my wlan0 interface disappeared completely. I removed ndiswrapper completely but after typing "lshw -C Network" my network controller is still unclaimed.

So, the controller itself is RTL8188CE. I already found it's drivers at the realtek page and - as I already said - I uninstalled ndiswrapper.
I have to say, that my WiFi works before installing ndiswrapper but it resetted every 2 minutes or so - so I tried ndiswrapper.

Ok, question is, how can I get back my wlan0 interface?


Edit: I'm using an Ubuntu 11.04 on a Lenovo Edge 11" AMD.

Ok, problem solved.

I just had to do this:
"sudo modprobe rtl8192ce"

But thanks anyway. :)
