View Full Version : [kubuntu] Asus USB N-13 stops working after upgrade to 13.10

My Asus USB N-13 wireless stick was working fine with the alternate driver on Raring. (The alternate rtl8192cu driver was the one from the deb for 3.8 and 3.9 kernels from here (https://code.google.com/p/realtek-8188cus-wireless-drivers-3444749-ubuntu-1304/).)

The built-in drivers with the 3.11 kernel in Saucy seems to choke on the WPA security (it fails to configure an IP address after a long delay). I've tried the deb and also the basic installation of the official Realtek drivers, following the basic instructions and also Chilli555's from this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2167956&p=12758603#post12758603), but to no avail.

Is there something basic I'm missing?

Basically have fixed this by stepping back to my old 3.8 kernel. Not exactly solving the issue, but a few days of searching has left me fairly sure that the built-in drivers just don't work with WPA2 and the Realtek driver doesn't work with the stock 3.11 kernel at present.

One to keep an eye on for a while I suppose.
