    if you have issues with the download link please pm me or msg me at www.shocktothesystem.ca

    I have now tested installing 10.04 x86_x64 my results (RESULT'S UBUNTU 10.04 x86_x64 SUCCESS)

    10.04 x86 you just need to get the firmware from the git repository and reboot

    if you do not have git you type
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git-core
    cd /tmp
    git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/gregkh/firmware.git
    sudo cp -av firmware/RTL8192E /lib/firmware/
    *RESTART WILL WORK*  ONLY x86

    Well, it doesn't work for me.

    I am able to connect to my wifi network, but after about 5 minutes I lose my connection (but nm-applet shows I'm still connected). When I want to connect again, everything freeze, I am not able to move my mouse or use my keyboard and a capslock key flashes. I have to make a hard reboot.

    I'm curious -- I have tried a lot of solutions posted here on this forum. Is there any possibility that my kernel module I'm loading is an old one, not compiled with your solution?
    (before the compilation and after I have the same module available: r8192se_pci).

    Anyway, could you give me a realtek email address? Maybe they will know what's going on...

    That worked a treat for me thanks! I've got a Samsung N510 with the Realtek 8192 chipset. I downloaded the driver mentioned above and followed the installation steps 1-5 above, up to the reboot. Once rebooted the wireless worked straight away, I didn't need to bother with the rest of the steps.
    So far it has connected every time and has never lost or dropped a connection.
    Thanks for this info. This has been the easiest and most successful solution to fixing this problem that I've come across - and I've tried a few.
    Cheers,
    Matt.

    Just thought I'd mention that I had to repeat this process after a kernel update as it had stopped working. I've kept a local copy of the drivers and instructions so I can get it up and running again without the need for a network connection. Just something to bear in mind...

    Re: RTL8192E x86_x64

    Hey, I still can't seem to get it running reliably in 64 bit. Tried 32 bit and all was working fine, just wondering whether there is any fix for the 64 bit version yet?

    just email them via the forum on there contact us page under technical support. it'll take a couple days for a response also make sure your wireless card is infact rtl8192e not rtl8192se there's a HUGE difference D:

    your correct there is no stability in x64 Ubuntu nor in windows 7x64 it's something to do with realtek they make crappy x64 drivers a guess.. altho under windows my rtl8192su works like a charm and never fails me in speeds of 1.5MBps

    hey, im trying to get some help with installing this. I'm running ubuntu studio 10.04 64-bit. i downloaded that file for the drivers you have there and extracted it in my home folder. then i went in in through terminal and typed "./configure" and it came back with "bash: ./configure: No such file or directory". then i read the readme and didnt know which folder to go into for the source file(s) so i started with the first out of the 3 source file(s) areas. i cd to that folder and did "./configure" and got the exact same response. then i went to the other 2 folders and still got the same response from terminal. if you could help thatd be awesome. thanks.

    Re: RTL8192E x86_x64

    It does not work with Lucid on my Samsung NB30. The device is recognized, but I cannot get it to turn on the RF (switching the RF on and off works with ndiswrapper + XPdriver).

    Dmesg shows this:

    [ 1049.393354] ======>rtllib_softmac_scan_wq():rf state is eRfOff, return
    [ 1049.394400] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

    And every attempt to turn the RF on via the WiFi key or even the script that came with the Realtek driver only confirms that it is off:

    [ 582.150754] ================>r8192_wx_set_scan(): hwradio off

    Re: RTL8192E x86_x64

    I've followed the instructions at the top of this thread. Thanks to s32ialx for them.

    My problem now is that the only way I can enable wireless is by manually cd'ing to the driver directory and then typing sudo ./wlan0up

    Is there a way to make wireless work automatically on boot?
