    Same for me, this helps to recognize device but I'm still not able to connect.

    The procedure described by b k works for me, until I restart the computer. After the restart, the procedure must be followed again to set up the TEW-648 wireless adapter.

    I'd upgrade to the latest LTS but I am using LinuxCNC which is not supported on 12.04 yet.

    Any ideas? I'd be really grateful.

    Kind regards,

    So I decided to compile the Realtek's driver for Linux from their site:
    Just downloaded archive, followed instructions that is in there and everything works perfectly. Hope that will help someone else out there.
    Ubuntu ROCKS
    I have the Realtek 8191. Working with an Acer x1430 desktop PC. I have downloaded said files. However, I cannot find the instructions, there are a lot of folders and not much in the way of workable code. Anyone able to help?
    I have tried the synaptic package manager route but no luck there.
