    Question Realtek RTL8192CU Driver issues under 13.04

    Ok I am not sure what I am missing but I can not get this damn thing to work.

    I have so far blacklisted the default driver and downloaded the newest: RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105
    driver

    I tried to compile it using sudo bash ./install.sh

    and it returns an error message:

    Code:

    ##################################################
    I have been reading all night trying to fix this.
    I tried to install sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.32-21-generic as per on post but it couldnt find the install. So I thought I needed to install the headers for the version I have. When I try that it says they are already installed and upto date,
    So then I installed sudo apt-get install build-essential which it seems to have installed that.
    Ran the install.sh again but same error.

    Next I tried to download a 8192cu.ko and tried to load the driver directly, seems that didnt work either.
    Lastly I tried to install firmware-realtek_0.38_all.deb but it gave me an error also.

    At this point I am pretty annoyed. I am new to Linux and trying very hard not to give up.

    I am running Ubuntu 13.04 64Bit

    Any help would be amazing because like I said I would like to make Linux my home but as it stands now it doesnt look too good.
    Please help.
    Thank you.

    EDIT: Wanted to mention the reason I am not using the default driver is because the wireless will work for just a few minutes then it stops. It doesnt show that I dropped off my network but I just time out on ever page, even 192.168.1.1.I Also tested using phone as Wifi Hotspot and also works at first but then starts to time out. I did notice on the "Attached Devices" page on router internals that once the connection starts to time out my wireless stops showing up. However on the linux side it still says I should be connected to my network. Not sure if that info helps but I really hope someone can assist me. Thanks again.

    Re: Realtek RTL8192CU Driver issues under 13.04

    This is a common problem that I also cannot find a successful solution for. Someone has suggested it actually has to do with Linux support for draft-N wireless, but I don't know. At any rate I would suggest you google for 'ubuntu rtl8192C' or some such. Read carefully because some of the suggestions have unwanted side affects, for example losing sound. I tried several things to no avail - yet. I'm sure it will be solved in the not too distant future, but that doesn't help us now. My eventual solution was to use a different piece of hardware that used a different chipset. I had a Belkin F5D7050 which is only G, but that is good enough for the moment and I believe is fairly inexpensive. Luckily this doesn't happen too often. Most hardware is well supported in Linux. If youdo find something that works, PLEASE post it on here so others can use it. There have been many similar threads.

    Re: Realtek RTL8192CU Driver issues under 13.04

    I actually have googled several different search strings trying to find help. I have also tried to get it to work on Linux Mint 14 but on Mint it loops the WPA2 authorization. It seems that it is an ongoing issue for years now. If no official fix yet then I don't see one coming soon. So I guess one thing is why wont this compile? Is there a work around so it will? Compiling is new to me so not sure what else I could do. Is it the 3.8 Kernel? Thank you again.

    Re: Realtek RTL8192CU Driver issues under 13.04

    I couldn't get it t compile either, reason unknown. It could be that it is written for a different kernel than we are each using so the headers are different, or the kerel headers are not installed (mine are, are yours?). I believe the driver may be written for a 2.x kernel, I'm not sure and haven't had time to follow up or contact RealTek. However, if that is the case perhaps they need to update it. Have you tried contacting them directly?

    Re: Realtek RTL8192CU Driver issues under 13.04

    The RealTek site mentions Kernel 2.6 and 3.0~
    I am still new to linux so I am not sure if running 3.8.0.21 makes it incompatible.

    I have not tried to contact RealTek, I dont see them writing updated drivers per one persons email.

    It does seem though, least according to the dates of a lot of the posts it has been an issue for least a few years.

    Re: Realtek RTL8192CU Driver issues under 13.04

    I had the same problem trying to compile the driver but I used the fix posted here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2092934

    pretty simple, the only problem is my speeds are awfully slow.

    Hope this helps.

    I just plugged it in, tried to connect to my WiFi router, and it worked.

    I've had the same experience with this device:

    ID 0bda:8178 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8192CU 802.11n WLAN Adapter
    I did notice one interesting trait though. I have two routers, the second configured as an access point. I tried the RTL8192CU on two different machines, a home-built AMD desktop & R61 thinkpad. The desktop seemed to work fine, the thinkpad was an absolute pain. It'd connect then lose internet access. Ping would return "host not found" but the machine was connected to the router. Drove me up the wall. I finally changed the second router from access point/repeater mode to router mode. Now the RTL8192CU device seems quite reliable. Why did it work reliably on the desktop in access point mode but not on the Thinkpad? I have no clue but that's how it appears, could have something to do with the 2nd router. This is using the driver included with 13.10.

    I could not get the driver from Realtek to work on any release since 12.10. I had luck with this driver in 13.04.

    https://code.google.com/p/realtek-81...9-ubuntu-1304/

    This was with a 8188CUs device but I think the driver is the same for 8192CU & 8188CUs. This above driver does not work with 13.10.
