    rtl8188 & 13.04 problems

    i keep running into this so i'm thinking that my 13.04 is too new for this driver

    jamesq9@James-set9:~$ sudo su
    [sudo] password for jamesq9:
    root@James-set9:/home/jamesq9# cd Desktop/rtl8188C_8192C_8192D_usb_linux_v3.3.2_3192.2012010 3
    root@James-set9:/home/jamesq9/Desktop/rtl8188C_8192C_8192D_usb_linux_v3.3.2_3192.2012010 3# make install
    install -p -m 644 8192cu.ko /lib/modules/3.8.0-25-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
    install: cannot stat ‘8192cu.ko’: No such file or directory

    I'm thinking you are quite correct. Mind if we check which device you have?

    Please see the post above yours. Any reason you prefer the 8188cu to the rtl8187 device?

    And the built-in to 13.04 rtl8192cu does what? Connect? Not connect? Connect and disconnect? Or...?

    mostly because of the integrity or the signal. it goes fast...then slow, then kinda fast, then slow, then blazing fast, then almost nothing.
