    I haven't downloaded 13.10 yet, but that firmware should have been part of the default installation. So it being missing makes me suspicious of a broken installation.

    If the rest of the system is working fine, try installing the default firmware package (while connected to internet via cable or modem etc.) -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware
    If you don't have a working internet connection available, I have attached the firmware file from my installation (12.04.1). Download it to your desktop, then extract to your /lib/firmware/rtlwifi directory -
    Code:
    sudo mkdir -p /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
    sudo unzip Desktop/rtl8192sefw.bin.zip -d /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
    The first command will create the "rtlwifi" directory if it does not already exist, won't do anything if it does already exist. The second one will extract the included firmware file to the directory.

    After this, do -
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rv rtl8192se
    sudo modprobe -v rtl8192se
    ..or simply reboot.
