    Hi,

    does LAN work? Install the driver via
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git build-essential
    git clone git://github.com/ulli-kroll/rtl8188fu
    cd rtl8188fu
    make
    sudo make installfw
    sudo modprobe cfg80211
    sudo insmod rtl8188fu.ko
    sudo make install
    https://github.com/ulli-kroll/rtl8188fu

    You saved my life praseodym, my network now works and i got appreciation from my boss who's been working on this issue since days, and then I came and did this magic!! BOOM ISSUE SOLVED ,
    But there is an issue when we restart the system, the problem still exist...and we have to do the steps all again from the beginning

    \please provide me with a solution at the earliest

    Force the driver being loaded on boot up
    Code:
    echo rtl8188fu | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    Reboot. On the fly you can do
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v rtl8188fu

    Or they could do

    cd rtl8188fu
    sudo make install
    Not sure why that detail was omitted from the instructions on the github readme
