I have just installed the latest version, 0.3.1 Freya 32 bit, but cannot get my usb wireless adaptor to work. It is a U-Link 802.llN adaptor and the supplied drivers are RTL8192EU.

Any ideas?

  • I have the output in a file, how do I add that to the post? – Muzzargh Nov 26 '15 at 8:53
  • please edit post and add output of sudo lshw -C network – Ravan Nov 26 '15 at 9:01
  • Do you think an upgrade to the latest version will fix this? – Muzzargh Dec 13 '15 at 8:37
  • no need to add SOLVED to title. You can accept after 48 hrs :) – Ravan Jan 12 '16 at 11:11

So, after hours of googling I ended up here: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/reserve-7#TOC-Realtek-RTL8188EU-chipset-0bda:8179- There was a section 6 which provided a link to an updated? driver and some instructions that worked perfectly. I now have wireless Yay. :-)
