[SOLVED] RTL8192CU can't compile (Mint15/Cinnamon/64-bit)

Postby Hadrien on Fri May 31, 2013 7:02 pm

WiFi USB Adapter: ASUS N13-B1 (RTL8192CU chipset)
System: Linux Mint 15 "Olivia", Cinnamon, 64-bit

As suggested in another solved thread, I downloaded the latest Realtek RTL8192CU driver from Realtek RTL8192CU download page.

But I can't compile the driver.

I did :
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.8.0-19-generic

with no trouble...

Then, from the driver folder, I did :
Code: Select all
chmod +x install.sh
sudo ./install.sh


and it outputs :
Code: Select all

Re: RTL8192CU can't compile driver (Mint15/Cinnamon/64-bit)

Postby Hadrien on Sun Jun 02, 2013 11:26 am

Problem Solved

Here's what I did :

1. Command :
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

and added theses lines at the end of the file :
Code: Select all
blacklist rtl8192cu
blacklist rtl8192c_common
blacklist rtlwifi


2. I installed rtl8192cu-tjp-dkms_1.6_all.deb (from this thread)

3. Command :
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/modules

and added this line at the end of the file :
Code: Select all
8192cu


4. Rebooted the computer and plugged the USB adapter in.

Thanks, this works for me.
However, I have a feeling it is still not running on maximum..
I used to see it's connection speed as 300mbit, but now it is no more than 144mbit..
Speedtests also show I am getting about half of what I usually had..
Working fine alltogether but not at max capacity... Yet.
Regards,

I followed these identical posts and I am having a kernel panic on Mint 15. I am a bit lost on what to do. It kernel panics immediately when I enable wireless.
Error:
"BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request"

I am trying to use an RTL8192CU usb wireless adapter Asus USB-N13.

This may be due to the version of linux I am running 3.8.0-19.

8192cu decidedly crashes the current version of the kernel.

Works fine for me with kernel 3.8.0-25 (Mint 15)

I'm using the Edimax USB wireless N adapter EW-7811Un (uses same RTL8192CU chipset). I'm posting this post via the adapter :)

Many thanks to the OP for posting his solution - I couldn't get the Realtek supplied driver to compile.

Add another plaudit from me.

These instructions worked for me (mint 13 mate)/Edimax USB wireless N adapter.

Wish I had found them sooner.

Immense Gratitude to Hadrien.
