Please, has anyone installed the above driver for a usb wifi adapter.
Nothing seems to work for me. The cd with the adapter seems useless.
Two days I have been trying to get the driver installed on my LMDE but go luck.
I am not a computer wizard and can just about put in command lines. I like the LMDE system which I have used for some time.

Let's start by giving us some information. Plug in the USB wifi adapter, then please copy and paste the result of this command from Terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz
Pasting the results in between [code][/code] tags is helpful for reading it easily.

Yes...well, rtl8192cu (which might be the same thing)... it worked but was often troublesome, especially with new kernels, and needed a custom driver install.

I ended up buy a different adapter (Panda Wireless PAU06, about $14) which works with all the new/new-ish kernels and might glitch once in 100 boot-ups (just restart NetworkManager.service). That $14 saved me way more than $14 worth of my time.

They usually are. I'm not even sure why they supply them....

Check here for installing the rlt8192eu linux driver:

Thanks very much. I have decided to abandon the rtl8192. I will go for an adapter which is proven to work on Debian

Best wishes

Thanks Jerry. I have decided that these adapters which don't work first time are best for the garbage bin. I have wasted too much time solving adapter installation.
