Please include newest RTL8188EE wireless driver

Post by grryo » Sun Jul 06, 2014 8:57 am

Default wireless driver for RTL8188EE card that comes with Mint 17 is quite bad(packets dropping, slow speed), so after much trouble I managed to compile and install this one https://github.com/FreedomBen/rtl8188ce-linux-driver and now wireless works fine. I would really appreciate if this driver could be default in the next realease of Mint.

There seem to be a lot of people having problems with wireless drivers that work intermittently or not at all, so it would be a good thing to include a better variety of up to date drivers, at least for common hardware. I'm glad you were able to fix your problem.
