Reason: Changed title back to original title "WiFi problem: tp-link TL-WN8200ND", rendering one's own thread useless after some time, giving some confusing pseudo reasons for doing so is bad style

Hello Cybernetic,

maybe the problem is, that you have two wireless driver loaded: rtl8192cu and rtl8xxxu

You could try blacklisting the rtl8xxxu in the terminal:

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist rtl8xxxu" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8xxxu.conf
Then reboot and see what happens.

(If it doesn't work, you can undo the blacklisting by deleting the rtl8xxxu.conf file in the file manager nemo: go to the folder /etc/modprobe.d/ and right-click on it > open as administrator and delete it)

The blacklisting doesn't work with the live system. You can try to unload the modul with:

Code: Select all

sudo rmmod rtl8xxxu
See, if it changes the behaviour. If not, load it again with:

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe rtl8xxxu
Then you could try the same with the other module rtl8192cu:

Code: Select all

sudo rmmod rtl8192cu
See, if it changes the behaviour. If not, load it again with:

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe rtl8192cu

You can try to install 8192cu driver with following commands.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kelebek333/kablosuz
sudo apt update
sudo apt install rtl8192cu-dkms 
After reboot your PC. You must disable secureboot from BIOS/EFI settings.

Hello Cybernetic,

I think, that is a good decision, because your USB adapter is known to be difficult with linux. Here is a website with recommendations, maybe it helps you:
