I just bought a USB WLAN Adapter that is recognised as such under Fedora 10:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:8192 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Is there any chance of getting your driver to work with this device? If so, can anyone offer a bit of advice?
Thanks a lot,
Wow … two years down the road someone else is looking for 8192 support.
So I got a shiny new TP 410. My teammate got the same machine. We both dispensed with Windows and installed Linux. His will do WiFi; mine will not. SOMEHOW he noticed the INTeL WiFi option and selected that when we ordered the machines. I didn't. Frankly, I would not have known to prefer the INTeL chipset versus RealTek.
Anyway … the 818x driver will simply not work with this beast. Guys, I am available to crunch on the code, recompile, hack it, whatever, but I would need guidance. (Might be wise to not fork the project, unless someone smarter than I am looks it over and says that's a good idea.)
So it seems that most users of the 8192 interface are using the driver supplied by RealTek. I found instructions on the web for building it. After having to man-handle the NetworkManager widget and other automation to clue-in that the NIC was live, it does in fact connect. But it is buggy. I can see why the Linux distros for the most part do not include it.
