I think I might have found the solution to your problem. Realtek has Linux drivers for RTL8188CE.

Thanks but the driver doesn't fix my problem. – Javier Gonzalez Oct 26 '12 at 20:53

Try downloading Wicd network manager, just connect to your network and if it still doesn't work check Preferences -> Advanced.

Realtek released another driver this month 07.02.2013 For me this driver is finally working fine. I have no more connection problems. But important is: You have to delete any configs that you might have created for example


The parameter are no longer valid with the new driver and if you don't delete the old config you are not able to load the new driver.
