I have the following problem. Since I installed a kernel update yesterday on my ubuntu 12.10 I thought I might check if there is a new realtek driver too for my wifi(8188ce chip is still very unstable in ubuntu).
What i found was a driver released on the 7th of February this year. I downloaded and installed the driver with the result that my wireless adapter ist not recognized by the system anymore. (http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=48&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#2722)
After untaring it I installed it like that:
sudo make sudo make install sudo reboot
So to resolve that issue I deinstalled it again with:
sudo make uninstall
But unfortunately my wireless adapter is still unrecognized. I even tried to install the older driver again in the same way but nothing changed.
Any ideas on that problem? I hope I didnt wrecked my wifi adapter.
lspci | grep wifi
03:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter (rev 01)
When i try to load the driver manually I get this Output:
sudo modprobe rtl8192ce FATAL: Error inserting rtl8192ce (/lib/modules/3.5.0-25-generic/updates/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192ce/rtl8192ce.ko): Invalid argument
