Please detach the ethernet and reboot. Check to see if the wireless driver is loaded:

lsmod | grep rtl

If not, load it:

sudo modprobe rtl8192cu

Was a wireless interface created, ideally wlan0?

iwconfig

Does it scan and see your network?

sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

Is the wireless switch or key combination set to enable wireless?

rfkill list all

My original questions remain. After reboot, is the module loaded? Does the wireless come to life if you modprobe it?? –  chili555 Nov 8 '13 at 2:41
    
yes it's loaded after reboot and i can see my wireless but it taking a while to connect to it and when I connected I don't have internet access :/ –  viktorhubinette Nov 8 '13 at 8:37
