I have a Realtek RTL 8190 (802.11n) Wireless controller.
> lspci -v | grep Network 04:01.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8190
I first installed the driver rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0010.1012.2009_64bit.tar.gz, but apparently that does not work for the 8190.
On searching deeper, I found that I should use
ndiswrapper with the Windows drivers, following these instructions. I downloaded the 64-bit drivers, installed them with ndiswrapper, and verified that the installation worked:
$ ndiswrapper -l net819xp : driver installed device (10EC:8190) present
But still the driver does not work:
$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
I read that I needed to execute
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper to start it, but that didn't change a thing.
Does anybody have any insights? Is the rtl8192se driver maybe conflicting? How do I remove that one?
