Im trying to update the driver for realtek usb wifi adapter.
model : 0bda:8171 RTL8188SU
I used this guide.
sudo apt-get install git build-essential git clone https://github.com/chunkeey/rtl8192su.git cd rtl8192su make sudo make load
but got this:
Im stuck on 'make' procedure
I've read that wifi drivers needs to be reinstalled every after kernel updates, are all kernel updates equal or should i only be reinstalling after a specific kernel update was done?
I tried the ndiswrapper method before. using this
disregarding the step about blacklisting the old driver because wifis cannot be detected.
inspite of disregarding the blacklisting, Wifi became stable,so I assumed it must be the ndiswrapper, but after 2days,after an update,it is intermittent again.
observation after the ndiswrapper procedure:
the driver listed after doing :
sudo lshw -C network
is still unchanged,showing : r8712u , it should be updated to something else right?
That is why Im changing the driver update method into a non-ndiswrapper method. Unfortunately,its not succesfull (yet)
issues im trying to fix:
intermittent wifi connection,fixing it by driver update
