I am running Ubuntu 14.04 and I am new to Linux and networking. I am having trouble with my ASUS N-13 network adapter, I get a signal but that signal drops often. What can I do?
I have just copied and pasted as is from the README:
Ensure you have the necessary prerequisites:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
Clone this repository:
git clone https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes.git
Set it up as a DKMS module:
sudo dkms add ./rtl8192cu-fixes
Build and install it:
sudo dkms install 8192cu/1.11
Refresh the module list:
sudo depmod -a
Ensure the native (and broken) kernel driver is blacklisted:
sudo cp ./rtl8192cu-fixes/blacklist-native-rtl8192.conf /etc/modprobe.d/
And reboot. You're done.
usb-n13 is very finnicky on dual boot system. when i am using full time linux, rebooting directly to linux from linux session, the card will give me full 40Mbs internet speed. Similarly, if i reboot directly to windows from windows session, it will give me full 40Mbps. And if I were to boot from linux to windows session, it will be full speed too. But, if i were to reboot to linux from windows session, the speed will degrade to 1 Mbps. To fix it, i unplugged and replugged, it will be behave good again at 40Mbps. All said, this is a very good card when it works.
