  2357:0100 TP-Link 8200ND USB Wireless adapter won't work...

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  This device uses an rtl8192cu Realtek driver as far as I know.
  If you plug the device in via USB, or boot with it connected, nothing happens.

  You have to execute the following commands, to at least have it in NetworkManager/iwconfig.
  # sudo su
  # modprobe rtl8192cu
  # echo 2357 0100 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rtl8192cu/new_id
  # exit

  Even after this, you won't be able to connect.
  Authentication fails with a WPA2 router, with:
  # wlan1: authenticate with .:.:.:.:..
  # wlan1: direct probe to ... (try 1/3)
  # wlan1: direct probe to ... (try 2/3)
  # wlan1: direct probe to ... (try 3/3)
  # authentication with ... timed out.

  And this goes on and on. No other messages, just this one. Twice, every time I try to connect with it.
