[Bug 1239578] Re: No wireless support for Realtek RTL8192EE [10ec:818b]


I have no idea what your problem is. When I reboot with the RTL8192EE
installed, it connects quickly to one of my APs.

The output of 'dmesg | grep rtl' is

[   10.146821] rtl8192ee: Using firmware rtlwifi/rtl8192eefw.bin
[   10.242108] ieee80211 phy1: Selected rate control algorithm 'rtl_rc'
[   10.283731] rtlwifi: rtlwifi: wireless switch is on
[   10.297365] rtl8192ee 0000:02:00.0 wlp2s0: renamed from wlan0
[   20.079071] rtl8192ee 0000:02:00.0 wlp2s0: disabling HT/VHT due to WEP/TKIP use

The last line is because it connected with an 802.11g AP.. To check your
firmware, the command 'md5sum /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8192eefw.bin'
should return

c8ced945fe922aa0cdff91f40a77bf12  /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8192eefw.bin

I get the same results for either the 4.5-rc5 kernel from wireless-
drivers-next or the drivers from the rtlwifi_new GitHub repo.

Bug description:
  Open this bug to trace device driver RTL8192EE.

  We have seen this wireless card on some laptops, id is [10ec:818b],
  driver is RTL8192EE.

  This bug is only for the initial support of this WiFi adapter, it's
  not working 100% well yet, please report new "not working bug" or
  contact upstream but not keep posting comments, thanks.


  pull-request for trusty was NAKed because next minor Trusty release
  will use Utopic LTS kernel, which had already fixed this issue.

  please wait it or upgrade your whole distro to Utopic.
