[Bug 1220007] Re: 0bda:8178 RTL8192CU continually reconnecting


Yes, I have been using the patched rtl8192cu driver for a month without
any issues.

The guys on the linux-wireless team were really good to work with. I
suggest opening your own bug on launchpad and then follow the directions
in comment #5.
