[Bug 1298802] Re: Usb Wifi TP-Link WN8200ND cannot associate to access points


Peter Schüller, it would be best to just plug the dongle into Precise, have your computer already connected to the internet via ethernet or working WiFi, and then execute:
apport-collect 1298802

  Usb Wifi TP-Link WN8200ND cannot associate to access points

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The Usb Wifi dongle TP-Link WN8200ND (rtl8192cu driver) does not
  connect with a default 14.04 trusty updated one or two days ago from
  the internet.

  If I add the dkms module that replaces the builtin driver (see
  instructions and source code in [1]) then I can connect to some access
  points (like my cellphone tethering access point) but not to other
  access points where my laptop connects without any problems.

  This bug was reported with apport-bug --save on 14.04 and reported
  with apport-bug 12.04 so the additional data might have some problems
  (the dialog box looks very different on both systems and 14.04 seems
  to show much more logfiles) but I could not report from 14.04
