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


After some days of using Utopic on my L440, I'm able to use wifi even for longer duration (~3 hours). The connection was okay-ish mostly (ping showed ~25% packet loss). Later, it failed to do a 'git push', that's when I switched to wired connection. :)
But I reckon that it has come a long way.. from not detecting the wifi card at all to somewhat 'surf-able' connection. Hoping that it'll be more stable soon. A BIG thanks to everyone who have contributed !!

  Open this bug to trace device driver RTL8192EE.

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


  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.
