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


I just upgraded to the latest version of 14.10. The first time I started
up after upgrade, I couldn't see any networks. After a restart, I was
briefly able to see and connect to my local wireless network. When I
started to load webpages it disconnected, and I was no longer able to
see the network I had been connected to in the network list. I have been
trying disabling and enabling wi-fi from the drop-down menu, but even
when "Enable Wi-Fi" is checked I still see a greyed-out "Wi-Fi is
disabled" line.

I will try restarting again and will see if letting the connection go
for longer before I start trying to move data across it helps.

  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.
