I had a hard time installing the wireless driver for my debian. My debian was Sqeeze but soon after I realized Wheezy was the one to support my wireless adapter, realtek 8188CE,I upgraded to wheezy. Here is my
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free deb http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free deb-src http://security.debian.org/ wheezy/updates main contrib non-free
I followed the exact steps listed on the Debian wiki. At step 4, after I typed in iwconfig,there was no tag for wifi (shouldn't it be there?), I figured the wifi module was not loaded, but I didn't know how to check and add it
Here is my printout:
clint@Thinkpad-W520:~$ lspci | grep -i wifi 03:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter (rev 01)
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. pan0 no wireless extensions.
