Running Mint xfce Tessa. After migrating to Mint I discovered my realtek RTL8188CE no longer works, or rather instead of 20 down 10 up, gets 1 mbps down.
After running Ben's updates several times, I once found the adapter working perfectly, faster than it did in Windows. However, this reconfiguration must have disappeared in a reboot and I haven't gotten it working again since. (build-essential and lib-gen-headers are installed. This was run using the install script and makefiles.)
I've re-run install several times since and the "i am running this driver" script inside the package shows:
-e [*] You are running the new rtlwifi -e [*] You are running the new rtl8192c_common -e [*] You are running the new rtl8192ce
Yet the speed is back to pre-install, nonfunctional levels.
The script seems to consider rt18192c and my adapter equivalent:
if pciDetectsRtl8188ce ; then if runningAnyRtl8192c_common; then if runningOurRtl8192c_common; then runningNew "rtl8192c_common"
I've seen that some others have had trouble getting this fix to stick, but not sure what the solution might be.
