I installed the driver from https://github.com/vincent-t/rt8192cu_dkms which installs the
8192cu driver (replacing the native
rtl8192cu driver) which should work with my
TP-LINK TL-WN821N v4.1 USB wifi adapter.
So far my Skype (on Ubuntu 15.04) works (meaning I have internet access and I could connect to my wireless hotspot) However I cannot load any homepage (I can ping 188.8.131.52 (google dns)) but cannot load any homepage?
lsmod | grep rtl
returns nothing (which is good, meaning no realtek drivers
rtl* drivers are loaded
lsmod | grep 81
8192cu which shows that the new driver is loaded.
lshw -C network
*-network description: Wireless interface physical id: 1 bus info: [email protected]:4 logical name: wlan0 serial: f4:f2:6d:18:f1:5b capabilities: ethernet physical wireless configuration: broadcast=yes driver=rtl8192cu ip=192.168.0.103 multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bgn
which shows that
driver=rtl8192cu loads the old driver? I dont get it, either that is strange and I have to manually say that wlan0 should use
8192cu driver. Or my internet connection is corrupted?
Anyone some idea?
