wlan0 still uses wrong driver?

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 (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 

returns 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= 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?
