Kernel update and Wireless issues

Hello,

following an update from Kubuntu to Mint 13 Maya (kernel 3.2.0-23, x86_64) I encounter the usual issues with my rlt8192se network adapter. (Poor connection, get fixed a few minutes by unloading and reloading the r8192e_pci module and then loosing connection again).
As far as I remember, I previously managed to solve these issues using the voria ppa and associated samsung-wireless package. Apparently, this is not available for kernel 3.2.0-23. I tried to build it, but it didn't work neither.

The driver from the Realtek homepage didn't help fixing things...

Did I miss something? If not are there any plans to update this package in the future. Or any other solution?

Regards,

I had a similar problem with the wireless network card. If I took the power cord from the laptop to the network no longer worked.
To solve the problem I did this, on terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo touch /etc/pm/power.d/wireless

Hi,

so I tested it and it didn't make things better. Actually, I never noticed any relation between pluging or unplugging the power supply and the wireless network issues. There was no files in /etc/pm/power.d/. I think the issue is more related to the driver. Nevertheless thank you for the input.

Any other suggestions?

Hi,

In the meantime I looked at the HOWTO thread about the repository for 12.04. Also Kernel 3.2.xxx. There's no mentionning of wireless drivers support. Neither are there comments about issues with Networking. I wonder if my problem might be related with the fact that I use a 64bits version of Ubuntu (Mint).

Anybody having some experience with this subject?

BTW My Samsung is a R522-JS07DE...

Regards,

"USB Wireless", you mean a separate USB-Wireless adapter? It would probably work, but investing 25EUR to purchase an adapter to achieve a fuction that is already built-in cannot be the solution...

Worst case I could downgrade to 32bits, but it's quite a lot of work just to check if it works.

Thank you for the suggestion anyway!
