Hi

I have already installed these RTL8192CE drivers (using previous version 92ce_se_de_linux_mac80211_0004.0816.2011.tar.gz) on a system with a gentoo xfce desktop. Which did not present any problem.

But when trying to install on a command line only system on the same laptop but a different partition. I get the following errors:

Check your kernel, you shouldn't need the driver.

Hi MikeTbob

I tried the kernel drivers quite some time ago when I first purchased this laptop. I never could get them to work but did find information on the net somewhere that said that the kernel drivers did not

work on this particular controller.

Anyhow my wireless seems to be working fine now. SEE /viewtopic-t-935872.html
