waterloo2005,

Check your kernel .config - you might have support for it. I'm running kernel 3.8.0-rc3.
Code:
grep 8192 .config
# CONFIG_RTL8192CE is not set
# CONFIG_RTL8192SE is not set
# CONFIG_RTL8192DE is not set
# CONFIG_RTL8192CU is not set

Symbol: RTL8192CU [=n] │
│ Type : tristate │
│ Prompt: Realtek RTL8192CU/RTL8188CU USB Wireless Network Adapter │
│ Defined at drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/Kconfig:46 │
│ Depends on: NETDEVICES [=y] && WLAN [=y] && MAC80211 [=y] && USB [=y] │
│ Location: │
│ -> Device Drivers │
│ -> Network device support (NETDEVICES [=y]) │
│ (1) -> Wireless LAN (WLAN [=y]) │
│ Selects: FW_LOADER [=y] && RTLWIFI [=n] && RTL8192C_COMMON [=n] │

The driver in kernel is not stable or usable . So my setting is :
Code:
grep 8192 .config
# CONFIG_RTL8192CE is not set
# CONFIG_RTL8192SE is not set
# CONFIG_RTL8192DE is not set
CONFIG_RTL8192CU=m
CONFIG_RTL8192C_COMMON=m

Do I need to update sys-devel/binutils to ~ arch ?

/home/xxxx/RTL8188C_8192C_USB_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105/driver/rtl8188C_8192C_usb_linux_v3.4.4_4749.20121105/os_dep/linux/os_intfs.c:778:9: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘wireless_handlers’


This is a C header error. Changing binutils versions/USE flags/etc will not
fix it. It is in the source code. The device driver is coded for a different
version of struct net_device than that provided by the included header files.

(Expects a different kenel version. You can find the definition of
struct net_device in /usr/src/linux/include/linux/netdevice.h. I did not
see it in /usr/include/linux/netdevice.h, so it is apparently not an
exported datatype that would be in the linux-headers package.
It is internal to the kernel.)

edit:
Sometimes struct definition errors are actually missing make menuconfig
options. Within the definition of some struct datatype, you might find
Code:

#ifdef SOME_CONFIG_OPTION
  [datatype] name;
#endif

which means that member of the struct is only defined if that config
option is enabled in the kernel. I do not know if that is the case here.

I have the same problem with the 8192cu driver. It frequently drops packets and disconnects from my router. When I compile the realtek driver it yields a similar error as above. Does anyone have a way to fix this??
