    Question ASUS PCE-N10 wireless N adapter

    I got a wireless adapter (N) in my PC but the driver from the distribution does not work very well. The connection is always dropping. I found in multiple forums the solution (download source from ASUS and compile it) ... the problem I have is that I can't execute the 'make' command successfully. Can someone help me ?

    I have openSUSE 12.2 (64 bits) and my wireless adapter is a ASUS PCE-N10 (from what I read, the driver should be RTL8192CE - I'm not 100% sure). BTW, when looking in network manager, my N adapter shows as a B/G adapter.

    Thank you

    Patrick

    Hi Malcolm,

    Thanks for the answer, I had a very interesting read.

    Since I don't want to do any errors, I will ask a simple question ...

    I did the command '/sbin/lspci -nn' and here is my output ...

    02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter [10ec:8176] (rev 01)
    03:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 09)

    I now see that I need the RTL8188CE driver ... is the RTL8192CE good for me ?

    Thank you very much for the precious help.

    Patrick

    Now that you included the PCI IDs, I can tell you that rtl8192ce is the correct
    driver for you. With some versions of the RTL8188CE, you need to have a new
    kernel, or use the compat-wireless, as described in the thread that you read.
    Unfortunately, the PCI ID is not sufficient to tell if your device is one of them.

    You need to be aware that the vendor driver needs a lot of changes to work with
    64-bit systems and newer kernels. I have made those changes *before* I pushed
    the driver into the kernel, thus I do not provide any support for people using
    those vendor drivers.

    Hi
    Yes the RTL8192CE is the one that supports your device;
    Code:
    pci:v000010ECd00008176sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    Try it out, it can always be uninstalled Else if you post in the
    wireless sub forum, the wireless driver developer for that modules hangs
    out there and will help you out.
