1 Hi,
3 I had a rtl8192ce in my laptop. Nothing but problems with Linux. Don't
4 know why, but the signal strength always was much better when using Windows.
6 For me, the rtl8192ce only worked when using it as a module, not hard
7 compiled in the kernel.
8 Second, it is important to know that this WiFi Card stopped working for
9 me with kernels > 3.17. The card was detected but it didn't show up any
10 WiFis.
11 I read that there were fundamental changes to the rtlwifi stack in 3.18.
13 Eventually I decided to buy a new card and better card (Intel Centrino,
14 I now can connect to 5GhZ networks :) ) for my laptop and I'm so happy
15 now :)
17 No more Realtek WiFi cards for me.
19 Cheers
20 Ralf

I googled it and found out that many people have the same problem with this chip ( but mostly with *buntu flavours). I also found the workaround here: This box will be soon ( I hope ) will be transferred to Gentoo. I wonder if some one here is using this chip with Gentoo with new kernels, does it run ok and if this problem of *buntu specific? Thanks
