wifi driver rtl8192 fix ubuntu

You need to get a few things installed. Those are:
  kernel headers
  build tools (gcc, make, etc)

You can obtain them by executing following commands:

For Debian/Ubuntu (and other systems equipped with apt tool)

apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms git

For Fedora (and other systems equipped with yum tool)

yum install kernel-devel gcc dkms git

For Fedora versions from 23 up, use the following command
dnf install kernel-devel gcc dkms git

Second step

Obtain the fixed drivers:

git clone https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes.git

Third step

Build and install a DKMS module. Execute this command without leaving the current directory!

dkms add ./rtl8192cu-fixes && dkms install 8192cu/1.10 && depmod -a

Fourth step

Block the native (and broken) drivers:

cp ./rtl8192cu-fixes/blacklist-native-rtl8192.conf /etc/modprobe.d/

Fifth step

The last step is to execute following command and enjoy your working WLAN!

modprobe 8192cu
