Summary

  • Model - This is the full device model as noted on the box.
  • Chipset - Chipset vendor name, chipset name, vendor code, and device code. For example, if one was looking for a PCI device:

    lspci -vvnn | grep Network
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter [10ec:8176] (rev 01)

    It's the 'Realtek', 'RTL8188CE', and '[10ec:8176] (rev 01)'.

  • Driver - For a PCI device:

    lspci -vvnn | grep -A 9 Network | grep Kernel
            Kernel driver in use: rtl8192ce

    It's the 'rtl8192ce'.

  • Works "out of the box"
    • Yes - It works perfectly with no manual modifications, or degraded performance.
    • No - It doesn't work at all, has degraded performance, or requires manual configuration to make it work. Please add a comment to what you had to do to get it to work if this was possible, as well as a URL to an outstanding Launchpad bug report to address the issues encountered.

Realtek 8185

ndiswrapper

No

Works in Feisty with ndiswapper-utils and the Realtek Windows driver (net8185.inf). Belkin's driver won't work well. After installing the driver, use the command "ndiswrapper -a" to link the driver to the card. My computer would intermittently freeze for 5 seconds, but this is rare after I stopped NetworkManager (sudo /etc/dbus-1/event.d/26NetworkManagerDispatcher stop); got my network's SSID (iwlist wlan0 scan) and configured the interface (sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid <ESSID>)

See Belkin F5D7011ef. Must manually set frequency to that of your router using sudo iwconfig <wlan0> channel <channel>. To find your router's frequency use iwlist <wlan0> scan. bcmw15a.inf can be found as part of R74092us.exe.
