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

    It's the 'rtl8192ce'.

Automatically detected and set up as ath0. Was unable to detect the ESSID of a BT Home Hub but was able to connect and gain an IP via DHCP when details entered manually using System > Networking menu in Edgy. Booting with the card installed starts automatically. Card was added to an already installed system.

Works with the RTL8180 driver, but the range is pretty poor though.

Almost works out of the box on Gusty (7.10) with WPA and WEP - but keeps dropping connection. Only DHCP working so far. Works with WEP with rt73 driver from serialmonkey following this guide.
