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.

Running Ubuntu 6.06 Dapper Drake. Detected card immediately and showed as active in Network Settings, but unable to connect to access point. Follow instructions in this thread http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=75448&highlight=5410 and everything seems to work just fine!

The latest ndiswrapper release source must be downloaded from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/ and the directions for building WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper followed while replacing ndiswrapper-1.1 with the version downloaded (i.e. latest at time of writing = ndiswrapper-1.5); everything works except the signal strength monitor, probably because it gets compiled against version 17 of the wireless extensions instead of 18; lastly, you'll probably need to install gcc3.4 using Synaptic otherwise build will fail

On Feisty, the udev rule should be: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idProduct}=="011b", ATTR{idVendor}=="0baf", ATTR{bConfigurationValue}="1". Value 011b depends on product (use lsusb command). Works fine with USR5421X.inf and networkmanager.
