Hey, I have the rtl8188ce wireless card in a HP Pavilion g4-1215dx. Currently it is dropping links and still acting as though the wireless link is up & it is refusing to connect to some but not all wireless networks. In the same vein, it won't pull an IP address when it attempts to connect to a hotspot my phone makes, even though it is less than a foot from my phone.
Ok, so I installed BT R3 next to windows 7 on my Toshiba C855 s5214 laptop. When I start Wicd it recognizes and connects to my network and the wireless light is on. Whenever I open up a web browser the internet stops working, the wireless light remains on, and Wicd cannot find any networks until I reboot and am thus forced to repeat the process. My wireless card is a Realtek RTL8188CE.
I am familiar with BT, been using it since BT3. The problem I have is with 5r3, when I use wicd to connect to the internet. I have BT installed in dual-boot with Windows 7, not in a virtual machine. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L875D, and the wireless chipset is the RTL8188CE, which I need to use the 8185 drivers.
I installed the RTL8188CE driver off the realtek website. It will connect after a fresh boot and work well. But at some point it disconnects (usually within 15 mins) and then will not reconnect. It remains stuck at "Obtaining IP address..." until it fails to connect entirely and will not connect without reboot.

I am having significant problems with the internal wireless in my notebook, which is a Toshiba. The card in question is an RTL8188CE. The network connects, but then after a while hangs with no connectivity, although NM claims that there is connection.
I have a TP-LINK WN821N and two computers, both with 12.04 LTS and 12.04.2 LTS. The computer with 12.04 does not have graphical environment, I tried network-manager but did not work so I installed wicd (with wicd-cli and wicd-curses).
