[ubuntu] HP Pavillion wireless issues - RTL8188ce

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – 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. Nothing seems to help this, although other laptops running the same exact version of ubuntu, 12.04 x64 can connect without issue. I've tried using wicd & have downloaded the drivers off realtek's website, compiled them &a (Hardware)
