Description Zombie Ryushu 2016-03-20 05:14:21 MSK
I request the DKMS Driver for the rtl8188cu be packaged into Rosa with the dkms-rtl8188eu as its basis. 

download the source code of the right driver as follows. Copy and paste the following command line into the terminal:

git clone https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes.git

The in Kernel driver has issues with associating to WPA Enterprise Networks due to system firmware.

I suppose, you mean rtl8192cu because https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes.git provides that driver rather than rtl8188cu.

I built that driver to Contrib: dkms-rtl8192cu.
The updated version of dkms-rtl8188eu is also available there.

Which device do you need that custom driver for? What are its USB IDs (lsusb would tell, I suppose)?

I ask because the device 0bda:8179 mentioned in the URL you specified is handled by rtl8188eu rather than rtl8192cu.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B015R3R9BW/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all These are they. 

They throw errors when associating VIA WPA Enterprise.

Thanks for the info. 

So, it is 0BDA:8176. Yes, the new rtl8192cu driver lists such devices as supported.

After you install dkms-rtl8192cu and reboot the system, the correct driver should load automatically when the device is plugged in.

Should you need to load the driver manually, its name is "rtl8192cu_fixed". I renamed it to avoid collisions with the blacklisted rtl8192cu.
