Hi,

i'm using a samsung n510 netbook, with a RTL8192E Chipset. Currently I use Linux Mint 11 (Kernel 2.6.38-12). I have installed the samsung-wireless package etc. but aren't able to connect to my wlan. I see my Access Point, but the connection can't be established. I tried also the latest Ubuntu. I'm a linux beginner and aren't able to troubleshoot....

Thanks Manu

I had similar problems.
this wireless card seems to try and use two drivers at once, so neither work.

open a terminal and
Code:
sudo lshw | grep RTL8192

you will probably get two drivers listed the E version and the SE version.
blacklist whichever you dont require in: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf


to blacklist a driver - again in a terminal
Code:
gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

enter password
add this line to the end of the text file,

blacklist <name of driver here>

eg: blacklist r8192se_pci

save and restart:
