Sub_title: PP 5.5 will not recognise the 8732 wireless hardware
 

I have a Toshiba Satellite C850, it is fitted with a Realtek 8723AE wireless network chip, PP 5.5 downloaded today, will not load a driver for this, the hardware shows up when inspecting the system, but none of the 3 network setup options will recognise the hardware, how do I fix this?
Thanks in advance.
PP 5.5 is fast on this machine, just no wireless network.

It is a new driver and the support has been added with 3.8.X kernels.
One possibility is to test Upup Precise 3.8.3.1.

It has the needed driver and firmware included.
