RTL8192cu wireless dongle driver for Wary 220.127.116.11
I recently picked up a cheap wireless dongle in the hope of restoring Internet access to my ancient Sony laptop. The dongle is a Netis WF-2111 and needs an RTL8192cu driver. The laptop runs Wary 18.104.22.168 frugal, 192M ram with a 1G swap partition, and I need the dongle to be able to connect using WPA2.
Specifically, I used the Wary 22.214.171.124 devx SFS together with this kernel source patch SFS:
Instead of using the Linux driver on the dongle installation CD, I followed shariebeth and downloaded the current driver (in my case, from the Netis web site), and compiled and installed exactly as she describes.
Unlike shariebeth, I have not had a problem with Wary "forgetting" the WPA2 key after a reboot (knock wood).
I'm not PET-savvy but since the driver is just one file, I've attached a zip file here containing the driver and a shell script to install it.
