Re: Extraordinary Wifi problems with Wifi card rtl8188ee

All right, it's working for me and should (theoretically) work for the rest of you when you update.  Cheers [SOLVED]!

Re: Extraordinary Wifi problems with Wifi card rtl8188ee

Hey!

I have a similar issue on a netbook and Linux 3.16.2... did you encounter your problem with a recent kernel?

I still get problems (even with the latest kernel) but there's this : https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new

I dont think it's affecting me, and I have the same kernel.  My research tells me it may be motherboard specific.

Re: Extraordinary Wifi problems with Wifi card rtl8188ee

I bought a new laptop with this crap wifi card too unfortunately. Doooh! Larry Finger has a github repository with an improved driver. I'm pretty sure he's the kernel maintainer. It still needs work according to him but it seems to be working ok for me. Hopefully it will be merged soon.

git clone http://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new.git
cd /path/to/rtlwifi_new
make
sudo modprobe -rv rtl8188ee
sudo make install
sudo modprobe -v rtl8188ee

If the last step fails, try rebooting and the new driver should load.

Re: Extraordinary Wifi problems with Wifi card rtl8188ee

I didn't even notice someone else linked to it above. Haha. I'm an idiot, sorry. I was meaning to do it a while back but I couldn't remember my friggin' password. smile I've been trying to remember it for like two months.. It finally came to me in an epiphany..after about twenty tries today.. (I can't remember my email password either) I'm losing it.

I just registered to thank you guys. I have a Lenovo e545 with a RTL8192EE. Ran into the same problem with Ubuntu 14.04.1 and 14.10. Your fix worked for me, stable pings again. I also had to reboot. Was having very erratic ping times and intermittent packet loss before.

Thank you! This method worked flawlessly for me on an HP15-r011dx laptop running 3.17.6-1-ARCH. I was able to complete the final step without needing to reboot.
Finally an end to the constant dropouts in throughput and dropped connections!

Re: Extraordinary Wifi problems with Wifi card rtl8188ee

With the rtlwifi_new drivers and disabling the power saver options it works a lot better.


$ > modinfo rtl8188ee | grep parm                                                                                                                                 
parm:           swenc:Set to 1 for software crypto (default 0)
parm:           ips:Set to 0 to not use link power save (default 1)
parm:           swlps:Set to 1 to use SW control power save (default 0)
parm:           fwlps:Set to 1 to use FW control power save (default 1)
parm:           msi:Set to 1 to use MSI interrupts mode (default 1)
parm:           debug:Set debug level (0-5) (default 0) (int)
parm:           disable_watchdog:Set to 1 to disable the watchdog (default 0)

On /etc/modprobe.d add this:

$ > cat rtl8188ee.conf
options rtl8188ee fwlps=0 ips=0
