Hier ist die Lösung beschrieben:

First of all, ensure you have the necessary prerequisites:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms git

Clone the updated driver with git:

git clone

Set it up as a DKMS module:

sudo dkms add ./rtl8192cu-fixes

Build and install the driver, you may need check the version here (e.g. 1.9 may change):

sudo dkms install 8192cu/1.9

Refresh the module list:

sudo depmod -a

Ensure the native (and broken) kernel driver is blacklisted:

sudo cp ./rtl8192cu-fixes/blacklist-native-rtl8192.conf /etc/modprobe.d/

Let’s not take any chances. Instruct Ubuntu to load the new driver when it starts up.

echo 8192cu | sudo tee -a /etc/modules


You’re done.

Thanks to P. Varet for this awesome fix.
