Device is detected as a USB network adaptor by Linux Mint.
If I manually type in the name of the network I want to connect to, the device will list the signal strength of that network.
That's about it for positives/'what works'...
|What doesn't work:|
I have not successfully been able to connect to a wireless network using this device.
It does not detect my local wireless network if I do not manually type in the name of the network I want to connect to.
|What was done to make it work:|
I have tried both the generic 'compat-wireless' drivers, as well as drivers downloaded from the Realtek website. Neither work.
I did a comprehensive troubleshooting session with other Linux Mint users. The results are in this thread: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=128556
In the end we reached the end of the road of possibilities with the current available drivers, and abandoned trying to make it work.
Note that there are two versions of the product named 'Asus USB-N13': the 'A1' revision, and the 'B1' revision.
A1 has a Ralink RT3072 chip, B1 has a Realtek RTL8192CU chip.
My version is the B1 with the Realtek RTL8192CU chip.
Problems affecting my version may not affect the other one.
