  Edimax (WIFI card/adapter/dongle)
  Mint (older version)
  Doesn't work as expected
What works:

Adapter is seen/reconized by Linux Mint.

What doesn't work:

Did not connect/go online.

What was done to make it work:

In Wix XP I Downloaded the rtlwifi_new ... master.zip file.
(post below)
Then in LM followed JeremyB instructions.

There should be a link to download everything as a zip file or https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new ... master.zip
Then you can extract it, go into the extracted folder, choose open in terminal and see if the following works

Code: Select all
make
sudo make install




This allowd me to connect in LM, however had issues with dropping connection after several minutes.


So followed the instructions for rtl8192cu-fixes in same post.
https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes/blob/6a58e2f77d75ca9a3b80868a344ed4e2ea1816df/README.md

This is working now.
