  Realtek (USB Wireless adapter)
  Mint 18.x
  Works perfectly
What doesn't work:

Standard problem with WiFi, i have Netis wf-2116 USB, after installing Linux Mint, I have a problem with a wifi adapter, it does not work until I remove it and re-insert it into the enclosure. I managed to install it through the command

What was done to make it work:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
git clone
sudo dkms add ./rtl8192cu-fixes
sudo dkms install 8192cu/1.11
sudo depmod -a
sudo cp ./rtl8192cu-fixes/blacklist-native-rtl8192.conf /etc/modprobe.d/
sudo cp ./rtl8192cu-fixes/8192cu-disable-power-management.conf /etc/modprobe.d/
(it works great) :)
