Thanks for the quick fix, I will test asap (it's not on my machine) and report back!

@PhotonX, This is because USB code 0df6:0077 isn't in the driver source code list of accepted devices, I update de source code to add compatibility with this device, reinstall the package should fix the issue.

Trying to use this with a Sitecom WLA-2100 (300M), USB code 0df6:0077. The module builds fine and everything looks good but after a reboot the module is not loaded. "lsmod | grep 8192" and "dmesg | grep 8192" give no output. When plugging off and on the Wifi stick, dmesg reports that it is running with xhci_hcd which is complete rubbish. What could be the reason for the problem? Running kernel 4.9.24.

@runnytu, @kleinph;

Modifying NetworkManager.conf get me to the fullest possible speed and the highest signal strength.

@runnytu, ups sorry, I must habe overlooked that.

The problem with NM 1.4.2 is for a new functionality added in the new version, after upgrade both packages to 1.4.2, you need to add in etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf at the end of file this:


restart networkmanager service and works ok.

Are you using NetworkManager? That may be the problem, because it randomizes MAC addresses while scanning for networks. This seems to be not well supported by this driver and it constantly fails and spams the log with such messages:
NetworkManager: <info> device (wlan0): supplicant interface state: disabled -> inactive
NetworkManager: <warn> device (wlan0): set-hw-addr: new MAC address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX not successfully set (scanning)
NetworkManager: <info> device (wlan0): supplicant interface state: inactive -> disabled

I put
in my /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf it worked like a charm.

@runnytu maybe you could put this info somewhere.

(edit: posted the correct config snippet)

One more time, rtlwifi, rtl8192c_common and rtl8xxxu are the kernel included drivers, and rtl8192cu the provided by this package, to work with the provided by this package only is need it rtl8192cu and blacklisted the rest, if not you are using the kernel drivers and don't need this package after all, with this blacklist is working since ever, if not working maybe you need some more packages or config change but the package still working ok.
