I have been doing a lot of debugging but am not making much progress. I suspect the 802.11 b/g/n phy is not being initialized correctly, but I'm pretty far outside my domain on this one. Is anyone successfully using this driver with a 2.4GHz 802.11g network?I have several different models - some work better than others. What is the PCI ID for yours?This is the one I have: 02:00.0 Network controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:8193] 02:00.1 Network controller : Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:8193] (rev 01)It turns out that both kinds have the same ID. I think one of them is a prototype, while the other is probably a production unit. Obviously, bitrot has set in while I wasn't testing. With the kernel driver, neither unit can even scan in the 2.4 GHz band. Using the latest version of the vendor driver, the production version connects with APs running WEP, WPA, or WPA2. The prototype can only handle WEP. Obviously, I have some work to do. In the meantime, I will send you a tarball containing the vendor driver - privately so as not to spam the list.Thank you, I appreciate that. Of course, my preference would be to fix up the kernel driver. I don't mind doing some manual bisection with compat-wireless releases unless you think that would be a total waste of time. Do you have any sense for what the last working kernel version would have been? As you suggest, we may need to use the vendor driver in the meantime. Thanks again for sending it over (although I suspect it is the same version I downloaded from Realtek's web site).
It started with the Realtek version, but has some important bug fixes that I wanted you to have.
Of course, we want to fix the kernel version, but if you want to bisect compat-wireless, that would be a big help. In the meantime, I will try bisecting wireless-testing when I get a chance.
