Mint / Ubuntu Wireless Adapter

Found this excellent post that solved all my "no-name" wireless adapter installation woes.

I used the v3.4.4 (2012/11/12) driver on Mint 14.

I got one error during installation:
ERROR: Module 8192cu does not exist in /proc/modules

and changed Step 5 to use pluma instead of gedit

sudo pluma /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf


In case the original post ever disappears here are the essential bits:

Download the Realtek RTL8191SU drivers from here

Navigate to the downloaded folder and install the drivers with:

sudo bash install.sh

Blacklist the original drivers with:

sudo pluma /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Go to the end of the file and add the line: blacklist rtl8192cu

Reboot
