ALFA USB - R8187 drivers in Ubuntu


Recommended Posts

Having a problem with drivers for the Alfa in Ubuntu.

First off, the Alfa Detects and seems to be working with the RTL8187 drivers.

However, I installed the latest R8187 drivers, and I get even more power/range and it supports injection etc...

The problem I'm encountering is that when I use the RTL8187 drivers, I can't connect to my access point when it is encrypted in WEP or WPA. But when I 'rmmod R8187" and "modprobe RTL8187" I can connect to any AP. but the range really sucks. not satisfied.

I would like to be able to connect to My WPA Access Point with the R8187 drivers.

Has anyone had this problem before?

Thanks in Advance.

I think I just have issues with wifi in general with Ubuntu. I use my Alfa with a Dell Mini 10v, and the wifi on both sides seems to suck in Ubuntu. No issues at all with Windows, nor OS X with the built in wifi (haven't tried the Alfa, and I need to reinstall OS X). I get issues with connecting, and then issues with staying connected, and probably a few other things I'm forgetting about.
