The system runs fine, but doesn't like his RTL8188CUS-based nano Wi-Fi USB stick.
I saw that this is supposed to work o.k., but it doesn't.
Tried various kernels, but to no avail.
Using the default kernel, he could see the WLAN access point, but couldn't connect to it (got some "time-out" message), plus the machine got stuck when shutting down (some NetworkManager problem).
iwconfig says:Bus 006 Device 002: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter
Anyone got an idea what can be done about that?wlan0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID:off/any
