Hi,
I had to change blacklist-8192cu-dkms.conf from
(like comment of beef):
blacklist rtlwifi
blacklist rtl8192c_common
blacklist rtl8192cu
blacklist rtl8xxxu

to:
blacklist rtl8192cu

works for me

hi,
after update kernel to 4.9.7-1, doesn't work for me

sudo dkms install -m 8192cu -v 1.10

8192cu:
Running module version sanity check.
Error! Module version v4.0.2_9000.20130911 for 8192cu.ko
is not newer than what is already found in kernel 4.9.7-1-ARCH (v4.0.2_9000.20130911).
You may override by specifying --force.

depmod.......

DKMS: install completed.

Change something. It no longer work. There's probably a conflict of module names.

Same for me! Maybe it should be changed!

Like @beef, I also had to comment out the "blacklist rtl8xxxu" line from the blacklists file, otherwise the 8192cu module loaded, but my wireless card showed up as ethernet in "networkctl list" and couldn't be used in wireless tools like network manager. With rtlwifi, rtl8190c_common, and rtl8192cu blacklisted, but rtl8xxxu and 8192cu loaded, things work as expected and I don't have the constant connection drops I have with the standard kernel driver.

@beef, it's ok to blacklist:
blacklist rtlwifi
blacklist rtl8192c_common
blacklist rtl8192cu
blacklist rtl8xxxu
If you don't blacklist this drivers, you are working with the kernel drivers, not this package drivers.

blacklist rtlwifi
blacklist rtl8192c_common
blacklist rtl8192cu
blacklist rtl8xxxu

to:
blacklist rtl8192cu

because rtl8xxxu is still needed.

@ohmysql, updated with github sources, same version, no changes to package after all.

I'm no expert: just wondering if it'd be possible to move the patch files from dropbox to github?

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:

[device]
wifi.scan-rand-mac-address=no

restart networkmanager service and works ok.
