Confirmed, this is NM bug, if I removed 8192cu-dkms packages, I found USB Wifi Optin on NM context menu but the signal and speed will decrease or doesn't display correctly.
Liked jpcima said, I roll-backed to NM 1.0.10-2 then remove / reboot / re-install, my Wifi Adapter is workings flawlessly again.

This is a NetworkManager bug: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=210868

You can still use tools like wifi-menu to connect.

It is not working for me either, neither with the default kernel one nor with this aur package.

Sorry, I've remove 8192cu-dkms package then reboot, it works like charm. I guess it has been supported by kernel v4.4.5

Bump to the 8192cu-dkms v4.0.2_9000-9, with the new rtl8xxxu kernel 4.4 upstream driver blacklisted.

light0 commented on 2016-02-17 18:51

Problems, problems, lots of problems. So how are we going to get this fixed?

NoMore66201 commented on 2016-02-17 15:34

I confirm issues with kernel 4.4.1, unusable with university wireless network, frequent disconnections with home wifi. Downgraded to 4.3.3 and working fine.

BasioMeusPuga commented on 2016-02-15 08:23

While this is still better than the kernel driver, I'm afraid that with the update to 4.4.1, my RTL8192CU reports incorrect bit rates, has had its link quality drop to less than half, and is now prone to the occasional disconnect/reconnect thing.

The official Realtek driver (that this package uses) was updated back in 2013. So I guess this is about the kernel now.

runnytu commented on 2016-02-08 20:48

With kernel 4.4.1-2-ARCH works properly for me, no problems.
