Hey, guys. Maybe kind of a nooby question, but what do I have to do after installing? I did 'dkms autoinstall' and blacklisted rt8192cu (while default was rtl8192ce, tried blacklisting it too, didn't help), but I have no clue. Which modules to load? I have exactly rtl8192ce wlan card.

I did, but this problem doesn't really seem to have a solution. I guess I'll stick with my usb dongle

You should probably open a forum thread at this point. But you can disable power saving with this command:
sudo iw dev wlan0 set power_save off
(change wlan0 to the name of your connection.)

Ok guys I followed your kind advices and now I got it working! But it's still not enough, because if I'm too far away from the access point I keep disconnecting, sometimes it doesn't stay connected enough to even authenticate. If I use windows or another distro I get full signal! (I also get full signal, if it works, but it keeps disconnecting). I disabled power saving before compiling and packet loss is almost completely gone, but I need to solve this. I tried to compile the linux_mac80211_0012.0207.2013.tar.bz2 by myself but I'm not good enough, there are errors I don't know how to fix. Can you please tell me how to try to disable power saving by adding a parameter to the module? I don't know what else to try!

This is the comment:

Please add some missing IDs for some adapters: https://github.com/archlinuxarm/PKGBUILDs/blob/master/aur/dkms-8192cu/add_missing_ids_netgear_dlink.patch

Also disabling power saving mode may solve some packet loss problems by adding sed -i 's/^CONFIG_POWER_SAVING\ \ \ =\ y/CONFIG_POWER_SAVING\ =\ n/' Makefile into pkgbuild like in here: https://github.com/archlinuxarm/PKGBUILDs/blob/master/aur/dkms-8192cu/PKGBUILD

Try what I suggested in comments several month ago. Disable power saving mode - either before compiling by modifying Makefile or after by using module params

Oh wait, this package already takes care of the blacklisting. Sorry.

You need to blacklist rt8192cu and to run "dkms autoinstall" (the latter after each kernel update).

Hello guys, I have the 8188CE wifi card. I tried to compile and then install with pacman and there was no issues, but nothing changed. I don't know if I have to enable this or something. My wifi works just like before: 30% packet loss and disconnect every 15 seconds
