Ubuntu – D-Link DWA-130 rev E1 RTL8191SU Wont Connect to Network (14.04)


Having a problem with getting my D-Link usb Wi-Fi dongle to connect to my wifi network.

The dongle works, it scans and gives back the SSID's that are available, however when I try to connect, it will not, it attempts connection and fails, then retries. Every once in a while it will work, but it seems completely random.

I tried this fix and my wifi connected, when I restarted, after a bit I shut the system down, came back the next day and my wifi dongle is back to the connection loop from hell

Best Answer

You can solve it by re-installing the driver and running

sudo update-initramfs -u

after that.
