Bug#581554: Firmware or driver
 
Mainly because that is where people seem to be looking for a solution!
Also because the firmware with 0.26 is identical with earlier firmware
that I have downloaded and opinion seems to be that different firmware
is needed for a 64bit kernel. And because the messages I am getting are
similar to those reported above:

Jul 18 06:02:40 jo kernel:

To be clear, I presume by "driver" you are referring to the RTL8192E
staging driver that I have compiled into the kernel.


How can I check whether the problem is with the firmware or the driver?

John
