Review of Linux Compatibility

The PCI Express card Rosewill RNX-N250PCe bases on the Realtek RTL8192CE chipset. The card has the PCI ID 10ec:8178:

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter [10ec:8178] (rev 01)
Subsystem: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter [10ec:8178]
Kernel driver in use: rtl8192ce

and is supported by the rtl8192ce kernel module:

description: Wireless interface
product: RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
vendor: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
logical name: wlan0
version: 01
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list ethernet physical wireless
configuration: broadcast=yes driver=rtl8192ce driverversion=3.2.0-25-generic firmware=N/A ip=192.168.0.67 latency=0 link=yes multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bgn

This driver seems to run unstable in several distributions and a reduced bandwidth and crashes were reported. In such situations it can help to deactivate the hardware based encryption of the card and use a software based encryption instead. To achieve this, the following kernel options have to be set in the file /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8192ce.conf

options rtl8192ce swenc=1
