kernel in #19 disabled MSI of RTL8188EE, which means Bug #1296591 introduced a regression.

let's fallback to pin-based mode until the rtlwifi's msi support get good compatibility.

working on upstream.

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-trusty' to 'verification-done-trusty'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

@newuser, could you please do the verification as #26? Thanks.

Adam Lee (adam8157) wrote :

This issue only happens on some very certain system such as @newuser 's

Set to 'verification-done-trusty' since I did some regression test on system with rtl8188ee and @newuser 's machine works well with my kernel on #19 which does the same thing on rtl8188ee as -proposed kernel.

Tips for RTL8188EE [10ec:8179] and RTL8723BE [10ec:b723] users: those hardware modules have MSI compatibility issue, on some certain platforms they work fine with MSI but break connections without MSI, on some other certain platforms it's opposite. You could try to toggle its module parameter "msi"
