I'm pretty sure kernel was updated as well.
This is a upgraded Sid install, One of the commands I show, shows all installed Kernels,
This is a old Pentium 3 IBM laptop so it is kernel limited on what may boot otr not.

Kernel did not get touched during a upgrade to sid. Kernel installs are separate in Debian.
At least for me.

@roky - I just did a squeeze to wheezy upgrade and the kernel DID get upgraded when using apt-get dist-upgrade.

just adding fuel to the fire, how about trying

Code:
rfkill --list
and see if maybe there is some sort of soft-switch blocking your wifi. Stranger things have happened.

I use the latest Jessie kernel. Kernel version in Sid appears to be the same: https://packages.debian.org/search?k...ll&section=all
Kernel.org says rtl8188ee is supported: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/...28rtl8188ee%29

Yes, the older version of kernel was not deleted during upgrade and the newer kernel (3.14) was installed. I use the latter.

Great idea. I tried that already, no soft-blocks there.

rokytnji,
My wireless card works perfectly well with Exton's kernel found here: http://extonlinux.wordpress.com/2014...on-3-16-0-rc6/
Thank you very much for your useful help!


So, it works with standard Ubuntu kernel 3.13 and Exton's kernel 3.16 made for Ubuntu. And it does not work with Debian Wheezy 3.2 and Debian Jessie 3.14-3.
Thus, the question is the same: how was that implemented and how to make the same in Debian kernel.

Well, one way would be to build your own, using the kernel configuration that ubuntu or exton does. The configuration files will typically be located in /boot alongside the kernel, if they package them so.

Yes, I think, this is what I'll try next. Thanks.
