Now according to that, there's 4 different versions of the WN8222N. 3 of them seem to work fine (probably because they are Atheros based). The one that doesn't work, which I'm assuming is the one you have, is a Realtek chipset, which can sometimes be finicky on Linux. Can you confirm that your device is the 3.0 version? It might say on the packaging, or maybe a label on the device. If not, plug the device in and post the output of lsusb, that may reveal some info. If you can confirm you have the 3.0 version.. there's info above on getting it to work.

Maybe not a troll, but a script kiddy wannabe.

I'm trying to keep the size of my ignore list down, but it's gone up by one.
