This is an alternative driver for various Realtek RTL8XXX
parts written to utilize the Linux mac80211 stack.
The driver is known to work with a number of RTL8723AU,
RL8188CU, RTL8188RU, RTL8191CU, RTL8192CU, RTL8723BU, RTL8192EU,
RTL8188FU, RTL8188EU, RTL8710BU (aka RTL8188GU), and RTL8192FU
This driver is under development and has a limited feature
set. In particular it does not yet support 40MHz channels
and power management. However it should have a smaller
memory footprint than the vendor drivers and benefits
from the in kernel mac80211 stack.
It can coexist with drivers from drivers/staging/rtl8723au,
drivers/staging/rtl8192u, and drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi,
but you will need to control which module you wish to load.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will
be called rtl8xxxu. If unsure, say N.
bool "Include support for untested Realtek 8xxx USB devices (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on RTL8XXXU
This option enables detection of Realtek 8723/8188/8191/8192 WiFi
USB devices which have not been tested directly by the driver
author or reported to be working by third parties.
