Review of Linux Compatibility
The Asus USB-N10 Nano (easily mixed up with the Asus USB-N10 without the addition “Nano”) has the USB ID 0b05:17ba
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0b05:17ba ASUSTek Computer, Inc.
and bases on the Realtek RTL8188CUS chipset.
In principle, this chipsetz is supported by the 8192cu kernel module. However, the USB ID of the stick is not known to this driver and therefore the driver is not loaded automatically.. This can be corrected by the command:
echo 'install 8192cu modprobe --ignore-install 8192cu ; /bin/echo "0b05 17ba" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rtl8192cu/new_id' | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/8192cu.conf
Alternatively, a modified driver can be downloaded from GitHub, which already includes the USB ID. Under Ubuntu the driver can be downloaded and installed by
sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-$(uname -r) linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms git git clone https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes.git sudo dkms add ./rtl8192cu-fixes sudo dkms install 8192cu/1.9
