Hi, Ive bought chip and small (whats important - it can be kept in the USB jack all the time without thee risk of breaking out) 80211n adapter: USB ID 7392:7811Edimax Technology Co., Ltd EW-7811Un 802.11n Wireless Adapter [Realtek RTL8188CUS].

Unfortunately it doesnt work with the standard driver included in kernel 3.1.0 and 3.1.1.

The card is recognized, but iwlist wlan0 scan returns nothing, and the card is not able to associate with the AP.

Fortunately I have found the http://www.r-statistics.com/2011/11/edimax-ew-7811un-usb-wireless-connecting-to-a-network-on-ubuntu-11-10/ which allowed me to solve the problem: 1. I downloaded the latest source (at time of this writing: ftp://WebUser:AxPL9s3k@95.130.192.218/cn/wlan/RTL819xCU_USB_linux_v3.3.0_2971.zip found on http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx) 2. I have unpacked it, and unpacked the driver sources: rtl8188C_8192C_819~71.20111128.tar.gz in separate directory 3. In the previous version I had to modify sources as described in the quoted post, replacing |include <linux/smp_lock.h> with #include <linux/smp.h> in include/rtw_io.h and in ||include/osdep_service.h .

This step however is not needed in the newest version! 4. I compiled the driver with fakeroot make in driver sources directory (of course I had to install the header files matching my kernel version) 5. As root Ive copied the resulting driver 8192cu.ko to the /lib/modules/3.1.0-1-686-pae/kernel/drivers/misc directory, and I have disabled the original driver in /lib/modules/3.1.0-1-686-pae/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu directory, by renaming the rtl8192cu.ko file to rtl8192cu.ko.deleted (you should replace the ||3.1.0-1-686-pae with your kernel version).| | 6. As root Ive run the depmod -a 7. As root Ive run update-initramfs -k all -u After reboot the card started to work perfectly...

Perhaps you could file a bug report against it? NOTE: has worked fine for others and I.
