That was it!!! Thank you! Wow! I have been on this for weeks now! My debugging output displays as follows:
id: 8129 hpon: Render How? clk: 0 rf_board_option: 0 rf_feature_option: 0 rf_bt_setting: 10 Version: 0 customer_id: 0 rf_antenna_option: 2 MAC Address: 40:49:f:a9:b7:61 vid: 10ec did: 8179 svid: 103c smid: 197d Board type: 0 Regulatory: 0 However, your email might change my direction to just extend the rtl8188e code and add the PCI bits. This is my first time hacking the kernel and I hope to contribute back.
