Realtek wifi can be "real" problematic. Vendor largely ignores Linux.

For about $12-25 or abouts (on Amazon, Egghead, etc.), it's possible to get a usb wireless adapter that is Linux friendly.

Panda makes several dongles and usb-wifi sticks that work out of the box:

hello i have manage to solve it.

I installed a driver from https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new/ it worked but the signal was weak so then i fixed by folowing this guide in the wiki https://github.com/lwfinger/rtlwifi_new ... -signal%3F

Now its working without issue.
