hey,
my lenovo y50 has a realtek pci wireless adapter.
I've already compiled the kernel with the drivers and installed the necessary firmware.
Unfortunately, when starting with wpa_supplicant it does only seem to get an IPv6 address and I do not have any access to the Internet.
It also seems that it is not recognized as wlan interface since it does not support any operation by iwconfig.

Please use [code] and not [quote] tags for posting your log messages.

About iwconfig, it does not work with modern drivers, unless you enable the legacy wireless extensions in your kernel (CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT). Use iw instead.

For your wpa_supplicant line, -Dnl80211 should be the only option. Do not set -Dwext. Also remove the line config_wlp8s0="dhcp", because dhcp is already the default.
