General :: Installing Ubuntu With Realtek Network Driver Rtl8168?

I have been having trouble with the install of Ubunto in general. First problem is that my realtek network drivers rtl8168 are giving me some problems. I have followed advice from other threads for disactivating the NIC and disconnecting the power for 10seconds. This works in that Ubunto can recognize the hardware (hardware active), but it says it is not in use. Furthermore, I try to define the IP address manually and it does not allow me to press apply. Therefore I cannot connect to the internet.

I though I would try a fresh install of the latest Ubuntu. I did not have the internet connected (due to drivers). After the partitioning section (I partitioned over Ubunto 9.10), on the screen where it says select Username, computer name etc. some files were loaded, and at the end it says �ready when you are�but I was not able to move forward. I don�t now why. Ultimately I reboot the computer Now I get this message upon booting (I am still booting from USB)

GRUB Loading
error: unknown filesystem
grub rescue

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Home Network Is Not Recognized By Network Card (RealTek RTL8190 Mini PCI)
my wireless home network is not recognized by my network card (RealTek RTL8190 mini PCI). The post was as follows: "I am using a new computer with Windows 7 , Athlon quad core 2.60 64 bit, 8GB RAM. Internet conection works fine with ethernet but ubuntu does not see my wireless network. card (RealTek RTL 8190 ID: 10ec:8190). Have searched this forum but unable to come up with a fix. I was looking for windows XP drivers to use Ndiswrapper but could not find a list of .inf files. My network is OK and works perfectly in windows and with my 2 laptops. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Additional info: install was done within Windows using WUBI to a separate partition on my HDD. I am new to this and thouroughly confused as to the procedure for installing the drivers if they are in fact available."

I am very frustrated in that I would like to use Ubuntu 10.04 but it is useless without internet connectability. I am new to linux and do not understand where to get the appropriate drivers or how to install them. I wish someone would answer this post and either give me a clue what to do or just say "give up" and uninstall ubunutu.

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting The RTL8187b Driver From Realtek?
trying to get my little Encore USB wireless adapter to work on several flavors of Linux (Ubuntu 10,10, ElementOS, Xubuntu, and Puppy), I emailed tech support at Realtek. I asked where is the Linux driver for this product? I did this because there were no Linux drivers posted on their site and everyone here (and on Newegg) is jumping though hoops trying to get a working wireless connection with the Encore and similar dongles that use the RT8187b chipset. I didn't expect an answer, but felt better after my little vent. I get an email from Realtek with a driver. Realtek needs to promote Jerry -- a beacon of customer service in the age of the "get lost" school of customer relations. I have attached the driver below. Caveat: I have not yet compiled the driver, so I don't know much more about it than I've said already, although the archive appears to contain the source code.

Ubuntu Networking :: Driver For Realtek RTL8185 On 10.10 Not Working?
when I updated from 10.04 to 10.10 beta, I lost my wireless on my Gateway MX3410 laptop. In 10.04, the wireless Realtek RTL8185 card was auto-detected, worked with the default driver.

So I installed the linux driver version of Realtek RTL8185. Although the driver shows up in the "Additional Drivers" panel under "Administration", the computer is not recognising the driver.

Below is all the specs of the current situation.

OS: Ubuntu maverick (development branch)

Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8185 IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 20)

Networking :: Ubuntu 10.04 Realtek Ethernet Driver Missing
my Ethernet card stopped responding a few days after installing Ralink Wireless Card Driver for Linux. I have tried installing the drivers from Realtek's site, but it fails. I also have tried reinstalling the network manager, and that still didn't help any. I have also tried looking online for any post or blog that could help, but that also turned up nothing. The Computer is a new 2010 / 2011 (bought it on new years eve) HP Pavilion desktop that came with windows preinstalled.

Ubuntu :: Add RealTek ALC880 Driver So The Sound Will Work?
Sound works with Jaunty Jackal. Does not work with Lucid Lynx. It appears that Lucid Lynx will only acknowledge that I have a modem as a sound card. I just want to add my RealTek ALC880 driver so the sound will work. I've made sure that I have audio privileges, I made sure that nothing is muted using alsamixer. I've been looking at threads and documentation for four days just to fix the sound issue and so I can be prepared in case this 'feature' ends up being continued in Maverick Meerkat and when I upgrade I can use M.M. with minimal fuss.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Use RealTek Driver For 8191SE
I printed off the Readme file from RealTec and went though the following procedure. If anyone spots a glaring error could you please advise and I will try and fix. I changed to superuse using : sudo su and entered my password. All good so far.I was already in the directory containing the downloaded RealTec driver. I downloaded RLT8192SE ver 0019 as this was the closest to my hardware version and the latest driver available.

I used the command : make

and then : make install

Both these commands ran ok. However when I rebooted and activated wireless using Fn F10 on the laptop I was still disconnected from WIFI.

I then used : iwconfig wlan0 up

but this resulted in an error (see below)

root@Ubuntu:/home/jon/LDD/Drivers/test# iwconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig: unknown command "up"
root@Ubuntu:/home/jon/LDD/Drivers/test# ifconfig wlan0 up

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Driver For Realtek 8192se ?

Here is what I had to do:

When I do this, it works beautifully, after setting my router to open I may add.

So, as I said it is probably the fastest wireless I have ever experienced, but my problem is this, everytime I switch my laptop on I have to re-install, starting at:

General :: Activate Wireless Network Card Driver And Video Driver?
I just installed Linux Mint 9 as a dual boot install with Win XP. Trying to activate wireless network card driver and video driver. Pops up: "You are not authorized to perform this action".How do I get authorized?

Now every time I boot Win XP, the Internet Explorer menu bar is all blacked out and goofy. If I log out and back in it corrects itself. If I reboot it's blacked out again. Re-installed IE8. Still blacks out.Also Firefox in Win XP crashes expectantly. It has NEVER crashed on me previously.

OpenSUSE Network :: Installing Driver Error - No Rule To Make Target `modules' - Stop
I am relatively new to linux and am running into a problem. I just got a new laptop and need to configure/install it's wireless driver but am getting an error when running "make". The error is: make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/' make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.

I have scoured these forums and know that others have the same issue (when configuring other drivers/programs). I am sorry if this post is redundant. It sounds like the Makefile is pointing to the wrong directory. I am using opensuse 11.4, have make and gcc installed. My kernel is linux- (I just re-installed the desktop kernel to make sure it was up to date). The driver I am trying to install is located here: AUR (en) - rtl8192ce.

Another forum suggests pointing somewhere in the /usr/src/linux- directory instead. Is this correct? Should I be pointing to a folder within this? I am not a programmer but any description about what I am actually putting in this directory and why would be awesome (so I can learn a bit more). Or just helping me solve the problem would be great too.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unstable Realtek 8192 Wireless Driver
I'm having trouble with my Samsung Netbook N220 and its Realtek 8192 wireless card and could use some help with diagnostics. I would like to use the netbook as a server and after a day or so the system stops responding. What I'd like to know:

- What do the "========>ieee80211_parse_info_param(): athros AP is exist" spam messages actually say? Does anyone else have this and stability problems?

- Why is the realtek driver package not working?

I'm running Ubuntu Netbook 10.04/Kernel 2.6.32-24-generic. Initially the card was unable to connect, so I installed the Realtek driver rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0017.0507.2010 which adds a kernel module r8192se_pci.ko. At first my system was hanging during bootup. I then restored /lib/modules/2.6.32-24-generic and now the card is connecting but the system is unstable. The 2.6.32-23-generic kernel, modules listed below, still has modules as installed by the realtek driver and is not working. Below the drivers supplied by ubuntu

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Realtek Semiconductor Device 8192 Driver
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my samsung n150. It has the 8192 device in it. Have installed ndiswrapper, however cannot get the drivers for it. How to fix/where to get the driver from so I can get my wireless card working again.

On lspci:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation N10 Family DMI Bridge
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02) .....

I think the driver may be there, however I just can't 'enable' it. On my laptop there is a blue light saying that wifi is enabled however who knows.
