General :: Installing Ubuntu With Realtek Network Driver Rtl8168?
Jan 25, 2011
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)
I recently installed realtek sound driver software in my system, but after installing it,the speakers are not working.... I'm using fedora 13(x86_64). i just want to make my system speak,like before.... how to make my speakers work ?
I am using Red Hat 9 having kernel version 2.4.20-8 and am newbie to using linux programming.I have installed PXES thin Client software and using it to generate run time images to be used for booting Thin Clients. The PXES run time image using kernel version .4.32-2pxes.Now I want to integrate new Realtek 8101 Network driver in this PXES image file. I have downloaded the driver source file and compiled the source and when I copy & try use the driver module file (r8101.o) in thin client, it gives the error message that the kernel version is not proper. I am compiling the source file in version 2.4.20-8 & using it in thin client image file which is having version 2.4.32-2pxes.How do I compile the network driver source for different kernel version ? Please help as I don't have much knowledge of compiling modules in linux.
I am having trouble getting a Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller to work on openSuSE 11.3. Most of the data for the problem is in this pastebin of the output of Framp's collectNWData.sh. I have also downloaded drivers for this card as detailed below.
I'm trying to add my Samsung SCX4500W printer to my opensuse 11.2 machine running KDE.From Yast->Printer->Add printerI am able to set the printer up, however there is no driver for my specific network printer. Samsung does provide a linux driver but I have no idea what I'm doing when installing peripherals on linux basically
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.
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.

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.
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.
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 SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted
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.
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: Entering directory `/lib/modules/220.127.116.11-1.2-desktop/build' make: *** 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-18.104.22.168-1.2 (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-22.214.171.124-1.2 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.
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
Today I realized that my newly installed Natty does not recognize the Ethernet port, I used to have it when I was working on the Ubutnu 10.10. The following is the output (only the network related part) of lshw command:
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.

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.
I hope I'm posting in the right forum here, but I'm trying to install a realtek wireless driver and make goes okay, but when I get to make install it says permission denied when trying to create a file in a folder near the end of the process. Is there anyway to fix this? What can I do?

Anyone knows how I can fix this. According this "log" it seems to be that the firmware have been moved/removed?.. [URL]
It is the firmware for the network card, but it works fine....
anyone tried to run wifi-card based on this chip? In coming days I will build myself a proprietary driver for 126.96.36.199 kernel. I mostly aware about patches for wpa_supplicant. Should I use a source for wpa_supplicant from slackware 12.2 distro or a new version? Do you know about any other prerequisities (requirements, dependencies) for building this proprietary driver?
There seems to be some trouble with 8139too not working in a previous post. Has anyone found a solution to this? ubuntu version 2.6.24 (Hardy Heron?). Followed all known possibilities but information is all mostly out of date. module 8139too.ok? does not load. Following makefile on 8139too.c supplied, after altering to suit my version, comes up with 3 pages of errors?. ifconfig shows nothing for eth0like the last person markjuggles i have hit a brick wall here. Am I wasting my time?
I just installed FC14 on an ASUS Eee Pc with Realtek WNIC (RTL8191SE) and I am trying to install the driver for the WNIC which I downloaded from Realtek's website. There is a problem though during the 'make' command and this is the output
what is this 'build' that is looking for? what can I do to fix this?
i use fedora11 and try to use wireless i find driver for chip Realtek RTL8187 but want to know command to install it. i save folder of driver on desktop in folder name rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006has like this
I am using DELL VOSTRO 1510 laptop , it has realtek r8169 ethernet card, i installed RHEL 5 in my laptop , i checked for the driver cd provided by DELL, they given one source rpm and two other rpm for ethernet card, i tried to install them through "rpm -ivh (path)/realtek-r8169 (full name).rpm " but it asking about dependency . i tried it by using yum also but still its not working.
also i tried to create binary rpm through source rpm, but it only generating spec not binary rpm, when i am using " rpmbuilt -ba (spec file) " its showing command not found error. RHEL5 have ethernet driver for realtek-8129 in their list but not for realtek-8169, i checked it in system-config-network window, now what to do, how do i install this rpm , i want to access net through RHEL 5.
I've got a Puppy system running version 4.3.0 that I'm trying to get on the home network. I'm using a D-Link DWA-130 (H/W revision C), which has a Realtek RTL8192U chipset. I got the drivers off of D-Link's website, and they compiled and installed just fine, but when either a) I try to connect to the network, or b) while I'm browsing the web, the system locks up completely. No mouse, no keyboard, no Ctrl-Alt-Bksp to get out of X, nothing.
I'll outline my steps: Install Puppy using a "Full" HDD install (not "Frugal"). Copy the "devx_430.sfs" file (which I got from the Puppy website) from a thumb drive to the "my-documents" folder (although the exact location proabably doesn't matter). Mount it, cd to the mounted directory and execute "cp -a --remove-destination ./* /" and "sync". Copy the kernel source for 188.8.131.52 ("kernel_src-184.108.40.206-patched.sfs4.sfs") to the same directory. Mount it and execute the same commands as before. Copy the folder containing the RTL8192U drivers ("rtl8192u_linux_2.6.0006.1031.2008") to the root directory (i.e. "/"). cd to the folder in the terminal and run "make", "make install".Reboot the machine. Set up networking using the Puppy Internet Connection Wizard. HERE'S WHERE IT SCREWS UP: It connects, but after a while (e.g. just after logging into LQ through it, as a test) it freezes the entire system.
I have to do a hard reboot ("panic button"), then a soft reboot (for some odd reason the usb module won't load after a hard reboot, so the mouse won't work) to get the system working again, only to have it lock up again once it connects to the network.
Are these drivers broken? Outdated? Is there anything I can do to fix this? EDIT: I should add that this only occurs when the adapter is plugged in. If I boot the system with it unplugged, it works fine (probably because it never loads the kernel module).
I just performed a fresh install of Suse 11.4. It worked great except that the network communication would cut in and out intermittently. I managed to solve the problem posting it here for other users and for future suse releases. I will give the hardware I am running, the symptoms and the fix:
Hardware ======= Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H67MA-UD2H-B3 Ethernet controller: Realtek RTL8111E Default module: r8169 (run lsmod to see loaded modules)
1) First make sure that linux kernel source is installed in your system (yast software management)
2) ensure that gcc is installed (yast software management)
3) Download the latest linux driver for RTL8111E from the realtek website The one that I am running is the 8168 driver version 8.024.00
4) unzip the tarball (creates a directory called "r8168-x.xxx.xx")
5) As root run the autorun.sh from inside the newly created "r8168-x.xxx.xx" directory
I've recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 and everything has been working great, except I cannot see ANY wireless networks, Wired works fine, and while on Windows 7 I can connect fine.lspci -v gives me a wall of text, the end is:

I was curious as to if there was a way to install a 32bit driver on a 64bit system. I have a dell v515w printer and the only driver they provide for it is a 32bit driver. I was wandering if anyone may know of a way to install it or if anyone knows of any other available drivers. I have searched everywhere for i dont know how long and came up with nothing i have tried installing the 32bit libraries and it didnt help.. and going back a 32bit system is out of the question due to ubuntu not wanting to load.. i think it has something to due with my hard drive being to large... but im using ubuntu 10.10 maverick 64bit...
