Ubuntu Networking :: Realtek Usb Wireless Adapter?
Jan 14, 2011
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0bda:8171 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter this adapter shows up in network manager when connected to computer but doesn't detect network and cant connect to any network I have setup in nm, the adapter works fine in windows and it's supposed to work in linux or do I have to install drivers?
Just made the jump to Ubuntu, and until this install I considered myself very tech savvy. Now not so much! Built my new desktop, loaded Ubuntu 64 bit no problem. But I'm having a terrible time figuring out how to load the native driver for my realtek wireless adapter. I successfully un-tarred the file, and used the terminal to run the make command by using cd command to navigate to the file. It returned a wall of text, and in my mind looked to work. Next I go to run "./clean" in the same file location in the terminal and it returns:
"ERROR: Module r8192s_usb does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_rsl does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_ccmp does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep does not exist in /proc/modules ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt does not exist in /proc/modules
Not completely sure if this is an issue, I try moving to the next step of instructions issuing the command "insmod 8712u.ko" in the terminal same file location and get the error message insmod: error inserting '8712u.ko': -1 Operation not permitted I've tried running "sudo insmod 8712u.ko" from both that file directory, and from my home file directory. My guess is I'm missing a step or need to be typing these commands in a different file directory in the terminal.
I am currently running openSUSE 11.4 on my Toshiba A505 laptop. I'm not certain about the exact model number of the wireless adapter but I believe it's made by Realtek. It does not show up in my list of network connections in YaST so I assume I'll need a driver for it.
So I bought a new wireless pci-e adapter today that has a realtek 8192CE chipset. I checked before I bought it and it is supported in the kernel since 2.6.38. Just to be safe I used the kernel-huge-2.6.39-rc4 config file from testing just to get it to work. All the kernel modules are loaded correctly and it is recognized by iwconfig, however wicd acts as if there is no wireless card in the system. I checked dmesg and saw this error. rtl8192cu:loading firmware file rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin rtl8192cu:firmware loading failed
So I googled around and didn't find much except for somethings about needing firmware. I did make firmware_install but for some reason there is no rtlwifi/rtl8192cfw.bin file. As a test I found an RPM that had the bin file I needed. I converted it to a tgz and ran explodepkg on it to extract the one file I needed. I made a directory /lib/firmware/rtlwifi and dropped the .bin file in and wicd immediately found my networks. So I guess it is a missing firmware issue, however I am currently not able to obtain and ip address. Why did the kernel not build the firmware I need, or is that something I have to download and build separately?
Ubuntu 10.10 - the Maverick Meerkat � (Installed .iso from cd)The router has a password that I'm not sure if is wep or wpa.When I manually put in the address, netmask,gateway, dns,domain my Realtek usb adapter is connecting to the router but is not receiving packets.I got the driver installed with ndiswrapper.I'm trying to figure out wpa_supplicant
just swapping all my computers over to linux as it far far better than anything i've used before. Have the above driver as identified in lsusb.[URL].. Downloaded the linux driver but dont know what to do from here. Tried doing it the windows inf file way but that didnt work. Or more like i couldnt get it working.
(For the record, I have already read the other threads. Either they don't work for me or are too difficult.) My laptop is an Acer TravelMate 250. I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 (2.6.35-28 generic i686) after erasing Windows 7. At first, the usb wireless adapter worked. Then, I restarted the PC because of some updates and it didn't work anymore. In "edit connections" I find "Auto SpeedTouch8350DB" which is the wireless connection (on my sis's computer it works). When it tries to connect, I'm asked the password but it doesn't work.
I've got Fedora 14 (220.127.116.11-90.fc14.i686.PAE) installed and i'm trying to use hostapd with my Realtek RTL8191S USB WLAN Adapter, but can't get it to work. The driver i'm using is : rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 601.tar.gz
I have Ubuntu 10.04 (32 bits) and a wireless usb adaptor Alfa Network AWUS036H with Chipset Realtek 8187L. After a few minutes connected, the adaptor disconnects and I can't reconnect again. I search this forum but I'm not sure about what to do. Do I need to get and install another driver? I need to use the windows driver?
I`ve got a dual boot of win 7 and ubuntu 10.04. After I put the system to sleep in win7, it was unable to start the ethternet adapter back (Now after system boot, the lights around the ethernet port blink for a few times and then turn off. This repeats in a while). Now it is disabled in ubuntu too. Is there any way to start it again? It is a Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller.
I recently reformatted and dual partitioned to both Windows 7 as well as ubuntu 10.10. Loading works fine and Windows 7 is 100% operational. I cannot seem to get my wireless network adapter to be read by Ubuntus 'Windows Wireless Drivers' gui. Here are the steps that I have done THUS far, to make sure that we are all on the right path. Before I go any further, my wireless network adapter is an old school WUSB11 Linksys Wireless Network Adapter (running version 2.6).
1) Downloaded and installed "ndiswrapper" from ubuntu's main website. I downloaded the common, utils and ndisgtk files and installed them accordingly. 2) I extracted these three files to the desktop of Ubuntu and accessed the terminal page. 3) From terminal I typed "cd Desktop" to change the directory to the desktop. 4) Next, I typed in "Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.deb Sudo dpkg -i ndisgtk_0.8.5-1_i386.deb" 5) This installed Windows Wireless Drivers gui successfully and I can access it. 6) I have downloaded the driver files for the adapter from the cisco website and searched them for the required files needed. 7) After extracting the .INF file from the "Drivers" directory named "NETUSB.SYS" (I wasn't sure if the other associated files within the same folder needed to be present together with NETUSB so I moved everything to the desktop) I typed in "sudo ndiswrapper -i NETUSB.inf". After accessing the Windows Wireless Drivers gui I have noticed that the 'netusb' driver is present yet under it, the system states "Hardware present: No". This leads me to believe that maybe I installed incorrectly or my "fireware?" is not present? I was reading through the installation guide posted on the ubuntu website that in addition to the .INF file we also need the BIN file(s)? and SYS file(s)?.. The folder with the drivers for my adapter contains a BIN file but it is not within the "Drivers" section of the folder. 9) Upon mousing over the network Icon naturally my hardware is still not present. 10) From what I gather after the system finds the hardware I am to write into the terminal
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 (natty-64 bit) and my wireless PCI card is not being recognised by default. Previously, when I upgraded to 10.10 I had to go to the Realtek website, download the driver for RTL8185 and install it (following instructions in the readme file) to get my wireless card recognised and working properly. This time around, that approach doesn't seem to work. When I try to install it using "make" I get the following error:
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic-pae/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [all] Error 2
Im not able to establish a Wireless Internet connection in Ubuntu 10.04.
Ive tried these steps:
1. Wireless Internet did not show via the Network-icon. Only the 2 LAN-gates where shown
2. I installed the Windows Driver (net8185.inf) via ndisgtk package
3. After restarting the computer, 2 LAN-gates and 1 WLAN where listed via the Network-icon
4. Normally WLAN should automatically start scanning for available networks, but that didnt happen
5. When I tried to connect to my own network, the computer tries to connect for 1 minute and than stops because no connection could be established
6. A wired Internet-connection does not give any problems
Details: - I first had Ubuntu 9.10 but I wasnt able to make a WLAN connection either. I followed the same steps. After that I upgraded to 10.04 - iwconfig in Terminal gives an IP-address which consists of 12 identical characters. - lspci in Terminal shows these data: 01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5787M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
- How to create an Internet connection via my WLAN-card?
- How to install the option to search for available networks automatically?
I recently purchased two MSI Windtop AE2220's. One for my home which uses a router with WPA2 protection and one for my office where I use WEP encryption.
The Realtek internal wireless card will not connect to a WEP router if you are running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04. I have exhausted all suggestions on this site and all drivers found at Realtek's site.
I have been using Ubuntu since Hardy Heron, but sadly, painfully, I have had to install Windows 7 on my office machine until I find a wireless card compatible with the MSI Windtop AE2220, Lucid and WEP.
The Realtek RTL8111 wireless does not work in Mint 10 or Ubuntu 10.10. Works perfectly in Mint 9 and Ubuntu 10.04. No proprietary driver necessary. Has anyone managed to get it working in Ubuntu 10.10? : You can click the one you want to connect to and enter your security key. I just use WEP because it's easy. I enter the key and the system just tries to connect until it times out. You can repeat this process indefinitely. Wired works fine but after any available updates are installed, still no wireless capability.
I was able to successfully install the drivers on the generic kernel, but I seem to be having a problem getting it done on the real time kernel I downloaded via the Ubuntu Software Center. Here's what shows up when I type in 'make' at the command line:
/driver/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625$ make make ARCH=i386 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/2.6.31-11-rt/build M=/home/marcoharder/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625/driver/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 625 modules
I have a Toshiba Satellite L655-S5061 laptop and dual-boot Windows 7 and Kubuntu Lucid Lynx. Windows detects and connects to the wireless network just fine, but in Kubuntu it will detect the network but can't connect to it. Sometimes Network Manager will say it's connected, but Konqueror can't load any websites. Plugging in an ethernet cable doesn't give me access to the internet, either.
I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless USB Network Adapter Model # F6D4050 v2. The drivers are for windows but the windows wireless drivers app doesnt work. I see a tutorial for a linksys that appears to have the same chipset, but I am not sure if any of the steps need to be modified, also my kernel is a bit different. Here is my kernel:
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
I would hope that the title gives my problem away, but my wireless card is not detecting networks. I'm a total new guy to the Linux world, so please be patient with me. I currently have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on a stock Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965.
I have a Toshiba Satellite series laptop, i get ubuntu on it, all works well but there's a problem, my wireless card doesn't work, it doesn't show me the aviable wireless network, my Wireless Card is an Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) but it works in windows. I used Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS. When i run these codes that's what it shows:
I am trying to install EDUP 802.11n Wireless USB Install (RTL8188SU) on my recently installed ubuntu platform and I need a driver for it. I downloaded the one from the Realtec website and I got a bunch of files that I have no idea what to do with them. (h[URL]... I am compleatly new at Linux and I have no idea how to install anything. I am pretty nifty with Windows but this is my first time trying Ubuntu and Linux. So can I have some step by step guide to install this. I am good at following clear instructions correctly.
Aditional Info: I tired the hardware thing already or whatever its called and only NVIDIA drivers are there and my USB is not recornized because it needs a driver.
Running Linux mint 10 After the installation the wireless connection worked but it was very weak and intermittent. The icon would show 1 bar or none. iwconfig showed the rate at 1Mb/s. The same card worked fine in windows and on a 32bit version of linux. Installed new driver from realtek. Now the iwconfig readings look good and the icons shows 2 and sometimes 3 bars. But it will not connect at all! I even turned off all security on my router but it would not connect.
Out of all the Linux I have tried, this is the only one which will hibernate and startup again properly. But it has no drivers for the rtl2860 wifi adapter. I am thinking of using NDIS wrapper, but it may stop hibernation working. I see a guide which I am going to try to follow, but has anyone out there got this adapter working and hibernation still works?
this isnt happening on ubuntu but I think this is more or less a kernel problem that could happen with any flavor. After a new install off of a live cd my wireless card is not picking up any signals...i was able to use wireless while using the live cd but now after it has been isntalled to the hard drive it is not working. even tried in terminal to manually look (iwlist wlan0 scan) but it isnt picking up the signal
The card is recognized by Ubuntu 9.10 and I have it in the network manager. I followed one tutorial about creating an ad-hoc network and all looked good, until I actually wanted to connect (or to be more precise, my machine is a host for other computers). The wireless icon just loops endlessly, without connecting and eventually I get "Wireless network - disconnected" message.
So, the main issue here is - connecting! I just can't. Also if you know/have some good tutorial for ad-hoc,
Code: ivan@ivan-desktop:~$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions. wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"internat3"
I am having issues with wifi on my Lenovo X220. What has occurred is that the network applet in the notification bar no longer shows me any wireless network options. When I click on the applet, the drop down shows me: Wired network: disconnected (greyed out), VPN connections, Enable networking (checked), Connection information (greyed out), and Edit connections. Missing is Wireless connections. This occurred "out of the blue" in the middle of using the computer (i.e. NOT just after a reboot or new driver installation, etc.)
I have noted that:
1. Wired ethernet works just fine.
2. Wireless (wifi) works when I boot into Windows 7 or into a fresh Ubuntu USB Start up disk (implying that this is a software issue, not hardware).
3. The hardware led for wifi is OFF (whereas the Bluetooth light is on.) In Windows or using a fresh ubuntu from USB, this light turns on normally.
This may be irrelevant, but the issue started yesterday when I noticed that the trackpoint scrolling that I had enabled using gpointing-device-settings was not working. I ran that app and checked the settings, which were normal. I then reset the computer, and found the trackpoint was working just fine, but I had no wifi. A few resets later, the problem was not solved.
I found a few fixes which I tried to use, to no sucess. updating drivers, turning router on/off, turning wireless switch on/off, various other fixes from ubuntuforums. tried to upgrade to Natty Narwhale to see if the problem worked it's way out, to no avail. I've spent two days trying for this. Anyone out there willing to point me in the right direction or hold my hand?
I have just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my brother's Toshiba Satellite Pro L500 and have spent all day trying to get the wireless to work.
the laptop does not have a physical wifi-switch (it should switch on-off with Fn+F8, which doesn't work), the drivers seem to be installed, but I cannot 'enable wireless', and I found that it is 'Hard blocked':
sudo rfkill list all :
0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes but 'rfkill unblock all' does nothing.
I've been using a RealTek 8190 PCI wireless card on my desktop in Ubuntu 10.04. The net819xp driver worked fine in ndiswrapper. Then my housemates got a new router and switched our wireless SSID & password. In network manager, I can see the SSIDs, but when I try to connect to our SSID, it continues trying to connect but never does connect. Something related to the router change and router firmware upgrade created this problem and i'm sure i need to fix it on my computer. All my windows7 flatmates are connecting with no problem. Right now I'm using my laptop, so i can't copy & paste results from terminal commands,
I'm using Kubuntu 10.04.2 LTS on a Bangho laptop. Kernel 2.6.32-28-generic i686. My card is: Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8187B Wireless 802.11g 54Mbps Network Adapter iwconfig wlan0 gives me:
Code: wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"Default_WLAN" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.442 GHz Access Point: 00:06:4F:8D:B9:AF Bit Rate=1 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry long limit:7 RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
Usually when this happens, for 10 or 20 seconds it appears to be connected (i.e. the heart symbol is there) but I can't ping google or my router, then it "realizes" it's disconnected. It takes one or two attempts to reconnect successfully by pressing the "active" button. Meanwhile throughout the disconnections and re-connections the signal is very strong (98%).
I had the same problem with my old access point, at first I thought it was the cheap/old hardware, so now I bought an "ENCORE ENDSL-A2+WIGX2 | ADSL 2+ Modem with 4 Port Wireless Router". The problem persists only with a stronger signal.
