Networking :: Ethernet Card Realtek 8139 Driver Does Not Install?
Dec 12, 2008
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 Followed all known possibilities but information is all mostly out of date.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?
How to install Realtek 8139 Ethernet driver? I tried downloading from realtek website. there is no driver for Realtek 8139. Although i downloaded the driver for 8168 for Linux, i could not install it after uncompressing the tar file
I have no internet connection. I am running dual boot windows XP and ubuntu. The card works fine in windows, but doesn't work at all in Ubuntu. This is the card I am using Realtek rtl8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet Nic. I am using Ubuntu 8.10, codename intrepid. I hate windows because of the viruses I contract everyday, so I decided to use Ubuntu, but this does no good without networking. so I can get online. What I do now? It is an onboard LAN card, cable is plugged in a green light is on, ubuntu just doesn't recognize it.
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.
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.
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 have a dual boot on my computer - with ubuntu 9.04 jaunty jackalope on one side of the partition, and windows 2000 on the other. I recently bought - and had installed - a new ethernet card: TP-LINK network adapter TF-3239DL. It works perfectly on windows, but not on linux. I understand that the problem is that I need to install the linux driver, which I have available (comes in the CD), but I don't really understand how I am supposed to proceed. The instructions are very unclear to me, and I have relatively little experience.
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 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'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 184.108.40.206 ("kernel_src-220.127.116.11-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).
anyone tried to run wifi-card based on this chip? In coming days I will build myself a proprietary driver for 18.104.22.168 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?
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on a desktop as a dual boot along with Win XP Pro X64 bit. I have a Realtek RTL 8139/810x Ethernet. When I use the lspci in the terminal, it lists the realtek 8139/810 c, and a few others but not the "X". Could this be the reason?
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my PC last weekend. Other than the fact I had no sound (that's another story...), everything went fine. I then got prompted to install nvidia graphic drivers. Since I installed them and rebooted, i cannot get acces to my ethernet connection. I tried the solutions listed here, but none worked. Also, when i boot on my windows OS, the Internet is working properly. I tried tonight re-installing Ubuntu 10.04. I thought if the graphic caused problem, maybe a new blank installation would just do it.
I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 uname -r 2.6.28-11-generic
Checked cable/network with 386Box running Ubuntu 8.04 all OK. Could not get Realtek 8168 on mother board to work on Gigabyte H55M-S2H motherboard. I tried to install r8168 driver but no luck ... so I bought another Linux compatible card which turned out to be a RTL8139c (eth1) and the driver I am using on this is card is 8139too.
My preference would be to get the motherboard ethernet working but perhaps the card may be easier to get working. Anyway after searching the net for ideas and trying different things I've just about given up. I have reinstalled Ubuntu today so eth0 is back to using the r8169 driver. I'm no expert so my attempts at following other recipies have so far failed. From what I have read the 8139too driver should have worked with the RTL8139C chip so I have run out of ideas. I must be doing something wrong.
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?
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.
lspci: Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8185 IEEE 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 20) lsusb: Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
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 have downloaded the driver installed it, and it works fine. But i can't get to turn it off. I do have the ability to unload the driver's kernel modules and the sysyem does not see my card after that. That's ok, but i'm thinking it still uses my battery power. The wifi led is always on no matter what i do. The fn+<wifi key> doesn't to anything.
