Ubuntu Networking :: Rosewill RNX-G1W USB Wireless Card (RTL8187L)?

Apr 23, 2010

I posted this in Absolute Beginner Talk because I thought that this place might be too technical for me, but I didn't get much of a response there. Does anyone know where I can find a decent driver for this USB wireless card? It uses the RTL8187L chipset for Ubuntu 9.10?

I can connect to my wi-fi network, but I can only seem to download any data for 10 seconds to a minute after connecting. After this it still says that it is connected but updates and web browsing do not work. The connection works fine on my windows partition with the drivers that came with the device. I found this, old thread about the issue but I frankly have no idea what these people are talking about:[URL].. There do appear to be linux drivers on the CD that came with the device but I don't understand how to install them and the above thread seems to suggest that I shouldnt bother trying...

There is a folder titled Linux on the driver CD which contains two folders, a .zip of each of them is attached if it helps. I also found this and tried it will a lot of errors and confusing output.

Slackware :: Realtek RTL8187L Wireless Config And A Different RadioPower.sh?

Feb 8, 2010

Well, at first I need to tell that after having big problems (audio, video, modem, network,...) with my venture into slack world at about 7 years ago, I thought that even with my insistence it would be hard to get used with it.
Around the middle of December last year I decided to try again and again I had face some problems (now with fdisk and GPT support in a 64 bit machine).

But now, at about a month after that, I need to say that having passed those initial problems with installation, not only I manage to learn a lot about linux in general (dependencies, rc. editing, permissions, groups...) as I am amazing to what Slackware became.
From 3D graphics acceleration in KDE (with an easy config for my video card, something I thought it would be impossible and that makes it by far better looking than any Windows Desktop fancy try), to great programs and suites integration like Amarok, OpenOffice, Ktorrent, THE firefox, and so many others all allied with the full control of the system (no automatic updates, no mysterious packages UNLESS I really allow it) not to tell g++, python and so on.

However, besides a raid 0 non readable partition, I am having a persistent problem with my wireless that always mix my pppoe connection when I try to config it via rc.inet1 (or rc.wireless ...).To better explain my situation I have a computer with Asus P5k-e/Wifi-AP with came with an integrated wireless device (Realtek RTL8187L).Also, the way I work out to connect to the internet was through (an ethernet) pppoe connection setup using pppoe-setup.Right now it is working like a charm after pppoe-start and stop commands.

At about a month, when i was starting my first steps to config my machine, I tried to follow [URL] three times, and in two of those I manage to start my wireless, but in all it mixed up with my pppoe connection and since either pppoe-config as pppoe-setup didn't work after that (even after backup the files) I had to reinstall the whole system. (Yes, I know that probably there is an workaround easier via shell or file editing, but since every time I need to restart in the Windows, search for solution on internet, print those I find, restart, and try in slackware again, I decided that reinstalling was the fast solution for me at that time.)Now, I am a bit more confident with my knowledge of the linux and decided to try to setup wireless again.

After an extensive search in the forum, I found out two major solutions: One pointing to alienwiki (with I really think is the best approach besides my previous experience) and other pointing to the proper realtek driver at [URL]As i am yet trying to decide which method use, I download the driver and it came with an strange file (RadioPower.sh) that are called by wlan0up. Below are both files:



SYSTEM=`uname -r|cut -d. -f1,2`
if [ $SYSTEM = 2.4 ]
cd ieee80211

Ubuntu Networking :: RTL8187L Updated Driver For Kernel 2.6.32/2.6.31 For ALFA AWUS036H

Jan 5, 2010

i have ALFA AWUS036H 500mw wireless card which uses RTL8187L chipset. Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 come with preloaded rtl8187 driver but they DO NOT work for internet surfing. However they do work with aircrack suit for injecting etc. Specific problem is: They only work with really close ranged AP, anything far and you will have random disconnects or inability to connect. So basically its unstable compared to patched driver.

To get this alfa card working for internet access, the only way currently is to use any LInux distro with Kernel 2.6.30 and lower. Starting from Kernel 2.6.31 they have made some changes to net api structure which wont let you patch the driver with the patch available at aircrack website which is normally used to make this driver suitable for internet browsing. Refer to this thread for more info: [URL]... I am currently using backtrack 4 pre final but i was going to install kubuntu 9.04 till i recieved an email from realtek with a new driver that compiles in kernel 2.6.31. I tested it on Kubuntu 9.10 and it compiled fine but i could not make it run. Under NetworkManagement for Kubutnu, the problem is that it keeps asking for WEP key and gives me the message 'wlan4 failed to connect' instantly after i enter the key, so its possible that its not compatible with NetworkManagement. I havent tried it with wicd yet, it may work........

Ubuntu Networking :: Realtek (RTL8187L) USB Not Setting Up Routes, Causing DHCP Step To Fail?

May 1, 2010

I bought an RTL8187L USB wireless adapter, and have had trouble getting it to work. I have managed to get it to work via manually configuringtime, but lost that configuration, and now it is once again not workingThe root issue appears to be (if I'm understanding correctly what I'm seeing) that when I connect, routes don't get setup properly, so when network manager (or WICD, which I've also tried) get to the DHCP step, my wireless router can't be reached by dhclient.

This is on Ubuntu 9.10, and I'm using the updated driver from realtek.com, btw, though the in-kernel driver was exhibiting the same behavior.So, two questions:- Is anyone familiar with this problem, and is there a fix available?- I believe I can work around it by setting up routes manually (e.g. with a post-connect script in WICD), but after staring at the "route" manpage, I'm not 100% sure of the commands. My router (a FIOS MI424WR) is my DHCP server, and is at, and route -n on a working PC (wired connection) gives:

dave@MinasTirith:~$ route -n

Fedora Networking :: 14 Can't Connect To SpeedTouch 585 - Either Wireless Broadcom Card Or The Wired Ethernet Card

Dec 4, 2010

Just installed Fedora 14 from the Live CD i686 on my Dell Inspiron 1521. I can't connect to the SpeedTouch 585 on either wireless broadcom card or the wired Ethernet card.

I can connect to it from the same Laptop on the Vista which is on dual boot on the same laptop.

Further confusing is that I ran Fedora 14 and connected to another SpeedTouch today.

Already checked the Channel on the wireless nic and it's on the same one as the SpeedTouch.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card - WEP Encryption For Wireless Router Not Allow Me To Connect

May 5, 2011

wlan0 Authentication capabilities :


Those are my authentication capabilities, obviously. I am using a WEP encryption for my wireless router and according to this, it will not allow me to connect. Is there anyway to allow that? The wireless card works just fine in Windows, even on the same network encryption type. Using a Intel Wireless/Pro 4965 ag. Note* this is my mother's router and whatnot. She won't change it the encryption type.

Ubuntu Networking :: Tenda W322P Wireless Card Crashing Wireless Router On Connect

Jun 30, 2011

I installed a Tenda W322P wireless card in my dual-boot PC running both Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.04. The card worked straight out of the box on XP, but does not function correctly under Ubuntu. My apologies for any missing/irrelevant information, I am having to post this from the Windows boot so the Ubuntu settings are not directly available at the same time as internet access.I followed the process detailed here htURL...to install and configure the driver (I believe from reading other sites that this card is the Ralink RT3062 chipset), blacklisted the original RT2860 driver that was in use (couldn't even get the card to scan for wireless networks with the default driver) and restarted the interface.

Since then, sudo iwlist scan can find my wireless router but when I attempt to connect to it, it seems to enter a loop of requesting the WEP key then pausing for a while before re-requesting the key. I know I have the key value correct because it is copied and pasted from the same text file I used to copy and paste into the passkey field on the Windows boot. Attempting to connect to the router using Ubuntu also has the rather unfortunate side-effect of crashing the wireless router, killing off all other device connections until the router has been reset.

Ubuntu Networking :: Networking Widget Fails To Enable Wireless Card / Fix It?

Apr 30, 2011

I just upgraded to natty last night, and everything is working fine except for the network manager. I can enable and configure the wireless card via bash, but the network manager widget will not manage the wireless card.

When I first boot up, the "Enable wireless" check box is greyed out. After I enable the card via the terminal, the "Enable wireless" check box becomes ungreyed, but every time I click it, it instantly unchecks itself. I feel like Currly from the Three Stoogies. Check, uncheck, Check, uncheck.. "Slaps face repeatedly."

Ubuntu Networking :: Need PCI Wireless Card

I want to buy a wifi card that will, hopefully, be rock stable under my kubuntu 10.04 64 bit. Currently I have TP-Link Atheros card and stability in Linux is horrible. Please DO NOT give me links to compatibility list. Just suggest a network card that is most likely to be stable with least manual tuning effort required.

Ubuntu Networking :: Getting To Recognize Wireless Card?

Jan 7, 2010

Moving this to new topic, since it's no longer under wireless connectivity issues. [Noob Warning] I was having trouble getting Ubuntu to recognize my wireless card, as I have changed from the 3965 that came in my computer to the 4965, which added increased range and G band. Anyway, I read one of the threads on here, and this was the advice given:

I'm totally sick of my WiFi Card, a Realtek 8187 connected by miniPCIe, althought internally designed as USB, I've tried all there is, and I've decided to change it. Which brand do you guys recommend? In my experience, I want to avoid Realtek and Atheros, but which brand offer the best "out-of-the-box" experience, and less overall issues? Intel, Broadcomm, maybe another Atheros or Realtek model, or whatever you guys think it's the best choice

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Card Just Seems To Be Dead?

May 15, 2010

I am in need of some help trying to get my wireless working. I have a compaq presario f557us and my wireless card just seems to be dead. I got this laptop a few years ago and I tried installing ubuntu 7.04. The wireless part did not work out of the box (it took a lot of tinkering but finally got it working by using ndiswrapper). Later I did an OS reinstall but tried ubuntu 8.10 this time and the card was recognized with no problems, I just needed to use the proprietary drivers that ubuntu recommended. Finally I decided to give 10.04 a try. I don't know if doing an "apt-get upgrade" would've been fine but it's too late for that now; I did a fresh install and the wireless part seems dead.

I already tried installing ndiswrapper as I did before:
$ ndiswrapper -l
bcmwl5 : driver installed
later I tried the fwcutter way:
$ bcm43xx-fwcutter -i bcmwl5.sys
Sorry, the input file is either wrong or not supported by fwcutter. I can't find the MD5sum b89bcf0a25aeb3b47030ac83287f894a
