Ubuntu Networking :: Get RealTek RTL8111 Wireless Working On 10.10?
Oct 20, 2010
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've been having problems trying to connect to my home network with my onboard NIC. No solution given on the forum has helped me so far.. I just can't seem to connect to the network and I have no idea how to fix it. My NIC is recognized (lsmod shows r8168 is loaded) but when I choose 'auto ethernet' nothing happens .I hope there is someone that can help me because It's a pain to not have internet access...
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 have an MSI Megabook M662. Can't get my wireless working. I have "enabled" checked, but can't view any connections. I don't have wireless at home, I'm trying to make this work for free connections at the library, etc. From the Help Menu troubleshooting I tried:
This reports Disabled, and the advice is to check that device is on. But I just want to roam for service, I don't have my own wireless at home. I thought I might need to use ndiswrapper but I cannot locate a driver for this card info:
I am running a mail server and my POP3 clients have started complaining of slow speeds, about 10 days back. This prompted me to take remedial action on many fronts, finally I decided to look at the link itself.Attempts to force the NIC into full duplex mode using ethtool have failed. The command runs and throws me back to the prompt, but the NIC remains in half duplex mode.
Command that I have tried: ethtool -s eth1 speed 100 duplex full autoneg on modprobe -l r816*:
The device it's properly recognized and iwlist scan even list the networks, but the "activate wifi network" on the network manager on right-top of the screen it's grey and therefore cannot be activated. This seems to be the problem ( rfkill list ouput ):Quote:

This week I picked up a Dell Studio Hybrid and installed CentOS on it. I originally used 5.0 since I already had the DVD and the network card wasn't recognized at all (lspci recognized it but the card didn't show up in system-config-network). I then downloaded the 5.2 DVD and installed that. The network card then showed up in system-config-network but it still didn't work. If DHCP is enabled it tells me that no link is present, and if I manually configure it, I still can't ping the router. lspci reports the following about the network card:
Terry Polzin on the Fedora list today posted a request for help with getting a Realtek 8188S(U) working. I replied saying that I had a similar device and shared my experiences.
I told him that there is a driver in staging which supports the device, but that Fedora only ships quality working drivers by default, so no staging drivers are included. It's easy enough to get them though, just add the RPMFusion Free repository and install their kmod-staging package which (as the name might give away) includes the staging drivers for the current kernel.
Once you have that installed, the r8192s_usb module can be loaded, but the device still needs external (presumably proprietary) firmware to work. Fortunately, although the driver available from Realtek does not include it, it was included on the disk, and is also available in the Billion driver from their website. So, once you have put the firmware in the right place, the device just works.
Here are the steps to get it working (you will need to have RPMFusion enabled, and run these as root).
The main downside here (apart from the obvious) is that you will be relying on RPMFusion to build an updated kmod-staging version when you get a Fedora kernel update. Sometimes this might not happen before you get your kernel, so when you reboot, you lose your wireless (because there's no driver). If so, boot to your older kernel for a while, or build the driver yourself, or create an akmod instead of kmod.

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?
I am brand new to ubuntu (I installed it about 2 hours ago on my new PC). Everything so far has seemed really easy and straight-forward, but I am having problems trying to connect to my wireless network.
I have a Realtek 8185 wireless card, and have the disk with the inf file on it. I installed ndisgtk but when I pointed it to the inf file, I got an "error while installing" message, then it showed up in the list of currently installed drivers in ndisgtk but as an invalid driver. I'm not really sure what I'm doing wrong.
I actually have another wireless card in my old PC (a belkin of some sort) - would I be better off using that? I'm using an ethernet cable at the moment and it works absolutely fine, I just plugged it in and off I went.
I have tried ndiswrapper using 32 bit and 64 bit winxp drivers and the 32 bit driver just doesn't work period (as expected.) The 64 bit driver locked the system up completely and I ended up reinstalling ubunto. I have now reinstalled and updated and upgraded ubunto 10 times in the last 3 days of trying to get this to work and need some external!
using Code: lshw -C network
I do see my network card and driver.
Where I am at currently: I have a fresh install of ubunto 10.04 with it upgraded and updated. I do not have ndiswrapper gtk installed and I have not downloaded any drivers for the wireless card.
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.
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 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 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

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'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 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.
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.
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:
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.
