If the lsmod command still does not show the driver, mt7610u_sta, try command

Code: Select all

modinfo /lib/modules/4.1.13-v7+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/mt7610u_sta.ko
and see if there is a line

Code: Select all

alias:          usb:v2357p0105d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*in*
in the output. If not it is possible the driver you downloaded was an old version that did not include your wifi usb ID. You will need to download the file again and install the driver again. I have checked the driver in Dropbox and it does contain your wifi USB ID so I would expect it to work.
MrEngman
Hi there. I'm having a similar issue, but I think the driver on Dropbox has not been updated to contain my USB ID. Here's my info:

Running lsusb produces the following:

Code: Select all

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 2357:0105
Running uname -a produces the following:

Code: Select all

Linux glit 4.1.7+ #817 PREEMPT Sat Sep 19 15:25:36 BST 2015 armv6l GNU/Linux
So I grabbed the "mt7601-4.1.7-817.tar.gz" file from Dropbox.

However, when I run modinfo mt7601Usta.ko, I get the following:

After installing the driver you need to reboot your Pi.

To see if the driver is loaded you need to use command lsmod which lists the modules loaded, not lsusb which lists the USB devices connected to the Pi.

I wasn't sure which to install, so I grabbed both. I suspect I had to install firmware because I'm running Minibian.

Re checking the presence of the module, I have a wlu-1663 dongle and when i checked the module with lsmod there was no reference to any item as displayed in your. In short, pi can see the dongle but has no sw to handle it. How can I make it work?

Post the output of command lsusb so we can see the wifi ID and we should be able to find which driver it uses.

Also post the output of command uname -a so we can see the kernel version you are using.

WiFi driver not working

Sun Jan 03, 2016 9:53 am

Hello!
I'm first time poster, but hopefully this is correct place to ask this question.
Situation: I have a Raspberry Pi A model (no LAN port) and want to connect WiFi module from Eusso. However, I have tried to install the drivers (https://www.dropbox.com/s/wypvz4vymjkkc ... x.zip?dl=1) and found out that by default they are made for Kernel 2.4 or 2.6. So I decided that it is not possible to install it, because Kernel 2.4 or 2.6 seems like never been working on raspberri. I have installed latest Raspbian with kernel 4.smth. But! There are this fix folder in Linux.zip file (dropbox link). I am not expert or intermediate not in Linux, nor the Raspberry.
Solution: Could anyone please help or tutor something? I would be really thankful, because connecting to internet would be huge step. ;)
And here is picture of adapter. It was working excellent on windows 7,8 and even 10:

There may already be a driver for your wifi included in the raspbian image. With the wifi adapter connected to your Pi post the output of commands

Code: Select all

uname -a
lsusb
ifconfig
just to check if it is.

There is a driver for your wifi included in the raspbian kernel image (/lib/modules/4.1.13+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/zd1211rw/zd1211rw.ko), unless you have overwritten or removed it when trying to install the driver you got with your wifi.

If the wifi driver is installed I would expect the ifconfig command to show details for wlan0, the standard name used for the wifi even if it has not been configured. Have you edited file /etc/network/interfaces as this could stop wlan0 appearing in the output of ifconfig? If you have edited the file you will need to restore it to it's original state.

As you are running the GUI you should be able to get the wifi working by selecting the network icon (two overlapping computer screens) at the top right of the screen next to the speaker icon. The icon changes to a wifi signal when the wifi is working.

Left clicking the icon should show a list of networks you wifi can detect. See here for more details on setting up the wifi.

Hi, I'm having wifi problems I went through the tutorial and my raspberry Pi is picking up the USB dongle when I ran lsusb and the modules for the device (ralink rt5370) are installed I'm using the wi-Pi adapter from element 14 the blue light used to come on and flash at boot but now it has stopped and i have no internet connection it's not picking up my network. I have tried for about a week or so now to get this working and have gone through several tutorials trying to get it working. Also the Ethernet was not working but I went through a tutorial which involved me turning off all the DHCP clients to get it working (I think this may be the cause of my problems the wifi wasn't working before I fixed the Ethernet but it still flashed/lit up) and I have Internet access through that but for the project I'm doing (Hexapod for robocup juniour) I need a wireless connection for ad-hoc (VPN/SSH) any help is very much appreciated as I am relatively new to raspberry Pi

If the tutorial you are referring to is the first post then I' not surprised your networking is not working. It was originally written almost 3 years ago and the network set up has been changed considerably since then. It makes no reference to the current latest network set up where editing the /etc/network/interfaces file to configure your wifi or ethernet is a bad idea.

Exactly how you need to set up your wifi may depend on the version of the kernel you are using. For the latest kernels, using raspbian, I set mine up like this. File /etc/network/interfaces is the defaults as it appears in the original raspbian image and should not be edited

Code: Select all

# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)

# Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd
# For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf'

# Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:
source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet manual

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

allow-hotplug wlan1
iface wlan1 inet manual
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
and file /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Code: Select all

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={
        ssid="your-network-name"
        psk="your-network-password"
}
This is how I have most of my Pi's configured and that is using a variety of different wifi adapters using different drivers, some of which I compile myself. I also connect to all my Pi's using SSH and have no problems doing that.

If you have been removing dhcp clients then that certainly will not help as dhcp is used to get the IP addresses for your network connections and I would suggest you start with a new SD card.

I found this thread when searching for help...
But it is soo long that I don't know where to start.
EDIT: Actually I started with the very first post but ALL of the tests show everything is OK and yet the darned WiFi will still not connect!
I assume with all the data in the conf and supplicant files it should really just connect by itself, but it does not.
And there is no SSID list when I click the network symbol in the GUI either...


Here is my problem:
Raspbian Jessie (Nov 2015) on a RPi2B
Edimax EW-7811Un USB WiFi dongle
When I insert the Edomax into the USB WiFi will never show up in the network icon (upper right corner).
But when I run this command to list the SSID:s in a terminal I can see all of the available networks:

Code: Select all

"bossehemma" is listed twice because I have a main router and a repeater
"auriga-ap" is a WiFi access point on my laptop (which is the one I want to connect WiFi to)
"Karlbom" is our neighbor's Internet router

So what the heck is stopping Raspbian Jessie from showing it and allowing me to connect?
Do I have to install something extra? The 32GB SD image I work with was created for software development (FreePascal/Lazarus) and only stuff related to that has been installed.

I thought WiFi support is there "out of the box" but it seems to not be so.
Any ideas, links, tutorials?

EDIT:
My supplicant file looks like this:

Code: Select all

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1

network={
        ssid="auriga-ap"
        psk="Volente2121"
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

network={
        ssid="bossehemma"
        key_mgmt=NONE
        wep_key0="FF23ED193A"
}
The data in this file was put there in an earlier attempt when the SSID list actually showed up in the GUI and I tried to connect.
But now it is impossible to get the list in the GUI.
Finally I ran the suggested command to get a list of the available networks and it shows this:

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~/Projects/fpc/GPIOtest $ sudo wpa_cli scan && sleep 5 && wpa_cli scan_results
Selected interface 'wlan0'

As I stated I want to connect to auriga-ap...
