Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 4.1.xx+

Wed Sep 02, 2015 6:07 am

Hello,

I am using the WN725 as AP without issues, thanks to this thread's contributors.

I am now trying to reduce the transmit power of the device, but am failing to do so, as shown below.

Am i doing something wrong or is this simply not supported ?

Thanks

Hi! I am a newbie in Raspbian,recently I bought a Raspberry Pi 2 with TL-WN727N Dongle but my Pi was unable to detect it so
I tried to follow the instruction for installing the TL-WN725N, however it turned out to be not working.

The TL-WN727N uses the mt7601 driver which is not installed in the version of raspbian you have. You can download and install the driver with the following commands

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/mt7601-3.18.11-v7-781.tar.gz

./install.sh
Your set up in /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf looks OK so after installing the driver reboot and hopefully you should find your wifi works.

many Thanks,
I was starting to regret my EBAY purchase:
EBAY NEW-Realtek-RTL8188cus

and of course... NO it was not a RTL8188cus chipset but a RTL8188eu
I hope the RTL8188eu chip gets supported OOB in raspian soon.

This thread is for the TL-WN725N and other drivers using the 8188eu driver, not for the TL-WN727N using the mt7601 driver, so you will not find the driver you need listed.

There is a driver now included in the raspbian image but it needs firmware loading. You can do that with the command

Code: Select all

sudo wget https://github.com/porjo/mt7601/raw/master/src/mcu/bin/MT7601.bin -O /lib/firmware/mt7601u.bin
Reboot after loading the firmware and the wifi should work.

After loading the firmware you will be able to update the kernel and not worry about having to update the driver as well as this will be done automatically when the kernel is updated.

There are several posts in the forum for the WN727N and the mt7601 driver, just search the forum for "WN727N" or "mt7601"

Last night I installed OSMC on a new raspberry pi B+ with a TP Link TL-WN725N V2.1 wifi dongle. I cannot seem to get the dongle to work at all with my raspberry pi. I have tried a few things throughout this message thread with no success. Last night I had been able to use it to connect to my network but could not download anything and it slows the pi to the point where it could not install any repo's. I tried again today and now I cannot even connect to my network using the OSMC network configure program. When I try to connect it says "failed to connect" and after a couple times trying it kills my raspberry pi and shows a sad face on the screen then reboots :(... Could someone please help me figure this out (I have another similar dongle and installed it properly on my first raspberry pi after using the above suggestions but can't seem to get this one going).

Thanks everyone!
Kyle

Well,
this is the end for me, as Jessie supports natively the 8188eu dongle.

Thank you for your support !!

I've been using Mr Engman's driver on my Jessie testing machine for many months because the built-in driver is worse than useless.

Dohhh,
Thanks for the heads up.
were you facing bad bitrate or connection drop off? I have been up with Jessie for only 1-2 hours of usage, mostly via weaved.

Thanks,

Is there a 8188eu driver available for kernel revision = 4.1.9-v7+ & kernel build = #819? My Raspberry Pi2B is currently wired because the WiFi won't run.

Should be available now, Dougie.

I have just looked at OSMC and the driver for your wifi is now included in the image. You should be able to get it working by just configuring it.

If you have previously used my driver there may be a file installed that may stop the built in driver working. The file is /etc/modprobe.d/8188eu.conf. Check if the file is installed using command

Code: Select all

ls /etc/modprobe.d/8188eu.conf
and if it is you will need to delete it and reboot your Pi to get the built in driver to work. Delete the file using command

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/8188eu.conf
and then reboot your Pi.

You should then be able get your wifi running with the built in driver.

Hello!

I was wondering if you could help me out with compiling the driver, I did read about the script you used to compile the kernels in the past (on the first page) but I figured it changed somewhat over time.

I need the driver for the kernel 3.18.9-rt5-v7+ #1,
its a realtime kernel variant of the usual 3.18.9-v7+ (8188eu-v7-20150307.tar.gz) which I tried to use to no avail, I've modified the install.sh script to match the realtime kernel but this didn't work out...

Thanks for your help! :)
