Thank you in advance!
If you are using raspbian 4.1.7-v7+ #817 and have downloaded that driver file I would not expect that error, possibly " Unknown symbol in module" but not "Invalid module format".

The drivers I compile are for raspbian and will not work with other OS's. What OS are you using? What is the complete output of command uname -a.

As you say you are using 4.1.7-v7+ #817 I would expect it may include the built in r8188eu driver so you should not need to install the driver I compile to get your wifi working.

Check the built in driver and the necessary firmware files are included with the commands

Code: Select all

ls /lib/modules/4.1.7-v7+/kernel/drivers/staging/rtl8188eu/r8188eu.ko
ls /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8188eufw.bin
If the firmware is not included install it using command

Code: Select all

sudo wget https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu/raw/master/rtl8188eufw.bin -O /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8188eufw.bin

Raspbian Jessie 4.1.7-v7+ #817 already has a built-in driver.
So it is not necessary to install the driver and when you upgrade the system, too.

Nice! I think this is already running. I was a problem of Hostapd application that doesn't work properly.

Thank you!

I installed grblweb/reprapweb on a Raspberry 2.
This command:

Code: Select all

uname -a
returned this:

Code: Select all

Linux xyzbots 3.18.0-trunk-rpi2 #1 SMP PREEMPT Debian 3.18.5-1~exp1.co1 (2015-02-02) armv7l GNU/Linux
so I tried to install drivers for 3.18.5-v7. I changed "3.18.5-v7" to "3.18.0-trunk-rpi2" in install.sh and installed it with ./install.sh

I ran "dmesg" and I saw that:

Code: Select all

8188eu: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout
I think I should compile the driver specifically for my OS. How could I do this? Is there any chance to find a compiled driver?

Hey,

Thanks for the amazingly informative post. However, I wanted to ask for some guidance, as my new RPi2 says the firmware version is 3.19.3 and I am unable to trace the correct driver to install for this. If anyone has any leads, I would be very grateful. Thanks!

Hi

I have purchased a Rpi with firmware 4.1.13-v7+ #826 and a TL-WN725n v2.1. When i follow the instructions it says the drivers have been installed but still wont pick up any or connect to my wifi.

Any ideas on what it can be?

Hey,

My rpi2 is loaded with recalbox. I managed to fix it with the invaluable help of Mr. Engman, who advised me to install the following driver:-

Code: Select all

3.18.16+ #796       - 8188eu-20150619.tar.gz
However, that itself didnt fix the issue. After installing the drivers, I ran the following commands:-

Code: Select all

wget -O /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8188eufw.bin https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu/raw/master/rtl8188eufw.bin
on the basis of this forum post:- http://blog.recalbox.com/forums/topic/t ... tl-wn725n/

Thereafter, a quick reboot had the wifi card up and running!

Thanks all!

Hi

Running Raspbian Jessie 4.1.13-v7+ #826 on a Pi 2 Model B and a Pi Zero.
Wifi adapter: 0bda:0179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
Nothing else plugged in.
2 amp power supply.
Accessed by ssh.

I can confirm that the built in driver (r8188eu) is flaky and dropping packets on both the above Pis.
It seems to be much worse on the Pi Zero.

The driver 8188eu listed here is as solid as a rock on both.

Many thanks
Stephen

To install the drivers I compile you should run the commands

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/8188eu-v7-20150212.tar.gz
tar xzf 8188eu-v7-20150212.tar.gz
./install.sh
to install it correctly. This is explained in the instructions in the first post in this thread. You should then reboot the Pi.

The error you see "Unknown symbol in module" is because the driver requires other modules to be loaded and they are not loaded until the driver is installed correctly and you reboot the Pi.

NOTE: There is an 8188eu driver that is now included in the Raspbian image but you may have to load firmware to use it. To use the built in driver you will need to uninstall my driver and update the realtek firmware. You can delete my driver and update the built in realtek firmware using the commands

Code: Select all

sudo rm /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/8188eu.conf
sudo depmod $(uname -r)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firmware-realtek
Which version of the driver you use is up to you but there are some people who prefer to use the driver I compile as they say it is more reliable, but if you do use my driver you will need to update it every time you update your kernel. Using the built in driver you do not need to update it as this is done automatically whenever you update the kernel.

I'm a complete beginner trying to set up my raspberry pi for first time, I am currently looking for drivers for the following version? They don't seem to be available yet, should I use 4.1.14-v7+ #830 instead?

Hi Mr Engman,

Are you going to build your drivers for the experimental 4.4.0-rc7 (BRANCH=next rpi-update) kernel? Only I'm reluctant to run that on my RPi2B until I can get a known good 8188eu driver (because wiring it to the network is pain).
Any language using left-hand whitespace for syntax is ridiculous

Any DMs sent on Twitter will be answered next month.

Hi Dougie,

OK, just tried to compile it and it fails with a huge number of warnings and errors so I think you are out of luck unless someone can suggest a fix.

This is the first file with the warnings

There are a large number of very similar warnings in other files. My knowledge of C is almost non-existent but the warnings are so consistent in the various files it probably only needs a minor update to fix.

I shall have a hunt around the internet but if anyone's got any suggestions? I can supply the source to look at if someone would care to take a look at it.

You can find it here. I Cross-compile on a PC running Ubuntu. Compiles without any errors or warnings on 3,12, 3.18, 4.0 and 4.1 using tools/arm-bcm2708/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-raspbian from the tools repo.

Tried this update but the compile still fails on 4.4 with a huge number of warnings/errors.

The driver for 4.4.0-rc7 looks OK now I fixed the initial patch I screwed up applying. Been up now about 40hrs with the updated driver and no sign of any problems. I've been running some real data transfer tests on my Pi 2B transferring a 3GB file back and forth between my Pi and W7 laptop using pscp from putty and it's running fine with transfer rates between 900-1250kB/s, currently fairly solid at around about 1150kB/s from the Pi to the W7.

Hi,

I've got a Raspberry pi 2 B, 4.1.13-v7+ #826, and I've downloaded the specified driver from the beginning of this thread, and was able to use it as a client, connecting to my home wifi. However, I'd like to use it as a AP, so I've compiled hostapd from https://github.com/jenssegers/RTL8188-h ... 2.0.tar.gz. I'm able to see the ssid, but when I try to connect it just wont, and I get the following line in dmesg:

Code: Select all

[17849.883039] RTL871X: OnDisassoc(wlan0) reason=8, ta=30:75:12:a1:c8:8a
This line seems to come from the driver part, and not from hostapd itself, right? So, I though i'd ask here what it means, and what I might do to resolve the issue.

I've not had a chance to try it, been too busy staying up until 03:00 this morning watching the low order digit of the calendar year increment (year++;). I've got my 2B wired at the moment.

I've tried setting up a Pi as an AP a few times just to see if it works using http://www.daveconroy.com/turn-your-ras ... s-chipset/ and I was able use it without problems with a TL-WN725N as well as the EW-7811Un, although I haven't tried it for quite a while now.

Found this http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=7498.0 on the internet which appears to indicate the error you're seeing is due to an issue with defining the security mode in the AP.

Thanks for the the link. The thing is though, that I get the same error even if I configure it as an unsecure network, but I will try different combinations to see whether that changes anything.

Not working for me. I downloaded the file for my version, which is 4.1.13-v7+ #826.

I get as far as

Code: Select all

$ sudo insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
But the response is:

Code: Select all

Error: could not insert module /lib/modules/4.1.13-v7+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko: Invalid module format
Any suggestions?
