Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 4.xx.xx+

Wed Aug 23, 2017 12:15 am

After installing raspbian lite if I did an "ifconfig" I see the adapter named as wlx[MAC ADDRESS] and "lsusb" showed it to me as
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188EUS 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter
so all I had to do was to run this:

sudo ln -s /dev/null /etc/udev/rules.d/80-net-setup-link.rules

- And reboot. it is now shown as wlan0 and I can scan and see my networks using:

iwlist wlan0 scan

- Next I added my wifi network data with

sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
and added:
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-ssid "NETWORKNAME"
wpa-psk "PASSWORD"
Saved with ctrl+x then Y and enter
Did a reboot
After that it auto-connected to my wifi!

I have a problem after installing the driver.

Code: Select all

root@raspberrypi:~# brctl addbr br0

root@raspberrypi:~# brctl addif br0 wlan0
can't add wlan0 to bridge br0: Operation not supported

root@raspberrypi:~# iwconfig 
lo        no wireless extensions.

wlan0     unassociated  Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency=2.437 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated   
          Retry:off   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

it is possible to install the generic driver that brings by default that if I worked

You can remove my driver using 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)
Rebooting should then use the built in staging driver.

Hello everyone,

currently I have newest version of Raspbian and that TL-WN725N . I had same problems 1 year ago, but finally I resolved it as I remember with maaany problems. I had to clear SD card and now have another raspbian version. What should I do now? Is it possible to run it with newest raspbian version (release 2017-09-07) or I should do downgrade to specified version? I don;t have much time for configurations that's why I am asking. Thanks a lot for any help :)
