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

Sat May 22, 2021 2:30 pm

Hello @MrEngman

Thank you for your hard work keeping all of our wifi's running :-)

I have a problem with my TL-WN725 V3, trying to get it to work on my Raspberry Pi .

I'v run your install-wifi script, with the following result:
*** Raspberry Pi wifi driver installer by MrEngman.
*** Performing self-update
*** Relaunching after update

*** Raspberry Pi wifi driver installer by MrEngman.

Your current kernel revision = 5.10.38-v7+
Your current kernel build = #2

Checking for a wifi module to determine the driver to install.

Your wifi module is Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188EUS 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter

And it uses the 8188eu driver.


Your Pi revision number is a02082
You have a Pi 3B v1.2
Checking for a 8188eu wifi driver module for your current kernel.
A driver does not exist for this update.
I think my kernel version is too new ?

Can you help me ?


Thanks

Christian

Hi - allow me to answer my own post :-)

I just reinstalled the latest Raspberry pi image on my raspi.

Since it is now running a slightly older kernelversion (5.10.17-v7+), the install-wifi script works.

I now have working wifi on my raspi! Yeah :D

Thanks

Christian

There was a newly released Raspberry Pi kernel package, dated yesterday, for which there isn't yet an 8188eu module? I use that that module on my three zeros. I think the last module I used was "http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi ... 414.tar.gz".

My zero W's got the update and their uname -a is now "Linux pi0w4 5.10.17+ #1421 Thu May 27 13:58:02 BST 2021 armv6l".

I appreciate you keeping up this whole process for so long, for the benefit of so many of us. I hope that you've got an automated process for this, which just hasn't yet caught up, and not that this is something you're aware of and I'm just annoyingly whining and nagging...

Hello @MrEngman

First I would like to thank you for your job on maintaning a drivers database for these wifi modules.

I would like to ask you to provide a driver for 5.10.17-v7+ #1421 kernel version as I tried to update my rapsberry pi (sudo apt-get update) but now it can't find the proper wifi driver for my wifi dongle.

Unfortunatelly sudo rpi-update is not an option as it uptades to 5.10.39-v7+ #1421 kernel version, which also does not have a wifi driver available.

Thanks again and best regards,

Pulsus

Code: Select all

$ sudo install-wifi

The desired driver file is there now. I downloaded and installed it and and my zeros are back in business. Thank you!
