Re: (UPDATE) Drivers for TL-WN725N V2 - 3.6.11+ -> 3.10.33+

Wed Mar 19, 2014 7:05 pm

Hi MrEngman,
I'm experiencing slow speed transfert with Raspbmc stock rtl8188eu driver (below 10 Mb/s), so I'd like to use one of yours precompiled drivers; uname -a says: Linux raspbmc 3.10.24 #2 PREEMPT Mon Dec 23 05:18:12 UTC 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux. What driver I have to download? It seems that there isn't a precompiled drv for this kernel version...

Thank you for work :D

Epg.

I think the driver is the same as I use so will almost certainly not make any difference.

Is there a driver for :

You can try this

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/8188eu-test.tar.gz
tar -zxvf 8188eu-test.tar.gz
sudo install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/3.10.36+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
sudo insmod /lib/modules/3.10.36+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
sudo depmod 3.10.36+
This is a new driver I've compiled for 3.10.36+ but I've found it works with all versions from 3.10.27+ #630 to 3.10.36+ #662.

Let me know how you get on.

Well... I followed your instructions and installed the driver,but immediately following the depmod -a it caused a reboot. Now the GUI is not responsive with keyboard and mouse input... Still no wifi. :'(

Hi MrWm,

If sudo depmod 3.10.36+ caused a reboot then it's likely there may be a problem with the setup. Did you try the setup from a terminal in the GUI or did you run them from the Command Line Terminal?

What do these commands show

Code: Select all

cat /etc/network/interfaces
sudo cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_wpa_supplicant.conf
ifconfig
Does command

Code: Select all

sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
show any networks or just a message?

Nevermind.. I found my error... I entered depmod -a instead of depmod 3.10.36+

Installing the newer driver should just overwrite the older one so there shouldn't be any necessity to uninstall the old one.

You can of course search for all loaded copies of the 8188eu.ko driver file and delete any that are unnecessary.

Code: Select all

sudo find / -name 8188eu.ko
and delete them using command

Code: Select all

sudo rm /directory/to/8188eu.ko
for each one in the list the find command shows.

The only one you need to keep is

Code: Select all

/lib/modules/3.10.36+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
The newer drivers I compile do not need a separate firmware file, rtl8188eufw.bin, so you could delete that as well, if it's installed, but it is not necessary except to gain an extra few KBs of space as it will be ignored by the new driver.

No trouble, this is normal behaviour with the Pi unfortunately. You need to have your wifi module plugged in before turning on the power. Or use a powered hub and plug the wifi into the hub. I have found, however, that using a hub can sometimes cause odd problems.

I have found a way round this issue and that is to connect the wifi adaptor to the Pi using a USB extension cable. I can then unplug and plug in the wifi to the extension cable without the Pi rebooting.

OK, what are you trying to do, what driver website? Would be helpful if you said what you are actually trying to do, or what command was causing the error.

Hi,
has anyone compiled a driver for the following kernel?

Code: Select all

Linux picam 3.6.11+ #26 PREEMPT Tue Nov 26 18:19:51 SGT 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux
The kernel is required in order to use the framebuffer feature for the PiTFT
I've tried several compiled files, but non has worked so far.

Thanks for the pre-compiled module and all the work you have done.
I found this which may interest you.
http://314256.blogspot.com/2014/04/part ... ghput.html

I was a bit disappointed by the throughput rates, until I found out that it was pretty much the same for all WiFi and not some limitation of the RPi, the driver or a bottleneck caused by the shared internal three port USB hub.

Ok if you want to see how fast the wifi can transfer at but this is the trouble with speed tests and this one is very artificial. When are you going to download data from another machine on your network and effectively throw the data away by transferring to /dev/null. A real world test where the data is being transferred from the internet into or out of memory (SD card) rather than using /dev/null is far more realistic. My wifi transfer rates vary considerably depending on what is happening on my network and how many others are using it. Max rates I see are about 800KB/s but it sometimes transfers much slower, sometimes as slow as 10KB/s, if the network is busy.

MrEngman
I agree that it is an artificial test, but it does set as many things that can be controlled to a known best case, to see the maximum data rate achievable. Like if you were capturing an image with the RPi camera module, storing the jpg on a RAM disk and uploading it to a website. If you were getting only 1KB/sec you would be reasonably sure that unless it was in an airport (high 802.11/bluetooth interference area) that WiFi was not the cause of this bottleneck. It is a test where the smallest link in the data transfer chain should be the WiFi, it is basically trying to stress it and it alone.
