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

Wow -- your driver and hostapd works on 8188eu without a hitch. I am on Raspian 4.14.48+ on a Raspberry Pi Zero. Just from the modinfo 8818eu I see there is a lot more supported in this driver module. iw/iwconfig commands also seem to be working.

Is there a GPL or BSD license for the source code for the built drivers or is it private source:
http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/

All I did was:
(1) "uname -r" came back with 4.14.48+
(2) download driver for http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi ... eu-drivers which is the following driver package 8188eu-4.14.48-1118.tar.gz (4.14.48)
(3) tar -xvzf 8188eu-4.14.48-1118.tar.gz
(4) ran the installation script
(5) Followed this directions: https://scribles.net/creating-wireless- ... pi-zero-w/ (updates system, brings down hostapd and dnsmasq, and configures the appropriate files)

Thanks a bunch. Now to try to make the zero connect to a vpn server -- I ultimately want a VPN router but my current one doesn't support it AND I think I will lose a lot of hardware support if I go to Linux firmware (DD-WRT?).

Hi corrobor,

It would appear the issue is to do with Raspbian Stretch and the mt7610u driver.

When I checked the driver and it was OK when rebooting or using shutdown or halt it appears the kernel I was using was Raspbian Jessie although it was updated to kernel 4.14.44-v7+.

I made a new SD card with Raspbian Stretch and now I am getting the same problem you see when the kernel appears to crash when using reboot or shutdown/halt.

I have no idea why it is happening and I've been looking for some different source code to try but have not been able to find any yet.

I am trying to find a driver that works but I don't know how long that will take.
Nothing?

The driver itself works perfectly for me, but I have some issues with installing & updating.

Of course you won't be able to download this driver on the pi itself without it having the driver (unless you connect it via ethernet, which is not an option on the A+ or an embedded system). This isn't that big of a deal, since I can just download it on my pc and put it on the boot partition of the sd card.
Doing this once isn't really a problem. But when the kernel is updated I have to do it all over again, which is somewhat of an issue for me since I can't easily shutdown my project and take out the sd card.
Is there some way that I can detect when the kernel is going to be updated and download the new driver is advance?

Also the site seems to be extremely slow since yesterday (<1 KB/s), downloading the 400KB driver takes literally forever
