Install wireless driver in BerryTerminal (Edimax EW-7811Un)

Sun Nov 04, 2012 8:27 am

I am attempting to use my Raspberry Pi as a LTSP thin terminal via BerryTerminal, however the driver for my wireless adapter isn't included in that distribution.

Can anyone point me to instructions in order to do this?

Raspberry Pi: Model B, 256 MB RAM
Wireless adapter: Edimax EW-7811Un
OS: BerryTerminal (via BerryBoot)

Based on a Google search, the card uses a Realtek chipset. You should be able to get it working with the command:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -y firmware-realtek
You'll need to enter your password when it asks. After the command completes, you should be able to connect.

I have read your post and was wondering; did you ever get the Berryterminal to boot from the LTSP server wirelessly with your Edimax wireless adaptor? I have been trying for days to get this to work. I have the wireless driver source code and have compiled it with the cross compiler within the Berryterminal code, against the kernel source tree in the Berryteminal code and have produced a loadable module for the Edimax wireless adaptor, but the module is reported to have an incompatible format by the kernel, when I try to insert it. This is a common problem, I believe.

Many thanks,
