I am totally new to the Pi and am struggling right now with my wifi.
I need the 8192EU drivers, uname -a brought up:

Mr. Engman, could you provide me the right driver?
Try this

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/8192eu-4.1.19-v7-858.tar.gz
tar xzf 8192eu-4.1.19-v7-858.tar.gz
./install.sh
And take a look here.

Hi MrEngman,
I have been using your files successfully for long time but now something goes wrong. When I apply your patch the device is no more recognised by the system.
Raspberry 3 (I can only see built-in wifi wlan0 but not wlan1).
Device: RTL8192EU

Code: Select all

uname -a
Linux raspberrypi 4.4.9-v7+ #884 SMP Fri May 6 17:28:59 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux

Is someone else experimenting this issue?

Thanks!

The wifi you are seeing working is almost certainly the 8192eu wifi.

If you install my drivers on a Pi 3 B then it will disable the built in Broadcom wifi. To get the built in wifi working as well you need to edit the file /etc/modprobe.d/8192eu.conf and comment out or delete the line blacklist ... like

Code: Select all

#blacklist brcmfmac
options 8192eu rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=0
Then reboot and you should find both wlan0 and wlan1.

lsmod lists the module as 8192eu, however ls /sys/class/net/wlan0/device/driver/module/drivers/ lists the module as rtl8192eu which causes problems when trying to script automated unloading and loading of the driver incase of raspbian usb bus resets or other issues. Can someone fix this?

Very common for Realtek drivers. Perhaps you should adjust your script although why you should need to know the driver name I can't think why.

If the wifi goes down it should be sufficient to try to bring it back up, which doesn't need the driver name. Maybe look at this

You should not need to download the 8188cus driver as I would expect that driver to be included in the kernel image. The driver for 8188cus wifi is 8192cu or rtl8192cu depending on the OS used.

If you connect your 8188cus wifi to the Pi 3 and use command lsmod I would expect it to show 8192cu or rtl8192cu if the driver is included and your wifi is recognised. You will then just need to configure your wifi to get it working.

What image are you using?

You can check for the 8192cu driver using command

Code: Select all

sudo find /lib -name "*8192*.ko"
Tell me what the result of this command is.

I'm having a hard time with this USB wifi adapter as well, I'm trying to get it to work with a Raspberry B+ (4.1.7-v7+), are there any pre-compiled drivers that I can easily install?

So the 8192cu driver is in your kernel image. 2.1.2 sounds like it may be Kali. If it is perhaps you should go to the Kali web site and ask your questions there.

What OS are you using. There are drivers available that I have compiled for Raspbian.

You say you are using a Pi B+ with kernel 4.1.7-v7+. That is not right. A Pi B+ will use kernel 4.1.7+. with NO "-v7". What is the output of command uname -a.

OK you are using raspbian. I have a number of different drivers I have compiled that can be downloaded.

You did not say which wifi you are using so can you post the output of command lsusb when you have the wifi connected to your Pi.

Sorry, but I just need to ask as the post is about wifi using the 8192eu driver but there have been quite a few posts about using other drivers so I just need to be sure which one you use. The last few posts have been about the wifi using the 8188cus/8192cu driver which is included in the kernel image and as you say
joerod wrote:I'm having a hard time with this USB wifi adapter as well
it's not clear which one you have. If you do have wifi which uses the 8192cu driver then you do not need to download a driver as it is included in the raspbian image. You just need to configure your wifi to get it to work.

OK, Try these commands to download and install the 8912eu driver.

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/8192eu-4.1.7-v7-817.tar.gz
tar xzf 8192eu-4.1.7-v7-817.tar.gz
./install.sh
The ./install.sh command will install the driver. After installing the driver you should reboot with the wifi module connected to the Pi. Run command lsmod to check the driver is loaded. If you do not see 8192eu listed please post the output from command lsusb to check the USB ID of the wifi adapter and make sure it is included in the current version of the driver I have compiled.

HI,

My PI0 and PI3 release is 4.4.13-V7+. Do you have the RTL8192EU driver for it or something similar?
I downloaded the driver for 4.4.9-v7 but doesn't work.

Many Thanks,

The 4.4.9-v7 driver should work, it does for me. This is provided you are using the Raspbian image, Jessie or Wheezy.

For 4.4.13-v7+ try

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/8192eu-4.4.13-v7-894.tar.gz
tar xzf 8192eu-4.4.13-v7-894.tar.gz
