Hi again! First of all thanks for the help!
Meanwhile i´ve tried with the new link but I get the message:
Checking for a new 8192eu wifi driver module for your current kernel.
A driver does not yet exist for this update.

so... I´m out of luck? help?
Thanks again

The script is for Raspbian drivers. For the kali driver to download and install use commands

Code: Select all

wget http://fars-robotics.net/8192eu-4.1.19-v7-kali.tar.gz
tar xzf 8192eu-4.1.19-v7-kali.tar.gz
./install.sh

Looks like you are trying to install the wrong version of the driver. Please post the output from commands

Code: Select all

uname -a
lsusb
so I can check which driver you need.

Ok now it worked!
Still I don´t get wlan0 displayed with ifconfig.
I have 2 sd cards one with raspian where I followed all the instructions here on the forum and it works perfectly whereas with the kali sd card at least now I got no errors but wlan0 does not show up still.

I don't normally use Kali but I did set up an SD card quite a long time ago and seem to remember setting up the wifi wasn't easy and is different to setting it up on Raspbian, using network manager I think. I used a TP-Link WN725N wifi using the 8188eu driver.

I just installed the 8192eu driver you are now using and then changed the wifi module to one using the 8192eu driver. I now have a connection to the Pi using Kali using the 8192eu wifi so the driver you have works.

I think it is the wifi set up that is probably the problem now. When I changed the wifi to 8192eu it took quite a long time before it got connected.

It might be a good idea to look at the Kali web site or forum for info on setting up the wifi.

Dropbox have made a major change to their web site and its really screwed things up. Really annoying to say the least so I have moved the drivers to a new site. I have a script to use the new site which will automatically determine the driver you need and download and install it.

Download and install the new version of the script with commands

Code: Select all

sudo wget http://www.fars-robotics.net/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
The command

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi -h
will show details on using it.

To install the driver on your current kernel you should just need to run command

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi
This will select the driver you need and automatically download and install it.

Thx.
Hi xronik,

The 8192eu wifi module I was using did not have an LED so I didn't realise the LED was not enabled. I have now updated the 8192eu drivers to enable the LED.

To get the LED working you will need to download and re-install the driver.

Hi Mr. Engman,

Running the script from your new site yielded the following:

*** Raspberry Pi wifi driver installer by MrEngman.
*** Performing self-update
*** Relaunching after update

*** Raspberry Pi wifi driver installer by MrEngman.

Your current kernel revision = 4.4.30-sc1+
Your current kernel build = #1

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

Your wifi module is Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:818b Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

And it uses the 8192eu driver.

Checking for a new 8192eu wifi driver module for your current kernel.
A driver does not yet exist for this update.

I'm running DietPi v144.

Is an 8192eu driver for kernel 4.4.30 on the way or should I revert to an older version of DietPi ?

Hi andybob,

The drivers I compile are for Rasbian and the file names are based on the Raspbian kernel version and build so the script will not work for DietPi. I don't think the Raspbian drivers will work with DietPi but you can try and install one manually just to see if it does.

For Pi 2B or 3B use commands

Code: Select all

wget http://fars-robotics.net/8192eu-4.4.30-v7-919.tar.gz
tar xzf 8192eu-4.4.30-v7-919.tar.gz
./install
For all other version of the Pi use commands

Code: Select all

wget http://fars-robotics.net/8192eu-4.4.30-919.tar.gz
tar xzf 8192eu-4.4.30-919.tar.gz

Thanks for the great script and drivers! I've installed the mt7610 driver for the TP-Link Archer T2U, but I can't seem to get it to work for the 5GHz band (it works fine at 2.4GHz). Any ideas?

Not really the right place to post about the T2U and mt7610 driver, however ...

Just loaded the mt7610 driver on to a Pi 2B running Raspbian 4.9.27-v7+. Rebooted and it initially connected to an AP at 2.4GHz. Disabled that AP and rebooted and then it connected to one of my other APs at 5GHz without problems. I use MAC Address filtering so can limit which of my APs a wifi adapter can connect to. In this case the T2U is now only allowed to connect to my 5GHz AP and appears to connect OK.

Just to see what might happen I then re-enabled the 2.4GHz AP and rebooted the Pi and the T2U then connected to that AP again at 2.4GHz. Disabled the 2.4GHz AP and rebooted again and the T2U connected back to my 5GHz AP. A bit weird as the 2.4GHz AP is about 8M from the Pi and the 5GHz AP is about 1.5M from the Pi so I would of expected the T2U to always use the 5GHz AP. No idea why it behaves like this except it could be an issue with the driver, but what I've no clue.

Thank you MrEngman. It was indeed a problem with incomplete tar file download. I was using my tethered mobile and wifi to download the file and it never quite completed the download. The current wifi module is so slow that the network dropped out before file transfer completion. In the end I used USB to get the file into my Pi B+ from the mobile.

lsusb returns 'Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0bda:818b Realtek Semiconductor Corp.' so I hope I have the right device!

It didn't help that it took me a while to realize I have a Pi B+ and not a P2 B+.
My next problem is that uname - a gives me 4.9.24+
I thought I could be clever and modify the install.sh file inside 8192eu-4.4.30-919.tar.gz to say 'kernel=4.9.24+' to install the driver correctly by but alas not! Is there anything else I can do except perhaps download an earlier Rasbian image? I can already hear foreheads hitting keyboards with despair but one has to start somewhere!

First it would be a good idea to fix your internet connection so you can download without problems.

The simplest way to install my wifi drivers is to use my install-wifi script which determine the wifi adapter you use and the kernel version you have and then should automatically download and install the right version of the driver. You can download and install the script using commands

Code: Select all

sudo wget http://fars-robotics.net/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
After it is installed to see info on how to use it use command

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi -h
If it's a problem downloading the script then the driver file you need is 8192eu-4.9.24-991.tar.gz to work on a Pi B+ with Raspbian 4.9.24+. And generally you cannot change the install.sh file to install a driver on a different kernel version than the install.sh file says it will install on. To download and install it use commands

Code: Select all

wget http://fars-robotics.net/8192eu-4.9.24-991.tar.gz
tar xzf 8192eu-4.9.24-991.tar.gz
./install.sh
Also if you update your kernel you will need to download an updated version of the driver.

Thank you for your help. I can see its a painfully long way to go before I get my boy scout badge in Beginners Linux!
I reformatted my SD card last night and started again. Of course your wifi installer had me up and running in no time.
Thank you.
