Hi mariourquia23,

The error you see is because when compiling modules a link is needed to the linux source or headers. You can create the link using command

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /home/pi/src/linux /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build
You will need to change the directory /home/pi/src/linux to the directory where your linux source is saved.

Just one warning and that is that the output of your command uname -a appears to show you may be using Berryboot. If it is I'm not sure compiling the module using any of the header directories you showed in you post will work. If you are using Berryboot I would suggest it might be a good idea to look on the Berryboot forum regarding compiling extra modules.

I am a complete noob with linux and I'm trying to learn this stuff as I go. I recently purchased a raspberry pi and installed raspbian, I already owned an alpha awus036ach which uses this driver and i would really like to continue using this wifi adapter. I followed the step in this guide to download and install the driver, reset the pi, and now nothing has a changed. My wifi adapter still won't power on. any suggestions on how to proceed or what to test / try next? any support will be appreciated.

How have you connected your wifi adapter to the Pi? Do you use a hub or is it directly connected to the Pi?

If connected directly to the Pi it could be a power issue. When you reset the Pi and it is starting up do you see the power LED flashing or turning off at all?

What model is your Pi? What does command uname -a show? What driver version did you download and install?

MrEngman
Right now it is connected directly to the Pi, I don't have access to a hub atm.

I assume your referring to the LED on the wifi adapter, it does not turn on at all when the Pi is booting. I don't think its a power issue since it powers on when I boot up OSMC, but I may be wrong.

I am using a Pi 2.

Linux raspberry 4.1.13-v7+ #826 SMP PREEMPT ... arm7l GNU/Linux

I installed this, wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/802 ... 826.tar.gz

Thanks for looking over this.

No, he meant the red (=power) LED on the Pi itself. If it is blinking or completely off then it is a power issue.

The red light is on steady for the most part, it has 1 blink during boot up

Hi,

I have a Raspberry Pi B+ with OpenElec.
uname -a: Linux OpenELEC 3.12.26-rpi-aufs #1 PREEMPT Thu Aug 14 10:48:01 CEST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

I have downloaded a version of the drivers on this post but it seems that it is for another version
insmod /lib/modules/3.12.26-rpi-aufs/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8812au.ko
insmod: ERROR: could not insert module /lib/modules/3.12.26-rpi-aufs/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8812au.ko: Invalid module format

Can someone give the correct ko because we can't use the make command under openelec.

Thanks

From the output of command uname -a it appears as though you are running BerryBoot. In which case the driver needs compiling for BerryBoot.

Hello MrEngman,
Like jfleboite, I would like to use the WUSB6300 Linksys adapter that embeds a Realtek driver matching the rtl881au WiFi driver on my RPI but it does not work. I saw that you were able to compile a driver for him but I tried it and it does not work on my distrib. The version I am using is the 4.1.7-v7+ #817 SMP PREEMPT Sat Sep 19 15:32:00 BST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux.
I tried to do it on my Raspi but it did not work because of header missmatch :-(
If you have the means to compile the driver for my kernel version it should be very welcome :-), or probably explain me the way of doing it...

In advance I thank you very much.
Best regards,
Nixies

Try this

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/8812au-4.1.7-v7-817.tar.gz
tar xzf 8812au-4.1.7-v7-817.tar.gz
./install.sh
The command ./install.sh installs the driver and any other required files.

I use a standard format for the filename of the drivers I compile. If you update your kernel use command uname -a to find the new kernel revision and build and change the file name above to use the new kernel version and build.

As an example for kernel 4.1.21-v7+ #872 you would need to change the filename to 8812au-4.1.21-v7-872.tar.gz in the commands above.

Hello MrEngman,

I have just tried this and it works perfectly :) . I thank you very much.
Does it mean that this driver is available for any kernel version ? We just have to modify the file name as explained and it's ok ?
Are you at the origine of these driver compilation or is it a job of the community ?

Sorry for these questions but I am a bit curious ;)

Thanks a lot again !

I re-compile this driver and several others, 8188eu, 8192eu, mt7610 and mt7612(mt7662) whenever there is an update via rpi-update. All versions for raspbian kernels 3.18, 4.1 and 4.4 are available on Dropbox.

Edimax EW-7811UAC (RTL8812AU)

Wed Apr 20, 2016 11:02 pm

Hello MrEngman,

I'm using the EW-7811UAC on a Raspberry Pi B+ (I've also tried a Pi 2) configured as a WiFi bridge (Access Point without DHCP enabled). The Pi is connected directly to my router via an Ethernet cable. I'm doing this in order to have WiFi available that conforms to 802.11ac specs. It seems no matter what I do I cannot achieve link speeds anywhere near the 433 Mbps max. The best I can do on 802.11ac is 54 Mbps and on 802.11n 72 Mbps

Here's what I get from iwconfig -

wlan0 IEEE 802.11AC ESSID:"RasPiAP" Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"
Mode:Master Frequency:5.765 GHz Access Point: 74:DA:38:6A:04:AD
Bit Rate:54 Mb/s Sensitivity:0/0
Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

The uname -a command gives me this -

Linux raspberrypi 4.1.19-v7+ #858 SMP Tue Mar 15 15:56:00 GMT 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux

and I'm using this driver -
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/802 ... 858.tar.gz - which I believe you may be the author.

This is my hostapd.conf file -

ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd
macaddr_acl=0 auth_algs=1
driver=nl80211
interface=wlan0
bridge=br0
country_code=US
hw_mode=a
ieee80211n=1
#ieee80211h=1
wmm_enabled=1
#ht_capab=[HT40+][SHORT-GI-40][DSSS_CK-40]
ieee80211ac=1
channel=153
ssid=RasPiAP
ignore_broadcast_ssid=0
wpa=3
wpa_passphrase=password
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_pairwise=TKIP
rsn_pairwise=CCMP

I've tried uncommenting the commented lines in various combinations but without success.

By the way, I connected this adapter to a Windows 10 notebook PC configured as a network bridge and was able to a attain a link speed of 433 Mbps so I know my adapter is working.

Any help is greatly appreciated - I've been fighting this for a week.

Hey,

First of all, thank you MrEngman for your great work!

But here comes my problem:
I am using an Edimax 7811USC which also uses the RTL8812AU Driver.
After following MrEngmans guide, I got the adapter working in managed mode and could easily connect to my wifi.
However, when I put the adapter in monitor mode (by creating a seperate interface "mon0") and try to change the channel, it gives me the error: Operation not supported (-95).

Can someone explain to me why this error occures? I have been working on this for several days now, but couldn't find a solution.

Good day MrEngman

I see you are extremely knowledgeable with usb wifi problems. I am very new to all of this and require some assistance if you do not mind.

I have a RPi 2B and an Asus USB-AC56 Wifi dongle.

I downloaded your compiled driver 8812au-4.4.14-v7-896.tar.gz driver
used tar -xzf 8812au-4.4.14-v7-896.tar.gz to extract the file

Then i executed ./install.sh and rebooted the RPi.

The drivers do not load and the unit does not come up

Could you please assist?
I would really appreciate your assistance

This is what I have on my Rpi

I see you are extremely knowledgeable with usb wifi problems. I am very new to all of this and require some assistance if you do not mind.

I have a RPi 2B and an Asus USB-AC56 Wifi dongle.

I downloaded your compiled driver 8812au-4.4.14-v7-896.tar.gz driver
used tar -xzf 8812au-4.4.14-v7-896.tar.gz to extract the file

Then i executed ./install.sh and rebooted the RPi.

The drivers do not load and the unit does not come up

Could you please assist?
I would really appreciate your assistance
I have just set up a Pi 2 B, with raspbian 4.4.14-v7+ #896, with the Asus USB-AC56 wifi dongle and it is working OK.

I assume you are using Raspbian. Is it wheezy or jessie? Can you post the output of command uname -a and the contents of files /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf?
