The driver needed by your wifi is file 8192cu.ko.

With your wifi connected to your RPi it should load automatically and appear in the list of modules displayed by command lsmod as 8192cu. Can you check the file is included in your image using command sudo find / -name 8192cu.ko? This should show an entry

Code: Select all

/lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko
which is the file that should be used.

If the file is there what response do you get if you use command

Code: Select all

sudo insmod /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko

Problem solved with this command !
sudo insmod /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko
No response, but ifconfig now show me wlan0 output.

Thank you MrEngman :)

Good to hear you're getting somewhere but I'm a little surprised. As the command insmod gave no response the driver was not loaded. This file would normally be loaded automatically when you boot as the lsusb shows your wifi OK and you should then see wlan0 in ifconfig even if it has not been fully configured.

If the file is loaded and you try to use the insmod command I would then expect to see a response like

Code: Select all

Error: could not insert module /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtl8192cu/8192cu.ko: File exists
It might also be useful to run the command sudo depmod -a to register the driver.

I use several keys on this Pi (advance 8192CUS, TP-LINK V1 & V2, Bluestork), and I've made lots of tests, so I've probably messed up all the settings. I have to format the SD...

No problem and FYI lsusb shows TP-Link V2 which uses 8188eu.ko as

Code: Select all

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
ID 0bda:8179 being the important bit ;)

I've put an TP-LINK WN725 V2 on my Pi.
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

With the #518 linux firmware, it works perfectly.
After an apt-get update / upgrade ( -> #538), the wifi dongle is not recognized anymore.

Then, I get the last driver as specified on the page before

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/8188eu-20130830.tar.gz
tar -zxvf 8188eu-20130830.tar.gz
sudo install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
sudo insmod /lib/modules/3.6.11+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
sudo depmod -a
Now, ifconfig show me wlan0

Code: Select all

wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr f8:1a:67:21:f0:3b
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:629 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:34048 (33.2 KiB)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
But there is no connexion to the network.
(I didn't touch the wpa_supplicant config file of course).

Additionnaly, dmesg provides these informations:

Code: Select all

[  833.597860] RTL8188: ERROR sta recv deauth reason code(15) sta:92:23:b1:f9:54:e4
[  833.612746] RTL8188: ERROR indicate disassoc
[  835.098649] RTL8188: ERROR assoc success
Any idea ?
Thank you.

auto-reply: found !

Now it works, by deleting the pairwise line in my wpa_supplicant.conf file. *
I don't even know what it's used for, but with the last linux firmware it prevents association with my box.

* it also works with pairwise=CCMP TKIP, instead of pairwise=TKIP

Linux raspberrypi 3.6.11+ #541 PREEMPT Sat Sep 7 19:46:21 BST 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux
which is slightly different to what it shows on your RPi. The drivers are compiled to run with the standard raspbian image.

I use driver 8188eu-20130830.tar.gz with no problems with raspbian #541. Which one have you downloaded and used?

And if I dun have LAN connection(which I only have phone internet at home),how can I copy/drag the .ko file into the SD card?
If anyone know how to do it, I'm hereby begging you to teach me. I will be appreciate on that and if you in Malaysia,I can get you a drink too. Thank.
see my note below about liu's Github post. I can see it in ifconfig now.

As for the network, use a cable to your notebook and share your wireless over ethernet. If you have to, set your DNS to 8.8.8.8 / 8.8.8.4


Oh yeah - I'm in JB ;-)

Hello there. Just registered to ask if I'm the only one having troubles with MrEngman's BerryBoot image, which I downloaded from here:
MrEngman wrote: OK, the image is just BerryBoot and is about 24.5MB. You can download it here http://db.tt/7TAJuNMt. You should end up with a file berryboot-rtl8188eu.tar.gz. Install using the normal BerryBoot installation instructions.
(Post Permalink: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 05#p347305)

I can't make it boot, as I assume the installation instructions are copying files to a FAT32 formatted SD card.

By the way, I'd like to thank all users participating in this post. I've red it twice and it was very useful. Thank you!

I echo Quorth's post here, after copying some of the files in the zip file over, I was able to get Berryboot to boot, but the driver is not available in the GUI or in any of the images I load after. It also keeps moaning that Berryboot needs to update.
MrEngman, do you compile Berryboot from source when you integrate the driver ? Is it possible you could create an updated version with latest Berryboot and this driver ?

cheers,

Hi,

The drivers and modules used by Berryboot and the images it installs are stored in the file shared.tgz.

I've been trying to find how I generated the berryboot image I made but I'm having trouble remembering. I think I used instructions I found through the berryboot web site but can't find the details at the moment. Must remember to write things down.

Sorry I can't help just now, but I'll see if I can find how I did it and if I can I'll let you know.

Hi all Hightechs!

I also bought the wireless TP-LINK,TL-WN725N nano adapter. And after i install it by the userguide book. I can not find "wlan0", when i reboot. So becouse of that i think thats why i dont find any other wireless network with the command " sudo iwlist scan | less".

I got this 8188.ko file and put in my home pi directory but when i run this command " sudo apt-get install 8188.ko", it says " Could not find the packages".

I read in this forum that i must compile the file...how do i do that. Must i do so, if so in what laguages in c or in python. Or was it the kernel you guys ment. I got the kernel 3.6.11, witch the latest i think.

I be thankfull for a good answer or some of them.

Freindly regards SevenTOST

How do i proceed with this little wireless nano adapter.

Hi MrEngman and others !

Youre last reply function perfectly, thank you very much, iwlist scan | less
Worked and i found my router in the list.

But still in reboot i got som error messages... i write under

"
Configuration network interfaces... ioctl[SIOCSIWAP]: Operation not permitted¨
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument


"

What does this meen, is it becouse i dont no my "psk"?

I edit this file "sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces ", and in the and i added the lines...

"
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-conf /etc/wpa.conf
"

Then i edit the file, " sudo nano /etc/wpa.conf ", and there put in the lines...

"
network={
ssid=" My_SSID " #ssid that i no what it is
key-mgmt=WPA-PSK # I use wpa encryption on the router, with password
psk=" whats this " # What is psk, i can not find any, is it the password?

"

When i run iwconfig i dont get any ip adress... is it this so called psk.
That i dont no what it is?.

I realy want the wireless network to work..thats seem to be a lot of work..

The simplest way to get a connection is to only use /etc/network/interfaces and forget about wpa_supplicant (wpa.conf etc). Once you can get a connection then you could try experimenting with using wpa.conf if you want to.

Try this

Code: Select all

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid "Network-Name"
wpa-psk "Network-Password"
FYI psk is the network password.

Phew, what a pain but finally managed it.

For you guys using the TPLINK TL-WN725N V2 and raspbian who have updated recently to 3.10.18+ using rpi-update, and found the wifi no longer works, there is an updated driver available at https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/802 ... 111.tar.gz

It's only been tested with following version from 10 Nov. Not sure if it will work with the versions from 5, 6 or 7 Nov (#577, #579, or #585).

Code: Select all

Linux raspberrypi 3.10.18+ #587 Sun Nov 10 15:30:45 GMT 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux
Can be installed with the following commands

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/8188eu-20131111.tar.gz
tar -zxvf 8188eu-20131111.tar.gz
sudo install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/3.10.18+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
sudo insmod /lib/modules/3.10.18+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
sudo depmod -a
and a reboot would probably be a good idea.

You have the wrong version of the driver. Take a look here to check which one you need.
