I compile the driver on 3.10.27 kernel.

The compilation is OK with the process https://github.com/macliu010/pi_plus/tr ... /rtl8188eu

when i use the lsusb -t command i have this result :
lsusb -t
/: Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=dwc_otg/1p, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 0, Class=hub, Driver=hub/3p, 480M
|__ Port 1: Dev 3, If 0, Class=vend., Driver=smsc95xx, 480M
|__ Port 3: Dev 4, If 0, Class=hub, Driver=hub/4p, 480M
|__ Port 2: Dev 6, If 0, Class=vend., Driver=r8188eu, 480M
|__ Port 3: Dev 8, If 0, Class=HID, Driver=usbhid, 1.5M
|__ Port 4: Dev 9, If 0, Class=HID, Driver=usbhid, 1.5M

I see the card with the good driver.

When i use iwconfig i have this result
wlan0 unassociated Nickname:"<WIFI@REALTEK>"
Mode:Auto Frequency=2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Sensitivity:0/0
Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality=0/100 Signal level=0 dBm Noise level=0 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

But I don't arrived to associate an accesspoint

when i try sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid "ton essid"

I have this result
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not permitted.


If you have an idea ? I'm very interesting

Thank it's OK for me.

Just a little bug. when my usb wifi card is plug on bottom usb port (near motherboard) some times i don't have wifi.
At this time if i plug a usb keyboard the wifi is ok and if i unplug the keyboard the wifi is out...

but if i plug the wifi card on top usb port it's all time good.

Very strange ???

Hi MrEngman

I arrived knowing nothing about how to configure my wifi, and followed all your advice on this forum and was eventually able to get it all up and running.
A big big Thank You!

Aarrghhhh!
I am tearing my hair out, (what little I have left) trying to get this **** wireless adaptor to work. I have tried following this and several other posts but always get tripped up. I am a Linux noob and trying to follow these directions is like trying to fix a Saturn 5 that won't go when your previous experience extends as far as lighting fireworks.
On this post if I try "uname -v" all I get is a message #632 PREEMPT and the system date and time.
I have followed other posts and managed at least to get Linux to see the adapter. However, if I do iwconfig all I get is :-
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
I have got hold of 8188eu.ko but cannot get the cp command to work -( what is the 'uname -r' meant to do?), failing with 'no such file or directory.
I'm too old to have to learn Linux from the ground up so does anyone know of a 'current' wireless adapter that does really 'work out of the box'? :evil:

Hello all,

I have problems with the TP link wifi stick TL-WN725N as well.... :-(
My kernel version is: 3.10.24+ #1 PREEMPT
I have downloaded 8188eu-20131219.tar.gz from the kind Mr Engman
I have extracted the files, and did:
Code: Select all
 sudo cp rtl8188eufw.bin /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
 sudo install -p -m 644 8188eu.ko /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless
 sudo insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko

This gives the following error message:
Error: could not insert module /lib/modules/3.10.24+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko: Invalid module format
I have searched for stray copies of the 8188 drivers, but this only gives:
Code: Select all
$ sudo find /lib -name "*8188*"
/lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8188eufw.bin
/lib/modules/3.10.24+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko

Does anybody have a clue about what may be wrong in my setup?

Thanks in advance, Jan Rekers

Hi Jan,

The drivers I have made available are for Raspbian.

The version of Linux you are using does not look to be Raspbian. You may need to find a version of the driver compiled for the image you are using.

Hmm... if I remember well, I have installed version "2014-01-07-wheezy-raspbian".
Is there a command to check for sure which version of the OS I have installed? The full output of uname -a is:
Code: Select all
Linux raspberrypi-wekker 3.10.24+ #1 PREEMPT Sat Dec 14 22:04:32 CET 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux

I have found out why I have this odd kernel version. That is because I have installed support for a TFT display (the notro/fbtft installation https://github.com/notro/fbtft/wiki) which instructed me to update the kernel with the command: sudo REPO_URI=https://github.com/notro/rpi-firmware rpi-update instead of the regular rpi-update command. Doing so, gives me kernel version 3.10.24+ #1 instead of 3.10.24+ #614.

Would anybody know how to end up with a kernel which has support for FBTFT and for which a proper version of 8188eu.ko exists?

Thanks, Jan Rekers

Hi MrEngman,
after searching for hours to get my wifi running, i finally found your thread. I just ran into the problem, that i can't get your berry-boot image properly working, because it's an outdated version.
Would it be possible for you to update your berry-boot image to the newest version including your driver?

Thank you very much in advance,
Michael

Just today bought a TP-LINK TL-WN725N v2. Using it on Raspbmc (xbmc) not sure what version.. uname -r was something like 3.10.24 #2 PREEMPT if that is helpful. I've managed to get it working, by doing the following:

sudo su -
wget http://raspishop.pl/downloads/8188eu.ko-raspbmc -O /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko
depmod -a
sed -i 's/^exit 0/modprobe 8188eu\nexit 0/' /etc/rc.local
reboot

taken from: http://raspishop.pl/info/tp-link-wn725n ... pberry_pi/

After trying literally EVERYTHING, and coming up against a lot of errors, this simple solution worked. After I did this, I simply went on to my raspberrry pi settings , turned wireless to wired, save..reboot... set wired back to wireless, put in details, rebooted again and it refreshed it all and now works fine.

Hope this is helpful to someone!

Well I have been having the same problem now with the TP-LINK TL-WN725N (v2) but when I downloaded the source and tried to compile it, it gave me this:
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ cd ~/rtl8188eu
pi@raspberrypi ~/rtl8188eu $ make
make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/3.10.36+/build M=/home/pi/rtl8188eu modules
make: *** /lib/modules/3.10.36+/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2
pi@raspberrypi ~/rtl8188eu $
--
Can someone help?
uname -a :
Linux raspberrypi 3.10.36+ #662 PREEMPT Fri Apr 4 18:31:16 BST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux
LOOK! A RAINBOW!!!
