Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

Can I just check - working ok for squeeze (various kernels), NOT curently working for wheezy.

To get a Micronet SP907NS adaptor working with a WEP (not WPA) enabled wireless network, I had to run the script as per the instructions, then, when the adaptor would not get a DHCP address (because it was not connected to the access point) Ctrl-C to quit the script and edit /etc/network/interfaces and replace:

wpa-ssid "YourSSID"
wpa-psk "YourPassword"

with:

wireless-essid YourSSID
wireless-key YourPassword

Note there are no quotation marks used in the WEP version. The adaptor will not connect to the AP with the quotes in place.

Hi Texy,

I now have the rtl8188cus wifi running on wheezy. The setup is the same as for squeeze. There is just one problem with wheezy - wpa_supplicant is not installed. Installing that and all is now running.

I have made a script that runs on the base wheezy image and is here.

If you have no wired internet connection to the Pi you will need to download 5 files to some other system, the driver and 4 files needed to install wpa_supplicant and then copy all the files and the script to the /boot directory when you make the SD card image. The files needed are

Code: Select all

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/80256631/8192cu-20120611.tar.gz
http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/pool/main/w/wpa/wpasupplicant_1.0-2_armel.deb
http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/pool/main/p/pcsc-lite/libpcsclite1_1.8.3-3_armel.deb
http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/pool/main/libn/libnl3/libnl-genl-3-200_3.2.7-2_armel.deb
http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian/pool/main/libn/libnl3/libnl-3-200_3.2.7-2_armel.deb
So make the SD card image and copy all the files and the script to the /boot partition. Put the card in the Pi, boot up,login and run through the initialisation and then reboot to allow the main partition to be re-sized. Login and then run the script

Code: Select all

sudo /boot/install-wheezy-rtl8188cus-20120619.sh
When the script finishes insert the wifi adapter and the Pi will reboot. The wifi should be running and you can then run

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
to update the firmware and wheezy code.

If you have a wired connection to the Pi the install is pretty much the same except you only need to copy the installation script to the SD card. Let the Pi run and initialise then reboot and re-size the main partition. Restart the Pi and run the script

Code: Select all

sudo /boot/install-wheezy-rtl8188cus-20120619.sh
When the installation is finished it will ask you to plug in the wifi adapter and unplug the wired connection and will then reboot. The wifi should run and you can then run the update as above to upgrade the firmware and software.

Hope this is useful. Would be a good idea to include wpa_supplicant in the wheezy image. Would save a bit of head scratching. :)

OK, so the question has to be asked... has anyone tried the latest (install-wheezy-rtl8188cus-20120619.sh) script with the new 'beta' release of 'wheezy' which has just been released, and if so, does it work OK?

(Debian Wheezy 'beta' download can be found on the front page of http://www.raspberrypi.org/ )

Seems like the beta version has just been put up on the web site so I'm downloading it and will try it as well shortly.

You da man ;)

I look forward to trying it tonight - perhaps with an even later script if needed, in lieu of todays beta wheezy release.
Once again, many many thanks for your hard work - I am in great awe of your skills ;)

Re: Automatic setup for RTL8188CUS based wifi adapters

OK, I've tried the beta version of wheezy and well - I have the rtl8188cus wifi working. :D No problems with wpa_supplicant this time.

It uses the same driver version used with the latest version of squeeze.

Code: Select all

8192cu-20120617.tar.gz
The files needing modification are the normal ones used with the same content as is used with squeeze.

Code: Select all

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
/etc/modules
/etc/network/interfaces
and the standard command to install the driver modules is used

Code: Select all

install -p -m 644 8192cu.ko /lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/

so we don't need the script with wheezy then? Sorry, I'm a bit confused :? But downloading wheezy as I type. 8-)

(Edit: Ah I read back a few posts and see there is a new script - gonna try that out)

For those of you with tired fingers, sorry the filename is a little long, here is a script to add the rtl8188cus driver to the wheezy beta.

If you have a wired internet connection you can just download the script to the /boot directory

Code: Select all

sudo wget -O /boot/install-wheezy-beta-rtl8188cus-20120619.sh http://dl.dropbox.com/u/80256631/install-wheezy-beta-rtl8188cus-20120619.sh
or download to the current directory, using the link above, and move it to the /boot directory, as the script expects to be run from the /boot directory,

Code: Select all

sudo mv install-wheezy-beta-rtl8188cus-20120619.sh /boot
and then run it.

Code: Select all

sudo /boot/install-wheezy-beta-rtl8188cus-20120619.sh
If you don't have an internet connection to your Pi download the script and driver, which is here, onto another machine and then copy both to the /boot directory of the SD card image and run the script. When done the Pi will reboot and the wifi should be up and running.

That worked an absolute treat. The only deviation from your excellent instructions was that I needed to

Code: Select all

sudo chmod 755 install-wheezy-beta-rtl8188cus-20120619.sh
before the script would execute for the pi user (even with sodu)

Good to hear it's working.

Strange about the permissions though. No matter how I get the file to the /boot directory it always seems to end up with permissions set to 755 like all the other files there.

How are you moving the file to your /boot directory? I'm curious. Yet another Linux oddity.

I think I did the wget straight from the /boot directory - that might explain it. To me, it was easier to go to the right place first and then use a shorter command - well it would've been shorter if I hadn't had to chmod. :lol:

How are you moving the file to your /boot directory? I'm curious. Yet another Linux oddity.
I think I did the wget straight from the /boot directory - that might explain it. To me, it was easier to go to the right place first and then use a shorter command - well it would've been shorter if I hadn't had to chmod. :lol:
Tried that, cd'ed into /boot, and then I had to use sudo wget otherwise it wouldn't save the file. Gave an error "Cannot write to ...... (permission denied) if I didn't use sudo. And again it ends up with permissions 775. Oh well. :?:

Pretty sure I did sudo it too. But hey - these things called computers don't always do the same as each other - and humans are worse. :lol:
