Hi,

I am having troubles getting the driver to work with the Archer T1U.
It would be awesome if you could take a look at the following logs:

I would be really thankful for all ideas on what could be the issue!

Cheers,
Martin

Hello.

@MrEngman; Wondering if you could compile a driver to work for ASUS USB-AC51, kernel 4.4.21-v7+ #911?

I've spent a week trying to up my wifi dongle.

Let me know if you need more info.

You are the best!!

With your wifi module connected to your Pi can you post the output of command lsusb to check the USB id it uses.

From the info I have it uses the mt7610 driver that I have already compiled.

I have a script which will automatically check the kernel version and wifi you are using and automatically download and install the correct driver. You can download and install the script using commands

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/install-wifi.tar.gz
tar xzf install-wifi.tar.gz
Command ./install-wifi -h will show the information on how to use the script.

For you current set up to load the driver it should just be sufficient to run command ./install-wifi

Mr. Engman,

I have a LinkPal AC600 wi-fi dongle that uses the MediaTek 7610u driver and my kernel is 4.4.27. I have followed every instruction in this thread several times over. I've tried rebooting. I've tried everything I can think of but I cannot get this dongle to work properly at either 2.4GHz or 5GHz. It does recognize my Access Point via SSID but does not allow me to connect to the internet or to enter my local network.

lsmod shows mt7610u_sta 895458 0
ifconfig shows wlan0 inet addr:192.168.0.27 RX packets: 8710 TX packets: 2382
uname -a shows Linux raspberrypi 4.4.27-v7+ #917 SMP Tue Oct 25 16:00:29 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux
Linux drivers are available at http://jmp.sh/BF2NPp5 which forwards to https://jumpshare.com/v/4FKwTRhEDKJQJ4BV8RT3 however the install routine will not run in Linux even though there are Linux drivers provided in the rar file


Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Bob

Hello Mr Engman.

I have been following your excellent support for USB wifi dongles.

I have an Archer T1u that I'm trying to get stood up under jessie lite on a raspberry Pi zero.

I have the following output

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ uname -a

I have tried running the script at:

and I receive a response:

Your wifi module is unrecognised.

Wondering if I have the correct script or if there is a newer script I should try?

Many Thanks for your support. Hope things are well.

Sorry about that. Looks like there was a problem with the script. Can you download it again and it should be OK now.

Hello again. Returning to this after a few days.

I ran the updated script again, with some success. The script detected the MT7610 device, downloaded the appropriate files, and reported success. I rebooted the Pi and lsusb still reported:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 05ac:1402 Apple, Inc. Ethernet Adapter [A1277]
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1a2c:0002 China Resource Semico Co., Ltd
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 2357:0105
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

There was no device name after the ID. I rebooted the system and ifconfig did report wlan0, but after entering the ssid and passkey of my 5Ghz router in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, lsusb failed to report 2357:0105 on any Bus or Device slot. repeated reboots yielded the same results.

I am wondering if the device should have shown a name through lsusb, or if the lack of a device name is an indicator of an issue with my process.

I will be starting from scratch and will report my findings, but if you have any thoughts on the lack of device name as an indicator of another issue, I would be interested in hearing so.

Thanks again so much for your support, it is greatly appreciated.

I have never

Hi,

Sorry about that. I've updated the driver and it needed install.sh updating. The install-wifi script has also been updated as determining the kernel version and build in certain circumstances had to be changed due to an update being made to how the kernel images are formatted.

If you download the driver again it should be OK now. My new install-wifi script can be downloaded and installed using commands

Code: Select all

sudo wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
The new script requires being run with sudo. For info on how to use it use

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi -h

MrEngman,

I've been reading through this forum and observing your incredible dedication to the community. On behalf of everybody here, a big hearty thank you.

I'm looking for a stable WiFi dongle that supports 5G and other forums suggested that the TP-Link AC450 Archer T1U is one of the rare RPi supported dongles that support 5G. Alas, when I got it, I have been unable to track down drivers. I think that I'm very close having stumbled into your 'install-wifi' script, but you don't have a driver that supports the kernal revision / build of my device.

Would it be too incredibly inconvenient to ask how to assemble this driver or get you to build one for me? Here's the output from your script. Please let me know if I can provide anything else.

Cheers,
David

My previous post was using a recent Raspbian Jessie Lite image (can't remember Sep or Nov).

I just attempted again using the full Raspbian image (2016-11-25-raspbian-jessie.img). This time it looked like your script was about to be successful, however I got errors in the install.

Code: Select all

rm: cannot remove âmt7610*â: No such file or directory
modprobe: FATAL: Module mt7610 not found.
After reboots and reinstalls, it appears to work, however 5GHz networks do not show up in the UI SSID dropdown scan list.

Ideas?

The kernel version and build you show doesn't look like a normal Raspbian. I have not seen a build #3 for kernel 4.4.9-v7+ and so there is no driver. I would expect builds #883 or #884. Tried on a Pi here with Raspbian 4.4.9-v7+ #884 and installs the driver OK.

The driver should be installed OK. For whatever reason the format of the mt7610 driver keeps being changed and keeping this up to date is a bit of a pain so errors can appear occasionally.

I don't have a TP-Link Archer T1U but do have an Archer T2U using the MT7610 driver. That sees 5GHz APs using command sudo iwscan wlan0 scan and is currently connected to a 5GHz AP.

There is a new script which shouldn't give the errors you see and if it gets updated it will automatically update itself. You can download and install it using commands

Code: Select all

sudo wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
You will need to run the script using sudo install-wifi ..... Command sudo install-wifi -h will show help info.

I really don't understand why you are getting the errors you have if you have in fact installed Raspbian Jessie lite 2016-11-25. As it is kernel version 4.4.37-v7+ #930 the file /lib/modules/4.4.34-v7+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless does exist, or should, so why the error? I am really confused.

Just to test things out I created a new SD card using Raspbian Jessie lite 2016-11-25 and copied files ssh and wpa_supplicant.conf to the boot partition to enable SSH and configure the wifi when the Pi first booted. I inserted the card into my Pi 2B, connected my wifi module to the Pi and powered on the Pi. After it had booted up I then SSHed into the Pi which was connected to my network using a wired connection and first changed the password as recommended here

Code: Select all

SSH is enabled and the default password for the 'pi' user has not been changed.
This is a security risk - please login as the 'pi' user and type 'passwd' to set a new password.
and and then downloaded and installed the file install-wifi using commands

Code: Select all

sudo wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
I then ran the command sudo install-wifi and it installed the wifi driver with no errors.

Code: Select all

After a short delay the wifi started up and connected to my network without problems.

Just a thought. Which directory are you in when running the install-wifi script. You should be in your default home directory, /home/pi. Or have you changed user name and it may not be correctly set up? Or are you logging in as root? Whether any of these will cause a problem I don't know but I guess it could be a possibility.

sudo wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
command provided above, make sure you use a uppercase letter "O". I was using a lowercase letter "o" at first, and those two have a very different outcome. Look at

wget --help

Third, after getting the driver loaded following MrEngman's directions above, my new 5GHz WiFi dongle was named "rename4". Reading through MrEngman's and epoch1970's comments in this post viewtopic.php?f=29&t=55527 led me to the fact that this new driver had created a new device rule, located at /etc/udev/rules.d/95-ralink.rules . There is only one line in this file, which was specifying that my new 5GHz WiFi dongle be named "wlan0". That of course conflicted with the onboard 2.4GHz WiFi device on the RPi 3B, so the 5GHz dongle was being named "rename4" instead.

All I had to do was edit the one line in the /etc/udev/rules.d/95-ralink.rules file from

Code: Select all

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="net", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="ra*", NAME="wlan0"
to

Code: Select all

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="net", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="ra*", NAME="wlan1"
Reboot and it worked!
