MrEngman,

Thanks for your reply, I will test with my other Pi's model (2B, 3B, 3B+) and see how each behave.

Wifi keeps on dropping connection

Fri Jan 24, 2020 4:41 pm

Hello,

I updated the driver to my Pi4:

Code: Select all

Linux raspberrypi 4.19.95-v7l+ #1292 SMP Thu Jan 16 15:50:13 GMT 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux
I use it as wlan1 to be constantly connected to a mobile phone hotspot for internet connection, in my tests, the phone is 50 CM away from the dongle

when connected:
wlan1 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:"HotSpot" Nickname:"<[email protected]>"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: AA:DB:03:8E:7D:4C
Bit Rate:72.2 Mb/s Sensitivity:0/0
Retry:off RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Power Management:off
Link Quality=100/100 Signal level=56/100 Noise level=0/100
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
for most of the time, the connection keeps on dropping and disconnecting from the mobile phone, can you please point me to which logs/journalctl to troubleshoot this?

also, what does the Expired mean?

Many Thanks!

Hi all!

Code: Select all

Linux raspberrypi 4.19.66-v7+ #1253 SMP Thu Aug 15 11:49:46 BST 2019 armv7l GNU/Linux

Code: Select all

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 2357:0109 TP-Link TL WN823N RTL8192EU
Looking for drivers on the above. Can't seem to find anything even on provided links. Any help?

Try this

Code: Select all

wget http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/8192eu-drivers/8192eu-4.19.66-v7-1253.tar.gz
tar xzf 8192eu-4.19.66-v7-1253.tar.gz
./install.sh
As an alternative there is my script which will automatically determine the driver you need and install it

Code: Select all

sudo wget http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
Command sudo install-wifi -h will give details on using it. Command sudo install-wifi is the basic command which will determine the driver you need and install it.

MrEngman

Your install script worked flawlessly for me, once I found it.

I wanted to ask if I could add your script to an 3D Printing Raspbian based image called https://github.com/guysoft/OctoPi

It would make setting up non-supported wifi dongles super simple for their users.

In order to be able to add your script, I have a small admin task requiring your attention.

I would require that a software license be added to the download site at http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/

There are various licenses available for public domain software and github,com have created a website, https://choosealicense.com/licenses/ of which I have taken the liberty of selecting https://choosealicense.com/licenses/unlicense/ as a potential candidate, as I feel this best encompasses the spirit in which you have provided the script to everyone coming across this forum and related forums and blog posts, etc.

Looking forward to your thoughts in this regard.

Which tar did you use?
I'm trying to get this adapter to work with Octopi aswell (4.19 v7+) , but the install script always complains a file is missing.

The script is for use with the Raspbian OS.

It might help determine the issue if you can copy the output of the script showing the error.

EDIT: tar is whatever is included in the Raspbian image.

I got drivers running OK on my RasPi 2B, but everytime it reboots, driver does not load automatically, I have to run again "sudo install-wifi" to get wlan0 working properly.

How can I solve this?

Thanks in advance

What wifi are you using? Can you post the output you get when you run the install-wifi script. When you reboot can you post the output of commands

Code: Select all

lsusb
lsmod
ifconfig
May help figure out what is happening.

Dear Mr Engman,
You've made my day once again with a driver I desperately needed.
Thank you very much for the time and effort you keep on investing in this issue.
We would be up the creek without a paddle if it wasn't for you.

Please keep on helping us mere mortals out!

Tks,

Paulv

Thanks again to Mr Engman (your precompiled driver helps a lot).

But what I do not understand is, why is the latest driver which not integrated in the raspbian sources?

Mr Engman compiles the driver from lwfinger (https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu). But in the raspbian sources (https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/tr ... /rtl8188eu) they use a different (maybe deprecated) version.

Why are the not integrating the actual version there so that this driver does not need to be reinstalled again after every kernel update?
