I think jmn is probably correct. Check the version of 3.10.24+ you have. Use the command uname -a and I think it will show

Linux raspberrypi 3.10.24+ #614 PREEMPT Thu Dec 19 20:38:42 GMT 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux
3.10.24+ #614 uses driver 8188eu-20131219.tar.gz

THANK YOU SO MUCH (Muchísimas Gracias) MrEngman. Now it is flashing , and it´s visible when I write "ifconfig", now I have to configure it. Again, thanks a lot, you have made it reality.
Regards.

I am trying to install a TL WN725N on my new raspberry Pi.
I am in 3.6.11 #538 with a WN725N 0bda:8179.

I have installed 8188eu from 8188eu-20130830.tar.gz.

I can see wifi networks, and my Box, can connect but is not able to have an IP address. I tried with fixed IP, does not work. I have installed Wicd to help the management of wifi and network, no improvement.
Any clue ?

I would like to have confirmation for file: rtl8188eufw.bin is this file required for my version? It is not provided in the tar.gz file: 8188eu-20130830.tar.gz ...
Should I use one ? which one ? I tried to install the one from 20131113 with no success.

Thanks!
Hi phl1,

You do not need the firmware file rtl8188eufw.bin with that version of the driver. That is why it is not included in the tar.gz file.

I have never used wicd to control my wifi and I do not usually use wpa_supplicant.conf either. I find it much simpler to just use file /etc/network/interfaces.

This is the format I normally use

Code: Select all

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid "Your-Network-Name"
wpa-psk "Your-Network-Password"
To use a fixed IP use the following format

Code: Select all

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet static
address 192.168.1.10
network 192.168.1.0
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.1.255
gateway 192.168.1.254
wpa-ssid "network name"
wpa-psk "network password"
The important parts are the address and gateway - your routers address. You will need to select addresses according to your own network. These are just an example.

It's a good idea to reboot after making any changes to the network configuration or you could possibly use the commands

Code: Select all

sudo ifdown --force wlan0
sudo ifup --force wlan0

Hi MrEngman,

I've got my TP-Link working after following the instructions for 3.10.24+ but after a reboot of the Raspberry the wlan0 interface has disappeared again.
After redoing the last commands below my wlan0 is back up again.
Any suggestions on how to make wlan0 available after a reboot ?

sudo insmod /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko

Hmm? I've heard mention of a similar sort of problem before. It may be trying to load an older driver version, although I'm not sure. Do a search for all copies of the file 8188eu.ko and delete all except for /lib/modules/3.10.24+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko.

To find all copies of 8188eu.ko use the command

Code: Select all

sudo find / -name 8188eu.ko
This should generate a list of all the 8188eu.ko files. Delete all copies except /lib/modules/3.10.24+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8188eu.ko. Then reboot and try again. You will probably need to run the insmod and depmod commands again.

Just a thought but you should probably check the file /etc/network/interfaces to make sure the wlan0 section starts with allow-hotplug wlan0 or auto wlan0, just in case.

That did the trick! There where a few extra 8188eu.ko files floating around. Removing them made the wlan0 interface stick around after a reboot!
Thanks a lot for the great help!!

Just wanted to say thank you for the continued compilation for the driver for the tl-wn725n v2! I am very new to this, had successfully installed for Occidentalis. Then I updated, and the kernel changed to 3.10.24+. I have now updated the driver once again and everything is working very well. Your instructions are clear and have been a good source of motivation over this end of year tech break.

Thanks MrEngman!

Hi MrEngman

Thanks for all the work you put into keeping this driver up todate. :-)
I have used it for sometime as an wifi accesspoint on an older kernelversion with no problems.
I use a TL-WN723N V3 that is the same as TL-WN725N V2 (0BDA:8179)
I have just installed a fresh image of raspbian (2013-12-20-wheezy) (kernel 3.10.24+ #614),and installed the driver version 8188eu-20131219.tar.gz and I can list my wifi networks fine with iwlist.

But when I install hostapd from http://jenssegers.be/blog/43/realtek-rt ... spberry-pi it failes to startup hostapd. This is the same version that I had working previously with the same configuration file and wifi dongle:

Code: Select all

wget https://github.com/jenssegers/RTL8188-hostapd/archive/v1.1.tar.gz
tar -zxvf v1.1.tar.gz 
cd RTL8188-hostapd-1.1/hostapd
sudo make
sudo make install
When I try to start the hostapd it result in the following:

Hi sveneb,

Thanks for your comments about the driver.

I tried to set mine up as an AP a week or two ago and had problems as well and couldn't get it to work. I used the hostapd source included with the 8188eu driver source code I use to compile the driver which is available at https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu.

I'll have another look and see if I can get it running again as I have had it working some time ago with on an older version of Linux.

I'm not sure what's going on here but the download command wget is either storing the file in some other directory or is not actually doing the download because the remaining commands are reporting errors that the files needed do not exist. What do you see if you run the command ls. It should show the file in the directory.

I usually do not use the gui and run directly from a text terminal but I tried using startx and running the LXTerminal and had no problem with downloading

I downloaded the file and tried to untar it and everything was OK. I didn't continue with the install because the driver is already install but I expect it would install without problems and the remaining commands would be OK as the files needed are present.

It is behaving as though the file 8188eu-20131223.tar.gz does not exist, at least not where it should be. Try downloading again. What do you see if you use the command ls after doing the download and before running tar -xzvf ....

If you see the file 8188eu-20131223.tar.gz then try the tar -xzvf and see what happens to that command. You should see three filenames listed as the files are untarred from 8188eu-20131223.tar.gz.

Thank you very much for this driver and guide on how to get my TL-WN725N V2 working on Rasbian !
It took me several days of reading on several forums and fiddling around with my Rasberry to get this stick (V2) working on Rasbian 3.10.24. This was the only place that gave correct information on how to get it working. THANK YOU !
I hereby wish all the best to you and all 'Raspberians' out there for 2014 !

(proud owner of 3 Raspberries (B), one as dedicated XBMC mediaplayer, connected to TV with plex-plugin making use of OVM as Plexserver on a HP Proliant witch holds all the media, one running squeezeplug as LMS Spotify streamer, and finally a wireless one thanks to MrEngman that will be used during the summer outside during bbq's as a sqeezelite player for spotify and occasional movie projections with a beamer.) Why buy an expensive audio/video/multiroom system if you can make it all by yourself using an magnificent piece of hardware called 'Raspberry' and some willpower to get it all working...

attached is an updated version of the "automatic download and install script": version information is fetched directly from the initial post in this topic, and firmware is systematically installed if present in tarball. Use install-8188eu.sh to download and install the proper driver for the rpi you run from. Use install-8188eu.sh -k <kernel build> to select the closest available driver version in case no exact match is found for the local kernel. install-8188eu.sh -l shows a list of available driver versions.

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ ./install-8188eu.sh -h
usage: install-8188eu.sh [-k|--kernel <kernel build>] [-l|--list]

UPDATE: fixed version of the script attached.
INSTALL: pi@raspberrypi ~ $ curl -s http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/download/file.php?id=5536 | tar xz

Hi LaFambe,

Really clever. I like it.

Just tried it with the lastest update 02/01/2014 #618 and it makes things really easy.

Must make sure I keep the post updated when kernel versions get updated.

Thanks ! Glad if this can help. Fell free to advertise this install method in the head of the topic if/when you deem appropriate. I would suggest pointing directly to the (latest) tgz attachment (http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/downl ... hp?id=5536), to keep things stupid simple and in one place, but you may as well upload the script to your dropbox; or I can create a github project.

Option -k provides a way to cope with ever-changing kernel builds, but we could instruct the script to guess the nearest compatible tarball.

Just want to add myself to the folk thanking you for these incredibly helpful instructions - and the downloads themselves of course!

I have exactly the same problem as poogle and I find no solution on the forum, any idea?
I use the driver rtl8188eu drivers for 03.10.25 + provided by MrEngman
http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 82#p462982

The dongle works well as a client but I can not run in AP


Please help me before i throw out the pi across the room!! ;)
There have been a number of people trying to get the WN725N V2 and similar devices working as an AP. I haven't seen anything specific for the rtl8188eu driver but this may help although you will probably need to use the hostapd module that comes with the rtl8188eu driver source available here.
