PostPosted: Tue 22 May 2012, 23:49    Post_subject:  Asus USB-N13 Drivers do not work  

I've tried the different rt3370sta drivers from "Drivers for Puppy 5.1-5.2.8 with 2.6.33.2 kernel" in the Drivers section of the forum. However, none of them have worked. Any suggestions?

What does

Code:
cat /proc/bus/usb/devices


show for the wireless chip for that wifi usb?

Also HardInfo and PupScan in Menu should show chip also. Maybe a different driver may be in order.

Also what Puppy Linux version and kernel. Full or frugal install.

So I'm looking for a Realtek driver then?

Just to be sure, since you did not provide a link to where you got the pets from.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=481085#481085

Also. After installing driver, and then did a reboot. Did you
Code:
ifconfig -a

in terminal to see if a wireless interface showed in readout before determining that the driver did not work. You did not tell us how you determined that the driver did not work in your thread. No details.

Maybe you are having trouble with Dougal Network Manager or Barrys simple network manager instead. That is why I suggest checking with ifconfig -a command first.

Code:
 ifconfig -a
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr<filtered>
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr <filltered>
          inet addr:<filtered>  Bcast:<filtered>  Mask:255.255.255.0
          inet6 addr: <filtered> Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:11153 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:6643 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:7586093 (7.2 MiB)  TX bytes:1058342 (1.0 MiB)


wlan0 is my wireless card which is pcmcia instead of usb working which means the driver loaded. eth0 is landline.

Also you never answered my question what Pupscan and showed for the exact chip number for that usb device also.

So your USB device ID is 0b05:17ab. This is a very recent wifi chipset, not supported by the Realtek 8712u and 8192cu wifi drivers I provided for Lucid-Puppy here -
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=462469#462469

You will need to move up to a more recent kernel, which will include the latest rtl8192cu driver.
Slacko 5.3.3 would be a good candidate.

Thank you jedi master tempestuous.

I looked at

http://wiki.debian.org/rtl819x

but did not know if you had built the pet packages available on that or one was available or not. So I did not mention it.

I installed Slacko 5.3.3 However it is still not detected. I tried loading rtl8192cu through the network wizard, but it was still not detected.
Code:
ifconfig -a
just does a loopback

Is there anything else I can try?

OK, Google tells me this new driver requires external firmware ... groan!
Firmware now attached.
After installing this dotpet, reboot, and try the Network Wizard again.
If still no success, run the "dmesg" command and look for clues about how the rtl8192cu driver loaded.

I tried the firmware, still didn't work. I checked through dmesg

All I found were
Code:
[    1.466719] usb 1-1: new full speed USB device number 2 using uhci_hcd
[    1.604098] usb 1-1: config 1 interface 0 altsetting 0 has 0 endpoint descriptors, different from the interface descriptor’s value: 4
[    1.624082] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0b05, idProduct=17ab
[    1.624101] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[    1.624116] usb 1-1: Product: 802.11n WLAN Adapter
[    1.624129] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Realtek
[    1.624141] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 00e04c000001


This is it recognizing the device on startup, right?

Code:
[  729.361726] cfg80211: Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain
[  729.509351] usbcore: registered new interface driver rtl8192cu

This is what it shows when I load the module. However network devices aren't detected afterward.

You need to investigate whether the rtl8192cu driver is definitely compatible with your device ID, by running this command -
Code:
modinfo rtl8192cu

In the lines which start with "alias" see if your device ID (0b05:17ab) is listed. The line will look like this -
Code:
usb:v0B05p17ABd*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*
