New driver added for xenial_701-k4.5.2.

If would be nice to know if this vendor-based driver is still better than the in-kernel version.

Subject description: How to load the driver?
 

rcrsn51, hi,

I just buyed a wireless pendrive D-link DWA 123 YWA 123BR.....D1G for my laptop Parckard Bell which does not have wireless card.

I am on Precise Triton 573, kernel 3.9.11

So I downloaded and installed 8192cu_precise571-k3.9.11.pet.

When I list the usb devices the pendrive appears

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 2001:3310 D-Link Corp.

But is does not seem to be loaded.

After read many things on internet, inclusive here, I don't know how to do.

Peux-tu m'aider?

Thanks.

I looked up this device at wikidevi.com. It is NOT an rtl8192cu device - it needs the rtl8188eu driver.

This driver is not in the Precise 3.9.11 kernel yet, so the adapter was not detected.

Read here for a collection of 8188eu driver PETs.

Another driver added to the second group. With these new kernels, it appears that blacklisting the built-in rtl8192cu driver is REQUIRED.

Unfortunately, the kernel sources for these old Puppies have disappeared, unless someone else can find them.

I need them to build a new driver.

Merci for your answer. I have problems of screen when i switche the kernel (choosing a kernel for which a wireless 8182cu yet exist) .
Thanks for your useful help in lot of topics
KDE-Slax would be worth a new version. It's such a special Puppy !
Tahrpup ans slacko do quite the same, KDE-Slax is an other world.
I canuse it on my new computer without web, and i can use it on my old Acer , but too big for its little RAM..Cpu works hard, temperature get to 80° and in must stop before Fire Very Happy in my house

@Pelo -- to "bump" a thread is to post in it with little or no useful content, but by doing so bring it to the top of the thread list. Usually the point of a thread-bumping post is expressly to bring it to the top, so that people will be aware of it, since it's suddenly relevant again (at least to the one doing the bumping).

Many if not most forum-goers these days don't appreciate bumping particularly archaic threads (I think we know Embarassed ) and some forums even lock old threads after a certain time has passed with no new replies, specifically to prevent them being bumped.

Just in case (I'm pretty sure you know this already, but it's here in the event that I'm wrong) -- what's a thread? A thread is a series of posts under one heading. In other words, this specific set of posts that I'm adding to, to reply to you, is one thread.

PostPosted: Tue 09 Aug 2016, 19:44    Post subject: In 2015 i bought a CSL dongle to connect wireless better  

Understood. In 2015 i bought a CSL dongle to connect wireless better in a village where network is very weak, only at 20 kms from my house. so i browse the forum for drivers and rscrn51 answered usefully
But wireless is much better at home too with RTL8192CU driver.
I just change the kernel of My Puppy ToOppy to get it fitting with drivers provided here. And connection is much more stable;

Hi, Bill.

Just treated myself to a new USB adapter; a NetGear WNA3100M. It uses the 'rtl8192cu' chipset;-

https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_WNA3100M

.....so, accordingly, I did a wee bit of research, and found your thread here. I'm trying this out initially in Slacko 570 PAE, with the 3.10.32 kernel, so have downloaded and installed your pet package, and have blacklisted the in-kernel driver for same.

The adapter is recognised via 'Dougal's', and it asked if I wanted to add the driver to the list of known WPA supplicants; I OK'd it, since WPA is what I use.

On attempting to connect, I'm getting :-

'Unable to connect', and 'Details' says 'Failed to connect to wpa_supplicant - wpa_ctrl_open: No such file or directory'.

I seem to recall I had this same problem with the TP-Link WN-725N adapter on a couple of occasions, but I'm hanged if I can remember how I resolved it. This is now using your driver package, not the in-kernel one.....but I was getting the same response from that one, too.

Any advice, please?


Mike. Wink
