Just been trying the new NetGear adapter out in Tahr 6.05. Connected flawlessly, and being the first dual-band one I've used, I couldn't help noticing how much faster it seems to download on the 5 GHz waveband.....

Quite impressed. And dead 'chuffed', too! Any ideas why the Tahr in-kernel driver works straight-away, where even your version of the 'rtl8192cu' driver is having problems connecting in 570?

Is there an external driver for the 8192 that will work for Slacko64 v6.3.2? I get a fairly decent connection via my ASUS dongle but no matter what I do it will drop connection every 5 minutes or so. Very annoying if you are trying to watch streaming videos on YouTube or Amazon Prime. I have found that by downloading a large file I can maintain connection for the length of the download but that gets old.

I see the pet for Slacko 6.3 but I assume that is only for the 32bit version. That won't work with the 64bit version will it?

I am currently running the PeasyWiFi v4.1 app as I am easily able to reconnect with that app and if I scan and check my routers details it immediately reconnects to both the router and the internet. Without Peasy it would connect to the router but could take as long as 5 minutes to reconnect to the internet.

Currently I am getting about 44 to 48 out of 70 signal strength with Peasy verses only 36/70 for the built in connection manager.

Any way, is there a driver for Slacko64 v6.3.2 and the 8192? I finally got the latest versions of Chrome and FireFox working with Slacko64 installed to my 32GB microSD card and everything is running very fast & smooth with the exception of the lost connections.

Appreciate all the shared info and for any help that might be offered.

Welcome Mate.

As I'm on 630/k4.1.11, confirm the kernel 632 runs: uname -r

Different? Run the command "lsmod | grep 8192"

If it shows "rtl8192cu" (referenced in the opening post), take a crack @ compiling the source pkg from github.

Of the three or so listed, go with the most recent >> https://github.com/pvaret/rtl8192cu-fixes

You'll need the devx and kernel src pkgs loaded by Slacko's SFS_Manager.

Bonjour,
Thanks rcrsn51 for these pets!
Question (silly?): can these drivers be directly included inside the zdrv sfs of the corresponding distributions iso file? And if yes, is there any precaution to take?

Cordialement.

@ElvesBrew: There is now an 8192cu driver PET posted for Slacko64-6.3.2 (page 1, group2).

Regarding dropouts - there are some suggestions in the main post.

@Argolance: I don't have any experience with inserting another driver into the zdrv.

Hello rcrsn51,

a few months ago, you helped me a lot with a external realtek wifi modem problem on a Packard Bell laptop. It was great.

I am now with another problem with a Sony Viaio, with Precise Triton 5.7.3, which Wifi deconnects all the time (wifi modem is internal, I am not using an external one). And it is not a problem from the wifi router. When you helped me with my PB, I downloaded the stay-connected-1.2.pet, that I never used.

I that the one which would resolve this deconnection?

Merci d'avance pour ton aide précieuse,

Please identify your internal WiFi adapter. There may be options that will keep it connected.

Run the command: lspci -nnk
Locate the section for Network Controller.

The simplest thing to try first would be stay-connected from here.

Thank you for your quick answer,

I read the other post and I resolved to use the stay-connected-1.2.pet.

Differently from the other guy, when the wifi desconnects, I just have to "redémarrer le réseau sans fil" and it connects again. It is simple but bothering.

I'll be back to tell you if the pet resolved the problem.

Merci.

Hi, I would like to use RTL8192CU with Slacko 5.6
Is there an appropriate driver please?
Code:
# uname -r
3.4.52


EDIT : looking more closely at this (and other) threads it looks as if I could try a kernel swap - but at this stage I am wary of using an inappropriate kernel (eg, PAE/nonPAE, 32bit/64bit). I believe I am using 32bit nonPAE kernel currently (but only 99.9% sure on the nonPAE)

Slacko 56 predates the new, simple method of swapping kernels.

I have some of the Slacko 56 devx/kernel source packages for the two versions, but I am not really interested in tracking down the missing ones.

But IIRC, 8192cu adapters work with ndiswrapper and Slacko has the required kernel module.
