So you have version D1 of the TRENDnet TEW624UB and it uses the kernel module rtl8192cu.

1. Go to the folder /lib/firmware/rtlwifi

2. Delete the file rtl8192cufw.bin (if it is present)

3. Leave this window open.

4. Go to the folder /lib/modules/all-firmware/rtlwifi/lib/firmware/rtlwifi

5. Drag the file rtl8192cufw.bin into the first window

6. Close the windows.

7. Unplug/replug the adapter.

I've got a couple of different rtl files. None that are named rtl8192cufw.bin but a couple named rtl8192cufw_A.bin and rtl8192cufw_B.bin.

I'm tempted to drag both of them to the /lib/firmware/rtlwifi directory. A good idea or no?

Move them all. What Slacko version are you using: 5.7-non-PAE or 5.7.0-PAE? The first one was known to be wonky.

Ugh.

I have 5.7-NO-pae. Will move them all but don't mind grabbing the PAE version.

I gave it another try. With both windows open, it appears that when I delete the rtl8192cufw.bin file from one, it deletes them from both. Also, when I tried moving rtl8192cufw_A.bin and rtl8192cufw_B.bin, I see that they reside in both directories. Moving or copying them gives me an error ("Can't move a file to itself" more or less). And like before, deleting them from one deletes them from both.

At this point, I think I'll just get a Slacko-approved USB adapter unless the PAE version of 5.7 is the way to go.

If you switch to Slacko 57 PAE, you can try the vendor version of rtl8192cu from here. It does not have firmware problems.

Evening,all.

Have recently started using obprecise 14.07.26 Chromebook Pup. Brilliant distro; works extremely well on my desktop PC, connecting via Ethernet.

I'd love to install this on my old Dell laptop. I've tried the LiveCD on the Dell (an elderly Inspiron 1100 ), and it works perfectly. I'm already running Tahrpup 6.02 on the 1100, and it's just amazing. I connect via a TP-Link WN725-N wireless adapter (v.2) using the Realtek RTL8188EUS chipset, and the r8188eu driver for this is included in Tahrpup by default.

rcrsn51 has already let me have a Slacko 5.70 version of this driver (many thanks for that). Is it possible that there's a version of this driver floating around that would work in Chromebook Pup? Failing that, would it be possible to add this driver module to the OS by some other means?

It uses the 3.9.11 PAE kernel.


Regards,

Mike. Smile

OK, so I switched to 5.7 PAE. It does see my network and connected successfully .... but only once.

Now, even though all other systems in the house can access it correctly, when I try to connect, I get "No Internet connection available".

Any hints or suggestions? Or should I try a better adapter?

Evening, all.

NetGear 'RangeMax' WPN-511 wireless 'card'.
Works in: Tahrpup 6.05, Slacko 5.7.0, Lucid 5.2.8.7, Precise 5.7.1 & X-Slacko 2.3.2.
PCMCIA card
Chipset: Atheros AR5005GS (Source - Wiki_Devi https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_WPN511_v1 )
Driver: 'ath5k', built-in to most current-gen Pups.
Supports: 802.11 b/g (both work)
Security: WPA2
Configured with both SNS/'Dougal's'

Excellent value for just £5.99 off eBay. Despite being old-fashioned, there appears to be no end of these, brand-new, still floating around the web. Good range; works very well with our BT router's triple-MIMO array, and still reports a strong signal down the very bottom of our back garden, where my TP-Link 'nano' adapter is just starting to drop off. Connects easily via SNS or 'Dougal's' Network Wizard. Thoroughly recommended if you have an available PCMCIA slot. The 'ath5k' driver has seemingly been around since, like.....forever!

Evening, again. Thought I'd best list my other adapter.....both of which are used on a 2003-vintage Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop; 2.6 GHz P4, 1 GB RAM, 32 GB Transcend IDE/PATA SSD.

TP-Link WN725N (v.2)
Works in: Tahrpup 6.03, ETP's 'Chromebook' Pup, Slacko 5.7.0 PAE, and X-Slacko 2.3.2.
USB 'nano' adapter
Chipset: Realtek R8188EUS
Driver: 'r8188eu' (native in Tahrpup; courtesy of cimarron, with some instruction from tempestuous, in 'Chromebook'; and courtesy of Bill (rcrsn51) in 'Slacko' 5.7.0, X-Slacko 2.3.2 & Slacko64 630). Many thanks to all concerned.
Supports: 802.11 b/g/n (all work).
Security: WPA2
Configured with: SNS, & 'Dougal's'

Excellent USB 'nano' adapter. Good value for money: average £9.99 in the UK. Good range; doesn't suffer from dropouts. Superb build quality. Thoroughly recommended.

Subject description: WEP, WPA, not WPA2
 

http://keesan.freeshell.org/puppy/gigafast-wf729-aex-xp-ndis.zip

I packaged and uploaded a zip file of
mrv8335.inf 21K
MRV8335XP.sys 265K

extracted from about 4MB of exe file from driverguide which I could find no
way to unpackage and had to install in MicroXP (where it does not work because
of no wifi support) and it required an internet connection to install which meant
I had to get an ethernet card working in XP first.

In MicroXP it said to disable the Windows wireless zero utility to use
its own configuration utility, which then insisted the card was unplugged.

The card works well with ndiswrapper in lupu 5.2.5. From 2005, pre WPA2.

Made by Marvell Libertas. 54MBps.

Gigafast Wireless 802.11B/G
Cardbus Adapter
WF729-AEX
Made in China

Gigafast of course no longer has the driver.
Only Driverguide. Links at other places are broken.

Puppy Search found nothing for wireless or wifi.

Evening, all.

NetGear WNA-3100M mini-adapter
Works in: Tahrpup 6.05, Tahr64 6.05, Lucid 5.2.8.7, X-Slacko 2.3.2 & Slacko64 6.3.0.....in fact, it just seems to work in everything!
USB mini-dongle
Chipset: RealTek RTL8192CU (Source - Wiki_Devi https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_WNA3100M )
Driver: 'rtl8192cu', built-in to most current-gen Pups. This is, however, 'broken' in some. There are some updated drivers available from here. As Bill says, it appears that the in-kernel driver is apparently well-known for being a bit 'wonky'..!
Supports: 802.11 b/g/n (all work)
Security: WPA2
Configured with both SNS/'Dougal's'

Superb value wireless adapter from NetGear as usual. To be frank, I've yet to find an adapter of theirs that doesn't just 'work'. Excellent range, and reports an extremely strong signal (the full 70db in pWidget's wireless signal widget). Connects easily via SNS.....fast becoming my favourite for ease of use. Thoroughly recommended.

Mike. Wink
