Hi,

I would like to use realtek 802.11n or rtl8xxxu with openPLI 6.2, kernel v.4.10.12 on h5.2tc device, but I cannot find the proper driver. The device works well under ubuntu and GNU/linux in general with linux kernel at least 4.10 as described here. What can I do?
I already tried with:
opkg update
opkg install rtl8192eu

 

This is the boot log:

It looks like it loads the driver just fine, it just can't find the firmware. Which I added on March 24th: https://github.com/O...re-rtl8192eu.bb

 

You could try:

opkg install firmware-rtl8192eu

Thank you very much, it worked.

 

P.S.

Do you have any idea about how to solve also this issue?

What issue?

I had a similar issue with different USB wifi card TL-WN823N V2 or rtl8192eu with openPLI 6.x image.

You also answered there, but it still does not work. Do you have a further advice with respect to two months ago?

Thank you

No, I don't. The kernel dictates which drivers are supported, and which version of the driver.

 

In general, linux supports chipset drivers instead of vendor drivers, so when new vendors appear, the USB id of the new device needs to be added to the driver. Which is the reason older versions don't work even if the chipset driver is present.

I have another question. On standard GNU/linux operating system as ubuntu/debian/arch, the USB wifi card works well both with linux kernel 4.13.0-x and 4.10.0-x. OpenPLI 6.2 has linux kernel 4.10.12 and so it should have the proper driver. Does openPLI use different linux kernel i.e. with different driver support?

According to the defconfig in the BSP, the Zgemma H5 should have the rtl8xxxu driver as well?

Excellent

Nothing much we can do about, I'm afraid, it looks like the kernel module crashes on load.

Hello! I installed this image on my DM525 but I'm getting wrong SNR signal not in db but percentage something like five percent. Does anyone else experience the same? Thanks!

No, I don't. The kernel dictates which drivers are supported, and which version of the driver.

 

In general, linux supports chipset drivers instead of vendor drivers, so when new vendors appear, the USB id of the new device needs to be added to the driver. Which is the reason older versions don't work even if the chipset driver is present.

 

I have another question. On standard GNU/linux operating system as ubuntu/debian/arch, the USB wifi card works well both with linux kernel 4.13.0-x and 4.10.0-x. OpenPLI 6.2 has linux kernel 4.10.12 and so it should have the proper driver. Does openPLI use different linux kernel i.e. with different driver support?

Check with command lsmod on your PC and on the box if the same modules are loaded for your device.
