wireless linux driver problems
 
wireless driver for linux not working ( help please)
*



I tried using Vista x86 and x64 drivers with ndiswrapper. Neither

appeared to work.I thought I had to use ndiswrapper, but as I was

browsing around the web to find the windows driver, I found a linux

driver, so I began to follow the directions, but got stuck while

running a command didn't work. I have no experience with wireless in

Linux.

RTL8185 Linux Driver v1027.0823.2007 for linux kernel 2.6



* - Support Client mode for either infrastructure or adhoc mode

* - Support WEP and WPAPSK/WPA2PSK connection



================================================== =============================================

< Component >

The driver is composed of several parts:

* * (1)source code

* * * * rtl8185.tar.gz

* * * * stack.tar.gz



* * (2)Script ot build the modules

* * * * makedrv



* * (3)Script to load/unload modules

* * * * wlan0up

* * * * wlan0down



* * (4)Script and configuration for DHCP

* * * * wlan0dhcp

* * * * ifcfg-wlan0



* * (5)Supplicant source code

* * * * wpa_supplicant-0.4.9.tar.gz



* * (6)Example of supplicant configuration file

* * * * wpa1.conf









< Installation >

Running the scripts can finish all operations of building up modules

from source code and start the nic:



* * * * (1)Build up the driver from the source code

* * * * * * * * ./makedrv



* * * * (2)Load the driver module to kernel and start up nic

* * * * * * * * ./wlan0up

* * * * * (if "insmod: error inserting 'r8180.ko': -File exists." met,

* * * * * * * * ./wlan0rmv

* * * * * * * * ./wlan0down

* * * * * * * * ./wlan0up

* * * * * * should be OK.

* * * * * )

* * * * (3)Refer to < Set wireless lan MIBs > to set Wireless LAN

specific parameters.











< Set wireless lan MIBs >

This driver uses Wireless Extension as an interface allowing you to set

Wireless LAN specific parameters.



Current driver supports "iwlist" to show the device status of nic



* * * * iwlist wlan0 [parameters]

where



* * * * parameter explaination* * * * * [parameters]

* * * * -----------------------* * * * -------------

* * * * Show available chan and freq* * freq / channel

* * * * Show and Scan BSS and IBSS* * * scan[ning]

* * * * Show supported bit-rate* * * * rate / bit[rate]

* * * * Show Power Management mode* * * power



For example:



* * * * iwlist wlan0 channel

* * * * iwlist wlan0 scan

* * * * iwlist wlan0 rate

* * * * iwlist wlan0 power





Driver also supports "iwconfig", manipulate driver private ioctls, to set MIBs.



* * * * iwconfig wlan0 [parameters] [val]

where



* * * * parameter explaination* * * [parameters]* * * * * * * * [val]

constraints

* * * * -----------------------* * -------------

------------------

* * * * Connect to AP by address* * ap* * * * * * * * * * * * * [essid]

* * * * Set the essid, join (I)BSS* essid* * * * * * * * * * * [mac_addr]

* * * * Set operation mode* * * * * mode* * * * * * * * * * * * {Managed|Ad-hoc}

* * * * Set keys and security mode* key / enc[ryption]

{N|open|restricted|off}





For example:



* * * * iwconfig wlan0 ap XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

* * * * iwconfig wlan0 essid "ap_name"

* * * * iwconfig wlan0 mode Ad-hoc

* * * * iwconfig wlan0 mode essid "name" mode Ad-hoc

* * * * iwconfig wlan0 key 0123456789 [2] open

* * * * iwconfig wlan0 key off

* * * * iwconfig wlan0 key restricted [3] 0123456789



< Getting IP address >

After start up the nic, the network needs to obtain an IP address

before transmit/receive data.

This can be done by setting the static IP via "ifconfig wlan0

IP_ADDRESS" command, or using DHCP.



If using DHCP, setting steps is as below:



* * * * (1)connect to an AP via "iwconfig" settings

* * * * * * * * iwconfig wlan0 essid [name]* * or

* * * * * * * * iwconfig wlan0 ap XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX



* * * * (2)run the script which run the dhclient

* * * * * * * * ./wlan0dhcp

* * * * * or

* * * * * * * * dhcpcd wlan0

* * * * * * * * (Some network admins require that you use the

* * * * * * * * hostname and domainname provided by the DHCP server.

* * * * * * * * In that case, use

* * * * * * * * dhcpcd -HD wlan0)







< WPAPSK >

WPA_SUPPLICANT help the network to communicate under the protection of

WPAPSK mechanism



* * * * (1)Unpack source code of WPA supplicant:

* * * * * * * * tar -zxvf wpa_supplicant-0.4.9.tar.gz

* * * * * * * * cd wpa_supplicant-0.4.9



* * * * (2)Create .config file:

* * * * * * * * cp defconfig .config



* * * * (3)Edit .config file, uncomment the following line:

* * * * * * * * #CONFIG_DRIVER_IPW=y.



* * * * (4)Build WPA supplicant:

* * * * * * * * make



* * * * If make error for lack of <include/md5.h>, install the openssl lib:

* * * * 1. Install the openssl lib from corresponding installation disc:

* * * * * * Fedora Core 2/3/4/5/6/7(openssl-0.9.71x-xx),

* * * * * * Mandrake10.2/Mandriva10.2(openssl-0.9.7x-xmdk),

* * * * * * Debian 3.1(libssl-dev), Suse 9.3/10.0/10.1(openssl_devl),

* * * * * * Gentoo(dev-libs/openssl), etc.

* * * * 2. Download the openssl open source package from

www.openssl.org, build and install it.



* * * * (5)Edit wpa_supplicant.conf to set up SSID and its passphrase.

* * * * For example, the following setting in "wpa1.conf" means SSID

to join is "BufAG54_Ch6"

* * * * and its passphrase is "87654321".



* * * * * * * * network={

* * * * * * * * * * * * ssid="BufAG54_Ch6"

* * * * * * * * * * * * proto=WPA

* * * * * * * * * * * * key_mgmt=WPA-PSK

* * * * * * * * * * * * pairwise=CCMP TKIP

* * * * * * * * * * * * group=CCMP TKIP WEP104 WEP40

* * * * * * * * * * * * psk="87654321"

* * * * * * * * * * * * priority=2

* * * * * * * * }

* * * * Note: 1. proto=WPA for WPA, proto=RSN for WPA2.

* * * * * * * 2. If you want to connect an AP which works under WPA2

mixed mode, you'd better

* * * * * * * * use Realtek customed wpa_supplicant package.





* * * * (6)Execute WPA supplicant (Assume 8185 and related modules had

been loaded):

* * * * * * * * ./wpa_supplicant -D ipw -c wpa1.conf -i wlan0 &

Why does it say wlan0, no such device? I appended this to my

/etc/network/interfaces




Code:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp



auto wlan0
and I restarted the networking service.



Now I remember how I got the driver. I went to here.



http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/j...3/id,list_o-z/



Then I clicked on the link for the tew-424UB driver. I was about to get
the Windows driver, but then I saw there was a Linux driver.



http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/...Downloads=true




This is the direct download to the file I got.



ftp://209.216.61.149/cn/wlan/rtl8185...23.2007.tar.gz



lsusb shows this




Code:

you might try running ./wlan0up as root:

ex: sudo ./wlan0up

note: usually, when it says "operation not permmitted", it usually means
that the program is trying to do something that a restricted user is not
permitted to do.
