    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    Thanks, driver works great but I still had an issue with the computer locking up after a few minutes of wifi use. I got this from a google search.

    This is a common issue on x86_64 with >4GB memory mapped for doing 32 bit DMA transfers using an IOMMU (can be emulated via software like in your case [intel], or via hardware[amd]) when some driver leak memory.

    And the fix was to add the following to grub.

    One more tip, your problem will dissapear completely if boot your system with "mem=4G iommu=off". Of course, your system will have only ~3.3GB of RAM instead of 8G.

    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    Thanks Dude for posting this and sharing the driver. I have it working with the following:

    Kubuntu 9.10 32-Bit
    Toshiba L500 laptop

    Needed to uninstall network-manager. I don't have wicd installed.

    Because I have WPA-PSK (TKIP) setup on my router I installed the standard kubuntu wpasupplicant package and copied /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/wpa-psk-tkip.conf to /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf then edited it to suit.

    I added the following lines to /etc/network/interfaces:

    Code:
    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wpa-driver wext
    wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    Added the following line to /etc/modules:
    Code:
    r8192e_pci
    Rebooted and it worked fine. Thanks again for solving this issue.

    cheers

    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    Hello Dude,

    I just bought a Samsung N120 with the Realtek RTL8192E and can't get
    the WLAN to work under Ubuntu.
    Can you please upload the driver for me.
    I have my own FTP-Site, so you can (if you want) upload it to:

    ftp://magica.selfip.net/incoming

    Thanks a lot!!!

    Regards

    yutani

    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    I must be seeing something different with this Toshiba. I cannot seem to get the 8192e to come up reliably, even using that latest Linux driver, following the instructions. My home router uses WEP, if that makes a difference.
    Also, not that I am sure this matters, but my WLAN keeps getting seen as WLAN1....when it can be seen...
    I was attempting to use NDIS but had no luck there....
    Toshiba A505D-S6958
    AMD Tuion-X2
    4GB RAM
    Realtek 8192e wireless (b/g/n)
    ATI Radeon 3100
    Ubuntu 9.1.0 64 bit(recent upgrade)

    Any assistance greatly appreciated...

    Tony ...

    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    Hi Tony. I haven't been able to get the Realtek 8192E to work with 64 bit Windows drivers (or by compiling the source code either) on a relative's Toshiba Satellite P505D laptop. I was able to get it to install using the older 32-bit drivers under 32-bit Ultimate Ubuntu 2.3 (based on 9.04 Jackalope). Here is what I posted on another thread here:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...82&postcount=3

    Unfortunately, his Linux install got corrupted somehow on a dual-boot Vista, so we just upgraded to the newer Ultimate Ubuntu 2.4 (based on ubuntu 9.10) in 64-bit, and now I can't get the WiFi to work with the newer 64-bit OS either. This new kernel is listed as:
    2.6.31-15-generic #50-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 10 14:53:52 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I did briefly see device "wlan0", but it said it was disabled when I ran an "iwconfig" command. The source code method is described on this Samsung N120 thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1191590

    As near as I can tell, this is only/mainly? a problem for the 64-bit OS and drivers (the 32-bit Ubuntu wireless worked great for weeks in the new P505D Toshiba). I've found some newer Vista and Windows 7 drivers, and I may try to mix and match something there (but I remember that being a good way to freeze a 64-bit Linux when we experimented before).

    Good Luck (esp. if it's a 64-bit version).

    EDIT: The 8192SE source code was throwing error messages at me when I tried compiling that earlier, so I'm not convinced those chipsets are compatible. The 8192 E sourcecode from this German site did eventually compile (but still no 64-bit wireless "wlan0" device functioning- it showed "disabled" and then disappeared after a reboot).

    This looks to be the fix, thanks to chili555:

    Link's down again. Could you perhaps upload the driver again to a more available location - at least just attach it here if possible?

    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    The file is too large to upload here. But here is a new link again.

    Remember this is the 32bit version of the driver, you will have to e-mail realtek for the 64bit version.

    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    Dude-PWB-,

    I downloaded the driver and followed your instructions. No errors when I do
    Code:
    sudo ./wlan0up
    but no connections either. There is no wlan0 listed by iwconfig, and when I tried to set the essid using
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid <ESSID>
    it gave me the error:
    Code:
    Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
        SET failed on device wlan0 ; No such device.
    The link is for a 32 bit driver, correct? I've tried ndiswrapper also with no success. I have a Realtek 8172 on a Toshiba T135-S1309, running Ubuntu 9.10 32-bit. Extensive Googling has revealed nothing for the 8172 except that it's _supposed_ to work with the 8192e drivers. Do you have any other suggestions?

    I've never done this before -- on my old laptop (Atheros card) the wireless worked out of the box.

    Thanks! =)

    If you are absolutely sure about which wireless device you have, I would e-mail realtek and ask them for the driver, that's all I did, and they were quite quick about it too.

    However, that card seems to be one that I have not yet seen. Make sure you check the networking section of 'lspci -vv' closely to determine the proper chipset.
