    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    My Samsung N130 and I have been going round and round with the same issue.
    I'm running 10.10 w/kernel 2.6.35-22.

    I sent realtek an email on Saturday, and got a reply on Sunday with the correct drivers.

    email & link:

    Dear Sir,

    Thanks for your email.

    Please find the attached for latest RTL8192E 32bit and 64bit Linux driver which is the updated one different from the one you used.

    Just kindly remind, please install by the below steps.

    The following is the installing steps:
    1. Change to the driver directory
    2. sudo su
    3. make
    4. make install
    5.reboot
    6. ./wlan0up or ./wlan1up

    Note: 1. if permission denied, change perperty with `chmod 777 wlan0up`
    2. or enable driver with `ifconfig wlanx up`(wlanx denote wlan interface name).


    If your OS is 64bit, maybe there is kernel self driver for RTL8192E, you should delet it first before install:

    1) cd /lib/modules/2.6.3x.xx.xx/
    2) find -name "r8192e_pci.ko"
    3) delet all the r8192e_pci.ko
    4) install our RTL8192E driver
    5) reboot.

    if there’s still any other problem, please let us know.

    Thanks a lot

    Regards,

    Kidman

    Re: Realtek rtl8192e wireless not seen

    I have an Acer Veriton Nettop running Debain 6.0.6 with a Realtek RTL8192DE wireless card. I downloaded the Unix/Linux driver from the Realtek website but compiling the module from source kept failing. The README file mentioned using compat-wireless. The versions of compat-wireless seemed to be organized based on kernel versions. Debian is currently running 2.6.32-5. I tried compat-wireless v2.6 but it didn't work. After extracting the tar.bz2 file and going through the README file, there's a command showing the wireless cards it supports:
    Code:
    ./scripts/driver-select
    v2.6 didn't have the right driver available. I downloaded v3.5 and it did:
    Code:
    Supported 802.11 drivers:
            ath5k
            ath9k
            ath9k_ap
            ath9k_htc
            carl9170
            ath6kl
            b43
            zd1211rw
            rt2x00
            wl1251
            wl12xx
            brcmsmac
            brcmfmac
    
    Supported Ethernet drivers:
            atl1
            atl2
            atl1e
            atl1c
            alx
    
    Supported group drivers:
            atheros <  ath5k ath9k carl9170 zd1211rw ath6kl >
            ath <  ath5k ath9k carl9170 ath6kl >
            brcm80211 <  brcmsmac brcmfmac >
            intel <  iwlwifi, iwlegacy >
            rtl818x <  rtl8180 rtl8187 >
            rtlwifi <  rtl8192ce >
            ti <  wl1251 wl12xx (SPI and SDIO)>
    
    Supported group drivers: Bluetooth & Ethernet:
            atlxx <  atl1 atl2 atl1e alx>
            bt <  Linux bluetooth drivers >
    gcc, kernel headers, and all the other usual software for compiling packages should be installed. I compiled the driver successfully using the instructions in the README file. Pay attention to output after the scripts finish installing the kernel modules. There are a few extra commands needed to load the drivers into the kernel and reboot, but I can't remember what they are. I'm using the rtlwifi driver with no problems. Hope this helps!
