    AWLL6075 installation problem

    Hi, for people who are about to help me, let me warn you that this is my first ubuntu or really linux experience, so just want to let you know what you are getting into.

    ok disclaimers aside, I need help with my wireless mini usb adapter, AWLL6075, I have tried following other's successful attempts of installing this, but I have so far unable to duplicate such success. The problem is that I could not place anything that i wanted anywhere because it keep saying that I do not have permission, and so far, i have been denied from copying anything to any place. Plus even if I were to make through all of the permission issues, I still do not understand what the rest of the instructions said, maybe they were informal enough for others, but for me it was very vague. So please help me. I am using ubuntu 10.04, and just had a nice clean install.

    thank you.

    Re: AWLL6075 installation problem

    okay I personally have not been able to get my AWLL6075 working on 10.04 yet either, but I haven't tried too hard...

    Now, I don't know what instructions you've had, but if you get it working I'd love to know how you did it, so I can do it also...

    As far as getting past permissions is concerned, there's this cool command called sudo which gives you root access to the filesystem. This is something which should be used with some degree of caution, because some files naturally or not meant to be manipulated and doing so can break your system entirely. I don't want to scare you though. Most times, as long as you're following someone elses instructions you can be generally certain that you'll be safe to follow those instructions. Of course if the system gives you a message which makes you nervous, always feel free to come back here and ask if it's safe.

    I myself am still relatively new to Ubuntu, but I can still help a bit...

    In order to use the command sudo, you need to be in the "terminal window" some would call this the command prompt, others might call it bash, or shell. In order to get to the terminal window, go to the Applications menu>Accessories>terminal. Once there you can use terminal based commands like sudo. For copying files, I've found that the most useful command is:

    sudo nautilus

    you will be prompted for your user password, not the root user password. This is the same password that you use when you log on in the first place.

    nautilus is the file browser in ubuntu, and is normally opened when you click any of the items from the Places menu. By using sudo nautilus though, you open the file browser with root user access, and thus don't have to worry about permissions. If you ever find that you need to change permissions of a file for whatever reason ( and this should be done with caution, only change permissions of files that you know are safe, like files that you have made for instance ) then you can change permissions from this sudo nautilus window as well, by right clicking on a file and clicking Properties from the pop up menu. Many Linux die hards of course would recommend the command line alternative to this, which can be faster, and more efficient when you know what you're doing.

    Hope I've helped! Good luck!

    (Oh by the way, the instructions that I know of for getting AWLL6075 to work in 9.04 are different than those in 9.10, and again these are different for 10.04. That's the reason that I haven't got it working yet myself. )

    Re: AWLL6075 installation problem

    i noticed that the compiling and installation of drivers differ for each version of ubuntu (in this case).. i got the permissions part right away... but i cant install the drivers as i too have no knowledge of how to modify the instructions from 9.04 to make it work in LUCID

    hope someone knowledgeable can help us

    Re: AWLL6075 installation problem

    The major difference from 9.04 to 9.10(Karmic) was that as of 9.10 required a firmware update in order to get this wireless adapter to work... I haven't yet figured out whether this firmware update is still required in LUCID.... When I get more info I will be sure to share it here though.

    Take care!

    Re: AWLL6075 installation problem

    Okay, so I got a reply back from Airlink, and they inform me that Realtek is now the company supporting this device. The AWLL6075 adapter is running the RTL8191SU chipset and a driver for linux kernel 2.6.x can be found here:

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

    I haven't yet tested this to see if it works or not, but will be doing so shortly. The last package of this nature that I downloaded had instructions as to how to build the module and install it. The instructions run from the command line. I hope this helps you guys, I'm going to quickly go test it now, and will let you guys know when I have more info!

    Re: AWLL6075 installation problem

    holy sh*t, this must be the best community i have ever encountered with! please excuse my language but 5 comments in 2 days is ***king amazing! and everyone is so nice! please let me know if the realtek driver works, and please give me instruction on how to. I currently do not have time right now, so i will try out the drivers myself this coming weekend, but in the meantime, please post any tip or, again, instruction or precautions i should take in my attempt of installing this. Thank you. And another question, will it be better to run HD videos on ubuntu through xbmc or will it be better on win 7?

    Alas the realtek driver did not work... When I try to "make" it then I get the following output:

    I have the firmware update that was needed in 9.10 at:
    /lib/firmware/RTL8192SE/rtl8192sfw.bin

    So far I don't know whether I even need the firmware update yet...

    I tried deactivating the driver in the Hardware Drivers menu before making it, but the result I get is the same either way...

    .
    .
    .

    As far as HD in Win7 vs Ubuntu, I'm not qualified to say in that regard sorry... (But of course, you should do everything in Ubuntu, because it's the best )

    hmm, i'm sorry, but to be realistic and incredibly blunt, i have no idea what that post meant, i'm sure ubuntu pro would find it useful though and btw i'm using win 7 right now cause i cant use the internet on ubuntu :/ so yah... not the best for my htpc, it was quite good for my laptop tho.
