    Re: Trendnet TEW-684UB adapter and Ubuntu setup problem

    Hi, you will most likely need to use ndiswrapper.

    You should ask a staff member to move your thread here

    This person is great with ndiswrapper.
    Thank you

    Re: Trendnet TEW-684UB adapter and Ubuntu setup problem

    Too bad. If your adapter were a TEW-649UB, it'd be plug & play. I'm using one right now. My adapter uses a RealTek RTL8192SU chipset, the TEW-648UB uses a RealTek RTL8188SU according to http://www.wikidevi.com/wiki/TRENDnet_TEW-648UB I've learned to also check with model # and version. Manufacturers have been know to use one chipset in widget abc v1 and a different chipset in widget abc v2.

    Hmmm, I just checked Realtek's web site. They offer a Linux driver for kernel 2.6.37 and earlier. Does that infer that this chipset is supported OOB in kernel 2.6.38 and later?

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    OldschoolVgamer: could you please post the output of these commands when the adapter is plugged in:
    Code:
    lsusb
    lshw -C Network
    uname -a
    That will tell us exactly what the chipset is, plus some other useful information. It's better to determine the chipset this way than based on the manufacturer's name of the device, since as noted above the manufacturers sometimes sell devices with totally different chipsets under near-identical names--and as far as Linux is concerned the only thing that matters it the chipset.

    Once we know which chipset you have we can either try to find a native Linux driver for it, or use a Windows driver in conjunction with ndiswrapper.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Hello,
    I have put together some packages for latest Realtek drivers and installation using DKMS. Maybe someone can use it.

    * rtl8712u (modul 8712u) for Ubuntu 10.04/11.04 (DKMS)
    * rtl8192cu for Ubuntu 10.04/11.04/11.10 (DKMS)
    * rtl8192ce for Ubuntu 10.04/10.10 (DKMS)
    * rtl8192de/ce/se Combo package for a single installation (Ubuntu 11.10)

    flash63: that's great, thanks. I'm sure this will make life much easier for people who need those to compile those drivers.

    I take it that you meant using the gnome-terminal. I used that.

    Re: Comprehensive ndiswrapper troubleshooting guide

    Try to add the device ID to the driver rt2800usb. This is one line, you better copy/paste it:
    Code:
    echo 'install rt2800usb modprobe --ignore-install rt2800usb ; /bin/echo "148f 3573" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2800usb/new_id' | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rt2800usb.conf
    Load the driver:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v rt2800usb
    and replug the stick. Check after that:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep rt2
