    Wireless-N driver installed, but no internet

    I have no internet available, but the driver seems to be installed (kernel driver r8169). I'll follow the steps for posting on the wireless forum this time:

    1) I'm using a desktop. Intel Core i7-870 2.93Ghz 8md Quad Core. Motherboard is an ASRock H55M-LE LGA1156. 4GB RAM DDR3.

    2) The wireless card is:

    What can I do to get internet? I'm currently using my friends usb wireless card.

    I've had pretty bad luck getting feedback on ubuntu forums. If there's something I'm doing wrong, please let me know. I really need to get help with this wireless problem.

    Re: Wireless-N driver installed, but no internet

    You have the r8169 driver installed all right; it's for your wired ethernet card. A driver for the wireless is not yet installed. Please run this command:
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    You will find the pci.id for the wireless card:
    04:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8190
    Subsystem: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8190
    It might be something like 10ec:8190.

    With that detail, we can Google and search this forum for the driver and install it.

    I will be back in about 9 hours.

    Yes

    01:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 03)
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device [10ec:8190]
    10ec:8190. Looks like the Realtek 8190 might not have a linux driver that works. jlucio in this thread said they got it working on 9.10. What do you think?

    Re: Wireless-N driver installed, but no internet

    I agree that, at this time, ndiswrapper is the preferred solution.

    You can skip the blacklist step. There is no module rtl8190.

    Do you have these?
    The one I used was exactly the one that came with the product, more precisely the WinXP x86 driver named "rtl8190p.sys" and "net8190.inf".
    Please let me know if you get stuck.

    Re: Wireless-N driver installed, but no internet

    When I try to install the net819xp.inf driver that comes with the hardware, the ndiswrapper installer tells me that "Driver is Already Installed." I know it's not installed because it's not in the /lib/firmware/ spot that it should be.

    Actually, it is installed in /etc/ndiswrapper.


    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...er/Ndiswrapper
    3.4.2. Installing Windows driver using command line

    In a Terminal, run the following command:

    *

    sudo ndiswrapper -i ~/drivers/drivername.inf

    (assuming the driver is in a directory in your home folder called drivers, and is named drivername.inf)

    ndiswrapper then copies the .inf and sys files into /etc/ndiswrapper/.... Don't forget that the filename you type in is case-sensitive.
    Does this command say that the driver is installed?
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    (l is for 'list.')

    Do you have a wireless interface, wlan0 perhaps?
    Code:
    iwconfig

    I'm currently using my friend's usb wireless card and it's working under wlan0 device.

    ndiswrapper -l gives me this:

    autorun : invalid driver!
    net819xp : invalid driver!

    Re: Wireless-N driver installed, but no internet

    I'm not quite sure where 'autorun' came from. I'd suggest you do:
    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -e autorun
    sudo ndiswrapper -e net819xp.inf
    sudo rm -rf /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    Proofread these commands carefully before you press Enter.

    Now make sure the files net819xp.inf and rtl819xp.sys and nothing else are in the same folder. Now navigate to that folder:
    Code:
    cd folderyoucreated
    ndiswrapper -i net819xp.inf
    The system should grab the .sys file automatically. Next, do:
    Code:
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    Post back and let me know how it goes.
