    Hardwire to USB

    I have been running a machine that has been hardwired to the router that I have moved into another room and want to run wireless with a dlink DWA-130 usb stick. What do I have to do to get it to ignore the build in lan and see the usb stick instead? It is working in windows 7 without a hiccup.

    Re: Hardwire to USB

    Ok, check additionally:

    Code:
    dmesg | grep r8
    rfkill list
    iwconfig
    You may want to update the driver from the Realtek-HP:

    http://218.210.127.131/downloads/dow...Downloads=true

    Driver RTL8192CU Version 3.1.2590. Unpack it to /home, change the directory and install it:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential
    cd foldername/
    sudo chmod +x install.sh
    sudo ./install.sh
    Reboot and check:

    Code:
    uname -a
    iwconfig
    lsmod
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep 8192
    If you have problems with LAN, too, install the "right" driver r8168 instead of r8169, description here:
