    Question Re: Cant connect wifi with realtek 0bda:f179 RTL8189FTV

    Was anybody able to get it working in monitor mode?
    I compiled the driver and it works, but I wasn't able to start the monitor mode.
    I even modified the makefile (as suggested in this question) like so:

    Code:
    rtl8188fu/Makefile:
    
    CONFIG_POWER_SAVING = n
    CONFIG_WIFI_MONITOR = y
    But still, it segfaults
    The Truth shall set you free

    does LAN work? Install the driver via
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install git build-essential
    git clone git://github.com/ulli-kroll/rtl8188fu
    cd rtl8188fu
    make
    sudo make installfw
    sudo modprobe cfg80211
    sudo insmod rtl8188fu.ko
    sudo make install
    https://github.com/ulli-kroll/rtl8188fu
    THANK YOU MAN! You SAVED ME! It works perfectly!
