RealTek 8192 b/g/n wireless not working [Solved]

Postby tman7510 » Mon Mar 29, 2010 1:35

I have actualy tried to install the vendor written linux driver but I get this error:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.31-14-generic'
CC [M] /home/ubuntu/Desktop/rtl8192e_linux_2.6.0008.0106.2009/ieee80211/ieee80211_module.o

make: *** [all] Error 2

Ofcourse I'm not using ubuntu but I looked on their forum and they are getting the exact same error with this driver. Any ideas on why it is not working. The driver for rtl8192se is available from the manufactures site but doesn't work. The ubuntu forum suggest ndiswrapper so I will try this but I would much prefer a native Linux driver :-)

hmm, have you tried using a newer kernel? 2.6.33 is in limbo repo. And if that don't work, you may have to use ndiswrapper for the time being. I know is sux, I used to have to do it with a BCM4318 long ago, but the OS drivers rock now. Ath5k and Ath9k are buggy. Right now isn't a good time for wireless cards under linux, drivers are under development and the kernel is growing rapidly. this makes constant incompatibility until someone updates the drivers (which is why opensource drivers are better, they keep up with development more often).

you can download the native drivers from realtek...I downloaded the 64bit one and then you just need to install your kernel source so that you can compile the driver on your own. After I did this my wireless workes perfectly :D :D
