I should have said that this is a older pi zero:

I looked at your download site http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi ... u-drivers/ for "8188eu-5.4.51-v6l-1333.tar.gz", but no such file exists. The following are there, though:

8188eu-5.4.51-v7l-1333.tar.gz
8188eu-5.4.51-v8-1333.tar.gz
Can I use the one with no "v" qualifier?
Use the driver that matches the kernel version from command uname -a. It does not show -v6l, just 5.4.51+ #1333 so you don't need a driver file that includes -v6l.

In your case use 8188eu-5.4.51-1333.tar.gz.

EDIT: If you use my install-wifi script it will automatically select the right driver file.

I hadn't looked at the output of "uname -a" on any of my pi's recently. I saw the "armv6l" near the end of the output, and mistakenly assumed that was the v6 you were looking for. If I do a "uname -l" on my pi4, I clearly see you're looking for a modifier in the front, next to the kernel, in that case "v7l":

Code: Select all

pi@pi4:~ $ uname -a
Linux pi4 5.4.51-v7l+ #1333 SMP Mon Aug 10 16:51:40 BST 2020 armv7l GNU/Linux

The file "8188eu-5.4.51-1333.tar.gz" worked fine, thank you for steering me straight.

I installed your driver the other day, and it was working fine.

I did a full-upgrade today and apparently got a new kernel. NB: I got the same result for "uname -a" before the update, and after the update and a reboot. Given that, I wondered whether I wouldn't need to reinstall your driver.

But it seems like I do have to reinstall - I had no wifi until I did so.

Could you please comment on these items?

1. Why would a kernel be installed with the same identifiers?
2. Why would installing the (apparently) same kernel break wifi?

Hi tinker2much,

A kernel upgrade can be done using rpi-update or apt upgrade/full-upgrade. Updating the kernel with rpi-update is very obvious. A kernel update using apt upgrade is not so obvious and generally only occurs when a new stable kernel version is created and when done will not occur again until another new stable kernel version is available and then a new kernel version will be installed.

When running apt upgrade/full-upgrade a kernel update will be indicated if the upgrade installs packages such as raspberrypi-kernel, raspberrypi-bootloader and others like libraspberrypi-doc.

When a new kernel is installed the directory tree containing the modules included in the kernel version is deleted and is re-written using the new directory tree included in the new updated kernel version. Any modules that are not included in the kernel build but have been installed will be deleted and will then need re-installing just like you have found with my wifi modules.

A kernel version can effectively be re-installed if a particular kernel version has first been installed using rpi-update and then the same kernel version is classed as a new stable version and so will then be installed using apt upgrade/full-upgrade. This will then require any out if tree modules like my wifi modules to be re-installed.

This situation has just occured with kernel version 5.4.51* #1333. On one of my Pi I had installed kernel 5.4.51* #1333 using rpi-update then just yesterday running apt full-upgrade re-installed kernel 5.4.51* #1333 which deleted the wifi modules I used on that Pi, so it was necessary to re-install the wifi drivers.

Hope this clarifies this.

The drivers will not be available until i have compiled them and copied them to the web site.

The driver should be available now if you try the script again.

Thank you very much .. the installation run perfect .. but the Problem is ..
i can not configure the interface direct on the raspian Desktop ..
i see no interface on ifconfig

Code: Select all

on /etc/network/interfaces are this
auto wlan0
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan inet dhcp

Code: Select all

when i make ifconfig wlan0 up than i see the interface but i cant config them under the Desktop hm very strange...
i also see that the kernel is back to 5.4.51+ #1333 i have do nothing .. i have only do rpi-update hm

I don't know what this means.

To configure the wifi do NOT edit file /etc/network/interfaces, but configure the wifi using file /etc/wpa-supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

File /etc/network/interfaces should look like

Code: Select all

# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)

# Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd
# For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf'

# Include files from /etc/network/interfaces.d:
source-directory /etc/network/interfaces.d
File /etc/wpa-supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf should look like

Code: Select all

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1
country=XX

network={
        ssid="network-name"
        psk="network-password"
}
Set XX in country=XX to the country code, in capital letters, where you are. Set network-name and network password to what your network uses.

MrEngman
One (brute force and sub-optimal) way I can stop the kernel updates breaking wi-fi is to stop the kernel from updating via "apt apt-mark hold". Otherwise, once the new kernel is applied, I have to go through the (simple but tedious) process of temporarily connecting two raspberry pi zeros to wired ethernet via an adapter so that I can get the appropriate module from your site.

Is there an automated way to fix the module AFTER doing the upgrade but BEFORE rebooting to the new kernel? (This assumes that the old kernel and old module are still in effect at that point and that I therefore still have wifi - please confirm...) Can I somehow detect that the kernel will be changed upon reboot, and go get the version of your module that needs to be in effect after reboot, while I still have internet now? And then somehow apply it (perhaps causing a discrepancy with the CURRENT kernel - please comment), but at least when I reboot life will be good? I could put together a little script that performed such a function after every upgrade - it would either detect that no such effort was required and do nothing, or detect that the module was needed and go get it.

It is certainly possible to update the wifi driver if the kernel is updated when you run command sudo apt upgrade(or full-upgrade) before rebooting so the wifi will continue to work after rebooting.

Before enabling the update you will need to check the list of files that will be installed and look for files such as raspberrypi-bootloader, raspberrypi-kernel and libraspberrypi-xxx. If these files are in the list of files to be installed then the kernel will be updated and you will need to re-install the wifi driver.

To update the wifi driver you will need to access the github Hexxeh/rpi-firmware stable branch https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/commits/stable and select the commit-id for the latest stable kernel version. The latest stable kernel is 5.4.72xxx #1356, xxx depending on the Pi you are running on, +. -v7+, -v7l+ or -v8+, and the commit-id is 248e9331e4398e352c0ec4c6a7a989ef43eef4da

Then to re-install the wifi driver use command

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi -u commit-id
If it installs the kernel I've just shown above the actual command you need would be

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi -u 248e9331e4398e352c0ec4c6a7a989ef43eef4da
This is the current latest stable kernel version but could change anytime so is just an example.

After running the command the wifi driver will be installed for the new kernel update and the wifi should then continue running after rebooting to the new kernel version.

Hopefully this sorts the issue for you.

Looks like I might have a new adapter based on this chipset. It appears to be a new version of the Edimax N150 (ew-7811un_v2) [1].

The kernel driver they have for download on their support site [1] has the folder name rtl8188EUS_linux_v5.3.9_28540.20180627. I found this via a open BSD thread where they enabled this USB id and it seemed to work for them [2] using the rtl8188EU driver.

Can you post the output from command

MrEngman
Should of thought about that first up! Thanks for the quick reply:

OS is Raspbian Stretch

Hi,

I've updated the driver for your kernel version, 4.19.66-v7+ #1253, and the install-wifi script as well to include your wifi module.

Hopefully it will work as I don't have one of those wifi modules to test it with.

Would be useful if you can let me know if it works OK, or not.

Now off to update the 8188eu drivers for a load of other kernel versions.

Hi Got pointed over here after pulling my hair out all day. I have a Realtek RTL8188CUS and ran your script but it looks like this isnt for my device is this correct I thought this would work with a Realtek RTL8188CUS? The output of your script is below:

*** Raspberry Pi wifi driver installer by MrEngman.
*** Performing self-update
*** Relaunching after update

*** Raspberry Pi wifi driver installer by MrEngman.

Your current kernel revision = 5.4.72-v7+
Your current kernel build = #1356

Checking for a wifi module to determine the driver to install.

Your wifi module is unrecognised.

**** Unable to identify your wifi module ****

The script only works for wifi modules using the rtl8188eu, rtl8188fu, rtl8192eu, rtl8812au, 8822bu, mt7610 and mt7612 drivers.

Looking for your wifi module the script detected the following USB devices:-

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 046d:c31c Logitech, Inc. Keyboard K120
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8176 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188CUS 802.11n WLAN Adapter
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

If you are certain your module uses one of the drivers the script installs check the output of command
'lsusb' shows your wifi module. If lsusb shows your wifi module try running the script again. If the
script fails to detect your wifi module again the driver may need updating to add your module USB id.

If lsusb does not show your wifi module you will need to resolve that issue before the script can be
used to install the driver you need.

The pointer to this post was wrong. I used to compile the 8188cus driver but that was back in 2012/13 before the driver was included in the Raspbian OS. Once it was included in the image I stopped compiling it.

Not sure why you are having problems as I have several 8188cus wifi modules working on several different Pi. Unless you are trying to connect to a 5GHz network when it will not.

Hi MrEngman

Love that your helping everyone with these devices. The reason I bought this unit was it was supposed to work out the box after a bunch of research. Its a 2ghz signal I am point to.

cheers

Just noticed a possible issue in the output you posted from lsmod command in your original post. Added a comment on your original post.

Hmm my first Post in this topic is missed, so i try again:

Hello together, im completly new with Raspberry PI and Linux, so sorry for my "simple questions". My only expirience: once i setup an RetroPi, thats all.

This week my new 3d printer arrivend and like to setup an "Octopi" Print Server.
All worked fine (inklude Remote access). However, there is poor WLAN reception in the room where the printer is located.
So i orderd an USB Wlan antenna here: https://www.makershop.de/kits/wlan-bgn-150mbit-usb/

In the description they said, that the drivers will be there: http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/
At this link I ended up in this thread.

I'm using an Raspberry Pi 3b with this specs:
Raspian Linux 10 (buster)
Linux Octopi 5.4.72-v7+ #1356

I hope this information helps. Now to my question:
Anyone know, where i get the drivers for the wlan antenna and how do i install it?
Thanks in advance!
