Problem with Airlink 101 (RTL8191SU chipset) I searched the forums and didn't find a problem exactly like mine, so please forgive me if I am just posting something already well discussed.

Problem with Airlink 101 (RTL8191SU chipset)

And this is my first post, so... I have a brand new Airlink Wireless dongle with the RTL8191SU chipset. I have a Model B and have just loaded the latest Raspbian wheezy build from the Raspberry PI downloads section (dated 2013-02-09). I CANNOT get the Airlink to find the wireless access point I know is there. But, my situation may, or may not be, slightly different from some others. Does it have anything to do with the message that r8712u driver is from the staging area? The green led on the dongle blinks slowly, then blinks rapidly for a few seconds and then goes back to blinking slowly.

Any help, advice, pointing in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!!! Since it keeps telling me I can't attach the file outputs I will just list them here. Is there anything I can do to help diagnose the issue? Output from lsusb. Realtech 8191su Wifi setup. I cannot seem to get the above to work with my wireless router setup.

It seems every internet Raspberry Pi help site gives a slightly different way of setting up wifi. I've tried them all! What have I left out? Here is what I have: pi@raspberrypi ~ $ uname -aLinux raspberrypi 3.6.11+ #434 PREEMPT Wed May 1 21:13:52 BST 2013 armv6l GNU/Linux pi@raspberrypi ~ $ lsusbBus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9512 Standard Microsystems Corp.Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hubBus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp.Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0bda:8172 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

License: Creative Commons License CC BY-SA 3.0, published on The first models of Raspberry Pi computers were shipped and I was happy to receive one this week. RasPi is a SoC computer for ~25€ with Broadcom BCM2835 (ARM) CPU, 256MB, Ethernet, USB, HDMI and 3.5mm audio jack. I completed the equipment with an additional wireless USB adapter. Update (2012/07/22) I recommend to upgrade your Raspberry Pi to raspbian distribution. The original story: How to build wireless kernel module for Raspberry Pi I bought the cheapest wireless USB adapter my local store had: Sempre Wireless LAN 11N WU300-2. Unfortunately it did not work out of the box , since it uses a realtek chipset. Examining the device First, plugin in the device and watch the output of dmesg: $ dmesg Looks good so far. . $ lsusb Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0bda:8172 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. Then search the ID in Debian Wiki for the corresponding kernel module: mine is r8712u. Enter the sections.
