[Solved] Realtek RTL8191SE-VA2 not working

Postby rdanner3 on Mon Jun 21, 2010 2:34 pm

Machine: Toshiba Satellite A505-S6005
WLAN: RTL8191SE-VA2
OS: Linux Mint 9 (64-bit), dual-booted with Win7 Home Premium/64-bit

Problem:
Have tried (literally dozens of) solutions posted here and on the forums for distros related to Linux Mint, and nothing seems to work. WLAN0 is seen, but not usable. The one time it did light up (this is peculiar!) I wound up in Ad-Hoc mode with a 10.x.x.x IP, when I was trying to get it to see my access point (Netgear DGN2000) and its DHCP.

I suppose my big question is this: How do I properly resolve this, since nothing seems to be working... in Linux Mint. I've already noticed that Linux is far less power-guzzling than Windows, which (as an author who is out and about quite often) is a good thing. In Windows, the WLAN card works fine, so I think my frustration with this issue is (somewhat) understandable. While I am not a Linux newbie (in fact, currently working on Linux Admin exam), it's been years since I really delved into it, and that's probably part of the whole issue.

Also trying to find the fan-control subsystem, as the laptop doesn't seem to be managing fan at all under Linux, which is odd.

The wired LAN (Realtek RTL8101/02E, above) works fine. Thankfully. Anything else I need to show, I will respond to requests ASAP.

UPDATE:
Problem solved via upgrading OS to Linux Mint 10. LM10 recognized the card out of the box and it's been working ever since.

The problem is, I've even tried that driver (see http://bit.ly/bVdZwt for what I downloaded (v0017 of the driver; have also tried 0010, 0012, 0015 with very little to show for it). The one time I got it to work (briefly), it went ad-hoc, had a 10.x.x.x IP, and was obviously not looking for my router, which would have given it an IP in the 192.168.x.x range.) (Literally. My netmask is 255.255.0.0, though the router (a Netgear DGN2000) chokes on my trying to expand it to allow all 60,000+ nodes.) :lol: Not that I blame it.

The sad thing is that it just works in Windows, yet I have this sort of problem with it in LinuxMint 9, which is otherwise a grand OS. Very speedy, very long battery life (as far as I know; I do know it doesn't use the HDD nearly as much as Windows 7 does.)

As you see, this is quite correct by all the guides. The problem is: I've only gotten it to work a grand total of once, couldn't reach the 'Net using the ad hoc network it accessed (who knows where it was!) and it's never lit up since. Works great in Win7, which is also 64-bit, so I even tried using the Win7 driver using ndiswrapper after uninstalling this one. No joy.

Realtek RTL8191SE-VA2 not working

Postby rdanner3 on Tue Jul 13, 2010 7:11 pm

The card is still not working as expected. Linux Mint 9 at least sees the thing now (see attached hardware report) but still doesn't try using it. Very puzzling stuff.

Using 0017 of Realtek's Linux driver, and compiling it with no errors or warnings.

I'm very frustrated right now, and the HTML version was much more easily read. This problem has been very consistently resisting every effort to correct it.

Re: Realtek RTL8191SE-VA2 not working

Postby bob5 on Wed Jul 14, 2010 3:08 pm

hi

- bring wifi up with
Code: Select all
  sudo   ifconfig wlan0 up


Note: use ifconfig to check whether wlan0 is brought up and use iwconfig to check your wlan interface name,
since it may change wlan0 to wlan1,etc.

-then
Code: Select all
sudo wlist wlan0 scan
.

-check out the read-me for how do it by the terminal
Hope it helps!

Hello,
I'm really, really sad to say I have the same problem - this card is not meant for linux apparently.. Any ideas how to proceed?

Thank you for the tip - the problem is that my wired connection is not working either - atheros ar8152. Do I have to download utilities such as build-essential, gcc etc?

hi senseiski ,


do you have a driver for the atheros ar8152 then ?
Hope it helps!

Actually, no I didn't forget that. I have tried changing to my home-dir before sudo su, but that also does not work.

Considering trying to find the Win2000 x64 driver and see if that works. Linux uses a lot less juice than Win7, that's certain. Exactly what my battery life is under Linux I'd have to check, and the tools for Linux often don't show estimated battery life.

Now why can't Microsoft learn from the Linux community and avoid using HDD unless and until it is needed, not all the time? (Under Win7 and WinVista, my machine's HDD blinks all the time, often 7-20 accesses per second, even with the machine in safe mode.) This is clearly unacceptable.

Now looking for the Win2000 x64 driver, and will be forced to use ndiswrapper. Would prefer native-mode Linux drivers, obviously, but if it doesn't work... ::shrugs::

I prefer Linux Mint while writing, actually. Machine doesn't run nearly as hot as it does in Win7.

Yes, if the driver needs compiling. Otherwise, possibly not. Since many drivers for Linux work better if compiled for the specific machine Linux is on, it's likely the driver for your card is also supplied in source form.
