Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

Hi guys, for the record I ended up buying the TP-Link TL-WN822N device. I plugged it in, and it started detecting the network almost immediately. However, the connection seems very slow. I am wondering whether the previously-installed Realtek drivers may be causing conflicts with the new device? How...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

Hi guys, that's a shame! It seems we are at the end of the road for this device in Linux currently. I have put up a note on the Linux Mint community hardware list , with a link to this forum thread. (Let me know if I missed any important info which may help other users). I will either eBay this ASUS...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

OK, here is a bunch of outputs for you to read (from before, during and after reinstallling the Realtek drivers). BEFORE INSTALLING THE DRIVERS sudo modprobe rtl8192cu (no output shown on screen) sudo modprobe -rv rtl8192cu rmmod /lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

OK, I did the sudo make uninstall command. No output appeared within the Terminal screen, but it seemed to work, as there was a pause before my cursor appeared again within the window, and I could hear the computer working. Wireless still doesn't seem to be working, as I can't see the household netw...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

So I tried 2 system reboots, and the wireless is not instantly working. I have noticed that the blue LED on the wireless USB adaptor is behaving differently from when it was just the compat-wireless driver installed. With compat-wireless as the driver, the LED was constantly glowing, despite the dev...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

Actually, I think I just got around the problem by typing the commands chmod +x install.sh and then ./install.sh Installation seemed to go OK, besides these exceptions, which were noted at the end of the install script: ################################################## Compile make driver ok!! ####...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

OK, I downloaded and extracted the file, and tried to run install.sh with your suggested script. I am getting the following error message in Terminal:

Code: Select all

bash: .install.sh: Permission denied
How do I get around this?

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

At that stage I couldn't see any access points in the Network Connections window, or in the 'Wireless' tab of 'Network' settings. Any advice as to what to try now? I'm reluctant to give up, because I believe others have gotten the N13 working in Linux. Happy to Skype chat with any volunteer users, i...

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

Hi all, output from sudo iwlist scan : lo Interface doesn't support scanning. wlan0 No scan results. eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning. Any thoughts? Should I contact ASUS support? Do you think this wireless adaptor will ever work with Linux Mint 13, or should I look at other options?

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

OK, so I just deleted the 'Sirius' record from the Wireless tab of 'Network Connections'. (Sirius is the name of our house's WPA Wi-Fi network). Now that that 'auto Sirius' option has been removed from the list of options, it does not seem to be detecting the Sirius network via Wi-Fi signal alone. I...

Thanks for those instructions. I did everything AlbertP asked, and it seemed to make and install properly. I rebooted the computer, and the wireless is still not currently working.

Re: Wireless problems in Mint 13 with ASUS N13 (0b05:17ab)

If you think that is the solution, please post the steps and I can try it on my machine. I may be able to temporarily move my computer (it is a desktop) to close to my router and plug in via cat-5 cable, to download any necessary files. Or let me know if there is a way to put the files on my desktop...

Hi AlbertP and team.
