Mint 19.2/3 rtl8188fu driver problem

Post by rogerChaslock »

I recently bought a WiFi USB dongle. The device identifies as

ID 0bda:f179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

I believe the correct driver for this is rtl8188fu, but am open to correction.

I installed the driver according to https://github.com/corneal64/Realtek-US ... er-Drivers

When I enable the device through the Network Manager, it reports a connection, but I get no internet and cannot ping anything. After a while, the device disconnects. After a pause, it attempts reconnection, giving the same results, and then closes down. Running dmesg shows nothing I can understand.

After this performance, I try enabling my ethernet connection, but this, too, cannot connect to the internet. I have to reboot to get the internet via ethernet.

I would appreciate help and advice on diagnosing the problem.

Thank you for the link.
At least with this one I get the ethernet internet back after trying the WiFi ( which still does not work ).

Does this do anything:

Code: Select all

 sudo modprobe rtl8188fu

There is nothing obvious:-

roger@LM-desktop ~ $ sudo modprobe rtl8188fu
[sudo] password for roger:
roger@LM-desktop ~ $

Where should I be looking?

Could you post following command's outputs.

Code: Select all

journalctl -b -k --no-page -l | grep rtl8188fu 
journalctl -b -u NetworkManager --no-page -l 
cat /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8188fu.conf
cat /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf 
ls /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8188fufw.bin

Firstly, I have got a new WiFi USB adaptor - Tp-link TL-WN725N - and built a driver for that.

And so -

Are you sure secureboot is disabled? If secureboot is not disabled, you must disable secureboot from the bios/efi settings.

Also install the sysfsutils package and post output of the commands below for checking.

Code: Select all

modinfo 8188eu
systool -vm 8188eu
