Edimax Wireless LAN

I just bought a new PC and immediately installed Ubuntu, but it can’t find any wireless networks. I assume this is because the wireless (Edimax wireless LAN, not sure of the exact name) is not supported.

How can I find the driver for this component? Is there a way to download it here (my laptop) and copy it to my new system, or will I have to use an ethernet cable?

Thanks in advance.

Could you open a terminal using Ctrl+Alt+F2 and send the out from:

sudo modprobe

and

lshw -C network

EDIT: Also what is the Make/Model of your PC?

sudo modprobe:

Usage: modprobe [-v] [-V] [-C config-file] [-d <dirname> ] [-n] [-i] [-q] [-b] [-o <modname>] [ --dump-modversions ] <modname> [parameters...]
modprobe -r [-n] [-i] [-v] <modulename> ...
modprobe -l -t <dirname> [ -a <modulename> ...]

lshw -C network:

It told me to run as sudo, which I did, and it crashed twice (I could not file the bug report as I have no internet :frowning: )
The third time I ran it I got:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The PC is custom built by computerplanet.co.uk, intel processor, Asus P8H67-M (LE), running ubuntu 11.10 liveUSB.

It’s worth mentioning that earlier today I’d had the computer on running the live version for quite a while and it found a network (not mine unfortunately) but since I restarted it has lost it again.

Can you post the output from

ifconfig

and

sudo iwlist scanning

update: it’s found the other network again, much like last time - I left it on for a long time and it appeared under the network appindicator, the same network as last time.

Are you saying it’s fixed itself or not ?

I wouldn’t say fixed - firstly it takes about half an hour to find it, and secondly it doesn’t find my home network so I still can’t get online. So it’s just a different problem. Incidently the network it has found is called ‘badger’, and I can see it on my other (this) machine, and there doesn’t seem to be anything unusual about it, so is there any reason it should find this netowkr but none of the others?

Which version of Ubuntu ?

God knows why it sees that one… maybe it’s using WEP rather than WPA/2 or is unencrypted

This is Ubuntu 11.10 from a live USB - the specs on my network card say it can handle WPA WPA2 and WEP 64 and 128 bit, and the network is definitely encrypted.

Damn … I’d already typed up the instructions for 11.04 … now I discover the driver needs modifying before it will compile in 11.10 :o

Anyway, I’ve pre-modified the driver for 11.10 and uploaded it to my dropbox.
(for future readers, this driver is for 11.10 only and may not compile in previous Ubuntu versions)

So try this…

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential

then

cd ~

then

wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11876059/rtl_92ce_92se_92de_linux_mac80211_0004.0816.2011.tar.gz

then

tar -xzvf rtl_92ce_92se_92de_linux_mac80211_0004.0816.2011.tar.gz

then

cd ~/rtl_92ce_92se_92de_linux_mac80211_0004.0816.2011

then

sudo su

then

make

then

make install

then

exit

then to reload the driver:

sudo modprobe -r rtl8192se

then

sudo modprobe rtl8192se

Now check if your Wireless is now working

If it is working … REBOOT, and check it STILL works.

Hmmm, still not working. When I ran that last command (sudo modprobe rtl8192se) I got a notifyOSD saying Network: disconnected - you are now offline.

Is there anything else I can try?

can you send the output from:

rfkill list

0:  phy0:  Wireless LAN
         Soft blocked: no
         Hard blocked: no

What does -

sudo lshw -C network

and

ifconfig

and

iwlist scanning

and

lsmod | grep rtl

say now ?

can you also post the output from -

lspci -vnnn

and

modinfo rtl8192se

sudo lshw -C network still gets me nothing and a crash, but first some text comes up:


PCI (sysfs)

this is replaced by:


SCSI

which in turn disappears and I get a new prompt (and a crash, as I said). This was the same before, but I didn’t manage to write it down.

without the sudo gives me:

So what exactly is the problem ? … is it still not showing any available networks in networkmanager ?

No, although as I said it has shown a network called ‘badger’ on two occasions (both yesterday, on separate boots, after being on for about an hour and on neither occasion disappearing until after the computer has shut down).
I have no idea what the problem is.

Searching for a solution … problem is Realtek haven’t got round to doing any drivers for kernels >= 2.6.39

Well this changes everything:

I just took the computer to the room with the router, and it picks it up. I guess that means the problem was just that the signal was too weak where I was - but my five year old laptop does fine there. However even in the room with good signal, I can’t log in - I enter the password which I know is correct but it doesn’t give me access. I am on now using a wire, and will install now, but there now seem to be too problems - it’s rubbish at picking up the signal, and it won’t log in.
I will update later.
