PostPosted: Tue 10 Jul 2012, 09:09    Post_subject:  network interface in Slacko 5.3.3 and Racy 5.3 ?  

I have a micro usb wifi adapter. uses rtl8192cu driver which the kernel of these packages support. The adapter is a Netgear G54/N150 WNA1000M

On my initial network setup it scans the environment and see my ESSID. I select it on the wlan0 configuratoin, enter my WPA2 password. Save the profile and then select use this one. It doesn't connect. Which I didn't find totally unusual.

However when I reinter the interface and Scan the area it doesn't see anything, no other networks.

It there a script fault somewhere, why does it not see the other networks again?

Does not this interface accept a WPA2 configuration.

Thanks in advance.

Racy 5.3 has support with needed files for rtl8192cu, it has kernel module driver, firmware and needed mention in firmware.dep file.
It supports WPA and WPA2 connections.

What does lspci -nn tells about your wireless chip and what does dmesg tells about loading the wireless driver and firmware ?

Per you instructions attached are read outs for lspic -nn and dmesg

It appears that the driver and firmware are loaded as you indicate, but the interface still works weird.

Thanks for you suggestion and time.

lspci didnt list your wireless. Could you try lsusb command. I would like to get ID code of your wireless. Dmesg shows that it is loaded. If you try to scan and you get your network shown in SNS.....could you run dmesg again.
Also running pmodemdiag after scanning networks gathers and packages a lot useful diagnostic and debug files in compressed ready package. You could attach it.
Some people have got working results with Frisbee when SNS fails.

Per you instructions here is a updated list of documents with some more info for you to examine and digest.

The interface initially reports "Unable to establish WPA connection"

I am using a USB 1.1 port if that makes any difference.

Thanks.

I checked from my kernel 3.4.2 kernel sources: /kernel_sources-3.4.2-dpup/usr/src/linux/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/sw.c

{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x0846, 0x9041, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*NetGear WNA1000M*/

0x0846, 0x9041

Yeah. My latest kernel has support for it. I dont have kernel sources for Racy or Slacko, so I cant check the support in those kernels for that ID, but it loads so...I suppose the support is right.

I think Slacko has Frisbee in Slickpet or in PPM. Install it and test.
Another test could be that you download my latest dpup with 3.4.2 kernel. It has fairly recent rtl8192cu module with needed firmware and firmware.dep linking...and Frisbee preinstalled. I suggest it just that you could test that if it is possible to establish the connection.

Also....running pmodemdiag in console and attaching the created package here would help.

Thanks for checking out the data, I will download your dpup and see what happens :)
Hopefully good things. Wifi connections can be tricky. I recall I went through various hoops when I was using 2.15CE to get a wifi card to work :)

I downloaded your Dpup Squeeze, second verse same as the first, same behaviour using the Internet Connect Wizard and the Frisbee interface.

Ok. Then it could be the WPA2 problem. Can you change the encryption method...as a test.

Oh...and that pmodemdiag script produced information would be helpful. Run it after unsuccesful attempt to connect.

I am about to give up. I opened up the wireless router briefly to see if the connect would work.

It saw it claimed to connect, then when I attempted to browse nothing.

when I went to rescan again it didn't see any ESSID at all like before.

I am concluding that the Network interface is broken it should have not difficulty handshaking an open wireless connection I would think.

I will get back to you on the wirless adapter diagnostics.

Well, you got ip address from dhcpcd, and there is attempt to connect but then the wireless has been released. Something goes wrong. I didnt find anything spesific. Someone more experienced is needed.

it appears that the adapter is querying the CRDA database and doesn't find a match so it closes the connection.

Well... you could create a match.
Create text file /etc/default/crda and place in it your country code. This is quote I found:

Just to let you guys know i found an easier fix for this on ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Just go to /etc/default/ and edit the crda file to REGDOMAIN=GB or whatever country code you like.
Hope this helps. Smile
