    privatix belkin wlan usb install


    Hi all,

    running Debian based Privatix-Linux (similar to TAILS) I'm having problems installing my belkin wlan usb stick.

    I have installed it successfully before on Zenwalk-Linux and also on Puppy-Linux with ndiswrapper.

    What have I done so far on the Privatix system:

    connected the usb wlan stick and confirmed connection via

    lsusb:

    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 050d:945a Belkin Components

    then I wanted to use ndiswrapper but it wasn't installed.
    So I installed it and added the win drivers.

    ndiswrapper -l:

    net8192su : driver installed
    device (050D:945A) present

    running iwconfig I had to realize that this one wasn't installed either. so I installed iw

    the command here is iw config with space inbetween, I found out.

    iw config:

    nl80211 not found.


    what shall I do from here?

    thanks in advance

    Hello and Welcome. I think you should follow the link above and paste your output back into this thread. I have a similar device.
    Code:
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 050d:845a Belkin Components F7D2101deSH [rtl8192su]
    I'm actually using a module for a different card but it still works for me. It's called r8712u.

    Hi

    I have already posted in the Debian sub-forum:

    I thought I did posted the second one to the forum you directed me to, as the content refers to the sticky.
    Sorry, but I see the thread has been moved now.

    Sorry for the confusion. I merge the trheards here.
    I really think you have the same chip that I do. What happens when you type:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe r8712u
    If you get no response then open Network manager from the system tray and try to create a new wireless connection from there. Post any output you get.

    I have used as suggested

    modprobe r8712su
    Code:
    FATAL: Module r8712su not found.
    since I have installed net8192su.inf through ndiswrapper and it shows

    ndiswrapper -l
    Code:
    net8192su : driver installed
    	device (050D:945A) present
    I thought I might try modprobe for this one

    modprobe net8192su
    Code:
    FATAL: Module net8192su not found.
    thats very strange since ndiswrapper confirms the driver and the device

    and when running

    iw config
    Code:
    nl80211 not found.
    it is searching for a completely different module

    also no wlan0 is listed when using ifconfig, so it seems that although the wlan usb stick is connected and recognized it has not been written to the device list ... and I don't know how to do that manually ...

    networkmanager just adds a new connection without effect, because wlan0 is unknown, I guess

    It may be named differently on your system. Try this command.
    Code:
    locate 8712
    Post any output.

    ok, first I recieved this output

    locate 8712
    Code:
    bash: locate: command not found
    I installed locate and then it gave me no output, tried again after reboot but still the same

    ???

    It's probably not on your system. I had to recompile my kernel to get the 8712 module working but I haven't tried the latest kernel yet so hopefully the 8192 module works better than it used to.
    Ok since you already have NDISwrapper installed, I'd say go that route. Load ndiswrapper
    Code:
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    Check for problems
    Code:
    dmesg
    If no problems then you should be able to find the device in the network tool and create a new wireless connection.
