install Realtek device 8176 (rev 01) on Lucid Lynx

Christian Meier
Hi,

I'm trying to install the following wireless card

   07:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. Device 8176 (rev 01)
   Subsystem: Dell Device 8194
   Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR-

on a Dell Inspiron Mini with Lucid Lynx and 2.6.32-41 kernel. The card used to work on 2.6.32-x kernels, probably with rtl8192ce driver.

Trying to compile 92ce_se_de_linux_mac80211_0005.1230.2011.tar.gz, RTL819xCU_USB_linux_v3.4.2_3727.20120404.zip and RTL819xSU_usb_linux_v2.6.6.0.20120405.zip fails on the affected machine. (I downloaded the kernel headers.)

What to do next? (Switching to Windows 7 is no option, although the card is working there.)

- Chris

You could try a newer kernel. 3 or 4 are in the repos: Lucid gets
backports of all the kernels from newer releases, so you can have
Maverick, Natty, Oneiric and possibly even Precise now - I've not
checked since it came out.

It seems to consist of python and shell scripts. How is it possible that it handles the hardware?

I personally swear by it, even for my wired needs. I seem to get better
throughput. Ric

But it doesn't help if the hardware isn't supported by the kernel and
that was the original problem of this thread.

It might help if you post the error message when compiling fails and a
link to the source files. And do you use the 32bit or 64bit kernel?

It doesn't. The "use WICD" answer was an incorrectly-triggered
pavlovian response that's an unfortunate but standard answer of the
type "it must be NM's fault, uninstall it and install WICD" when
someone's networking setup doesn't work.

It's often good advice, though. Well meaning, if nothing else. :) Ric

Thank you for all the replies!

I upgraded to Precise Pangolin (12.04 LTS). Everything worked out of the box. I haven't found a solution for this issue. I could recompile the driver (rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0006.0321.2011) I've already had for the old kernel.

I tried to upgrade the kernel, but something spoiled the old installation. Suspend-mode didn't work anymore and things like that. Precise Pangolin works fine. Unity is quite nice.

Isn't "rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0006.0321.2011" for 2.6.24 kernels and earlier?

I guess, yes. The readme only mentions Ubuntu 10.10 and earlier.

In Precise Pangolin the WLAN worked out of the box.

Before, I could compile the rtl8192ce_linux_2.6.0006.0321.2011. The other drivers I downloaded didn't even compile.

Easiest way is:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lexical/hwe-wireless
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rtl8192ce-dkms
 
If you already did that once then what you do with a new kernel is go into
synaptic package handler with the new kernel and using wired network
connection, type rtl in the quick search box and click reinstall on the
driver. Apply and a reboot should have your wireless working again!  As a side
note, they seem to have finally added it to the kernel in 12.04!!   ...but
kmail is a pain to get going.  :(
