Problems with wireless
August 11th, 2012
First of all I apologize for my bad bad english.
Right now I’m translating from Italian with Google Traslator.
I could not be recognized by the GeeXboX v2.0.1 none of my wireless cards:
– TP-Link TN-WL7200ND [Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter]
– Sitecom Europe BV WL-349v3 Wireless Micro Adapter 150N X1 [Realtek RTL8192SU].
Both work well under Linux, both are recognized by lsusb to GeeXboX but not by iwconfig, and the configuration file \ etc \ networks has already been set.
I want to print to file but dmesg does not know the procedure.
GeeXboX v2.0.1 has been uploaded on 2Gb usb pen drive using UNetbootin from Linux, and casper-rw file has a size of 1100 Mb.
Working Ethernet connection.
GeeXboX is in its original state, the only changes are:
– Changed file network;
– Loaded with opkg
– Addition of add-ons and unofficial repositories.
I read the other posts here on the particular forum of problems on the wireless but I have helped solve my problem.
I love GeeXboX since version 1.2.4, and I would keep it forever.
I hope that I helped to solve this problem as soon as possible.
I have same problem too…
I bought 2 USB dongle, first one the ebay cheapest, second one the officially supported König Electronic WLAN USB DONGLE 150 MBPS (CMP-WNUSB22) (http://www.solid-run.com/mw/index.php/Accessories#WiFi_USB_Dongles).
Both are same wifi processor: Realtek RTL8192SU and neither function.
I asked to thomlohave which model works with Geexbox, answare is ‘D-Link tipically works’. I’m waiting a pack from united states containinig a D-Link micro usb… but I suppose it have same wifi processor: Realtek RTL8192SU.
When it will arrive , I update you…
