USB Dongle fully working
October 4, 2012 at 01:50 #4765
Someone know a USB Wifi dongle fully working with GeexBox on Cubox?
My only request is that it dosen’t be a realtek product : I have a lot of problems with theirs product…October 4, 2012 at 02:33 #4768
I managed to get a cheap USB dongle of dealextreme (http://dx.com/p/super-mini-usb-2-0-802-11n-g-b-150mbps-wifi-wlan-wireless-network-adapter-35897?item=61) working after modifying the networking script (see the Geexbox thread on Solid-Run forum on how I did it). However this realtek chip was not stable on the Cubox, as soon as I tried to copy a movie (via ftp or samba), it went offline after 5 minutes transferring and it didn’t came back. So indeed perhaps avoid Realtek. Now I use a Philips Wifi to utp ethernet hardware receiver in the mean time without any issues. I am also interested to know which (cheap) wifi dongle has stable results.October 4, 2012 at 02:38 #4771
Thank you for your answare.
The thread that you talk about is http://www.solid-run.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=740&p=4156&hilit=jschaeke#p4156 one?October 4, 2012 at 03:04 #4772
yep on page 9 I posted the script and finally I just edited the networking.service file to launch that one instead of the standard network config script (you could also disable the standard one and create a new service like in my post). I tried in the latest Geexbox 3.0 to use the standard way again (either by xbmc config screen and as 2nd option editing /etc/networking) but both configurations didn’t work out for me.March 20, 2013 at 12:58 #6074
I’m new here and a newbie into Linux wolrd. But I’m trying to learn better every attempt I try on it!
So I’ve bought a CuBox with 1GB ram and Linux version 3.5.7 (geexbox@SolidRun-PC) (gcc version 4.6.4 20121001 (prerelease) (Linaro GCC 4.6-2012.10).
I’ve the same problems with usb dongle: no way out! I’ve an old usb dongle (Edimax 7315Ug with Atheros AR5523 inside) and with ndiswrapper I used it fine with Ubuntu 32bit x86: so why don’t use it with CuBox?
I’ve tried searching something on the web but… nothing useful. My questions are:
- is there any chance to build/make or similar into ARM geexbox from any source (code, debian, etc…); I mean the “usual” make/make install?
- is there some module-assistent opk to install?
I must admit the best would be an ARM ndiswrapper but till then I’m keep on trying and if I could, I’d like to share my poor results with you.
Thanks in advance

For example I’ve found these packages from the Official wifi Linux drivers site:
- compat-wireless-3.5.4-1.tar.bz2\compat-wireless-3.5.4-1\drivers\net\wireless\ath\ar5x (with the complete internal path);
As reported from the site itself, they’re different due the different kernel linux.
How they could be useful?May 5, 2013 at 11:36 #6376
Here my experience:
- the Atheros chipset AR5523 on the Edimax 7315Ug (my first dongle and now my brother’s dongle) doesn’t work/recognized;
- the Ralink RT2571WF on the D-Link G-122 (my brother’s old dongle) doesn’t work properly. I’ve seen the excact problem just posted from @jschaeke (the second post here);
- the Realtek RTL8192C on the Atlantis micro usb dongle (my pc dongle) doesn’t work/recognized.
Now I use on CuBox (before the problem with connman) a WUSB Linksys with a up-to-date Ralink chipset with no problem
I hope may helpOctober 11, 2013 at 08:26 #7078
Is there a sw for geexbox (CuBox) like inSSIDer for PC?
I mean I’d like to have a feedback about my signal strenght from wifi dongle: is it possible?
Tnx in advance
