Hi All

Just had a reply from edimax saying their driver only supports up to v3.13 not v4.0 as yet, so absolutely no idea what you do now.
Cheers :D

In a terminal -

Code: [Select]
uname -r
will give you your kernel version.

Then use linux-headers-<kernel version> with apt.

There is a way to use the "uname -r" command with apt so it's just one command, but I can't recall it right now so I gave you the two-step process.
I am tired of talk that comes to nothing.

Hi Folks

@ PackRat, Thanks for that, It said that I already had the latest headers installed, still it helped me out anyway

@ hakerdefo,

I see you were testing me out  :D I managed to find the deliberate mistake in the end took a few goes though, the space after pvaret

Code: [Select]
root@gordon:/home/gordon# git clone  https://github.com/pvaret /rtl8192cu-fixes.git
Cloning into '/rtl8192cu-fixes.git'...
fatal: repository 'https://github.com/pvaret/' not found

root@gordon:/home/gordon# sudo dkms add ./rtl8192cu-fixes
Error! DKMS tree already contains: 8192cu-1.10
You cannot add the same module/version combo more than once.
root@gordon:/home/gordon# sudo dkms install 8192cu/1.10
Module 8192cu/1.10 already installed on kernel 4.0.0-1-amd64/x86_64
root@gordon:/home/gordon# sudo depmod -a
root@gordon:/home/gordon# sudo cp ./rtl8192cu-fixes/blacklist-native-rtl8192.conf /etc/modprobe.d/

Well I will run your last command now and see what happens. will let you know shortly.
Cheers :D

Hi hakerdefo

Sorry to say that it did not work, not surprised really as I had run them all before with no luck. I did it just in case I had done something wrong.
another question about it. It seems to have blacklist all over the place blacklisting the driver. it is in /usr/src, /etc/modprobe.d 2 or 3 times and in /home/gordon/rtl8192cu-fixes is this as it should be
Cheers :D

Hey Gordon sorry for the typo! I wasn't testing you, it was unintensional.
Now coming back to your problem, let's try another approach. First remove the stuff we installed,
Code: [Select]
sudo dkms uninstall 8192cu-1.10
Code: [Select]
sudo dkms remove 8192cu-1.10
Code: [Select]
sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-native-rtl8192.confNext install an older but lts kernel and it's headers,
Download it from here,
http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20150426T123124Z/pool/updates/main/l/linux/kernel-image-3.2.0-4-amd64-di_3.2.68-1%2Bdeb7u1_amd64.udeb
http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20150426T123124Z/pool/updates/main/l/linux/linux-headers-3.2.0-4-all-amd64_3.2.68-1%2Bdeb7u1_amd64.deb
Next install these packages using 'sudo dpkg -i package_name' command. Ofcourse change 'package_name' with the actual path and name of the packages you have downloaded. Once you have installed the 'image' and 'headers' packages, update grub via,
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grubAnd restart the pc and from grub menu boot into kernel 3.2 instead of 4.0 and check if the dongle works or not.
Cheers!!!

Hi hakerdefo

Thanks for that, guessed it was just a typo in the end  :)

Here is the result of the first three commands you posted

Code: [Select]
gordon@gordon:~$ sudo dkms uninstall 8192cu-1.10
[sudo] password for gordon:
Error! Invalid number of arguments passed.
Usage: uninstall <module>/<module-version> or
       uninstall -m <module>/<module-version> or
       uninstall -m <module> -v <module-version>
gordon@gordon:~$ sudo dkms remove 8192cu-1.10
Error! Invalid number of parameters passed.
Usage: remove <module>/<module-version> --all
   or: remove <module>/<module-version> -k <kernel-version>
gordon@gordon:~$ sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-native-rtl8192.conf

where it says module does it mean the directory ?


Cheers :D

The problem is currently I don't have access to a linux machine so I am not able to validate the suggestions before posting :(
Anyways try these commands and if they succeed download and install kernel and headers packages as described in my last post.
Code: [Select]
sudo dkms uninstall 8192cu/1.10
Code: [Select]
sudo dkms remove 8192cu/1.10Cheers!!!

Hi hakerdefo

There is a problem with the download of http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20150426T123124Z/pool/updates/main/l/linux/linux-headers-3.2.0-4-all-amd64_3.2.68-1%2Bdeb7u1_amd64.deb it keeps coming up with dependency errors. I have tried it several times, the other part downloaded and installed OK.
I can't seem to find it in synaptic
Cheers :D

Hey Gordon for now we can do without 'headers' package. Just run,
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grubAnd reboot. From the grub menu boot into kernel 3.2 instance of vsido and test your edimax.
Cheers!!!

Hi hakerdefo

below is what I get when I run the commands.

Gordon it seems something prevented kernel from installing completely. Currently it doesn't seem installed. So let's first make sure nothing is broken or half-installed.
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get clean
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoclean
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremove
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get --fix-broken install
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure --pendingAnd then using file manager navigate to folder where you've downloaded kernel 3.2 and doubleclick on it. VSIDO comes with gdebi so you can install .deb packages by doubleclicking. gdebi also features dependency resolution. Once kernel is installed update grub and restart and boot into 3.2 from grub menu.
If for some reason the above doesn't work, download puppy from here,
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/puppy-slacko-5.7/slacko-5.7.0-PAE.iso
This puppy comes with kernel 3.10.32. Next burn puppy iso to cd or make a bootable pendrive (you can use Rufus) and boot puppy and test edimax and also your connection speed.
By the way ISPs advertise connection speeds in megabits (Mb). A 50 Mb connection will give you download speed of 6.25 MB (megabytes) as 1 byte = 8 bits.
Cheers!!!
