wlan connection issues

Postby ozgta » 2017-02-16 22:33

Hi,
Running Stretch testing with xfce4
New installation.
During installation I chose to run the download using wlan. Wlan was recognized by the Debian installer and all went well.
After the installation I tried to connect via wlan however this fails.

Using realtek rtl8187B usb stick which has in the past been faultless and needs no configuration (this was used during the install)
$ lsusb recognizes the usb stick

Network manager recognizes the network SSID and I can enter the password however no connection.

iwconfig
Code: Select all
root@db64:/# iwconfig
enp2s0    no wireless extensions.

wlx00027298befc  IEEE 802.11  ESSID:off/any 
          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=20 dBm   
          Retry short limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off

         
lo        no wireless extensions.

root@db64:/#



00027298befc in the above is the Realtek usb device

All network packages were installed with the original installation so i do not believe I am missing any packages.

Any advice on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

There's been posts here about the 4.9 Stretch kernel breaking Realtek wifi devices because their USB ID numbers have been added to another kernel driver. What driver shows as being used for that device now with

@ marcetm,
Thanks I'll look at the topics.
I did try to sort this myself for two days and searched topics here...must have used the wrong search terms :)

Sure, the one it's trying to use is rtl8187

Code: Select all
Driver=rtl8187


That gives us something to start with.

OK, if you plug in the stick and then run "dmesg" as root in the terminal, do you see anything there at the end about the device?

Is the 4.8 kernel still available in Stretch? The 4.9 seems to causing this issue.

I have looked into the 4.8 kernel being available for stretch and from what my limited understanding tells me is....I'm not sure...I'm a bit out of my depth here :)

Does this look familiar? [SOLVED] WiFi package compile error after LXDE upgrade to kernel 4.9 Read this all the way through. It is a driver issue, not a kernel problem. The fix involves forcing the kernel to load a driver module at boot.

@ bulkley,
Thanks for the link, unfortunately in this instance it does not work.
I have been using the realtek 8187B for many years now on many Debian installs and it has proven to be faultless with no need for configuration.

lsusb recognizes the device.
The device recognizes the SSID
For me with my limited understanding this should be enough.....

I shall persevere....
