[SOLVED]wlan and debian wheezy

Postby pythagorasmk » 2020-02-04 13:01

I have installed debian wheezy on old computer. I cannot configure wlan interface using network manager. I cannot set Ad-Hoc setting in options. The save button is grayed and I cannot click save. What can I do?

1) Have you changed the sources list to include contrib and non-free?
2) Have you discovered the wifi chip?
3) Have you installed the correct wifi firmware?

1) I cannot find mirror for wheezy
2) Yes rtl8192eu
3) I have installed firmware-realtek from Jessie (8.0)

If you need to access one of the old distributions of Debian, you can find them at the Debian Archives, http://archive.debian.org/debian/.

More details here:

https://www.debian.org/distrib/archive
OS: Debian 10.3 Buster / WM: xmonad

I Have added this line in /etc/network/interfaces
allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid myssid
wpa-psk mypsk

After ifup wlan0 I get this error mesage:
wpa_supplicant: /sbin/wpa_supplicant daemon failed to start
run-parts: /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wpasupplicant exited with return code 1

What is the problem?

You will most likely have to build the driver for that chip as it is not in the kernel for Wheezy.
Follow instructions here - https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver
“ computer users can be divided into 2 categories:
Those who have lost data
...and those who have not lost data YET ”
Remember to BACKUP!
