[SOLVED] RTL8191SE work, netrorkManager don't see wire

Postby uBaLd » 2010-08-02 16:23

Hello ! I just install the driver from Realtek for the RTL8191SE wireless card on a Thinkpad x100e with Squeeze 32 bit.

http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=48&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#RTL8191SE-VA2

ok before building Realtek I had to install linux-headers of my kernel (uname -r) and make sure the link build is there ! Mine was not there !! Don't know why !
So I did it with ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686 build


ls -l /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/

Code: Select all
total 2384
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     36 31 jui 14:27 build -> /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686/
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root   4096 20 jui 22:26 kernel
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 579867  2 aoû 11:27 modules.alias
...
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root     38 21 jui 12:29 source -> /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-5-common


then

make
make install


I had a problem with netrorkManager not seeing wifi but it is solve (see post 2).
Now my problem is that NetwoakManager don't see land connection (see post 3)

I also tried wifi-radar and after a while, it auto-dected the wireless ! But not Network-Manager !!

Re: Wirless RTL8191SE work, netrorkManager don't see annything

Postby uBaLd » 2010-08-03 00:40

Ok my bad :oops: . I had previously modify the file

/etc/network/interfaces to add the line

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp

now my /etc/network/interfaces is back to normal setting and its like this

Code: Select all
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp


and the networkmanager work fine

Dose some one know why adding the lines like I did make NetworkManager not work ?

An other thing my wire connection never showed in NetworkManager even when it was connected. Now that my wifi work I tried to deactivate the wireless to see if lan still work but it don't unless I boot up whit it.

Ok for land connection I added these package

apt-get install wpasupplicant ifplugd guessnet resolvconf

like said in http://www.debian-administration.org/article/Network_profiles_for_a_laptop

So now if I unplug my land connection go some were else and plug again it do the ifdown and up for me and land connection is easy.

No need of editing file for me.

But netrorkManager still don't see the land connection. So if I want to send mail with Evolution I need to connect to the wireless cause land work but it is not notify by netrorkManager nor by Evolution.

If some one know how to solve this your welcome. :o

commenting the line in the file /etc/network/interfaces

Code: Select all
# allow-hotplug eth0
# iface eth0 inet dhcp

perfectly work after a reboot or after:

su -c "/etc/init.d/network-manager stop"
su -c "/etc/init.d/network-manager start"



Tanks for the information
