1 1566


I am trying to get a wifi usb dongleworking on a bananapi device.

Device: Bus 004 Device 002: ID 0bda:8172Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8191SU 802.11n WLAN Adapter

Module r8712u is correctly auto loaded

Module                 Size  Used by

r8712u               156848  0

mali_drm               2608  0

drm                  209226  1 mali_drm

mali                 111427  0

ump                   52415  1 mali

But from dmesg I am getting followingerror:

[   24.396715] r8712u: moduleis from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.

[   25.690621] r8712u: Firmwarerequest failed

[   25.703245] usbcore:registered new interface driver r8712u

I am not able to find rtlwifi formware inany of your repositories … I am not even able to find kernel sources to try torecompile the firmare myself for arm-v7

My Kernel: 3.4.103

Linux version 3.4.103 (bananapi@lemaker)(gcc version 4.6.3 (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.6.3-1ubuntu5)

Is there anyway I can get this working?

Upgrading to a newer kernel could solve problem (may be firmware has been added?)

Thanks in advance,


Update: looking around I have found that I already have /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/rtl8712u.bin installed in the system.
What is happening?
