Setting up WiFi on the Organelle

The U just happened today…
just as you say its…not showing the Network correctly…its a known bug?

what should i try next?

maybe a fresh install? or a way to install the driver in terminal inside the Organelle?
there must be a way its archlinux and there is a terminal like in osx
you just need the right code;)

@slimak What is the chipset?

Some more info here:

its exactly one of those for even less then 10 euros…its a

Asus USB-N10 Nano

is it this chipset? unfortunately i don´t have the package anymore

lets hack it…

this says its a RTL8188CUS
you can see on this page its supported from kernel 4.1x so the 3.14 kernel used will not work.

thats said this is not gospel… if you run my DiagnosticLog tool, this this would give us the definitive answer.
though probably not much point… as if its not working, then the most likely reason is the kernel does not support it.

this is one of the reasons for my ‘upgrade project’

ive already found on this project that wifi sticks that did not work on the current OS work perfectly on the this newer OS… so the future is bright :wink:

however, this is a little way off yet… i need to complete the packaging, and then need to do extensive testing to ensure that the performance is at least comparable with the current OS.
(early indications are good, but more testing required to be sure)
I guess, i will release this as a ‘beta’ when its close, but Im not at this stage yet…

DiagnosticLog Tool says : (3.5 KB)

ok, its using a Realtek RTL8192CU

a quick search on google, shows countless people having troubles with this, and having to recompile the kernel with fixes to get it to work.

as you’ll see in my above thread , and also this one, we dont have access to the correct headers for the current build… so this is not really an option (and certainly not one Im personally willing to explore)

so unfortunately, my only suggestions are wait for the new OS (assuming we get there ) , and get another wifi stick as per recommendation in the meantime… which costs < $10 :wink:

sorry for late reply and thanks for helping…
is there a list here somewhere with working wifi sticks?

cause me exploring kernel stuff and do that copy - paste - enter terminal thing
always ends bad…:laughing:

or should i simply wait for the update,
or think about doing your supercharged - organelle
with bulit in wifi 4core & 2gig ram?

the recommended on is described here:

its cheap, and we know it works :slight_smile:

supercharged organelle is cool… and easy to do , you just need to source the microSOM as per my other post.
there is only one small ‘flaw’ , that is when the organelle is ‘cold’ , you need to power it up twice, its not an issue… just a small oddity, id hoped the new kernel would fix, it but doesn’t appear to, so not sure if its hardware issue.
id love someone to do a test with the dual core, and dual core lite… perhaps one of these doesnt have this minor issue… so would perhaps be a better solution for others.

Hey guys, I finally got the wifi to connect. I found that the SSID info on the usb was case sensitive! I hope this helps anyone else.

Hi guys,
having some trouble while setting up Wi-Fi: double checked the obvious things after reading here (SSID case sensitive, no third line in the WiFi.txt etc…).
Here’s my wifi_log:
Cannot find device “wlan0”
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
Could not read interface wlan0 flags: No such device
nl80211: Driver does not support authentication/association or connect commands
Could not read interface wlan0 flags: No such device
Could not read interface wlan0 flags: No such device
WEXT: Could not set interface ‘wlan0’ UP
wlan0: Failed to initialize driver interface
wlan0: interface not found or invalid
dhcpcd exited

Is anybody able to help me?
Thanks in advance!!

What is your WiFi dongle? Chipset? Trying to connect to a 5G router? this won’t work.
This is not interpreting the log file, sorry…

Don’t be sorry, and thanks for tryin to help out.
The wireless network is a 2.4G.
The dongle is a “D-Link Wireless N Nano USB Adapter (DWA-131)”:

Ooops, I was wrong - it’s this one:

I just noticed that the green LED is not on when I plug it to the Organelle (didn’t see before as the USB orientation is upside down on the Orgy ;-))…I’m afraid it points out that the problem is with the dongle itself…

ummm insufficient power? or the chipset Realtek RTL8192EU…

Actually, it says it’s only “windows compatible”, and it doesn’t even work on my Mac.
I guess the only option is to go back to the shop and then look for something that a google search would confirm being linux compatible…:frowning: My bad, I had to check more carefully before buying…Thanks anyway!

yep, not the end-of-the-world; just search here for one that works :wink: and stay away from certain chipsets.
Best of luck !

Do you guys know if the Netgear N300 (WNA3100M) or the
Would work?

Netgear WNA3100M
It seems this uses the same non supported Realtek RTL8192EU chipset

Don’t know if it works or not…

If you are going to use Amazon, why not get this one - its official, its the one I got… and it works!!

Yep, I guess I’ll just go for Amazon rather than the local shop and buy the Raspberry one…thanks!
