    Default WIFI HELP! AWLL6075

    Hi i have the airlink wifi usb AWLL6075 chip. I have tried several different steps online in order to get it working but i can't. I am running opensuse 11.4 kde.

    I believe it either has chipset RTL8188su or RTL8192su

    Does anyone know how to get it installed?

    Ok, so i clicked on the yast2 hardware information

    it finds RTL8188S wireless adapter (wlan1)
    and it says its using kernel driver r812u
    under the drivers part of it it says driver is active and modprobe is yes

    yet on the networkmanagement, it doesn't really show if there is a wifi and wireless is shown as disabled (and thats kind of greyed out - doesnt let me click on enable)

    32 or 64 no matter

    try:

    sudo /sbin/modprobe -v r812u

    make sure your wireless switch is ON

    my wireless usb is plugged in (not on because they only turn on once driver is found.

    it says FATAL: Module r812u not found.

    The driver is r8712u, not r812u.

    Yes, it works with 64-bit systems. I submitted that driver to the staging
    directory, and I have both 64- and 32-bit systems for testing.

    Does 'dmesg | grep firmware' show anything? There is a switch from firmware
    embedded in the driver to firmware in /lib/firmware/rtlwifi, and I'm not sure if
    that change propagated to openSUSE's kernel yet. If the firmware is missing,
    install the kernel-firmware package. While you are installing stuff, also
    install the rfkill package. You can then test the switches with
    '/usr/sbin/rfkill list'.
