    Unhappy Drivers for ASUS wireless USB Adapter - Installation Help on suse linux

    Dear Experts,

    I have recently purchased ASUS Wireless usb adapter N-13 (802.11 b/g/n) . I have tried installing realtek drivers that comes with CD for linux, but since they are for 32 bit they dint work i guess. I get the error same as in https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...-x86_64-a.html.

    Below is the output of lsusb

    Bus 002 Device 005:ID 0b05:17ab ASUSTek Computer , Inc.

    I am running Suse Linux X86_64 . Suse 12

    uname -r ouput

    3.0.13-0.27-default

    I am not a linux expert , but i need to get this worked ASAP, earlier i got TP link adapter and it dint work too. Please help me with correct driver and installation instructions

    Thanks
    Rav

    Hello new member and welcome here.
    To get the best help, there are a few basics here. One of them is to tell what version of openSUSE you use.

    It says you use a 64-bit version, but Suse 12 Is not very exact. There is openSUSE (not Suse) 12.1, 12.2 and 12.3. When you do not know, then use
    Code:
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    to find out.

    And when you post computer text here there is a feature that is not obvious to find (thus we have to explain it to you), but please use CODE tags. You get CODE tags by clicking on the # button in tool bar of the pot editor. And please the copy/paste from your terminal window the prompt, the command, the output and the next prompt directly between the tags. It will amongst other things spare you to tell "uname -r output", because that is then obvious. My example:
    Code:
    henk@boven:~> uname -r
    3.4.47-2.38-desktop
    henk@boven:~>

    Hi
    Hopefully one of the driver developers will post some info since he does frequent these fora.

    Unfortunately it looks like PCI ID 0B05:17AB in the rtl8192cu kernel module is not supported in the 3.0.x kernels....

    If you were using openSUSE, I would recommend installing the latest
    compat-wireless package. Perhaps that will work with SuSE, but perhaps not.

    i am really not sure which is the latest compat-wireless, i see lots of drivers at Realtek site which supports kernel version 3.0, 3.2, will they work for this device and for 64 bit ? Where can i get latest compat-wireless package

    @Driver developers - Please help
