Thread: Netgear and TP-LINK TL-WN722N

  1. #1

    Default Netgear and TP-LINK TL-WN722N

    I'm trying to get tumbleweed(022018) version to install either of the 2 wireless USB adapters(Netgear A6210) or the TP Link (wn722N) drivers. I have download both relevant drivers from the github or TP-LINk and I can't make the files:

    I have installed all kernel source reinstall opensuse and still get below error on both drivers. Both devices are visible on lsusb.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks
    David

    They both come up with the following errors:
    tory '/usr/src/linux-4.15.3-1-obj/x86_64/default'

    Hi and welcome to the Forum
    The rtl8188ee driver is part of the kernel, what drivers are listed from the output of;
    Code:
    lsusb -t
    Maybe your just missing the firmware.... zypper in kernel-firmware

    Hi
    So it does see the r8188eu driver (this is in staging), so I'm guessing the issue is not working....?

    So what desktop environment are you using, how are you setting up the wireless, NetworkManager, Wicked, other?

    Default AW: Netgear and TP-LINK TL-WN722N

    Is the driver, you compile, patched for the newer kernels???

    Please post (with both Adapters inside)
    Code:
    lsusb
    To see the ID and maybe see, if there is an alternative driver.

    And please use Code-Tags for the Output.
