Thread: realtek wireless

  1. #1

    Default realtek wireless

    I have outdated drivers for realtek on an external hard drive (rtlwifi_new, rtl8723de) from a Mint 19.3 installation. How can I load and integrate these files into new Leap os so that my wireless will work?

    In general, you should try to find/use an openSUSE package first.
    https://software.opensuse.org/package/rtl8723de
    However, as openSUSE Leap 15.2 isn't yet released, you may need to compile a driver (assuming no in-kernel support exists).

    Do you have the chipset details for your wifi hardware to share?
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep iiA3 net
    openSUSE Leap 15.2; KDE Plasma 5

    RTL8723DE 802.11 b/g/n PCIe Adapter device identifier (spec) 99097 device identifier 120611 hwconfig bus: pci ran dmsg | grep firmware from lwfinger's set up wireless page, which I found after I posted: no mention of wireless, only bluetooth, said no need for more firmware rfkill list all: listed only bluetooth with no and no version is 15.1 installed. made a mistake there jumping between os's on a laptop. tried to transfer rtlwifi_new and rtl8723de from an external to lib/firmware: permission denied in lib/firmware is rtlwifi/rtl8723defw.bin: trying to open+=could not display rtl8723defw.bin, file is of an unknown type will try the download from open that you listed.

    That is not the output that I requested. Please be careful with your post formatting- it's difficult to read.

    Sorry about the difficulty reading. I entered the info as a vertical list. When I posted it posted differently. I'll try again. (new line) /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep iiA3net: gave me only a new command line as user and as root. (new line) downloaded file rtl8723de.ymp. next screen gave me about 8 files on the left and two update files on the right that told me they were downloaded and ready to build on.

    Did it again. Don't know what I'm doing wrong.
