Thread: No connections with a wifi dongle

  1. #1

    Default No connections with a wifi dongle

    Hi, I run KDE Plasma on Tumbleweed. I have a problem with a wifi dongle: if I go to Yast -> Network settings I set the address via DHCP, but if I go to the "Wireless" tab and then I click on "Choose the net" I got "RTNETLINK answers: Operation not permitted". This is the same from terminal:

    Code:
    /usr/sbin/ip link set wlp0s18f2u6 up
    RTNETLINK answers: Operation not permitted
    So it seems it doesn't find any net, and this is the same via NetworkManager. I tried to toggle wifi on and off, and the airplane mode too from the tray bar widget, but it didn't help.


    Some more information:

    Default Re: No connections with a wifi dongle

    To me the problem seems to be:

    state change: unmanaged -> unavailable (reason 'managed', sys-iface-state: 'external')

    Question is who.what is already managing the interface.

    Default AW: No connections with a wifi dongle

    You can also delete the rtl8188eu packages and install from git:
    https://github.com/kelebek333/rtl8188fu

    because:
    {USB_DEVICE_AND_INTERFACE_INFO(USB_VENDER_ID_REALTEK, 0xF179, 0xff, 0xff, 0xff), .driver_info = RTL8188F}, /* 8188FU 1*1 */
    See:

    Thank you both! But now I have another question: since I'm not skilled with compilation, and it doesn't seem the installation instructions in that page are suitable for opensuse too, how should I do to get the driver installed?

    I have updated the rtl8188eu today, maybe you can use the new kmp before you would compile another driver?
