I just installed opensuse 13.2 on my desktop PC. I connect to the internet only through a wifi card Realtek RTL8191S. Apparently, there is not a pre-installed driver; therefore I need an OFFLINE (standalone) driver (I can download it elsewhere, but it should work on an offline PC). I searched for help online but I could not find anything satisfying. Thanks for your help.
Can you please post the exact model? Either the output of “/sbin/lspci -nnk” (for an internal adapter) or “lsusb” should do.
I don’t find anything about the RTL8191S, but the RTL8191SE and RTL8191SU should be supported out-of-the-box without installing any driver.
One note though: if you think there is no pre-installed driver because your desktop’s networkmanagement icon does not work, then switch from “Wicked Service” to NetworkManager in YaST->Network Devices->Network Settings->Global Options, or configure the wireless connection in YaST.
Hi, and thanks for the fast answer. I cannot answer to your question, because when I typed on terminal “hwinfo --wlan --short”, what I got was simply “realtek RTL8191S”.On the card itself there is nothing helpful, there’s written only “EMTEC 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN USB”.
EDIT: while writing what I was writing, I searched about EMTEC 802.11b/g/n and I got this. So, it seems to be SU. Therefore, I found and tried out this driver but it does not seem to work. Thanks for your help.
I just performed the installation via DVD, so, if the full kernel is present on that, yes, otherwise no. I cannot install anything else directly on that PC because it is offline. If it is possible to install the full kernel via a standalone installer, that I can download from an other computer, then I can do it. Thanks for your help.
