    Unhappy Need help with RTL8188SU

    At the beginning - this are my first steps with linux so my knowledge is limited, also sorry for my english.

    I bought Pentagram P6132-10 USB Wireless cards with RTL8188SU chipset. To find drivers for it I have did update and upgrade of BT4 - without positive result. On the net I found dedicated drivers with inside *.tar.gz file. Inside archive I found also installation documentation and following it:

    Part 1: make 8712 USB Linux driver

    step1: uncompress the “rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.xxxx.2010 xxxx.tar.gz” file. (in “driver” directory)
    > tar zxvf rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 511.tar.gz

    "driver directory" - exactly don't know which one is proper so I was trying direct on root, and also in /usr/src/drivers/compat-wireless-2010-07-10/drivers/net/wireless

    step2: make 8712 USB driver module
    > make

    root@bt:~/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 511# make

    make ARCH=i386 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/2.6.34/build M=/root/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 511 mod
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.34'

    WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.34/Module.symvers
    is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.

    And log of unpacking files

    step3: clean the operation environment
    > ./clean

    After execute this command popup:

    root@bt:~/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 511# ./clean
    ERROR: Module r8192s_usb does not exist in /proc/modules
    ERROR: Module ieee80211_rsl does not exist in /proc/modules
    ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_ccmp does not exist in /proc/modules
    ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip does not exist in /proc/modules
    ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt_wep does not exist in /proc/modules
    ERROR: Module ieee80211_crypt does not exist in /proc/modules

    following procedure next step is

    step4: insert 8712 USB modules
    > insmod 8712u.ko

    root@bt:~/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 511# insmod 8712u.ko
    insmod: error inserting '8712u.ko': -1 File exists

    step5: enable wlan0 interface
    > ifconfig wlan0 up

    root@bt:~/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 511# ifconfig wlan0 up

    root@bt:~/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 511# airmon-ng start wlan0

    Interface Chipset Driver

    And that's it - the backtrack can't find my USB wireless card. At this moment also I reboot Backtrack and result is this same. What I'm doing wrong ? Could anyone guide me how to correct install drivers ?

    Hi Maciek,

    I have the same issue and I have detailed the problem here:

    We'll have to wait for someone to bring out drivers which support Monitoring Mode for the rtl8188su chipset. How annoying!!
