Thread: D-Link key not recognised by SLES 12.1

  1. D-Link key not recognised by SLES 12.1

    hello

    I use sles 12.1, with gnome
    the network manager is networkmanager without ipv6.

    I use the wifi key D-Link dwa-110(driver rt73usb)
    I removed the wifi key and now its light is off.
    the tray icon shows me 2 computer screens and a red cross telling me there is no wireless network detected, although a mac and a windows computers can connect to the router, a livebox with WEP key.

    can you help me?

    the command hwinfo is telling me that the device usb 0x03c07, "802.11 bg WLAN" is recognised, with the config status : active=unknown, cfg=new, avail=yes, need=no

    Hi
    There is no SLES 12.1 (well not for a few years anyway....) Sure it's
    not openSUSE 12.1?

    Code:
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    If it's 12.1, then you need to repost in the openSUSE wireless subforum
    at http://forums.opensuse.org

    yes you're right!
    it's SLES 11, I'm a little it confused among the various OS and their versions.

    Hi
    Looks like you would need to build the driver and install the firmware;
    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/rt73usb

    It's not in the 2.6.32 kernel, but is in later versions.... might want
    to wait for SP2 too appear?

    There is a src rpm, but would need to track it down and you would need
    to rebuild and install?

  5. Re: D-Link key not recognised by SLES 12.1

    well I already tried to compile the rt73usb driver, and the serialmonkey one, named rt2x00, but in SLES I have an error during "make" : (...) building modules, stage 2. MODPOST 0 modules (...) rt73.ko failed to build!

  6. Re: D-Link key not recognised by SLES 12.1

    the command hwinfo --wlan returns nothing : the card isn't recognised

    Hi
    You need to probably export some of the config options in the Makefile.
    Can you post the Makefile on http://paste.opensuse.org/ or similar.
    Note, please set the expiry date to never in the dropdown.

    Hi
    OK, you need to rebuild the src rpm from here;
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...umbleweed/src/

    Try the rt73-cvs-2009030304-10.27.src.rpm one first;

    Code:
    rpmbuild --rebuild  rt73-cvs-2009030304-10.27.src.rpm
    else grab the compat-wireless-2.6.36.1-15.2.src.rpm as this also
    contains the rt73 driver.

    The rpm's when build will reside down in /usr/src/packages/RPMS for you
    to install manually.

    stop!
    I installed oracle enterprise linux.
    the compilation of the constructor's driver for linux succeeded.

    but SLES is very nice, I have to choose between the two distros.
    I will tell you in a few days if I try with SLES.

    thanks anyway!

    Hi
    No worries, what kernel is it running? If it's a 3.x one, you should be
    fine as the driver is there, I would recommend you wait fro SLE Sp2 to
    arrive as it has support for your driver....
