Rtl8192cu enables?


#1

Can I get to run this wlan0? And how? Pretty good system, BTW…

I’m not sure the state of all Realtek networking cards on Haiku, but my advice would be to try running install_wifi_firmwares.sh from the Terminal with an active, wired/Ethernet connection, then restart the computer. Hopefully, Haiku should recognize your wireless card. If it doesn’t, sometimes it might help to switch the card out.

Hello and welcome!

In this link will found some useful information:

The rtl8192cu should work out of the box. It’s supported with the urtwn(4) driver by FreeBSD and therefore by Haiku.

Only for these chipsets you need to run the install-wifi-firmwares.sh due to licensinsanity:

  • Intel ipw2100
  • Intel ipw2200/2225/2915
  • Broadcom 43xx
  • Marvell 88W8335

So I’m trying to bring up Haiku OS from Aqemu on an Reborn OS custom. VBox isn’t at the beta for me. Hungs up on the blue screen with mouse enabled (sometimes). Refund and GRUB not working on EFI, gpt not even with Jessica’s built… Best I got was booting up the ISO image till USB initialization from ssd.

Did work in VM, but without Internet, but Ether, no gateway at 192.168.8.1 as a lack of a stolen sd-ARM-image…

So whatta do?


#6

Did you give enough memory to your Haiku VM in Vbox? Sounds like it ran out of memory and coudn’t do anything in your case.


#7

Well, right! It’s just a small ssd…
now it works… gonna improve internet.

freebsd15 hung up same way in Vm with installing X.Org as a lack of space…

tomorrow gonna try out script…
sys connected but gateway doesn’t connect.

If you run Haiku as virtual machine then Haiku CAN’T and WON’T see your real wlan. But Aquemu CAN virtualize a wired-NIC for you, so the real question is:

  • Does Aqemu virtualizes any wired NIC in default? Check the Devices in Haiku.
  • If not, read the Aqemu documentation to enable it.
  • If it emulates a wired NIC, what kind of? Check the Devices in Haiku.
  • Does Haiku support it? Check the Networking preflet in Haiku, is the emulated NIC visible there?
  • If not visible, is it possible to switch Aqemu to emulate other wired NIC? Read the Aquemu docs.

TLDR: no wlan in Aqemu. Use emulated wired NIC. Get know how emulation/virtualization works. Read docs.

What does this look like?

#10

This is bad advice at this point; only some ancient chipsets from ~2009-2010 or so require these firmwares. All other drivers, including realtekwifi, include their firmware on the image already.


#11

For Haiku networking in VBox, make sure you set your VB machine settings to use the Intel PRO MT desktop NIC under (Settings->Network->Advanced) and use bridged adapter instead of NAT. Perhaps Aqemu has a similar setting?


#12

Thanks; I will remember this in the future. :smile:


#13

about the driver (urtwn):
I understand that you are porting BSD drivers 12.
Do you plan to wear the rtwn driver (# 8023)?
Thank you
