[SOLVED]TL-WN725N Nano USB Adapter

I have Dell Latitude D610 and installed BL-Hydrogen on it. However, my internal wireless card was not functioning even when this machine had Windows.

I bought the tp-link nano usb adapter. I tried to follow, but nothing.

Can anyone help me here, please?

Thanks a lot.

There are many steps in that guide.

You should post the *exact* commands that you used, along with any error messages (in full) so that we can see if you have gone wrong somewhere.

At any rate, the firmware you need should already be installed:
https://packages.debian.org/jessie/firmware-realtek

I suppose you could try a newer version of the package; download and install this .deb:
http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/pool … +1_all.deb

If that doesn't work, please plug in the device and post the output of:

For lsusb I get:

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

I used ... Full long version of how to: Step by step -

I just did these three:
A. apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
B. apt-get install build-essential
C. apt-get install git

So that headers are ready to install driver that works with TL-WN725N. I did not go further as I thought as there were missing packages, or something. Following is the output:

root@K-Labs:/home/khurram# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Re: [SOLVED]TL-WN725N Nano USB Adapter

^ Please use code tags for terminal output, it is much easier to read wink (See my sig for forum post formatting)

You need a network connection to use apt-get commands. Also, if you didn't have the card working during the installation, then the system would not have been fully installed.

You could try downloading the firmware-realtek deb in @HoaS's post on another machine (or use an ethernet connection on yours), and install it with gdebi.

NB If the debian package doesn't have the driver, then you don't need to install git, and clone the repo. Just d/l the zipfile from the github page, then extract the archive and run the 'make' commands from the extracted directory: https://github.com/lwfinger/rtl8188eu/a … master.zip

Re: [SOLVED]TL-WN725N Nano USB Adapter

Installing firmware-realtek solved the problem. Initially I downloaded and tried with tp-link.com version.

Help appreciated much, specially @HoaS  smile

Good news - I'll add [SOLVED] to the title for you. You can do it yourself next time, by editing the title of your first post wink
