Is that the only file in /lib/firmware/rtlwifi
? There should be 4 rtl8192* files as well (and it should also have put RTL8192SU
directories under /lib/firmware
However, the relevant thing is whether you end up with a wlan0 device. I presume that ifconfig
isn't showing anything (and that is what you mean when you say "but still no wlan of any flavor")?
What kernel are you using? I have a dual-band Buffallo Wireless-N Nfiniti running on mine, and that needed a 3.x kernel to get it going (so I run the cbxbiker61 kernels
). That also needed a firmware file (rt2870.bin, but I had to get the one from the kernel git download last October to get that running).
