Mageia 2 - Toshiba Laptop - Wifi 8192CE

Recommended Posts

I tried to make the title searchable for Toshiba laptop and Mageia 2 & wifi. Mageia has a driver but it is in the wrong folder. rtl8192ce rtl8192se rtl8192de

 

It is in:

 

/lib/modules/3.3.6-desktop-2.mga2/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192ce/

 

Copy the file from there to:

 

 

/lib/modules/3.3.6-desktop-2.mga2/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/

 

It does not look in the /rtl8192CE sub folder for it.

 

I rebooted and it worked. If you have problems you can try downloading and compiling the driver.

 

You can also get a new driver from:

 

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=278&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true

 

I extracted it to /home/john/rt2 rt2 is just short for lazy sake

 

Open a konsole and do:

 

Su root

 

Enter root password.

 

type: cd /home/your user name/rt2/

 

Type: make

 

then

 

make install

 

I tried to be as clear as possible in case some new people find it and can't get their wifi going. I assume there a lot of Toshibas and other brands that use the Realtek chips covered by this driver.
