Comment: Install to /lib/firmware: Debian's udev firmware loading agent (firmware.agent) was replaced by systemd's upstream builtin (50-firmware.rules) post-Wheezy, which does not search /usr.

Intersil ISL3877, ISL3880, ISL3886, ISL3887, ISL3890 devices (Prism54)

This page describes how to enable support for WiFi devices based on Prism54 chipsets on Debian systems.

Drivers

p54 is a driver supporting Intersil/Conexant Prism54 802.11g wireless LAN chipsets, introduced in the Linux kernel at version 2.6.24.

The produced kernel modules are:

  • p54pci (supported devices)

    • Supports PCI, Mini PCI and CardBus devices with an ISL3877, ISL3880, ISL3886 or ISL3890 chipset.

  • p54usb (supported devices)

    • Supports USB first (ISL3886 chipset) and second (ISL3887 chipset) generation devices.

p54pci and p54usb require non-free firmware, which must be installed for device operation. Device firmware is not packaged (481234).

The obsolete prism54 driver (supporting PCI devices with an ISL3877, ISL3880 or ISL3890 chipset) is disabled in Debian Linux kernel images.1

{i} Prism 2/2.5/3 802.11b devices are supported by the hostap and linux-wlan-ng drivers.

p54pci

p54pci is included as a module in Debian Linux kernel images. Firmware is required for device operation.

  1. Install the ca-certificates package:

    apt-get install ca-certificates
  2. Acquire and install firmware:

    wget -O /lib/firmware/isl3886pci https://daemonizer.de/prism54/prism54-fw/fw-softmac/2.13.25.0.arm
  3. As the p54pci module is automatically loaded for supported devices, reinsert this module to access installed firmware:

    modprobe -r p54pci ; modprobe p54pci
  4. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.

p54usb

p54usb is included as a module in Debian Linux kernel images. Firmware is required for device operation.

First generation USB devices (ISL3886 with net2280 bridge)

  1. Install the ca-certificates package:

    apt-get install ca-certificates
  2. Acquire and install firmware:

    wget -O /lib/firmware/isl3886usb https://daemonizer.de/prism54/prism54-fw/fw-usb/2.13.1.0.lm86.arm
  3. As the p54usb module is automatically loaded for supported devices, reinsert this module to access installed firmware:

    modprobe -r p54usb ; modprobe p54usb
  4. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.

Second generation USB devices (ISL3887)

  1. Install the ca-certificates package:

    apt-get install ca-certificates
  2. Acquire and install firmware:

    wget -O /lib/firmware/isl3887usb https://daemonizer.de/prism54/prism54-fw/fw-usb/2.13.25.0.lm87.arm
  3. As the p54usb module is automatically loaded for supported devices, reinsert this module to access installed firmware:

    modprobe -r p54usb ; modprobe p54usb
  4. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.
