Realtek RTL8180L, RTL8185L, RTL8187L, RTL8187B, RTL8187SE devices

This page describes how to enable support for WiFi devices based on Realtek 802.11a/bg chipsets on Debian systems.

Drivers

rtl8180, rtl8187, rtl8187se are drivers for Realtek 802.11b and 802.11a/bg wireless LAN chipsets, included in the mainline Linux kernel.

The produced kernel modules are:

  • rtl8180 (supported devices)

    • Supports PCI devices based on the RTL8180L and RTL8185L chipsets.
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.25,1 enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.25-1.

  • rtl8187 (supported devices)

    • Supports USB devices based on the RTL8187L and RTL8187B chipsets.
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.23,2 enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.23-1.

    • RTL8187B-based devices are supported since Linux 2.6.27.
  • r8187se (supported devices)

    • Supports PCIe devices based on the RTL8187SE chipset.
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.29,3 enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.29-1.

    • Module renamed to r8187se at Linux 2.6.33.4

For all drivers, no firmware from userspace is required for device operation.

<!> rtl8187se is a staging driver and only available for the x86 and x86-64 architectures (Debian i386 and AMD64 ports respectively) at this time.

{i} Realtek 802.11n devices are supported by different drivers.

Installation

  1. Connect the device to your system. The necessary kernel module is automatically loaded for supported devices.

  2. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.
