Realtek RTL8188CE, RTL8188CUS, RTL8188DE, RTL8188SU, RTL8191SE, RTL8191SU, RTL8192CE, RTL8192CU, RTL8192DE, RTL8192E, RTL8192SE, RTL8192SU, RTL8192U devices

This page describes how to enable support for WiFi devices based on Realtek 802.11n chips on Debian systems.

Drivers

r8712u, rtl8192ce, rtl8192cu, rtl8192de, rtl8192e, rtl8192se, rtl8192su and rtl8192u are drivers for Realtek 802.11n wireless LAN chips, included in the mainline Linux kernel.

The produced kernel modules are:

  • r8192_pci (supported devices)

    • Supports PCI-E devices based on the RTL8192E chipset (RTL8191SE/RTL8192SE not supported).
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.32,1 enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.32-5.

    • Renamed to r8192e_pci at Linux 2.6.34.2

  • r8192s_usb
    • Supports USB devices based on the RTL8188SU, RTL8191SU and RTL8192SU chips.
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.31,3 enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.32-10.

    • Superseded by r8712u and removed from mainline at Linux 2.6.37.4

  • r8192u_usb (supported devices)

    • Supports USB devices based on the RTL8192U chipset.
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.33,5 added and enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.32-16.

  • r8712u (supported devices)

    • Supports USB devices based on the RTL8188SU, RTL8191SU and RTL8192SU chips.
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.37,6 enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.37-1~experimental.1.

  • rtl8192ce (supported devices)

    • Supports PCI-E devices based on the RTL8188CE and RTL8192CE chips.
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.38,7 enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.38-2.

  • rtl8192cu (supported devices)

    • Supports USB devices based on the RTL8188CUS and RTL8192CU chips.
    • Introduced in Linux 2.6.39, enabled at linux-2.6 2.6.39~rc7-1~experimental.1.

  • rtl8192se (supported devices)

    • Supports PCI-E devices based on the RTL8191SE and RTL8192SE chips.
    • Introduced in Linux 3.0, enabled at linux-2.6 3.0.0~rc1-1~experimental.1.

  • rtl8192de (supported devices)

    • Supports PCI-E devices based on the RTL8188DE and RTL8192DE chips.
    • Introduced in Linux 3.1, enabled at linux-2.6 3.1.0~rc4-1~experimental.1.

Non-free firmware is required for all drivers, which can be provided by installing the firmware-realtek package. RTL8192U firmware is currently not packaged (588142).

<!> r8712u, rtl8192e, rtl8192su and rtl8192u are staging drivers and only available for the x86 and x86-64 architectures (Debian i386 and AMD64 ports respectively) at this time.

{i} Realtek 802.11b/g devices are supported by different drivers.

Installation

Debian 7 "Wheezy"

This release supports Realtek RTL8188CE, RTL8188CUS, RTL8188DE, RTL8188SU, RTL8191SE, RTL8191SU, RTL8192CE, RTL8192CU, RTL8192DE, RTL8192E, RTL8192SE, RTL8192SU and RTL8192U-based devices.

  1. Add a "non-free" component to /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:

    # Debian 7 "Wheezy"
    deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
  2. Update the list of available packages and install the firmware-realtek package:

    # apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-realtek

    RTL8192U-based devices only: firmware is required to be manually supplied:

    # apt-get install unzip && exit
    $ wget ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dwa130_revC/Drivers/dwa130_revC_drivers_linux_006.zip
    $ unzip dwa130_revC_drivers_linux_006.zip
    $ su
    # mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/firmware/RTL8192U
    # cp rtl8192u_linux_2.6.0006.1031.2008/firmware/RTL8192U/* /usr/local/lib/firmware/RTL8192U
  3. Connect the device to your system.
  4. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.

Debian 6.0 "Squeeze"

This release supports Realtek RTL8188SU, RTL8191SU, RTL8192E, RTL8192SU and RTL8192U-based devices only.

  1. Add a "non-free" component to /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:

    # Debian 6.0 "Squeeze"
    deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free
  2. Update the list of available packages and install the firmware-realtek package:

    # apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-realtek

    RTL8192U-based devices only: firmware is required to be manually supplied:

    # apt-get install unzip && exit
    $ wget ftp://ftp.dlink.com/Wireless/dwa130_revC/Drivers/dwa130_revC_drivers_linux_006.zip
    $ unzip dwa130_revC_drivers_linux_006.zip
