Trendnet TEW-424UB


Hi!

I've just bought this usb device. My foult - I should check before I bought is there any linux support...
But, any way.
I have it and I don't believe there is no way to run it under linux (gentoo or fedora Core 3). I've searched the web and I have no results.

Could you help me? What should I do? How can I use this nice device under linux?

Lukjel

Hello creator404,

Get a proper card. Its that simple. Its not supported and I'm not sure it ever will be. It means loading firmware and driver and they just aren't poppular enough for anyone to go about writing code to do that. Sorry mate.
Regards
Chris

Maybe there's a driver that you may use.

If that adapter use a Realtek chipset (TrenNet TEW228PI and TEW423PI use it), you can use a driver that can be downloaded from http://www.wi-foo.com in the section of defense

How does one go about installing that driver for the TEW 424ub? I'm very interesting in making the jump to linux on my laptop!

I have never figured out how to install that driver, so I just use ndiswrapper for my TEW-424UB

This is how I got it setup on ubuntu, but I can probably find out a way to set it up on just about any distro

I too bought a TrendNet TEW-424UB. I have the V3.0R model and was looking to get it working with my FC6 installation. I found working drivers on this site http://www.datanorth.net/~cuervo/rtl8187b/
I used the rtl8187b-modified-dist.tar.gz driver as my kernel is below 2.6.24 and the other drivers complained about the kernel version. Even after making the driver which was a breeze I still needed to get the correct order of commands to make a successful connection. The order that worked for me is:
./wlan0up
iwconfig wlan0 ap xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
iwconfig wlan0 rate auto
iwconfig wlan0 key xxxxxxxx [x] open
./wlan0dhcp

Replace the x's with the correct information for your network. For ap it is the MAC. For the key they are key and Key number. The last command is for getting IP via dhcp which is what I use.

I put the above commands in a script file so I did not have to type them each time I wanted to connect.

Question A belated request

Hi everyone,

Sorry if my English is a little poor, but it's not my mother tongue.
I'm quite a newbie in the Linux World.
I have recently tried to bring back to life an old ASUS EEEPC 1015 seashell series. As it was quite old, it gradually got slower and slower, to the point Windows 7 (which was natively installed on) didn't meet our expectations anymore.

My girlfriend wanted to get it to work, so I browsed the Internet and found out that Linux Lite seemed to be the answer. The problem is: the WIFI antenna (inside) died a few years ago, and it used to work quite well thanks to TRENDNET TEW-424UB wifi dongle.

I was able to install Linux Lite on the machine with the help of an Ethernet cable, but now, she can only use it when she's connected to the Internet with a cable. She'd like to get the dongle working again, but as I said earlier, I'm quite new to the Linux World, and the operations that one may do thanks to the terminal are quite impenetrable to me.

Could anyone kindly help with the operations I should go through to get this "driver" to work?
Thank you a million times!

Didier
