rtl8192
There are at least 6 different rtl8192 wifi drivers, RTL8192CU, RTL8192DU, RTL8192EU, RTL8192FM, RTL8192SU, RTL8192U.

You need to be more specific in asking where to get the driver source for your wifi by specifying the full version type your wifi adapter uses as it will only work with one of them.

Specifying just RTL8192 is no use.

I use the source from here:- https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver

I compile several different drivers for use with Raspbian, including the 8192eu driver, and they can be downloaded from my web site http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/

I also have a script that you can use to download and install the drivers I compile. You can download and install the script using commands

Code: Select all

sudo wget http://downloads.fars-robotics.net/wifi-drivers/install-wifi -O /usr/bin/install-wifi
sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/install-wifi
The command

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi -h
will give details on how the script can be used. To download and install the driver for your current version of Raspbian with the wifi module connected to the Pi use command

Code: Select all

sudo install-wifi
The script will check the wifi module you have connected to your Pi and then select the driver it uses and then check the Raspbian kernel version and download and install the driver version for your kernel version.
