Hello,

I've recently bought an Alfa Network AWUS036ACH usb adapter and I'm not able to install it.

I've read https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/AC1200_Wireless_Adapters and followed its script. At least lsmod shows the 8812au module listed. My router isn't able to offer ac but n. It uses WPA2 (TKIP/AES) on encryption.

Here some files:

iwconfig

It seems there is some mess with wpa_supplicant script somewhere whos using nl80211 driver but I dont know where it can be. I was trying to configure another different usb wifi adapter in the past but I really didn't know which scripts I activate.

Thank you.

Loriot ...

There is your problem:

So, it's either attempting to load an incorrect firmware, or some part of the firmware is missing. You should probably 'emerge linux-firmware', or check the kernel documentation.

Thank you, khayyam

After an upgrade which has included linux-firmware package, here I post new dmesg:

dmesg
http://pastebin.com/Ek1Nf3cM

This time iwconfig dont even show anything up. I've tried an
Code:
ifconfig enp0s20u9 up
without results.

Edit: BTW enp3s0 is not supposed to be a link to wired connection?

rtl8812au chipset in dmesg:
Code:
dmesg | grep rtl8812au

dont show anything wrong

Cheers

Loriot,

Its still not found the firmware.
Code:
[   14.017710] r8169 0000:03:00.0: Direct firmware load for rtl_nic/rtl8168g-2.fw failed with error -2
[   14.017711] r8169 0000:03:00.0 enp3s0: unable to load firmware patch rtl_nic/rtl8168g-2.fw (-2)


Do you have the file /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168g-2.fw ?
If not try a testing version of linux-firmware.

Hi NeddySeagoon, my fault.
As I said before, I did a fully upgrade (I think you gentoo geeks call it @world upgrade) and after 4hours waiting I did a mistake, so led by a hurry I didn't reboot afterwards and I paste a dmesg before reboot (proof of that is that I'm using 4.9 kernel now)

Here's the current dmesg.
http://pastebin.com/ZS7FERTn

BTW I have firmwares installed:
ls /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/
Code:
rtl8105e-1.fw
rtl8106e-1.fw
rtl8106e-2.fw
rtl8107e-1.fw
rtl8107e-2.fw

Loriot,

That worked
dmesg:
[    5.803955] rtl8812au 3-9:1.0 enp0s20u9: renamed from wlan0

Your wifi interface is called enp0s20u9. It will appear in
Code:
ifconfig -a


There are no indications in dmesg that enp0s20u9 was ever started, nor that it failed to start.

Your next step is to attempt to configure enp0s20u9
The hard bit is done.

Nope, it seems for me this is the hard part.

Okay, I've done every step in Wireless wiki but no results at all. Stuck on there. I've even followed https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Networking.

I don't know what to post.

Inside this wiki thread https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Wifi its written to do some testing: ifconfig -v enp0s20u9 up has no achievement. After that, iwconfig only show "no wireless extensions" sentence.

From now on it seems no hardware problem, but software. It should be easy, as NeddySeagoon said...maybe configurations issue? I've followed too many wikis, maybe I've configuration scripts overiding each other?

Shed a little light, please.

Cheers

Loriot ... all of the 'ioctal' errors are due to using -Dwext' rather than '-Dnl80211'. I expect your driver is using the later, and you should adjust your configuration to reflect this fact, eg:

/etc/conf.d/net:
wpa_supplicant_enp0s20u9="-Dnl80211 -qq"

You may have another wpa_supplicant process already running or the file was
left by an unclean termination of wpa_supplicant in which case you will need
to manually remove this file before starting wpa_supplicant again.

This shows that you have another instance of wpa_supplicant started, or that was killed, and so the /var/run/wpa_supplicant still exists, or wasn't removed.

Hello khayyam,

Thanks for your answer. It's written in https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/AC1200_Wireless_Adapters (in Notes section) the following:
Quote:
The RTL8812AU driver requires the Linux wireless extensions (wext) driver.
and I'm afraid neither wext or nl80211 works.

wpa_supplicant -ienp0s20u9 -Dnl80211 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -d

wpa_supplicant_enp0s20u9="-Dnl80211 -qq"


module is loaded, kernel is like said in AC1200 drivers wiki. The only "remarkable" error was when I was executing the script left on that wiki, it tried to make a directory into /lib64/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8812au but no rtlwifi directory was between, so I made up myself and put the 8812au.ko in rtlwifi/rtl8812au.

Loriot ... ok, in which case I don't see why you would get the above ioctl errors, what do you have enabled in the kernel?

Loriot ... that looks ok. I'm not entirely sure what's going on here, I think you've messed up the driver install. I checked the above wiki page and it states:

Quote:
The Realtek 8812au USB driver (kernel 3.10) is available from https://github.com/gnab/rtl8812au.

... so, I would assume you're using the latter, "rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux", and not the former (given the kernel version). However, you say you "execut[ed] the script", but that script doesn't point to that URI. I would start over, this time following the manual method, and using the above linked 4.3.x sources.

I really don't know which driver I was using before, but I downloaded both and gnab's version compile right and rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux's not, so I assume I was with gnab's (which didn't give me any compiling problems from the very beginning). So, if we discard gnab's it only left csssurf's. I'm gonna try it now and I'll report back.

BTW, I'm little dizzy right now concerning which program I've to use to test my wireless connection. So we have dhcpcd (which can handle wpa_supplicant throughout a hook, I am wrong?), wpa_supplicant itself and, maybe ifconfig/iwconfig to see if the interface is up? If not, which will do you use?

Thank you all

: ccssuf's didn't compile at all either

Loriot ... I don't use the dhcpcd hook, I use netifrc/openrc. I don't see the advantage of doing it otherwise (if anything it just introduces confusion, as you attest).

/etc/conf.d/net:
modules_enp0s20u9="!plug wpa_supplicant dhcpcd"
wpa_supplicant_enp0s20u9="-Dnl80211 -qq"
config_enp0s20u9="dhcp"

Code:
# ln -s /etc/init.d/net.lo /etc/init.d/net.enp0s20u9
# /etc/init.d/net.enp0s20u9 start

The above '4.3.x' link has the github account name "abperiasamy".

Yeah, excuse me. I should had tried to be more intelligible. Some briefing:

gnab --> compile OK
abperiasamy --> doesn't compile (errors) *
csssuf --> doesn't compile (errors) **

* should I post the compile errors?
** this resource appears on AC1200 Adapters wiki

So apparently we are like in the beggining. Drivers prob? When I come home later I'll post some errors /etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant gives with some specific wpa_supplicant args. Maybe it'll help.

I'm not at home right now, I'll try your test advice later. Thanks for sharing, I really appreciate your help.

Cheers
