{{Note|The kernel has rtl8187 and staging/r8187se now. The binary driver this page discusses is from circa 2005 and the content is from 2006. If there is someone still needing to use it, please remove the [[Template:Deletion]] tag. The binary driver can be found at the linked page by looking for a link similar to ftp://WebUser:nQJ4P7b@ .}}
== Instalation ==
* Download linux26x-8187(110).zip from http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=1&PFid=1&Level=6&Conn=5&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#RTL8187L
* Unpack it to folder rtl8187_linuxdrv_V1.1 (Keep the source file around; when you update kernels you may have to rebuild the file set)
* Unpack the source code:
$ tar -zxvf stack.tar.gz
$ tar -zxvf drv.tar.gz
* Build and insert modules:
$ cd ieee80211/
# make clean;make
$ cd ..
$ cd beta-8187/
# make clean;make (still in root console)
# insmod r8187.ko
lsmod shows that all of these modules have been installed, and the adapter is functional (but LED is not).
* Write a script "load":
insmod ieee80211_crypt-rtl.ko
insmod ieee80211_crypt_wep-rtl.ko
insmod ieee80211_crypt_tkip-rtl.ko
insmod ieee80211_crypt_ccmp-rtl.ko
insmod ieee80211-rtl.ko
insmod r8187.ko
* Write a script "unload":
rmmod r8187.ko
rmmod ieee80211-rtl.ko
rmmod ieee80211_crypt_ccmp-rtl.ko
rmmod ieee80211_crypt_tkip-rtl.ko
rmmod ieee80211_crypt_wep-rtl.ko
rmmod ieee80211_crypt-rtl.ko
* Put the ieeexxxxxxx.ko modules, the r8187.ko module and the scripts "load" and "unload" in a folder RTLmodules. To bring up the wireless interface wlan0, run the script "load", to bring it down, run "unload".
