Instalation

  • 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":
#!/bin/sh
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
#ifconfig wlan0 up
  • Write a script "unload":
#!/bin/sh
ifconfig wlan0 down
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".
