Ok, this time I'm 100% I'm not the problem  Grin A friend of mine has an Olibook m1020, with a Realtek 8187SE. I know it works on Pardus since 2008.2 version, but it's not my case. Actually, I was never able to use wireless on that netbook, not even with ubuntu or fedora. Is there any way to use wireless with that hardware?
Thanks for your help Wink

AFAIK no support for this chip in the kernel 6.2.37 (the kernel is in pardus 2011.2).

But his support is a kernel 3.0.x. But still not complete and no stability.

in any case you will need to compile your kernel yourself

and are unlikely possible to find manual the kernel compilation under Pardus

Thanks for your reply Wink
http://www.pardus.org.tr/eng/release_notes/pardus_2008_2_canis_aureus/
So this driver was in kernel 2.6.25.20 and then it was removed and it's not in 2.6.37.6? Is that right?

O_O where it came from the driver at the time did not exist even in the individual archives. Although an experimental options may be.

In any case, you need to know which module to use your card. Try running the Ubuntu Live. and

wait hmm

install package module-compat-wireless

I thought it worked in 2008.2 because in the link I gave you there's "Support for RTL8187SE based wireless devices" Wink I'll try with ubuntu and I'll let you know man Wink

Maybe not, the module in the package only supports

$ modinfo /lib/modules/2.6.37.6/updates/drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187/rtl8187.ko
filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.37.6/updates/drivers/net/wireless/rtl818x/rtl8187/rtl8187.ko

Pardus 2008  can support your wireless hardware.
But not now. These are the kind we have Pardus maintainers.

Write to http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/ about this bug.

Tell him "i need to have in the system kernel module rtl8187se.ko"

That's what I can't get: why is the wireless working with some rtl8187se (like atolboo) and not with other rtl8187se like the one I have? The driver is the same, isn't it?

Is the wireless device not disabled Huh?
I can toggle it with the key combination Fn+F11 on my MSI Wind U90X-037EU or FN+F2 on the Asus Eee 1001PXD.
And what is the output of
Code:
iwconfig
and
Code:
lspci | grep RTL8187SE

Wireless device works, there's a light on the netbook that shows it.
Code:
iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

wlan0     802.11b/g  Mode:Managed  Frequency=2.422 GHz 
          Access Point: Not-Associated   Bit Rate:11 Mb/s   
          Retry:on   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=0/100  Signal level=0 dBm  Noise level=0 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

eth0      no wireless extensions.

Code:
lspci | grep RTL8187SE
02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8187SE Wireless LAN Controller (rev 22)

Seems ok, doesn't it?

Yes, especially the next result:
Code:
wlan0     802.11b/g  Mode:Managed  Frequency=2.422 GHz 
          Access Point: Not-Associated   Bit Rate:11 Mb/s   
          Retry:on   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=0/100  Signal level=0 dBm  Noise level=0 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
This means that the driver is working and should be able to scan the signal it receives.
Which version of Pardus is currently installed Huh?
