WLAN with D-Link DWA-131
June 14, 2014 06:46PM

Today I've setup PiratBox on my Raspberry Pi. I have a D-Link DWA-131 and it was not working initially.

The following did the trick:
1) I changed the driver in /opt/piratebox/conf/hostapd to "rtl871xdrv"
2) Then I replaced the hostapd:
Language: PHP
wget http://www.adafruit.com/downloads/adafruit_hostapd.zip unzip adafruit_hostapd.zip sudo mv /usr/sbin/hostapd /usr/sbin/hostapd.ORIG sudo mv hostapd /usr/sbin sudo chmod 755 /usr/sbin/hostapd

Thank you for posting this.
I added this thread to our hardware list for the RPi.

I have an Edimax 2.4 GHz USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter (EW-7811UN) and I used the above to enable my Wifi. All is now working as expected.

Thanks for the post!

Hello. I am using a Belkin N300 Wireless USB Adapter Model: F9L1002v1 From my research it looks like this uses the Realtek RTL8192SU chipset just like the DLink DWA-131.

However following this thread I am unable to get it working. I am using the ARCH image linked to on this guide www.piratebox.cc (the bittorrent link).
Using it on my Raspberry Pi B+

I tried enabling device probe, upping the probe_time to 20, I switched the driver to rtl871xdrv in the conf and installed the adafruit hostapd as you show. On boot my only error is:

[ 19.234788] r8712u 1-1.5:1.0 wlan0: 1 RCR=0x153f00e
[ 19.248269] r8712u 1-1.5:1.0 wlan0: 2 RCR=0x553f00e
[ 19.384894] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

Hey, My old Belkin adapter started acting up and fail to connect and also I've been having an issue with my wifi USB dongle (Belkin router). So I try this https://www.routertechnicalsupportnumbers.com/belkin-router-support/ to get more information about a router modification. And It will useful to me after a long time I saw authentic service provider.
