Re: No help? Wireless D-LINK DWA-131

Donald J. Tambeau <tambeaud@...>
 

Hello Danny,
    Thank you for your help.  Without the D-LINK-131 plugged in a USB port, I plugged in a cable to the network adapter of my Rasp Pi and connected to the internet.   I went to the D-Link website and downloaded the Linux driver for the     DWA-131 adapter.  Now I have the driver  “dwa131_linux_drivers_100.tar.gz”  in the    /home/pi/downloads   directory on my Rasp Pi.   I am not sure how to proceed with this (tar.gz) file.   I think it has to be decompressed and then install.   Can you or anybody else explain how to do this.   Also .....does it have to be in a certain directory?
Thank you
Don

Hi Don
In the setup guide it says to install the drivers before you plug in the adaptor but the included drivers are for windows or MAC you have to go to D-Link's web site to get the Linux drives. I wen't and downloaded the drivers but I think the instalation instructions assumes the user has more Linux
experence than I have. I opened wicd and it was able to see my wirless router but when I clicked connect it failed. Also when I logged into the router it sees the Raspberry an has given it an I.P address. There is a help section on the company web site that says to push the button on the end of the adaptor then push the wps button on the router but I haven't tryed that yet if that dosen't work I will contact the help center to see if they can help me get the drivers installed. If one of us gets it working we should write it up and post it to the files section.

Hello Danny
No I have not contacted D-Link support. The information that came with the adapter only had information on how to setup with Window or Apple, I figure if they had a fix for Linux, it would have been included in their literature. I also have installed wicd but do not know how to proceed. Nothing happens when I plug it into a USB port other than it flashing on and off! I know that the Pi knows it there because when I run lsusb, the system sees it. Good luck and let me know if you have any success.

Hi, I am Andy G0SFJ, have a Pi - computing isn't really my line, wasn't too impressed by the Pi really, and am now looking at using it for ham radio applications only:

* tnc / aprs
*cw keyer
*gpredict (could not load it!)
* sound card and then some modulation/demod.


I think it is underpowered and I found the Composite video unreadable on a small tv set when I was messing around with Python, so am now going to use DVI.

BTW there are free Python courses at Coursera and elsewhere.

Also I hope to use a wireless access point from D-Link.

I am afraid I get lost with Lunix-speak and I hope towards an easy step-by-step soluton to installing these applications.

I have also just bought an rs232 interface off ebay (For the tnc) and understand that the vendor is interested in a top-ten of ham radio pcb add-ons.

All in all I don't think I'll be contributing much, but reading and hopefully learning...and asking for help sometimes!

Pascal,
 
The PI GPIO pins operate at 3.3 volts, and the PI is likely to be damaged by applying 5 volts from a normal TTL port. You will need a level converter on the TNC to PI lead. I used a simple resistor divider. Most TTL inputs are happy with the lower voltage from the PI.
Normally the PI linux kernel allocates the serial port as a console. You need to disable this to use it for packet.
I've used the linux ax.25 and netrom code, and the linux node. I haven't tried jnos.

The standard rasbian distribution now includes the ax.25 and netrom modules. You no longer need a special kernel. Yesterday I created a new image from http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/images/raspbian/2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian/2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian.zip, ran apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, and the new Kernal (3.2.27) had all the packet modules.

Steve here,

Use to run an AX25 mailbox sometime ago for many years (GB7RUG), and I might bring this back to online status, access via just the internet for starters, if I could run this all on a PI? So really I am appealing to Paula PZT and John BPQ to write some stuff for the PI to support the application. I would also like the software to be user friendly, not hours of trawling through to make it all work! Yes, I am getting a bit older these days and don't think as quick as I did when we ran these FBB based systems 15 years or so ago.

Have not invested in any units yet, as I am a bit confused what main version of Linux is going to be the main supported one for Amateur Radio operation etc? I guess thought seeing that CPC/Farnell now have stock I will be buying a couple of units to play with during this Winter.

I also have interest in using the PI with WSPR and PSK31, and driving a few rigs like the FT2000 etc, so plenty for folk to go at and get it over onto the PI system.

Hi John,

I am using the Debian wheezy image and found the screen to small

http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5021

This shows settings for the configuration file
I plugged my card into windows machine and edited with programmer's file editor which recognise linux end of line unlike notepad.

Select a lower resolution for larger text and try different settings to get a full screen.

If you want more on this I'll post my file so you can see the changes I made. I assume these settings are valid for various versions of the operating system not just debian.

Hi Iam Ian M0BXR.

Have worked with windows computers for a number of years.

For modes like WSPA and QRSS which run continuously the Raspberry Pi
should be very useful. Much better too leave on all the time amd no noisy fans in the shack.

Should be an opportunity to learn more about Linux and programming and to get some interesting projects working. At the price they are they can be built into dedicated systems.

Also interested in hardware projects which interface with the pi.

database could contain information on various applications that have
successfully or unsuccessfully been ported to or installed on the
