D-Link DSL-2750U

Down here in India, there appears to be a new revision of the D-Link DSL-2750U in the wild, viz., rev. U1.

The last revision of this model was C1, and had a Broadcom SoC. This one, however, appears to be powered by a Realtek SoC.

The firmware revision on my unit is IN_1.08; D-Link has both country-specific and revision-specific firmware for this model.

Some images of the unit:

Here's some more info on the router:
   The power adapter is an F12W-120100SPAV L.P.S. by Shenzen Frecom Electronics Co. Ltd. Output current is rated at 1A, output voltage at 12V. Connector is a standard barrel connector found on most router power adpaters.
   The MAC address, as listed on the box has a OUI of C0:A0:BB.
   The default SSID is "D-Link".
   The default IP address is
   The default login user is "admin"; the default password is "admin".
   Like I mentioned earlier, there is a revision of the router, rev. C1, which is also on the market. Externally one is indistinguishable from the other. However, the C1 has a Broadcom SoC in it.

Panasonic DY-WL10

I went to the wikidevi page below to install the driver for Windows 7 for the (edit: for the Panasonic DY-WL10)

It started the update driver process and seemed like it was going to install the driver!
Then I got a message that "a hash could not be found" and that the file was either corrupted or had been tampered with"
Can someone help? Thanks.....
The .inf file should be the only modified part of the driver - everything else was identical to the vendor's driver set
You may want to try the older one, otherwise I'll look into it when able

New Question

Are driver for this device also for Windows 8 avaliable?

there may be one available - take a look at the TL-WN822N v2's driver sets
--M86 (talk) 04:37, 3 December 2013 (EST)

Asus N-66

Trying to coerce it now. Tried with bundled drivers from Asus, the driver loads, the card works somehow, but doesn't see anything. There's newer driver at, but still doesn't work.

The driver from 3.12.1 kernel works ok.

indeed, it would probably be best to stick with rt2800usb now that support is there (unless there is a compelling reason to use Ralink's driver)
--M86 (talk) 04:39, 3 December 2013 (EST)


Drivers on the site for SMCWUSB-N2 are not recognized by Windows 7. Any alternatives?

You will need to modify the inf file to include the USB ID for this dongle - it is not in there now.
Open the Win7 inf file you need (x indicates a 64-bit target), and add it in (should look similar / identical to the below line)
%ATHR.DeviceDesc.9170% = ATHR_DEV_9170.ndi, USB\VID_0CF3&PID_1002
Failing that, just use the vendor's driver.

TP-Link WDR4300 v1.6

Version number of this unit is at 1.6 (PCB ver. 1.3). It has green LEDs now (early units had searchlight-like blue ones) Some parts have changed (Atheros chips are the same, not counting subversions and manufacturing countries), RAM module changed. Power supply also changed. Should you be interested adding it to the site, I can provide all necessary data.

Hmm.. well, I suppose knowing the text found on this board revision would be handy. If there are any additional notable component differences (either in part or revision) or notable board layout changes, that may also be useful to add..

Winstars WS-WN688N5

I bought a Tecknet adapter from amazon de: This one looks like 2 drops of water to the mentioned WS-WN688N5 adapter (it does not have the uspeed label on the front). It even has the type indiction:WS-WN688N5 REV.D on the back. It does not use the realtek driver mentioned. In fact it is a RAlink RT5572 (from lsusb:148f:5572 Ralink Technology, Corp.). It works with the following driver:

Is this a new version/revision (so soon) or is it a mistake?

It is probably a new one. Whomever is manufacturing these things will likely switch things around whenever it is convenient to do so.
I'll toss a new entry up for this particular one. Thx, btw.

The driver listed does not work well with AWUS036NHA. The best driver I found to work with it is the one from ALFA's website. The TP-Link driver pulls very few connects and just drops them after connecting. The ALFA driver has been the most reliable despite being an older base driver.

I believe the original driver CD is also mirrored here - it's linked to on the page (but not the infobox). .. it's not extremely surprising that the TP-LINK driver does not work well with the thing..

Edimax EW-7822UAC ac adapter provide Linux driver

I found a link in edmax

It seems that they provide Linux driver for this USB 3.0 802.11 ac adapter. I ordered one online. I will let you know if it works. This is the only AC adapter for Linux that I can find so far.

2013-07-26 Update I can confirm that edimax EW-7822UAC provide Linux driver. I successfully compiled its driver and connected it in Fedora 19. The download speed can reach average 15MB/s and peak 20MB/s by using perf.

Noted. I also just tested the driver with my Belkin F9L1109 (w/ Edimax BR-6478AC AP) and it works quite snappily (~25.7MBps peak and ~16.5MBps average [w/ iperf]). .. I would have tested it earlier... but, to say the least, I am not feeling well atm{
I'll add the driver so it will show up automatically in the infobox shortly.. Thanks for letting me (and everyone else) know!

AP mode

Could you please check if it does work in AccessPoint (AP) infrastructure (master) mode under GNU/Linux with hostapd?

--Thump (talk) 08:06, 1 February 2014 (EST)
From my limited testing, no - the 8812au driver does not currently work w/ hostapd (nl80211) or an older Realtek modified hostapd. A newer Realtek hostapd build may get it to work, however. The one I used was targeted for use with 81xxCU devices (and may have been outdated even for those..).

This page[1] said to let you know when a linux driver was available for this chipset? Well, there seems to be one floating about.

Thanks for the awesome info on this wiki.

It is indeed useful. I found the same source also at without the full kernel tree included (not that it really matters). I'll toss it into the driver template in a sec so it will show up for all rtl8188eu(s) devices...

Linksys AE1200 Windows driver

At least for me (using Ubuntu 12.04).

I've tried lots of things but it only seems to work for WEP and open networks.
I don't know whether it's driver's fault
-- 00:30, 29 March 2013 (EDT)
the driver probably won't work properly with ndiswrapper (from my testing w/ x64 systems, it crashed instantly anyway) - it doesn't even work properly in Windows (at least in XP). a native driver (or maybe vista/7 driver support in ndiswrapper) will likely be required for proper functioning

Hi, Thanks for you windows driver.It works fine on Win 7 but i can't install it on XP. Thanks

indeed, it doesn't seem to be working correctly with bcm4323 devices. you may have better luck with the driver for the wnda3100v2.
--M86 (talk) 02:53, 21 February 2013 (EST)

Hi, thanks for the link, i tried this driver but it doesn't work better :(

yeah, I misread what you typed earlier - that driver would never work. anyway, I don't currently have a non-AE2500 BCM43236 dongle to test. you may want to try the NetComm NP920 XP driver ( [appears to be the same version as the one included with the AE2500], includes the default BCM43236 USB ID) or the AirTies Air 2410 driver (version, also includes the default BCM43236 USB ID).. and do let me know if any of those work..
--M86 (talk) 01:07, 3 March 2013 (EST)

Hi, i tried both these two drivers but it doesn't work :( .Xp tell me it doesn't find any driver for this device at this location when i specify manually the folder where i extracted driver files. Thanks

hmm? the standard bcm4323 / bcm43236 USB IDs should be in there. what is the USB ID for your device? see here if you don't know how to find it in the device manager...
you may also want to try disabling the 5GHz band in the device properties (if you do not require it, of course). that seemed to help during my limited testing of a few devices.

Hey, do you know any working alternative for this Stick? The TP-LINK TL-WN821N uses similar Chips, but you mentioned something about "Sony locked their devices to the 0411:017f USB ID". If there is no alternative, how can I modify the TP-LINK Stick to also use the 0411:017f USB ID? (If this is even possible?) Thanks in advance and also thanks for the information already given by you.

There is no known alternative adapter for the device. There is no known way to modify the EEPROM of AR7010 devices to change the USB ID.
If there was a known way to get third-party dongles working on the device it probably would have been added to the UWA-BR100 page.

Help on identifying DWA-160 Rev B2 chipset

I have a D-Link DWA-160 rev B2. I confirmed pid and vid. I can't tell what chipset it is though. lsusb -v doesn't say. When I opened the device up there's no identifying chipset information. I might need a magnifying glass. On Windows the Ralink "USB(RT2870/RT2770/RT307X/RT2070/RT357X/RT3370/RT8070/RT537X)" driver works. On Linux the RT5572 USB driver works. Any ideas on how I can confirm the actual chipset?

-- 01:00, 12 April 2012 (EDT)
DWA-160 rev B2 chip image from the FCC
You can check out the internal images at the FCC site by plugging the FCC ID (KA2WA160B2) in into the FCC website ( ). It is clearly identifiable as a RT5572 through there. If you don't feel like doing that, take a look at the image to the right.
In Linux, you can confirm the chipset by enabling CONFIG_RT2X00_DEBUG and recompiling rt2800usb (best to use compat-wireless). Then when the device is plugged in and recognized by rt2800usb, a line ('Chipset detected - rt: xxxx, rf: yyyy, rev: zzzz.') will be output by the module and logged into dmesg. I modified the line into a printk so it would output all time without debug set.
--M86 01:16, 12 April 2012 (EDT)
Thanks for the info. I didn't take the metal part off that was covering the actual chip when I took it apart. Weird that that RT3572 driver works for it on Windows but it must be similar enough. The Ralink RT5572 driver works fine on Linux as long as you change it to be GPL. Otherwise it won't get loaded.
