Recompile kernel for Aria G25 to have the DLINK WIFI USB dongle working

Update with kernel 3.16.1

On my laptop :

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- acme-aria_defconfig

make ARCH=arm menuconfig

make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- acme-aria.dtb
make -j8 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi- uImage
make modules -j8 ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabi-
make modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=./modules ARCH=arm

scp arch/arm/boot/dts/acme-aria.dtb root@

scp arch/arm/boot/uImage root@

I had to install rsync on the aria g25 board (apt-get install rsync
rsync -avc modules/lib/ root@

Then reboot the acme card

once rebooted, do

depmod -a

apt-get install firmware-realtek
echo 2001 330d > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rtl8192cu/new_id

I see with dmesg :

apt-get install wireless-tools

and process as below to set the /etc/network/interfaces


/etc/init.d/networking restart

To have this ok at boot, add the 2 lines below in /etc/rc.local

echo 2001 330d > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rtl8192cu/new_id

/etc/init.d/networking restart


Following instructions from :

Add a USB connector to the board :

Recompile the kernel 2.6.39 (

In linux-2.6.39/drivers/net/wireless/rtlwifi/rtl8192cu/sw.c, you have to add a line for your dongle :

/****** 8192CU ********/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x0586, 0x341f, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*Zyxel -Abocom*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x07aa, 0x0056, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*ATKK-Gemtek*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x07b8, 0x8178, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*Funai -Abocom*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x07b8, 0x8178, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*Abocom -Abocom*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x2001, 0x3307, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*D-Link-Cameo*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x2001, 0x3309, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*D-Link-Alpha*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x2001, 0x330a, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*D-Link-Alpha*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x2001, 0x330d, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*D-Link-Alpha*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x2019, 0xab2b, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*Planex -Abocom*/
{RTL_USB_DEVICE(0x7392, 0x7822, rtl92cu_hal_cfg)}, /*Edimax -Edimax*/

You need rtl8192cufw.bin  in  /lib/firmware/rtlwifi/ (it is not installed when you install the package firmware-realtek)

In /etc/network/interfaces (WEP key) :

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid Freebox-XXXX
wireless-key XXXXXX

The Wifi USB dongle must not be too far from the access point.

You got :
