I tried to install in many ways, nothing works

My PC is a HP240(G5)

Works perfect in Windows(10)

Led's off in Ubuntu (like if it was disconnected) and it warms up slowly

TPLINK WN8200ND usb wifi not working

Install other OS (Debian)

https://ubuntuperonista.blogspot.com.ar/2016/05/realtek-wifi-chipsets-ubuntu-instalar-driver-compilar-controlador.html (Ndiswrapper didn't work 'cause driver is only available at .exe, can't find .inf, TRIED TO EXTRACT FROM EXE ((V2)))

Official driver at Tplink page http://www.tp-link.com/au/download/TL-WN8200ND.html#Driver

Many things I remember confusingly, it's all

Edit2

I tried installing https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver , didn't work, tried blacklisting RTL8192CU, didn't work, tried unninstalling rtl8192cu driver(dkms), didn't work, still without name at lsusb (unrecognizable)

  • Use the edit link to remove the drama. Instead, tell us about 'everything' you tried. A quick Search for "Ubuntu RTL8192EU" shows that your choice of adapter was perhaps unwise, but can work quite well with Ubuntu without great trauma. – user535733 Feb 5 '18 at 1:50
  • Please see askubuntu.com/a/425205/300665 and copy the contents of the wireless-info.txt file and paste at paste.ubuntu.com and post the URL. Please edit the question to include results from terminal for dkms status; ls ~/ I have made some changes to rtl8192eu source code but I need to check some things out first. The TP-Link Windows driver shows the 2357:0126 device as rtl8192eu – Jeremy31 Feb 5 '18 at 22:25

I actually have success installing TP-Link TL-WN8200ND(UN) V2 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Desktop (64-bit).

I modified the driver from https://github.com/Mange/rtl8192eu-linux-driver to add support for TL-WN8200ND V2 (By only adding 1 line precisely). I have forked the driver and you can install it by following this step in the terminal:

cd ~
sudo apt-get install git linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
git clone https://github.com/agtbaskara/rtl8192eu-linux-driver.git
cd rtl8192eu-linux-driver
sudo dkms add .
sudo dkms install rtl8192eu/1.0
cd /usr/src/rtl8192eu-1.0/
sudo make clean
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe -a 8192eu

And the reboot your PC, for my case it should be working.

EDIT 1 : USE THIS https://github.com/luckynzm/tlwn8200nddriver

My modified driver actually very buggy, and disconnected the wifi after several minutes

EDIT 2 : There is another problem for me, after about an hour the device kick to a "Power Save" state randomly, I have solve it by changing these line:

CONFIG_POWER_SAVING = y

to

CONFIG_POWER_SAVING = n

in the Makefiles before installing the driver

  • Hey dude! nice to see that someone cared about this device, i'll try this! i'd just login to thank you! – Andres Zelada Mar 8 at 19:58

cd ~
sudo apt-get install git linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
git clone https://github.com/luckynzm/tlwn8200nddriver
cd rtl8192eu-linux-driver
sudo dkms add .
sudo dkms install rtl8192eu/1.0
cd /usr/src/rtl8192eu-1.0/
sudo make clean
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe -a 8192eu

worked for me after disabling secure boot don't know how to properly sine the module if sum one can modify the solution to remove old rtl8192eu/1.0 installations and properly sine the module for secure boot these thread will b perfect i guess

removing old rtl8192eu/1.0 installations

sudo dkms status

will show the installed modules

sudo dkms remove -n rtl8192eu -v 1.0 --all

will remove old rtl8192eu/1.0 module from previous attempts
