    piCorePlayer & RTL8188eus wifi dongle

    The armv7 drivers work with a pi 2B and a 3B+ provided the internal wifi is disabled in the pcp gui.
    Ping tests and an incomplete Flac playback test do not show any obvious problems.

    However on a 4B board I can't get any driver loaded, so no wifi recognised in PCP.
    In the dmesg the usb-id is recognised oke on both the usb2.0 and usb3.0 ports.
    And I can not find any dmesg error messages, so no hints .
    I checked the kernel version:
    Code:
    ~$ uname -a
    Linux piCorePlayertest6b7armv7 4.19.80-pcpCore_v8 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Oct 26 00:52:28 EDT 2019 aarch64 GNU/Linux
    Tested with an other USB dongle separately and together , both those situations do load drivers and a working wifi connection, except for the RTL8188fu

    Your pi stockpile must be as big as mine. I never gave you drivers for the pi4. armv6 and armv7 only.

    no :-) to much fun to have them all, and know/learn the differences.

    I know, and still wanted to see what worked and what not.
    Still do not know the ins an outs of 32 and 64 bits architecture , f.i. 32 bit userspace code running in 64 bits OS.
    I had hope the drivers were compatible.

    I see no ill behaviour of the driver/nic combo, and it stayed stable ( playing at volume 0 ) for over 24 hours.

    Personal time is scares here, else I would have tested the 3B too.
    There is little chance the driver does work different to the 3B+, but we'd better test than assume.

    Iperf version differences

    I am testing performance and packet loss between a pi 3B+ with RTK8188fu and a pi 3B with UTP.
    I used iperf3 but ran into a few issues that might be caused by the older version of Iperf3 ( iperf 3.1.2 ) on my production PCP 5.0.1.
    Is there an easy way to upgrade the iperf extension on PCP 5.0.1 ?

    I got recent iperf3 on both ends by getting pcp6b7 on both ends.
    The throughput get to about 42Mbits with a few lost UDP packets using this wifi card and a non-dedicated wifi test network.
    A 10 minute TCP test shows 34 Mbits average with a peak at 39.1 Mbits
    It is not a scientific test, but I assume it is enough for some audio to pass, and close to normal values I get out of it with laptops.
    For me this is about all I can test on a saturday night, and with my experience in Iperf3

    I guess the device/driver combo is stable.
    Shall we do the pi4 test ?

    You can run pcp-update on any extension, and it will be updated.

    I don't see the need to test on a pi4.

    Paul,

    Not exactly sure wat you mean with pcp-update, but i will try and see if I can get it updated on a pi4.
    I just start a new PCP 6b7 image on a pi4, and then tinker with the GUI till the right drivers come down from the repository, so I can switch from wired to wireless.

    pcp-update is a command line utility. I believe you can update a package too in 6.0.0 from the extension page.

    more on USB-N10 Asus (8188 eu driver)

    Hello,

    I have received a USB-N10 Nano Asus wifi plug. It doesn't work on PicorePlayer 6.0 :-( I've tested several 8188 provided drivers, to no avail)

    Now, after some investigation, I've got it to work on my raspberry pi.

    What I had to do :
    - install Raspbian Buster version (downloaded yesterday)
    - compile the Asus driver (it was provided on a CDROM with the wifi plug). Compiling was fairly easy, except GCC complained about a warning which I disable by changing the Makefile : EXTRA_CFLAGS += -Wno-incompatible-pointer-types
    - install the driver (sudo make install)
    - load the driver in the kernel : sudo modprobe -v 8188eu
    - then spend an awful lot of time working out the wireless configuration with linux (hint : wicd-curses did the trick, provided you do : systemctl disable dhcpd )

    Here are some info :

    Code:
    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ lsusb | grep ASUS
    Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0b05:18f0 ASUSTek Computer, Inc.
    
    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ lsmod | grep 8188
    8188eu               1622016  0
    cfg80211              643072  1 8188eu
    If somebody wants me to test PicoPlayer ž.0 some more, I'd be happy to help !
