wifi direct Orange pi plus Linux 4.9

Recommended Posts

hi,

 

I made a program on Orange pi minus (kernel 3.X)using wpa_supplicant for wifi direct. That worked fine (basically).

 

 

But i have been  asked to do it on Orange pi plus with Kernel 4.9. The wifi works when i using nmtui, but when i made a iw list i couldn't find my material and i am not able to configure P2P.

 

 

I think the problem is the kernel version and not the Hardware because my card with kernel 3.X works on orange pi pc plus.

So i am a bit lost, what can i do ? My guest is to modify the realtek module ? I am not sure if i am on the right direction...

 

Thanks,

 

Ps: Sorry for my english.

8189ES isn't not the same as 8189FS.

But, anyway, the 8189fs is already part of Armbian build for some boards such OPiPC+.

Which board do you have ?

And why do you need it under 4.9 ? Armbian is on 4.10 since months ...

If i remember correctly the git compile 8189fs and 8189es, so yes you can. after that i just removed the 8189fs.ko and paste the new one. But for wifi direct that just seems to work in CLIENT not in GO.

Edit :

If you manage to succeed direct wifi With a go negotation at most than 7 and you become a GO at the end, please let me Know .

Hi Aodren,

Could you please guide me to build a demonstration of file transfer via wifi direct? I need transfer a large file in a short time via wifi. I'm using board Orange Pi Plus 2 with Armbian 5.30 Xenial Desktop. Thank you in advance.
