TP-LINK TL-WN727N v3.2 on Samsung UE40EH5450WXXH

Post by triceraptor »

It gives the problem:TV "smart" Samsung UE40EH5450WXXH (which already has a cable RJ45 rear mounted router TP-LINK Wireless Gigabit Router WR1043ND) + Samsung WIS09ABGN wireless adapter.
Based on the desire to have (yet) a wireless adapter that does not give between 200 and 250 RON, I started to read diligently (first link being the best to learn about how they would do).
http://wiki.samygo.tv/index.php5/Using_ ... es_with_TV

Closest my desire was: http://akehayc.yvision.kz/post/312922
Keep in mind that the TP-LINK TL-WN727N v3.2 Ralink RT5370 chipset has a rather RT5572 (the linux driver being different and being different "CentOS 6.3 x32"), so I used this thread only for guidance that I do.
I guess he talking about D-Link DWA-125 Ver B1.

Software needed:
1.Driver use (Linux download section) = "RT8070 / RT3070 / RT3370 / RT5370 / RT5372 USB" (2.5.0.3 of 03/28/2012):
http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_download ... php?sn=501
Enter an email address (any - ... @ yahoo.com, and user) and download the driver.
2.Download (for Windows) "UNetbootin-windows-583":
http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
3.Download "Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (Lucid Lynx)" to "PC (Intel x86) desktop CD" (694.5 MB)
http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ 10.04.4
I chose that version because I found information that the last version 12 ... was not working.

Necessary hardware.
1.Stick USB 2GB or more.
2.TP-LINK TL-WN727N v3.2
Identification wireless adapter:
http://wikidevi.com/wiki/TP-LINK_TL-WN727N_v33.
3.Calculator a free partition.

I can not begin before i will say for me- Linux was just a logo with an penguin or a red hat .
What to do:
Install on a USB stick 2GB or more, Ubuntu.
Open UNetbootin
- Top left choose Ubuntu
- Top right choose 10.04 Live
- Bottom left chose the image wich is already downloaded on HDD (ubuntu-10.04.4-desktop-i386)
- Check if the USB stick corresponds to the letter displayed and if so, press Next.
-We will wait (the green bar is filled)
-Choose Finish not Reboot.
-Restart the computer and choose to boot after USB stick
-We see many variants including Live and HDD installation
-Personally, I did not go anything until I installed it directly on HDD (trying to "Live" could not do update later).
Installing the HDD choose the type of partition ext2.
Provide the required data and here we have an Ubuntu Linux computer (carefully during installation will require a password keep it mind or write it).
I used colors to easily follow what we do.

First we must update Ubuntu:
Open Terminal (Applications-> Accesories-> Terminal) and enter the following commands:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
Enter
...........
sudo apt-get upgrade
Enter
...........
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$ (uname-r) fakeroot dpkg-dev
Enter
I unzipped 2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO.bz2 (on the desktop)
I unzipped 2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO.tar (on the desktop)
I get 2011_0719_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO folder (on the desktop)
I renamed what I got after unpacking in RT5370 (on the desktop)

I entered in the RT5370 folder in os in linux and then I modified config.mk as following:

Code: Select all

Support ATE function  
HAS_ATE = y (before it was n)  

Support wpa_supplicant 
HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT = y (before it was n)  

Native Support for Network Maganger wpasupplicant    
HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT = y (before it was n)
I saved.

Also in RT5370 folder in os in linux in usb_main_dev.c, and then I changed only two signs (*) the other was already written:

Code: Select all

MODULE_AUTHOR (" Paul Lin <paul_lin@ralinktech.com> ");  
MODULE_DESCRIPTION ("RT2870 Wireless Lan Linux Driver");  
MODULE_LICENSE ("GPL"); 
# ifdef CONFIG_STA_SUPPORT  
# ifdef MODULE_VERSION  MODULE_VERSION (STA_DRIVER_VERSION); 
# endif  # endif / / CONFIG_STA_SUPPORT / / (before was # endif / * CONFIG_STA_SUPPORT * /)
I saved.
Compile the driver:
In Ubuntu-> Applications-> Accesories-> TerminalI open terminal:
I gave the command "cd" and then I pulled (drag and drop) RT5370 foder over terminal

Code: Select all

sebi @ sebi-desktop: ~ $ cd '/ home/sebi/Desktop/RT5370'
Enter
The result was: 
sebi @ sebi-desktop: ~ / Desktop/RT5370 $) 
Then I entered the command "make"
sebi @ sebi-desktop: ~ / Desktop/RT5370 $ make
Enter

I did the network card 2 days ago

This method will work only on ubuntu 10.04, i did tried on 12.04 but I got no results, well it did compile well the drivers, but I was not able to use the iwpriv command, nothing was showing up

Also this part "sebi@sebi-desktop:~$ sudo rmmod rt5572sta" does not apply to everyone, I did not had this issue, and I suspect that this was the module of the network card that he was using at that moment, therefore if you don`t see it, don`t be scared.

What issues i had when i first plugged in the adapter
- i connected the adapter to the wifi router, when i went to samsung apps i got the "error model bind", anyway after while (1 hour) finally the apps started to work
-i still have an issue with the apps, they are constantly requesting to update even if i give the command to update
- i can only stream HD Blu Ray only when i am using the network card from the TV as AP, otherwise i get a constant from 10 to 15 seconds a buffer freeze screen which is very annoying
