Just bought a netbook – Axioo Pico DJV 712 – and installed Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala on it. Everything went fine until I tried to connect it to my wireless hotspot – no wireless connection! – my Axioo Pico DJV 712 wireless onboard card didn’t even detected by Ubuntu 9.10.

This is what I found later when I run lspci -knn

Axioo Pico DJV 712 use Realtek 8172 wireless card and ubuntu 9.10 didn’t load a driver for it, google found this for me rtl8172 wireless driver.

This is how I made those driver worked on my Ubuntu 9.10

1. Updated my Ubuntu 9.10 so I can compile the rtl8172 driver

sudo apt-get install build-essential

2. Downloaded the rtl8172 wireless driver

3. Extract it :

tar zxvf rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0010.1012.2009.tar.gz

4. Change directory : 

cd rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0010.1012.2009

5. Compile and Install

make

sudo make install

6. Reboot

Now I have an Axioo Pico DJV 712 with a working wireless onboard card.

Note : for those who need the 64 bit driver here’s the link : rtl8172 64bit driver

      You can change to the directory of the drivers by typing :

      cd [space] rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0010.1012.2009

      If this wasn’t your problem my guess is you can’t find the file that you’ve downloaded and can not extract them, if you are using firefox by default the file will go to Downloads folder/directory, you can find your file there, just “cd Downloads” from your home directory.
