Recently I built new PC with Ubuntu OS 14.04 (64bit). I noticed the D-Link Wireless N Nano USB Adapter doesn't get detected and installed automatically.

Here's exactly what and where you have to edit:

  • Download the source of the DWA-131 (version E1) Linux driver.

  • Extract your source and go to /20140812_rtl8192EU_linux_v4.3.1.1_11320/os_dep/linux/.

  • Edit the os_intfs.c file.

  • Search for the following line: DBG_871X_LEVEL(_drv_info and change


    You have to actually insert this: //ed, 20150426 //

  • Then write the file and do:

    1. make
    2. make install
  • I also did the following:

    (Please note that the build-essential package is already installed on the machine. You'll have to apt-get install it if you want to be able to make and make install anything on the machine.)

Hope this helps make the process clearer. Thanks to the first author for the files to modify.

This way is working on my desktop (x86_64, ubuntu 14.04, kernel 3.13.0-49-generic). For your reference.

  1. Download the source of the DWA-131 (ver:E1) linux driver.
  2. Extract the zip file (DWA-131_Linux_driver_v4.3.1.1.zip)
  3. Modify two lines (//ed, 20150426 //...) in the rtw_ndev_notifier_call() function, file name os_intfs.c.

  4. compile the codes. (refer to readme.txt in the downloaded package)

  5. install the driver
