    Question ss808/mk808 problems with WiFi (bcm40181/rtl8187)

    I have a problem with activating WiFi on MK808 dongle.
    when i run :
    Code:
    modprobe rtl8187
    rtl8187: Unknown symbol __ieee80211_get_radio_led_name (err 0)
    rtl8187: Unknown symbol __ieee80211_get_tx_led_name (err 0)
    rtl8187: Unknown symbol __ieee80211_get_rx_led_name (err 0)
    Error: could not insert 'rtl8187' : Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
    Code:
    modprobe bcm40181
    ...
    rk29sdk_wifi_power: 1
    ...
    [DHD] _dhdsdio_download_firmware: dongle image file download failed
    [DHD] dhd_bus_start: dhdsdio_probe_download failed. firmware = /lib/firmware/fw_bcmdhd.bin nvram = /lib/firmware/bcmdhd.cal
    [DHD] Broadcom ............ [eth0] MAC: 00:00:00:00:00:00
    Code:
    ls /lib/firmware/fw_bcmdhd.bin
    ls: cannot access /lib/firmware/fw_bcmdhd.bin: No such file or directory
    ls /lib/firmware/bcmdhd.cal
    ls: cannot access /lib/firmware/bcmdhd.cal: No such file or directory
    Can someone help to solve this problem ?
    Maybe someone have precompilled modules & firmware for rtl8187 & bcm40181 ?
    Best regards Alex

    Hi,

    You may be better off by simply reimaging kali linux. After much problems with writing the kali image with dd utility in Backtrack 5, I had success with Win32diskimager. So far the alfa rtl8187 and tp-link ar9271 are working without problems (both were automatically detected by kali with no extra configuration). I have also activated the bcm40181 successfully without errors, although I am still working on connecting the SS808 to my WiFi network.
