ODROID-H2+ NETWORK LAN 2.5GBE R8125 driver

Post by der.einstein » Mon Jun 29, 2020 6:23 am

Dear odroiders,
I installed Ubuntu 20.04 on an NVME SSD in my shiny new ODROID-H2+ just before finding out that neither the onboard 2.5 GBE LAN ports nor the WIFI dongle 5a work out of the box with this board and with this OS.
I tried:
- downloading the driver source from the realtek site on another PC
- downloading the needed packages and dependencies on another PC
- installed packages and dependencies on the H2+
- tried compiling the drivers on the H2+

It failed for both the WIFI as well as the LAN network adapters!

Did someone succeed and is able to tell the "how to"?

Thanks a lot!

Hi.

Have you read this Wiki page? https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-h2/appli ... _on_h2plus
This page describes "How to install the LAN driver in various ways, with the internet or without that".

I recommend you to install the LAN driver using the DKMS Debian package so that you don't have to re-install the driver every time you install the new kernel.

I believe the .deb or manual installation perform both a DKMS installation with the same result. Someone to pitch in to confirm?

FInally, I succeeded using my smartphone with USB tethering.
The guide on the wiki page above did the trick, however, before you wrote the link I could not find that information in the wiki. So many thanks there!
I have working WIFI and LAN no!!!

Cheers.

There's no difference between those two methods unless the Debian package is installed via the Launchpad PPA. ;)
