The ural driver supports USB 2.0 wireless adapters based on the Ralink RT2500USB chipset. The RT2500USB chipset is the first generation of 802.11b/g adapters from Ralink. It consists of two integrated chips, an RT2570 MAC/BBP and an RT2526 radio transceiver. The USB ID Repository. The home of the usb.ids file. Main- USB Devices. 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 a b c d e f all.

ADSL router with TI AR7 chip as central processor.

The Texas Instruments AR7 or TI-AR7 is a fully integrated single-chip ADSLCPE access router solution. The AR7 combines a MIPS32 processor, a DSP-based digital transceiver, and an ADSL analog front end.

Ownership history[edit]

In 2007, TI sold its DSL business to Infineon.[1][2]

In 2009, Infineon Technologies spins off its wireline division to Lantiq.[3]

On November 6, 2009, Lantiq announced that it became a standalone company.[4]

This page describes how to enable support for WiFi devices based on Realtek 802.11a/bg chips on Debian systems.


  1. Realtek RTL8180, RTL8185, RTL8187, RTL8187B, RTL8187SE devices


rtl8180 and rtl8187 are drivers for Realtek 802.11b and 802.11a/bg wireless LAN chips, included in the Linux kernel.

Sphairon Access Driver License

The produced kernel modules are:

  • rtl818x_pci (supported devices)

    • Supports PCI devices based on the RTL8180, RTL8185 and RTL8187SE chips.
  • rtl8187 (supported devices)

    • Supports USB devices based on the RTL8187 and RTL8187B chips.

For all drivers, no firmware from userspace is required for device operation.

Realtek 802.11n/802.11ac devices are supported by different drivers.


  1. Connect the device to your system. The necessary kernel module is automatically loaded for supported devices.

  2. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.

Supported Devices


The page HowToIdentifyADevice/PCI explains how to identify a PCI device.

The following list is based on the alias fields of modinfo rtl818x_pci in Debian 3.16 (3.16.7-ckt9-3~deb8u1) kernel images.
