General :: New Usb Ralink 3072 Adapter Will Not Start In Ubuntu 8.10
Feb 21, 2010
I have been using ubuntu 8.10 for over a year and have recently upgraded my huawei modem ubuntu will not recognise my new modem which has wireless capability so I went and got this new usb wireless adapter to connect using the wireless, I have followed the trouble shooting and have the windows drivers installed all ok but it will not enable the device I am at a total loss how to make it do what I need, I will say I am very thick when it comes to using the code to do anything and yet I build pc's and repair them for a hobby O im 54 years of age.
I have a rt2500 wireless USB adapter ( WLI-U2-KG54-AI ). I tried to use it on 2 computers loaded with Ubuntu 9.10. It worked well in WEP mode, but I am now trying to connect to a WPA router and the connection fails (the network manager icon keeps rolling forever). WPA works well on those machines when using another wireless adapter (not rt2500 based). This adapter also works well with WPA under windows. Is this device supposed to work with Ubuntu in WPA mode
I just did a Wheezy reinstall (I just started using LVM on LUKS), but my Ralink RT5370 usb wireless adapter wouldn't work, even though I have firmware-ralink installed. When I click on the Network Manager icon, it lists my home network (WPA2 passphrase) as available, but clicking on it yields no result.
Before the system reinstall, I've been using the adapter with firmware-ralink without problems. As far as "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade" goes, my system is up-to-date.
I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling firmware-ralink (rebooted too), but to no avail. The adapter seems to be undamaged.
Here are a few pieces of info that might be useful:
Code: Select all$ uname -a Linux watershed 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.60-1+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Code: Select all# lsusb ...¬† Bus 004 Device 007: ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter
I've just installed Debian Wheezy on my old Toshiba Satellite A10 (Intel celeron 2.20 GHz, 1GB Ram, 30 GB hard drive) and tried to connect to my home wifi network with a usb wifi adapter (Hamlet HNWU254G). lsusb in terminal says it is Ralink RT2501. Ethernet worked fine, so I installed firmware-ralink package, the adapter was recognized and I was able to connect.
However, I heard quite frequently a strange whistle and realized it came from the usb wifi adapter; it also got very very hot. Other strange thing: the computer some times freezes: screen flickering, loss of control of mouse and keyboard, need to shut down with power button.
At first I thought it was the video card not being powerful enough for Gnome (even classic), but then I installed Xfce4 and nothing changed. Instead, when working offline, freezes happen less frequently (but still happen).
I've tried the usb adapter on another laptop with wheezy: it gets hot, but there are no whistles and freezes.
I have somehow messed up my network (onboard) card in the process of configuring network settings. how I managed to do so is that I did not use ifdown before making changes to my "/etc/network/interfaces" file. Also I think it might be relevant to mention that the sshd was running -although with no active connections at that time- since I have the service installed on my 10.04 Ubuntu Server (x64). So step by step what I did to end up with no network connection:
3) sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces and then applied my network settings (IP, netmask, etc.). The syntax and configuration of my "interfaces" file is without flaw since it was simple, typical and was assigning my up to then DHCP assigned IP of 192.168.2.3 to static.
At about that point and although "ifconfig" showed the changes had been applied as planned the network card stopped working. I could no longer ping anyone but myself and the leds both on my network adapter and on my switch were turned off. Since my configuration also has a Windows 7 installation I rebooted to Windows in hope of troubleshooting through device manager but I got an error code 10 which means that the adapter could not start. Did I fry my network adapter for good and for all or I still have a chance of repairing it?
PS: After a closer look I saw that the NIC's LEDs indicate that the device cannot start. I am considering to reboot my MB as a last resort since the NIC is an onboard device and changing BIOS settings has done nothing to restore it.
I have a fit-PC server with Debian GNU/Linux (Lenny). I would like to use it as a wifi access point since my Linksys WRT54GS has become unstable.I have a USB Ralink wifi NIC. When I insert the card to USB I can see this with lsusb: Bus 001 Device 002: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501/RT2573 Wireless Adapter.I have tried following various HOWTOs on using wifi card as AP in Linux, however, it seems that the card cannot go into monitor mode. I believe this is because I must use a newer driver or upload non-free firmware or something like that.I have tried installed wicd, but it does not help.
I bought this wifi adapter because I was told that it is one of the most common used Linux supported wifi cards that can be used as access point and a lot of other stuff.How do I set up this USB wifi card as wireless access point in Debian Lenny?
I am using Rhel5 and I'm new to linux so pardon me for sounding a bit green around the ears.Anyway..I got an error message a few weeks ago about how the start up script that displays icons on the far right of my start panel was malfunctioning and it was going to be deleted from the start-up. didn't really know what it really meant and I just clicked ok.wireless eth0 status icon as well as my amarok status icon are hidden on the start panel. How do I get it back/add that script back to the start-up
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 (32-bit) on a MSI A5000 which appears to have a RaLink RT3090 wireless card. So far everything seems to work except the Wireless card.
The problem is that no option for wireless appears in the network manager, it only shows the options for wired connection. This computer does have a button on the front to enable/disable wireless and I have confirmed that is is on, as there is a green indicator light showing this.
Can anyone tell me the status of the RaLink RT3090 with Ubuntu 10.04? I have looked through various posts here about getting this card working with earlier versions of the OS, where complicated procedures with mixed and apparently intermittent results are described. Do these measures also need to be followed with 10.04?
I have attempted several older solutions found in assorted threads here and I am still unable to get the card to even so much as show up in the network manager. The proceedure which seemed the most promising is here [URL]
It was recommended for my older Compaq desktop with a Celeron processor and 256mb of ram. I got the windows driver installer installed, but it was looking for a inf file and the driver I have on the cd is an executable file for an installer, so it wouldn't work. The cd also has a linux driver, but I do not know how to use terminal to install it. I'm at my wits end. I feel pretty stupid, because I know nothing about linux.
I use Opensuse 11 with fvwm. How can I get conky start automatically when I start fvwm?
I setup the conky under fvwm session for my Opensuse 11 but it won't start automatically. I am wondering how to write some kind of scripts to force it to start automatically and with a delay about 10 seconds after fvwm starts.
About a year ago I had a different computer with this same wireless card (edimax EW-7128g) and it was recognized immediately after I installed ubuntu 8.10. I found this hardware compatibility page, and it says it is compatible, at least on 9.04.
After reading this old guide I found:[URL].. I downloaded the latest driver, and followed the instructions (i had to refer to the readme too, some things were slightly different which I'm assuming is because it's the 2010 driver not the version referred to in that tutorial) up until:
(e) copy the rt61.ko driver file to the modules directory then load it Code: $ sudo cp rt61.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/. $ sudo depmod $ sudo modprobe rt61
I don't see where rt61.ko is.I've got the information for my wireless connection edited into /etc/Wireless/RT61STA/ rt61sta.dat iwconfig shows pretty much default stuff, no mention of my wireless card or any type of connection, though the card does show up at the bottom of the lspci query. I added the wireless connection information into the "Network Connections" prompt in the preferences, but obviously that's not accomplished much of anything for obvious reasons. Should I just install 9.04? Judging from this account, getting this wireless card to work would be a hell of a lot easier.
I have an EEEPC 1000HE that has an AzureWave AW-NE766 wireless card. As far as I know, the card is based on the Ralink 2860 chipset.
It always worked fine under eeebuntu 3.0, but I just installed Ubuntu NBR 10.4 and now it's not detected at all.
Kernel : 2.6.32-22-generic i686
lspci and lshw show no mention of wireless card at all. Network-manager and wicd both show wired connections, but no mention of wireless at all.
I followed the instructions on the "Solved" post to install the latest Ralink driver from Jan 29. It all went fine, except "ifconfig wlan0 up/down" and "ifconfig ra0 up/down" both return "ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device"
how to tell Ubuntu that I have a wireless card in there?
I bought an USB-WLAN stick, which does not recognize any network. A Ralink 802.11 bg WLAN Stick works fine, but the Ralink 802.11 n WLAN Stick does not work unfortunately. Both get recognized by the nm-applet of network manager but only the first one recognizes my network and is able to connect to it.
Just built a new computer and I think I somehow need to activate my wireless card to get it working.The hardware seems to show up. I get "Wireless Networks" in my network manager but it is grayed out and says disconnected. I think it is an easy fix I just cannot find it.
I have new emachine 1401 and I can't get it to connect to wireless. It does detect networks but when connecting keeps asking for password over and over and never connects. I don't have wired connection at all and the wifi router is not managed by me, so I'm retyping output through my windows xp samsung netbook which works over the same wireless network...
I have tries some other solutions I found around here (install bcmwl-kernel-source, rt3090-dkms_126.96.36.199, blacklist rt2800pci...) so it's not original configuration but behaves exactly the same.
I installed the driver from Ralink (2011_0406_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V188.8.131.52_DPO) and followed the instructions in other threads and my card does not work. I am getting this message.
"$ dmesg | grep -e rt5 -e wlan
[ 14.454006] rt5390sta: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel. I have also installed the Ralink RutilT program using synaptic. I can see my wireless device and many others around me but I can't connect.
I have recently upgraded my USB wireless network connection for one of my computers to N from G. As I am (temporarily) based in China the device (and all documentation) are in Chinese. I THINK it is based on a Ralink 28XX chip. I am running Ubuntu 10.04. Network Manager claims that the wireless network is disconnected does not list any sources This is the basic info that I am able to find (I am using these commands in ignorance, by the way!) lsusb shows:

dmesg shows (after plugging the thing in):

I just acquired a Wi-Fire long-range wi-fi adapter, and I would like to test it with my Ubuntu desktop computer. However, my machine defaults to using an internal, discrete wireless card (not hard-wired into the motherboard.) How can I set my new wireless adapter as the default wireless connection? How can I disable my internal wireless card (without opening my computer case)?
