Fedora Networking :: Setting Up F10 For Wireless Connection (Ralink RT2870)?
Apr 20, 2009
I have recently installed Fedora 10 onto my PC, dual booting with XP, and I am fairly new to linux. I have been trying to connect to my wireless network, but cannot even get Fedora to recognise my wireless adapter (Belkin N1 +MIMO). I have tried to follow a few tutorials that go through either the ndiswrapper method or by using native drivers. Because I don't have an internet connection on Fedora, I have to boot into XP to download the files for either ndiswrapper or the native drivers, rather than installing using the terminal.I downloaded the ndiswrapper RPM, and it failed because of an 'unexpected error', and when using the tarball, it could not find the makefile. The native drivers did not install because of unresolved dependencies.
I am new to Fedora have not used it in many years. I have zero networking knowledge. I read several threads on getting the RT 2870 USB connection working. But had no joy after install the three rt2870 kmod items from RPMFusion and rebooting. get this first step in networking done right?
Im a Linux newbie and am running OpenSuse 11.3 (Gnome, 126.96.36.199-0.5-desktop Kernel) and Ive an Asus N13 wifi dongle (linux compatible). I currently connect using my laptopĹ› internal wifi but I bought the dongle due to trouble with weak signal. It came with some sort of code that can be "compiled" but I havent got a clue how to do that (and I have been researching this matter for quite some time now). I then came across a post where someone with the same USB stick created and added only two small files to his filesystem and it worked...for him (maybe becasuse he was on a different Distro )
Ralink RT2870 USB Stick and created the two files mentioned in the post (network_drivers.rules and network_drivers.conf) and placed them in ETC... etc, etc! I rebooted the system but NetworkManager only lists it as "device not ready" ... So now back to square one.
I use Ubuntu 9.04 and try to get a Sweex LW053 USB wireless card (Ralink RT73/RT2500 chipset) to work. According to the Wiki list in the sticky thread, this one should work "out of the box" since 8.04.
lsusb delivers Bus 002 Device 002: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology Corp. RT2501USB Wireless Adapter and there is also some wlan0 entry that doesn't look too dodgy when typing ifconfig. From this I get that my laptop recognizes the card. I also typed in some numbers such as SSID and DNS server address in Preferences>Network Connections where asked (although the information that I had wasn't 100% what was asked for so I tried to guess what needs to be filled in which fields). However, I don't get an internet connection (Firefox can't find server...)
I have a Ralink rt2870 chip. Since it did not work with 11.2 out of the box (should it not be in the kernel?), I had to install this driver from the software search area on opensuse.org:
After installing it, it works, but only at reduced speed, (I think), because when keeping the mouse over the list item (of that connection) in Network Manager, a window pops up saying I only have 54Mbit/s.
It says: Type: WiFI Interface: ra Hardware adress: 00:15: ..... Driver: usb Status: connected Bit rate: 54 Mbit/s
Even with both machines in the same room, I'm only getting 1Mbps when using a pair of TL-WN321G wireless USB adapters to link my main box and my laptop. I'm using Fedora 11 on both machines. It is just as bad if I use the laptop's built-in wireless. lsusb shows the adapter uses the Ralink RT2501USB chipset. iwlist wlan0 rate gives "wlan0 unknown bit-rate information."
I just installed Fedora 13, and now I figured, maybe I don't know so much about pc anyway. Before I tell you my problem, I would like to say that I know a lot about windows, but about linux, I don't know anything. A plain beginner. And about my problem, it's more like a "how to" question than a problem.
You see, I don't know how to set up the wifi? The pc has installed wifi, and all I need to know is how I can connect to the internet. In windows you would usually just press the connection icon and then choose witch network you would like to access, and then eventually type in the password, and there you go. But it seems it's a little more advanced at Fedora. But I will give it a shot.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 . Need to get my wireless router working on my HP laptop. Have been using a Linksys WRT54G Router with windows and it is working properly. Tried setting up in NetworkManager but it does not work.
When looking at things in the Ubuntu terminal it says the network is DISABLED.
I've compiled and installed my rt2870sta.ko and the firmware to the correct locations but my ubuntu 10.10 is loading the one under /lib/modules/2.6.38-25-generic/kernel/drivers/staging/rt2870/rt2870sta.ko. How do I get it to use the correct driver? I've attached a screenshot of the module info.
I have installed the Fedora 14, and a Dlink usb wireless adapter (DWA-125) with rt2870 chipset, but this one isn't working with my OS.
I typed the lsusb command
Code: Bus 001 Device 006: ID 07d1:3c0d D-Link System DWA-125 Wireless N 150 Adapter(rev.A1) [Ralink RT2870] I downloaded the drivers from YUM, the rt2870 and also kmod-rt2870. I thing that this step is ok.
I typed the dmesg | grep 2870 command
Code: [21421.956342] usbcore: registered new interface driver rt2870 When I open the /proc/modules file, it shows the line bellow rt2870sta 542230 0 - Live 0xffffffffa02fc000
I tried getting a Belkin USB Wireless adapter:N150 to work in a fresh installation of 10.4 with no success. After reading several forum posts I tried both solutions with ndiswrapper and the XP driver and with the Ralink native driver with no luck.
Code: lsusb Bus 005 Device 008: ID 050d:935a Belkin Components Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
I seem to be missing some step(s) for getting an interface to appear in the output of ifconfig and iwconfig for a RT2870 wireless USB 802.11n adapter (made by Panda Wifi). Let me step you through what's I've done thus far.
After plugging the device in, it's low-level identification is as follows (see bold):
root@xps720# lsusb Bus 002 Device 002: ID 046d:0b06 Logitech, Inc. Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870 Wireless Adapter Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
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 just purchased a RALINK WIRELESS G PCMCIA WIFI CARD VISTA/LINUX (UBUNTU)â€Ź. It is supposed to be UBUNTU plug and play out of the box with no driver downloads needed.
I installed it but could not find a way to search the active Wi-Fi networks available like on my Actiontec card on windows xp. The wireless router/ethernet I have is an Actiontec setup for Qwest-DSL and Actiontec is the name of the wireless network.
Strangely I tried to choose setup a "new network" and entered Actiontec as the network name and it found the network and said it was connected to it. However the internet still is not working?
this is my first attempt to get into Linux (10.04 Lucid Lynx), and I'm eager to learn. The problem is however that i can't connect to the internet using my USB wifi dongle (Jensen 25150). I've tried what this link says:I've tried to blacklist rt2800usb, rt2x00lib, rt2x00usb and rt2870sta and to load "/etc/modules/rt3070sta", but no luck in that, so I simply do not know what to do next. Perhaps I haven't blacklisted them the right way? I've typed in the commands and saved Gedit and closed it. Is that the right way?
I just want to setup adhoc network using the wireless card that came with the box but I'm having a hard time getting it up. I have gone through a lot of posts about wireless troubleshooting but nothing has solved it. Left clicking the network manager tray icon always says wireless network is disconnected. "Enable Wireless" is checked.
Code: rfkill list 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I been having trouble getting my rt2070 wireless usb card to work on my desktop. I am using Ubuntu 10.10.
Pastebin of dmesg: [URL]
Code: Representative portion in case pastebin wipes this entry: [ 234.984025] hub 1-0:1.0: Cannot enable port 8. Maybe the USB cable is bad? [ 234.984041] hub 1-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 8
I've ubuntu 10.04 and I can't connect to router wi-fi with my new wireless adaptor usb (ralink 2870). I've tried various guides but nothing. The adaptor work fine with Windows and other linux distributions.
I've got a sitecom usb wireless adapter that uses the RT2870 chipset.I have got the rt2870sta module and have a ra0 interfaceI can set up a connection in the network tool and it recognises the usb device fine.
i don't have connection in my compuer write now so i whant to install RT2870 driver but i don't know how i found this tutorials [URL] but i can't install may be i have error in choise package this is my kernel version Linux Ouz3r4 184.108.40.206-74.fc14.i686 #1 SMP Thu Dec 23 16:17:40 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux i found this driver too [URL] but how to install
I'm having trouble installing my RaLink RT2561/RT61 wireless card. It seems that this driver causes problems for all ubuntu users, and I've tried a couple of work arounds, none of which work for me.
Firstly I downloaded the most recent driver from here: [URL]...RT2501PCI/mPCI/CB(RT61:RT2561/RT2561S/RT2661) is the driver I downloaded. Next I performed the following steps: Code: robinsjp@home-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential gcc Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
I have strange behaviour on my portable computer Asus UX30. I'm using latest Ubuntu 10.10 release. The main problem, and the most annoying, is a system freeze on shutdown, suspend, hibernate or even restart. For a week I'm trying to find a solution on the web, but no result. From what I noticed, computer freezes when a wireless card is turned off or on. Here are some basic info from wireless card:
I use Ubuntu 11.04 on a PC clone desktop.With ethernet cable connects automatically, despite compiling wlan0 not connected. Do not know what I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.04 over 30 times and still the same. Try to manually connect to the network connection did not work either hidden and also deal with ipv4 address assigned and neither worked.
1 ) Machine Brand and Model (PC/Laptop): desktop pc, clon.
2)lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 Host Bridge 00:02.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RS690 PCI to PCI Bridge (PCI Express Graphics Port 0)[code].....
Try setting manually to no avail not know if I did well. Ralink also downloaded from the rt2860sta and then compiled and did not work. Now I went to install Ubuntu 11.04 and change nothing but that which is above is what I have right now in the machine.
I recently purchased an MSI A5000 notebook, but regrettably it happens to use an obscure branded wireless card that's given me quite a bit of frustration to get working. I do have a bit of history behind this card that might help to solve this problem. First of all the card is a Ralink rt3090STA, and the manufacturer does provide a linux driver for this card (available here)
I was using Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit until last week, when I decided that I would like to try using a 64 bit system. I would prefer to use fedora instead of Ubuntu for the time being. Ubuntu had some major problems recognizing the card for some time before I was able to get it to work. The process I used to resolve the issue on my Ubuntu system has not proven successful on Fedora 13 x64, and I would like any help I can get to try to resolve this problem.
I have 2 workstations that I'm trying to network together so that I can backup each to the other. One is XP sp2 and the other Fedora 9. Since installing Samba on the Fedora box and trying to get it configured, I have a problem that Add/remove programs won't do installs because it says there's no connection to a network. Network Manager says there aren't any connections, but it worked before the Samba install. Mozilla and Thunderbird can access the internet OK. Both workstations are connected by cable to my router and thus to my ISP (DNS server).
Two questions:- where can I find hints on setting up a wired connection (which card's MAC address does it want? router or wrkstn?) and Am I right that Add/remove is stuffed because of Network Manager?I now have Samba working from Linux to XP, but still can't get into Linux from XP. I tried the Linux PC's MAC address and set up a wired connection in Network Manager. NM still thinks there isn't one...
