Ubuntu Networking :: Getting Ralink RT2070 Wireless USB Card To Work?
Mar 31, 2011
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]
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
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'm running 11.04. I have brought a new WiFi adapter, ralink rt2070. When I browse the internet, it takes a long time to load a webpage. When I download updates, it goes at 3,060 BYTES a second. Is there any solution? I'm using the default rt2800usb driver.
I just purchased a RALINK WIRELESS G PCMCIA WIFI CARD VISTA/LINUX (UBUNTU). 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?
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'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 recently bought a HP g62x laptop for myself. It sports a decent Core i3 processor, 4 gigs of RAM and a 500GB HDD. It also came with Wireless-N, a real bonus because I am using a Wireless-N router. The chipset is a Ralink 5390. It came preinstalled with Windows 7, and everything works fine in there (obviously).
I then proceeded to install Ubuntu 10.10 x64 a few days ago (this is before Natty came out) and everything worked . . . except WLAN. So I plugged in via Ethernet and went looking and found that I clearly wasn't the first to discover this issue. I found a guide here that I followed to download the Ralink Linux driver (which is stated to support my chipset), configure, compile, and install. Everything went perfectly, I restarted; lo and behold, I have a list of access points. I went to connect to mine, entered the password, and now the animated "WiFi wave" logo keeps going indefinitely until you click it, and it freezes for a few minutes. It will unfreeze if you let it sit but clicking it causes the same freeze again.
I couldn't really care less about a WiFi icon freezing, but a.) it freezes everything else in the system up, not just the icon, and b.) it never actually completes the WiFi connection. I really, really don't want to be forced to use Windows because of a crappy WiFi driver!
Since Natty came out I installed that and I can't even compile the driver without fatal errors, so I reverted to 10.10 and everything is the same as it was before. Note that this is a clean Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop Edition 64-bit install, nothing updated/modified/changed besides (attempting) to install this driver.
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.
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 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'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Server. I can't get my Wireless Card & Wired Card to work at the same time. My interfaces file is incorrect, when I comment out 1 of the interfaces the other works. I have attached my interfaces file.
I'm very new to openSUSE, so I need easy, clear instructions on how to install the driver for RaLink RT2561T wi-fi card. I have the driver and everything, I just don't have a clue on how to install it!
I have been messing around with ubuntu for a few hours now trying to get my wireless driver to work, but I am having no luck. It seems like I installed the driver right, and network-admin use to show the wireless, but I couldn't unlock it to mess with properties. Now it doesn't even show wireless, and I still can't unlock it, so I'm unable to get my wireless card to work.
I have a Dell inspiron E1705 that I recently installed 10.04 LTS on. The wireless card i'm using is a Belkin express card that worked perfectly fine with 9.1 but won't work with 10.04. lspci -v output shows the card as installed with a driver listed but under capabilities is says "access denied".
I've just loaded ubuntu to give my old laptop a new leece of life. Everything is fine expect that I can't get the wireless card to work. It just doesn't seem to be exist on my computer anymore. The computer has a button to turn wireless on and off, which worked when it was a windows system, but doesn't seem to do anything anymore. I'm an absolute ubuntu beginner.
After installing Lucid, I noticed that my Ralink RT2860 card would not connect to my home network using WPA2 despite the network being visible and of good strength. So I followed the guide at [url] in order to install the newest Ralink drivers.
After installation, same issue. That is, the card will connect to my a/b/g/n network if I leave it unprotected, but it will not connect to the same network if switch it to WPA2. After being given the passphrase, the wireless icon on the indicator applet shows that it is trying to connect, but after awhile it fails. Does anyone know why the built-in driver and also the official Ralink driver are no good for WPA2 in Ubuntu 10.4 for my RT2860 card?
I know some wireless card can work in Master Mode but it seems use madwifi driver. I know madwifi doesn't support usb dongles find a usb wireless card which can work as AP under Ubuntu. I have check this list [URL] I am not sure if ar9170usb.ko and its device support Master MOde.
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]
I have looked for information regarding this card. I have tried to install it using ndisgtk and ndiswrapper. I have the green light on the card but it won't work. When I have tried using ndiswrapper to install this card, I can get the driver to install but then the instructions say to type the following line which I do, but then it gives me an error message:
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
The error message is:
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release. WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.
I just bought a USB thumbdrive and I installed Ubuntu on it. I want Ubuntu to connect to the internet with virtually any computer that boots from the USB. Is there a single package that will install drivers for nearly every wireless card there is so that I can connect to the internet with out a hassle?
I noticed that the Linux Mint website lists support for more wireless cards as a feature and I am curious whether I can do this for the Ubuntu on my thumbdrive.
I have a Toshiba Satellite series laptop, i get ubuntu on it, all works well but there's a problem, my wireless card doesn't work, it doesn't show me the aviable wireless network, my Wireless Card is an Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10) but it works in windows. I used Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS. When i run these codes that's what it shows:
I have an issue with wireless connectivity on my laptop. Its a HP dm3 and the intel network adapter is supported as I can scan and detect wireless access points.However, when I attempt to connect to my home network, it fails and this is probably a result of two things: The BSSID is missing and/or the DHCP client ID is missing.I am running Kubuntu 10.10 32 bit
Yes, that's correct, it's a Celeron 400 running Xubuntu. And the card was working on 9.10, but not working anymore in 10.04 neither in 10.10.I've no other idea and I'm really considering moving back to 9.10Is there anything else I can check.
My laptop is an Amilo a1650 on which I've very recently installed Ubuntu 9.10. It's worked out fine so far, except that I can't get the wireless card to work. It's an internal Broadcom BCM4318. Where do I start with configuring it?
