Ubuntu Networking :: Not Working: Zonet ZEW1642D (Ralink Rt3062 Chipset) In Studio
Oct 29, 2010
other forums to get my Zonet ZEW1642D to work on my new install of Ubuntu Studio 10.10. None of the how-tos I've found APPEAR to have worked although I guess I'm not entirely sure how I would know. There is a pair of computers at the top right of my screen by the date/time. When I right click there the following are all checked:
but when I click Connection Information Auto eth0 is the only connection that comes up (which must be the wired connection I'm using to submit this) Here are the things I've tried:
1) README_STA included in the driver files downloaded from the Ralink website although I must admit this was a bit over my head
I finally jumped on Fedora, having been on Windows then recently on OSX. Anyway, I wanted to run a desktop dedicated to Fedora but my setup is far from the router. This meant that I had to buy a wifi card and I chose Zonet ZEW1642D. To my disappointment it's not even being detected.
I'm trying to get a Rosewill RNX-N250PC wireless card w/ ralink rt3062 chip to work in a new build. I am able to see the card in Device Manager, but can't get the driver to work despite trying many of the suggestions I've read elsewhere. I installed build-essentials and downloaded the driver from ralink. I unzipped the folder, and started to follow README as well as this thread rt3062 [URL]. So, I've adjusted MODE and TARGET as instructed in Makefile. I also adjusted the following sections of red text from Makefile:
ifeq ($(PLATFORM),PC) # Linux 2.6 LINUX_SRC = /lib/modules/$(2.6.35-22-generic)/build # Linux 2.4 Change to your local setting #LINUX_SRC = /usr/src/linux-2.4 LINUX_SRC_MODULE = /lib/modules/$(2.6.35-22-generic)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ CROSS_COMPILE = endif
Then I set HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y and HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y in /os/linux/config.mk in the driver folder. Then I code: $ make (also tried sudo make with same result) and get: make -C tools make: Entering directory `/home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v184.108.40.206/tools' gcc -g bin2h.c -o bin2h make: Leaving directory `/home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v220.127.116.11/tools' /home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v18.104.22.168/tools/bin2h cp -f os/linux/Makefile.6 /home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v22.214.171.124/os/linux/Makefile make -C /lib/modules//build SUBDIRS=/home/das/2010_07_16_RT3062_Linux_STA_v126.96.36.199/os/linux modules make: *** /lib/modules//build: No such file or directory.

Just installed Ubuntu Studio 10.04 and everything seems to be working nicely except I have no networking.
The card does not appear in the Network Settings GUI. The only 3 tabs I have are General, DNS, and Hosts.
A screen grab is attached.
I'm a long time Windows user trying out some of the best Linux creative apps I can find. So, Ubuntu Studio was a no brainer. I checked the manufacturer's site for linux drivers and they are available, but I don't know how current. (Edimax site, not RaLink's site.) I opened the file and it looks like it needs to be compiled and installed to work. Something I know almost nothing about. The card is listed as supported in this forum for Ubuntu 9x but I can't find information about it for 10.04
PS. I have no networking on the system but I can transfer files via USB flash drives if needed.

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 have Debian 5.0.3 and I've had a lot of trouble installing Linsys WMP600N PCI card - Ralink chipset - 2860. I had it installed in the board, before I installed/compiled Debian. What I'm thinking I should have done was chosen Desktop and Laptop during the guided install. I tried expert install, but I was over-whelmed with options. Anyways, I tried NDISwrapper in many different ways. My last tries showed that the driver and device was working. No matter what I did, I would never get an interface with a wireless extension. I couldn't find any useful information anywhere, including Ubuntu forums - I'm sure you think I'm stupid or evil.
I eventually figured I would get the drivers directly from Ralink website. [URL] The one that looked like it would work (RT2860PCI/mPCI/CB/PCIe(RT2760/RT2790/RT2860/RT2890) would error out when I would try to extract anything. I used 2nd one (RT2860WebUI) which worked. If anyone does use it, be sure to read all documentation that is included, including the README. After I was done installing/compiling it, I got ra0 interface and could see my router.
I couldn't connect to it because I use WPA2 and that wasn't an option for encryption. I will work on that later. I wanted to share this information with anyone who might need this.
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_184.108.40.206, 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_V220.127.116.11_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

I have tried installing "linux-backports-modules-wireless-2.6.32-22-preempt" but I receive a notification that it failed to install properly upon rebooting... I have also tried installing compat-wireless but it fails to make because it can't find the linux kernel header directory...(I do have the headers, but how do I get the makefile to see a non-default header dir?) sudo modprobe ath9k runs, but running sudo ifconfig wlan0 up returns this error:

I have tried setting it up from YAST but no joy so far an I am clueless. The device is a Zonet ZEW2500P(04) USB wireless interface. From the sticky "My wireless doesn't work - a primer on what I should do next"

I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and am trying to get my Zonet zew2502 wireless usb to work right. So far I have
-installed ndiswrapper from the Synaptic Package manager
-copied the netMw225.inf and MRVW225.sys to my download directory
At first, when I ran ndiswrapper -l I got NOTHING back. When I plugged in the zonet to usb and ran lsusb I got
Bus 001 Device 009: ID 1286:1fab Marvell Semiconductor, Inc.This doesn't appear on the list when the zonet is not plugged in so I can only assume that this is it. Anyhow, I did a sudo ndiswrapper -i netMw225.inf and everything seemed to install, so now when I do ndiswrapper -l I get:
i'm a total ubuntu newbie(installed yesterday!), and i cant seem to get my network card to work. i have an 802.11n Zonet ZEW1642S Wireless PCI Adapter, and it came with a cd that contained the drivers necessary for installation on windows. i understand that the drivers are not compatible with ubuntu, but is there any method that i can get my wireless card to work? if so could someone explain (in newbie speak, sorry!) how to do it?
I just got 5.2 installed on my HP zd7000 laptop. I have a Zonet ZEW2502 USB Adapter but doesnt seem to be recognized. I tried to search in the forums and Google but didnt find any tutorial. point me in the right direction? or do I have to buy a different USB adapter?
After upgrading to Lucid said adapter is nonfunctional - NetworkManager won't start on booting (I'm using 2870sta module) and it finds no networks - neither does WICD. The device itself is identified: "lsusb" gives a line "Bus 001 Device 005: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology Corp." "iwconfig" gives nothing under lo and eth0 and this under wlan0:
Desktop PC with Trendnet TEW-642 PCI wireless N adapter (Ralink 2860 STA driver). Running openSUSE 11.3 X8_64 with KDE 4.4.4. Software Management and KNetwork Manager both identified rt2860STA as installed. However, KNetwork Manager's authentication window keeps popping up every few seconds and I cannot get wireless.
[ 6.270671] rt2860sta: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned. [ 6.275290] alloc irq_desc for 21 on node 0 [ 6.275294] alloc kstat_irqs on node 0
I have downloaded and extracted the latest rt2860.bin file from the Ralinktech website to Desktop but even as root I cannot copy it to /lib/firmware or replace the existing rt2860.bin file in /lib/firmware.
I'm currently using Ubuntu Studio Lucid and would like to use Ubuntu Studio Maverick, but I'm unsure how to go about the upgrade. Should I upgrade to generic ubuntu maverick then upgrade to ubuntu studio? Or install ubuntu studio maverick from a DVD?? Or something else?? I should say that I have a separate /home partition.
[Edited because what I first wrote was confusing:] when I started the process of upgrading with Update Manager it said that quite a lot of things would be removed (it would be upgrading only to generic Ubuntu for one thing)---I aborted that by the way. I was wondering if anybody knew of a way to avoid having to first sort of note everything that I have installed, then do the upgrade to generic Ubuntu, then do an upgrade to Ubuntu Studio, then reinstall all of the apps in their newer versions. Might there be a way to upgrade the OS itself first and then just directly update the apps without having to reinstall them, figuring out what to install all over again too?
I've been using an Asus motherboard with the Marvell 88E8001 Gigabit LAN chipset for a couple of years now. It works great with any 32 bit OS, but has always failed when a 64 bit OS is installed - even Win 7. I plan to switch up to 64 bit Slack, and I need to use an ancient 3COM PCI card to get 64 bit connectivity.
I recently tested many 64 bit Linux distros (Debian, Ubuntu, Mint, PCBSD, etc), and I found that none seem to work except Fedora 12 and OpenSUSE 13.1. They have somehow gotten the skge modules to work with this chipset. Even the "driver" that Marvell recommends to use with this chipset fails (they say to use the sk98lin module).
Any ideas how OpenSUSE can get this chipset working with 64 bit OSs? I've thought about copying the skge.h and skge.c files from OpenSUSE's kernel source and replacing the ones in the Slackware kernel source for recompiling, but I'm not sure if this would be a another waste of time.
I have a ICM532 chipset based webcam (D-Link DSB-C320). I could not find a solution across the forums to get the camera working properly for me on Ubuntu 10.10. There is a thread [URL] concerning the same chipset on the forums, but it is quite old. I do not want to risk breaking my system while attempting the fix. It would be really helpful if you could help me on the same. Also, when I check the webcam through Cheese, I get images with alternating yellow-tinge and blue-tinge.
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'm having troubles using this not so new webcam. I didnt found any thread that have a problem like mine. In older kernel versions the webcam started working compiling and installing zc3xx module, but as far as I googled and lsmod this module now comes with default kernel. As I can see, the module itself recognizes the webcam, but fails in the process.Does someone have some idea of fixing? Should I report it to launchpad (and so, which section?)?
