OpenSUSE Wireless :: Linksys WUSB600N (rt2870) - Insmod: Error Inserting 'rt2870sta.ko': -1 Invalid Module Format

May 24, 2009

I'm new to openSUSE and as a matter of fact, to linux too. I've got a Linksys WUSB600N wireless adapter which used to work fine with some live versions of linux that I was testing out before moving onto suse... Each time, upon booting using live CDs, I used to copy the driver I had downloaded from:

SpeedShare - Download rt2870-kernel-2.6.24-nemesis.tar.bz2

Then 'make' and get into the driver's os/linux directory to load the driver using 'insmod rt2870sta.ko' Now, upon doing a 'make' and 'make install', followed by the 'insmod rt2870sta.ko', I get the error saying:

insmod: error inserting 'rt2870sta.ko': -1 Invalid module format

I tried doing 'modprobe -rv rt2870sta' and didn't get any error messages. But while doing 'modprobe -v', this error shows up: insmod /lib/modules/
FATAL: Error inserting rt2870sta (/lib/modules/ Invalid module format

Ubuntu Networking :: Rt2870sta Driver - Transfers Slowing And Stopping Regularly

Jul 28, 2011

I have a tenda wireless adaptor running on 11.04 natty. The USB id is: 148F 3070

Using the already installed drivers rt2800usb it can connect to all 13 channels but is very flaky, transfers slowing and stopping regularly. The rt2870sta driver is a lot more stable, but it will only connect to channels 1-11, but I need to use channel 13 due to massive wifi congestion on other channels...

I've tried iwpriv but it says there are no ioctls for the device.

Is there any way to get the installed driver rt2870sta to scan and connect to channel 13?

I've also tried to install the latest drivers from the ralink website: rt2870sta says it can see all 14 channels, but fails to scan. I also tried rt3070 driver but I cannot insmod as there are errors...

Ubuntu :: Getting Keebox W150nu To Work With 11.04 - Sudo Password

May 9, 2011

I'm a totally new Linxu/Ubuntu user and terrified of command prompt/terminal. But I'm trying to get my Keebox W150nu to work with 11.04 and following Chili's suggestion on doing so, but ran into an early problem:

robert@lawsonbox:~$ ndiswrapper -1
The program 'ndiswrapper' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common
robert@lawsonbox:~$ "sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common"
[sudo] password for robert:

At that last line I am stumped. I can't input anything, no matter what key I press nothing is showing up there. If I knew the password I wouldn't be able to put it in! Do I hit an F key or what at this stage?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless The Trial Mode Is Working Great, But The Wireless Will Not Work?

Jul 21, 2010

I want to switch my laptop from XP to Ubuntu, but right now, i cant risk installing it. i dont want to have it partitioned so i can dual boot, so for now i only run the try-it-out mode.Before i consider installing though, i want to see if i can get everything to work ahead of time, that way im not regreting instalation. I have a Compaq Presario V2000 laptop, with 55GB hard drive and 516MB ram. So far, the trial mode is working great, but the wireless will not work. Ive tried to install the driver, but i am unable to do so. I have looked this up, and i have tried many things, and so far, none have worked.I was wondering if it was just part of the trial thing or not, but it is a Broadcom Wireless BCM4318 driver

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Suddenly Stopped Working AND Rfkill Command Not Working

Jul 13, 2011

When originally installing 11.04 I had problems getting my Ralink 5390 wireless card to work.

Today my computer froze completely and I had to turn it off via the power switch. When I turned it back on, wireless was no longer recognized! My iPod can connect to the network just fine, so it must be an Ubuntu problem. There are no problems with my ethernet connection either.

I researched this and found several threads about blocking and unblocking wireless devices using the rfkill command. Well, unfortunately for me the rfkill command doesn't work. When I type sudo rfkill list or sudo rfkill unblock all, nothing happens; it just returns me to my bash prompt. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling rfkill...nothing.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Not Working \ When Click On Networking Panel, It Says WLAN Interface Is Unavailable?

Jul 8, 2011

I have just installed openSuse 11.4 KDE 64-bit on a Dell M1330. When I click on my networking panel, it says WLAN interface is unavailable. I've followed the steps in the stickied post and found the WLAN hardware info, a screenshot of which is below:Uploaded with ImageShack.usNext it says to do this - you need to look at the logs, in particular the info in /var/log/boot.msg. To see this, you need YaST => Miscellaneous => System Logs and select boot.msg.In YaST there is no such option for system logs under miscellaneous, so I can't do that. The results of the sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan command produce the following:

root's password:
lo Interface doesn't support scanning.
eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

Ubuntu Networking :: WUSB600N V1 Install On 10.04 - Iwconfig Shows Wlan0 With An ESSID:"" And Nickname: "RT2870STA"

Jan 6, 2011

I've been trying now for 2 days to get my WUSB600N v1 adapter installed on 10.04. I'm a bit of a noob but have been able to follow some posts on here on getting it set up. This is what I've done:

Installed the Ralink RT2870 drivers. Changed the config.mk to enable some parameters. Compiled and installed. Added some entries to blacklist.conf. Updated network/interfaces to include my wpa settings and passphrase. Restarted/rebooted/reinstalled about 100 times!

Here's what happens: iwconfig shows wlan0 with an ESSID:"" and Nickname: "RT2870STA" iwlist wlan0 scan shows my router fine (although does not show Cell 02 which should be the 5GHZ range). So basically it's not connecting to my router. Not sure if I missed any steps. Will gladly provide some extra output if needed. Pulling my hair out over this now ready to throw the adapter in the trash.

And still have no wifi, when I click the icon in the menu bar it says under "Wireless Networks": "wireless is disabled by hardware switch", which ins't true because on my Vostro 1520, there is only one switch and it is in the on position. I've tried 3 versions of ubuntu and none of them work with wifi getting tired of it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working In 10.04?

May 17, 2010

In the wake of a spate of posts complaining that wireless is not working in 10.04 here is mine. I'm on a (relatively old) AMD Duron 1.5Ghz, 1.5G memory with a VIA KM-266 motherboard. Wireless worked fine in 9.10. With a fresh install of the new 10.04, the usb wireless adapter is not detected, the tab to add a new wireless connection is grayed out, starting the KNetworkManager (did I got the name right?) does nothing (that is, no application starts), etc.note: if you are wondering how I am accessing the internet, I just fired up the 9.10 live CD, which as you can imagine is not the most practical thing in the world.Here is the info. The commands lsusb and lspci spit the following:

grodrigues@grodrigues-desktop:~$ lsusb

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working In 10.04.2?

May 7, 2011

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.4.2. The wireless worked perfectly in 9.04, but did not not work at all in 9.10, and now 10.4.2. I'm running a Planex USB wireless dongle on an ancient ShuttleXPC SN41G (circa 2003) - the wireless dongle is an XLink Kai GW-USMini2N. I'm connected right now on the Shuttle via Ethernet cable, but would really like to get the wireless up and running again. Here's all the info I could get as per the pinned topic instructions:

Ubuntu Networking :: HP 620 Wireless LAN Not Working

I installed ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop hp 620 and wired connection is working but wireless is not working at all. I checked the old posts and when I enter the command "iwconfig" it shows the following:

eth0 no wireless extensions.

I read in the older posts that the "Access Point: Not-Associated" should be "Access Point: Invalid" and the command that is used for this purpose is " sudo iwconfig wlan0 ap auto"
and it did work-but for sometime, and again it showed me "not associated" when I restarted.

Networking :: Cannot Get Wireless Networking Working - Cannot Be Displayed In Firefox

Mar 16, 2010

Previously I have had Linux installed on my laptop (OpenSUSE, Ubuntu) with no problems as far as wireless networking in concerned. Due to wanting to play a certain game (which I have since grown tired of), I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Recently I have booted up to live DVDs of PC-BSD, Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and OpenSUSE 11.2 and I cannot get wireless networking working.

At home I use WPA2 Personal. I put in the passphrase into NetworkManager (the same as I do for Windows), and the computer gets an IP address from the router (I use 10.3.5.x at home). The problem is, I cannot connect to the Internets. If I do "ping -c 3 cnet.com" it gives me the proper response of, but if I try to go to cnet.com, I get a page cannot be displayed in Firefox.

I get this error for every website. I don't understand it seeing that I can ping the websites, but even if I put the IP address in the URL, it still doesn't load the page. What am I doing wrong? Everything is dynamic, as in Win7. But everything works perfectly in Windows, but no such luck in Linux. I know it must be something simple, but I'm at a loss. Seeing that I no longer play Star Trek Online, I'd like to put Linux or BSD back on my laptop, but no Internet is not an option.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get USB Wireless Installed/working In 9.10

Jan 10, 2010

I've bought an RALINK getnet Wireless USB adapter and am trying to get it to work on a dual boot pc running XP and 9.10. According to the forums and the manufacturers website (www.getnet.com.tw), this should be supported in Linux.

Using the disk that came with it, I have gotten it to work in Windows. I've spent nearly a day scouring the Ubuntu forums and trying different things, but still haven't got it working in 9.10. (I think that most of my confusion is that many of the threads are for earlier versions)

If I type "iwconfig", I get this:

graeme@graeme-desktop:~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wmaster0 no wireless extensions.


I have the CD that has a LINUX directory, but am not sure what to do with it. Through other threads I have determined that my drivers are rt2870.sys and .inf and have downloaded these. I'm not really sure what to do with them next..... Many threads talk about going System>Administration>Networking, but I don't have this as an option. I have however got an option which I downloaded called "Windows Wireless Drivers" which seemed to let me load the rt2870.inf driver, but then says "No" after it (not very helpful).

I have enabled Wireless Networking, and added my SSID etc etc, but I still don't connect.

Ubuntu Networking :: Get Your Atheros 802.11n Wireless Working In 9.1?

Jan 11, 2010

I spent days trying to figure out how to get my atheros AR928x 802.11n wireless card to work in Ubuntu. The card worked perfect in Windows 7 but the connection kept dropping in Ubuntu. It would find my router and connect with 60% signal for about 5 seconds, then fall down to about 25% signal and then cut out altogether. After searching for days to find a solution, I finally figured it out and figured Id post it here to let everyone else in the same boat have a working wireless too!

I found this solution from:[URL].. This solution is for JAUNTY (Ubuntu 9.04), so if you are running Jaunty, you can just follow that post. If you are using Karmic (Ubuntu 9.1), you can follow this tutorial I'm posting. It's pretty simple: First, make sure you got all your files up to date. Type in a terminal:

sudo apt-get update Let that run, and once its done, type into terminal:
sudo apt-get upgrade
Once that finished, restart your computer. Again open up terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-karmic

If you are using Jaunty, instead of karmic type in jaunty, if you use another version of ubuntu, you can find a list of versions and their names here:[URL].. Restart your computer one more time, and you should be good to go! This has been tested and confirmed to work on: -Ubuntu 9.1(karmic) with an Atheros 928x 802.11n wireless card, using the Ubuntu installed network software, in a Gateway NV53 laptop connected to a belkin 802.11n wireless router.-HP base station / 802.11g airport express

This has been tested and does not work/has issues with:

-airport extreme I hope this works for you too, and if it does, please let me know with your hardware and Ubuntu version so I can post here what other setups have been confirmed to let this work.

Ubuntu Networking :: Eee Pc 1000 Wireless Not Working?

Feb 5, 2010

I am trying to get the RT2860 card in an Eee PC 1000 to work. I have tried Ubuntu 8.04 and 9.10, all the "fixes" below I can find on the web but nothing seems to work.

[URL] I downloaded the source code from Ralink and using module-assistant followed the instructions.

I can see the wireless network, it tries to connect but just keeps asking for the security key. I have tried WEP, WPA and no security at all but still no go. All works fine if wired. The F2 toggle seems to work OK, the WLAN is switched on in the BIOS. The "iwconfig" command shows the RT2860 in Ubuntu 9.10 but not in Ubuntu 8.04.
