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
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 have installed Wubi (Ubuntu 10.10) recently. It takes more time to boot than Windows. But my main concern is that my browsing speed is much slower compared to that on Windows 7. How can this be resolved?
I'm new to Linux and I have a problem with the Wireless connection.I've already searched for this problem but found so many threads it was impossible to sort it out.I've just installed Fedora 13 (Live CD - Install to Hard Drive) and apparently it's kinda... "empty". But my problem is with the wireless connection. There is a free network provided by my city for all the citizens. It is Open (authentication) for all. The problem is I can't "see" the network in Feodra. In Windows 7 I can "see" it just fine with 3 bars signal strength. It is great for surfing and emails. It is not intended for heavy downloading.
Why can't I "See" this network? There is another weird thing. The neighbor above me has a Wireless access point closed of course but I get 44% signal strength in Fedora and Full bars in Windows. Does it have to do anything? Maybe the low signal of the free network is the problem and Fedora makes it disappear completely?
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 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 am using linux fedora 13. Speed Internet is very low compared to Windows xp.I'm using ADSL. Especially when I'm using the FTP for download. my browser is firefox . my download manager is uget . I tested Almost all download manager . No difference.
I have a windows 7 (64bit sadly) desktop computer with no wireless capability. Now before I go out and spend money on a wireless usb thing, I was wondering if I could use my laptop (Ibm think pad T60 running ubuntu 10.10 dual boot with crunch bang) As a wireless access-point and connect via Ethernet cable the laptop to the desktop (Probably through a modem?) so I can use the Internet for games on the desktop computer. (Games that wont work in wine, sigh). Just a note though, 64 bit windows 7 will NOT run anything.
I installed the driver from Ralink (2011_0406_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V126.96.36.199_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). 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.

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]

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 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 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.

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 have two ubuntu boxes. One is a 9.04 desktop edition and the other is a 9.10 server edition I am working on some code that needs to be highly tolerant of bad network connections. It sends transactions to a central database, but when the network is not available, it caches them locally to retry later.
I have the code working beautifully on my desktop box. but when I test it on this other box (the one running server edition) there is a HUGE DELAY every time it tries and fails to send a transaction to the database when the network is down.
I tested a little further, and I found that if i unplug my network cable and run ping somehost on the desktop, it fails instantly saying "ping: unknown host somehost" But if I unplug the cable on the server box and run the same ping command it lingers for about 40 seconds before the ping fails.
Does anybody have any idea why this might be happening? Is this a 9.04 vs 9.10 difference? Is this a desktop vs server difference? Is there some package I can install, or some config setting I can change that will make the server box insta-fail just like the desktop does?
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 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.
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.

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my old laptop the other day, but it seems that Wifi card is having some troubles with co-operating The wired connection works like a charm but I'd prefer wireless on the laptop....I know the laptop is an oldy (PH Easynote R1904)

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
I've searched on-line and through these forums and I am still not able to find a solution to my problem. To start off, I do not know if my wireless card is turned on or off. I press Fn+f8 key and the LED turns on but Ubuntu does not detect the wireless networks. I am able to connect using the Ethernet port.
ps: I have already updated the Ubuntu software using the commands:
Quote:sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade
My Product:Quote:RaLink RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe
Ra-link makes a Linux driver for this card but from what I understand I should not install the driver unless I absolutely have to (do to the fact that it does not automatically update through the operating system) here is the link to the driver (btw, I do not know how to install driver on Ubuntu,
