    Wireless USB adapter hell


    Hello, I'm relatively new to Linux so my knowledge extends only to traversing through directories and a few commands.

    Yesterday I bought a Hawking Hi-Gain Wireless-N USB adapter. Now, I just installed Kubuntu on an old Compaq 2100 Presario laptop and I wanted to replace my equally old wireless card.

    To my disappointment, Kubuntu did not recognize the USB wireless adapter (although I kind of expected that) and I realized I had to get the drivers installed manually

    Ok, not so bad so far. I read up on how to use ndiswrapper and installed it. I downloaded the appropriate Windows XP (I also tried Vista) driver from the hawkingtech website (I can't yet post URL's) and proceeded to extract the .sys and .inf files. Well, turns out that there are no .sys or .inf files in the extraction. So, I assumed they were buried in the .CAB files. Ok, fine, I downloaded cabextract which eventually redirected me to use unshield (for the InstallShield). BOTH failed to extract the CAB and when I tried to extract it through Windows software (WinZip, 7zip, and Picozip) they all fail as well. I have also tried extracting the Vista drivers and the drivers included with the installation disk.

    A little research tells me that the CAB files are somewhat password protected to prevent people from doing exactly what I'm trying to. I did hours and hours of research on how to get this working to no avail.

    Help would be VERY much appreciated! Thank You!

    You can run lspci/lsusb to (hopefully) get a better idea of what chipset is being used by that card.

    Running the driver install .exe shows it to be an RALINK chip, which is pretty well supported in Linux.

    Alright, I typed in lsusb and dmesg | grep firmware. Lsusb just informs me that I have a Hawking device which I obviously already know. The second command returns nothing so I assumed I have no firmware errors.

    Reading another thread on Ubuntuforums tells me that my chipset is RT2870 chipset. That's the best info I got so I'm going to download that and see what I can do. I'll tell you how it goes.

    Ok, in the RAlink Linux drivers list you supplied to me earlier; I downloaded the Firmware and Drivers for RT2870USB...I extracted both however I have absolutely no clue on how to proceed from here.

    I read the readme in the driver folder however that's a bit too complex for me to decipher at this stage in my Linux experience.

    Could you please walk me through how to install these drivers and/or firmware?

    Ok, I used the command "sudo make install" when I moved myself into the directory of the extracted driver files. Heres' what I get
    Code:
    alex@alex-laptop:~/Desktop/Driver$ sudo make install
    make -C /home/alex/Desktop/Driver/os/linux -f Makefile.6 install
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/alex/Desktop/Driver/os/linux'
    rm -rf /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
    mkdir /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA

    install -d /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
    install -m 644 -c rt2870sta.ko /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/

    Can anyone please help? It seems as if it only half installed or something and I can't seem to figure out what to do after this. Responses would help future issues among other people.

    Post all of the information that this thread tells you how to find.

    Wireless Setup - Start Here

    You can just run the script suggested in the second part of that thread.

    You shouldn't need to install a driver, as it should already be in the kernel. This depends on the exact chipset that your card has and the kernel version that you are using. This info is part of the info that I already said that I needed. By installing a second driver, you will confuse the system and it will not work FOR SURE!

    You also don't want to be messing around with NDISwrapper, at this stage. That would be a THIRD driver that you now have installed! You really want to mess things up. NDISwrapper only uses WinXP drivers, last I knew. And I don't know if NDISwrapper is even being maintained anymore.

    I tried the walkthrough HRO admin posted however that did not work...At all. Network Manager doesn't even recognize the USB. Anyway, sorry again for not posting this information earlier.

    Thank You for the info.

    Did you run the script 4 times, or is there an error in my script. Everything is repeated 4 times.

    You do have the rt2870sta driver loading, but there seems to be no link to it and the USB wireless device. I don't know how to manually associated the two, but maybe the RT2870STA.dat file would do it. Did you edit it before you copied it?

    When you use the RT2870STA.dat file, I don't know if you can use the Networkmanager. You may have to use ifup/ifdown commands, and the like. Run these commands to show the network connections, and post the output.
    Code:
    ifconfig
    Code:
    iwconfig
    When using the ralink driver, the wireless connection will be called ra0.
