    Cannot update Ralink chipset drivers


    Hello everybody,

    Am trying to update my RaLink RT73 USB Driver downloaded from homepagesdottu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/ but its not getting updated. I checked the previous version with lsmod and then modinfo rt73usb which is 2.3.0. The one am trying to install is 3.0.3. Am following the instructions in the readme file which says make and make install which doesnt give any errors but still i see the same old version 2.3.0. Also the update states that it would make the interface from wlan0 to rausb0 which is also not happening.

    Please help

    check if it loaded as rt73 rather than rt73usb. Looking at the README file this might be the case...
    The modprob command shown in the README is using rt73 as parameter. Check with
    Code:
    modprob -l rt73
