Hi all,

I am trying to make the ASUS USB-13 wireless network adapter work on my laptop with slackware 13.37 but no luck so far.

dmesg gives the following

usb 1-2: firmware file rt3071.bin request failed (-2)
ERROR! NICLoadFirmware failed, status [=0x00000001]
rt28xx Initialised fail!

I tried to black list the following in the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

blacklist rt2800usb
blacklist rt2x00lib
blacklist rt2x00usb

I checked modinfo rt2870sta and it gives me the following:

filename: /lib/modules/2.6.37.6-smp/kernel/drivers/staging/rt2870/rt2870sta.ko
version: 2.1.0.0
lisense: GPL
description: RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Lan Linux Driver
firmware: rt3071.bin
firmware: rt3070.bin
firmware: rt2870.bin

Please help!!!!
