    rt2500pci - Linux Wireless

    I have noticed though that when I log out, then log back in, that Firefox is in 'Work Offline".
    Other than that, works like a charm!

    I got rid of the 'Work Offline' issue. I went into about:config and set toolkit.networkmanager.disable to true. Now all is good!

    The rt250pci driver works for a rt2860 chipset??!!

    If you say so, then it must be true. I thought that they were developing a rt2800pci driver for it.

    rt2x00.serialmonkey.com • View topic - rt2x00 802.11n devices

    EDIT: I bet that it is only working as a wireless-g card. That is why it works with the rt2500pci driver. To use wireless-n would require a different driver.

    Please correct me if my assumption is wrong.

    You're correct... it's functioning as wireless-G. I tried the rt2800 driver first, and couldn't seem to get an IP address. The device showed as active, but no connection. Installed the 2500 and had no problems at all from it.

    Do you have a wireless-n router or access point? Maybe the rt2800 driver is n only.

    EDIT: I was browsing through the RPM Fusion repository, and noticed that they have kernel modules for the rt2860 driver. This may be something that you want to check out. These are the two packages that you most likely need.

    RepoView: RPM Fusion (Fedora - free) 10 (i386)
    RepoView: RPM Fusion (Fedora - free) 10 (i386)

    This appears to be the Ralink driver, from the source found at their web site, that I referenced before. You can install it with YUM, after enabling the RPM Fusion repository,

    Nope, I have a wireless G router. And thanks for those links. I'll be taking a look at them shortly!

    I looks like this may be a wireless-n card, and I don't believe that it is supported in the compat-wireless package. There is some developement on it, and you can try the latest developemental drivers from the GIT repository.

    Rt2x00 GIT instructions - Rt2x00Wiki

    Some of the things that I read about the development say that the USB version works, but maybe not the PCI version. You can try it, but you may be better off using the Linux driver provided by Ralink.

    Ralink Technology: Linux



    To compile kernel modules, you need to install a few things first.

    kernel-devel (kernel source)
    kernel-headers
    gcc
    make

    And do you have the exact same wireless? If so, see my post above about adding the RPMFusion repository, and install the driver modules from them.

    If not, read this sticky, and start a new thread.
