If you got no reply, that means that there were no errors. Check the output of lsmod for the modules, like I posted above. Also look for firmware messages: Code: ...

    For Via video support, there are some options:

    Unichrome
    Openchrome

    And the linux driver released by VIA:
    VIA Linux Portal

    It looks like the Openchrome driver is the default Linux driver, maybe you just need to configure it to use that driver. It may also be that your video isn't supported by Openchrome, and you then should try the VIA released driver.

    My hp a532x desktop has a Via VT 8378 [ S 3 unichrome ] graphics card which was recognised by my suse 10 os but not by Ubuntu. I had to paste my suse 10 X11 conf. file into Ubuntu to get the 1280x1024 resolution my monitor runs at.

    Ubuntu is a great os but it is not compatible with my box.

    the firmware command does not work.

    Firmware RT2501USB(RT2571W/RT2671):

    downloaded and extracted with no change

    Did you ever try to manually load the driver?

    They say that the short-term memory is the first thing to go! Just look back a few posts:

    When I loaded it on my Fedora 10 system, this is what it loaded:
    Code:
    Module                  Size  Used by
    rt73usb                23680  0

    rt2x00lib              33536  2 rt73usb,rt2x00usb
    It is possoble that now it will look for firmware, if it is needed, so run that command again.

    Once again I pasted sudo modprobe rt73usb into my terminal and was asked for my password.
    I typed in my password and cousinlucky desktop begins again.

    cousinlucky@cousinlucky-desktop:~$ sudo modprobe rt73usb
    cousinlucky@cousinlucky-desktop:~$ sudo modprobe rt73usb
    cousinlucky@cousinlucky-desktop:~$

    dmesg | grep firmware has the same result

    cousinlucky@cousinlucky-desktop:~$ dmesg | grep firmware
    cousinlucky@cousinlucky-desktop:~$ dmesg | grep firmware

    Perhaps I should give up trying to do this in Ubuntu 8.04 and try it using Suse 10.

    To load a kernel module you must have root privileges. In Ubuntu you precede the command with sudo (superuser do). Since there is no root in Ubuntu, the first user that is established is given the "root" privileges. That is why your password will work as the root password.

    When the modprobe command is successful, it won't give a message. It will just return with a new prompt. If it isn't successful, you get an error message.

    Now also check to see if the module loaded, with the lsmod command. Then you can view the last 10 lines of dmesg with this command.
    Code:
    dmesg | tail
    It may give info on what it did. Also look for the wireless in NetworkManager.

    I have to admit to being baffled by this. I don't understand why the modules do not show as being loaded, yet they show as using the usbcore module. You could at least check for the wireless connection with this command.
    Code:
    iwconfig
    At this point, it my not be a bad idea to consider using a newer distro. Fedora 10 is good, if you want to try it. When I try to load that usbcore module on Fedora 10, it tells me that it doesn't exist!
