    Ralink rt2870sta


    I am trying to get the native drivers from Ralink corp. to work.

    I ran the lsusb:
    Code:
    root@htpc-desktop:~# lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 009: ID 1737:0078 Linksys 
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 003: ID 046d:c058 Logitech, Inc. 
    Bus 002 Device 002: ID 04f2:0402 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd 
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
    Before making the file I edited /common/rtusb_dev_id.c to add {USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x007}, /* Linksys WUSB100 v2 */

    Then I,
    Code:
    make
    make install
    
    modprobe rt2870sta
    
    iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    There is no r0 interface please tell me what I'm doing wrong

    There may be more to adding support than just adding the PCIID to the diver. It may be different enough that it still won't work. Was there a How-To that you followed saying that this would work?

    Have you checked the output of dmesg for any error messages?

    Please don't 'bump' threads, especially only 30 minutes after you posted a question!

    Run the modinfo command on the module. It wil list the IDs of the supported cards. Is the one you added on the list?

    I've tried what you are doing, before. It doesn't seem to work on the Ralink drivers. I just tried it again, with no luck.

    I don't seem to have a /common/rtusb_dev_id.c file in my driver source, but it may be older (2009_0820_RT2870_Linux_STA_V2.2.0.0). I found the IDs in /os/linux/rt2870sta.mod.c . I added your ID, and compiled. It not only does not show up in modinfo, when I checked the modified file, my edit had disappeared!

    Maybe you could try the open source driver for Ralink. Maybe it has mtured enough to include your card.

    rt2800usb - Linux Wireless

    It is part of the compat-wireless pack, so go to the downloads section and follow the instructions. Also not that it requires firmware, go back to the driver page for that info.
