    The rt2800usb drive, which is loading, ought to be correct. But I've seen a lot of references to trouble with this wireless device and these drivers. The possible solutions aren't particularly easy. Here is a guide (and long thread) from the Ubuntu forums on it.

    [SOLVED] Karmic RT2870 Driver Tutorial - Ubuntu Forums

    The information is applicable to Mandriva as well, but some commands or packages will be different.

    I don't think Mandriva uses sudo, so whenever 'sudo' is used in the guide, just think run as root. You can log in as root from the terminal by typing su.

    Or you can run a particular command as root with
    Code:
    su -c 'command'
    If you choose to try and compile a driver, the package build-essential is Debian/Ubuntu specific. Mandriva has something similar, but I don't know what they call it.

    Gedit can be replaced with kate or kwrite if you're using KDE, or any other text editor of your choice.

    I think that should pretty much cover the differences. Oh, with some commands such as ifconfig, if you get a command not found, preface it with /sbin/ as so
    Code:
    /sbin/ifconfig

    Hello, and welcome to Linux Forums!

    Even though it doesn't seem to indicate it, I believe that you need to add firmware. According to this website, you should download the RT2870USB(RT2870/RT2770) firmware package from Ralink.

    Ralink corp.

    Open a terminal and cd (change directory) to where you saved the zipped file. Then unzip the file.
    Code:
    unzip RT2870_Firmware_V8.zip
    Now cd to the unzipped folder and then copy the rt2870.bin file to the /lib/firmware folder. You will need root permissions to do this.
    Code:
    cd RT2870_Firmware_V8
    Code:
    su <enter>
    Password:<enter root password>
    Code:
    cp rt2870.bin /lib/firmware
    Then reboot, and see if the wireless will work.

    This is a very new driver, and may be buggy. There is a driver released by Ralink that may be better. It would be found on the same web site that the firmware was downloaded from. If you need to use that driver, we will have to help you install it.

    I went In the rakink site and downloaded the firmware rt2870usb and extracted and copied the rt2870.bin to the /lib/firmware
    went in the mcc to instal the adapter choose rakink 11n adapter and it gibes me a message saying can't find the network interface for the selected adapter, (use controler rt2800usb)

    should I try and find this firmware package?

    It sounds like you just installed the firmware, so I don't know what other firmware your are referring to.

    I didn't have to set up my wireless in Mandriva, it just worked out-of-the-box. But it is an Atheros wireless. When you go into the network/wireless configuration section, what is listed?

    You didn't answer my question on what the MCC shows in this section:
    Network & Internet>Set up a new network interface>Wireless (Wi-Fi)

    It just may be that this driver is buggy, as I said. It is also possible that the info you read is old, and the problem you read about has already been fixed.

    Your best bet may be using the proprietary Ralink driver. I am unsure on exactly how to do that in Manadriva, so I will need to look into it.

    There may be a way to get the internal wireless card to work, in Linux anyway. There is a contact on the card designated to interface with an On/Off switch. Covering that contact with a thin piece of tape may then allow it to function. This means temporarily removing the card from the laptop to do this.

    What type of card is it? is it Mini-PCI or Mini-PCI-Express?

    The pin that you need to cover is called W_DISABLE. I know which pin that is on a Mini-PCI-express card, but unsure of the older Mini-PCI card. I'll advise you further on this if you are interested.

    EDIT: I found a picture of a mini-PCIe card with pin #20 covered with black tape. It is two pins to the left of the "notch". It is on the underside of the card.

    More EDIT: I found some info that a hardware switch may use pin #7, so that would be the pin to cover. Some experimentation may be required by you.

    Here's a picture of the pin to cover in a regular MiniPCI card. It is incorrectly listed as pin #7, when it is actually pin #13. You have to count the pins on the backside too!

    If you have never opened your laptop to add RAM memory or change the hard drive (or just to take a look), then this method may be beyond your capabilities. Most Linux users tend to be tinkerers or hackers, and this would not be a big deal for them.
