    [SOLVED] Can't get wireless card to work


    The whole sad story is here:
    [ubuntu] Can't compile drivers - EW-7711In pci wireless card - Page 7 - Ubuntu Forums starting at Post 63.
    Can anyone help, please?
    Also, is it possible to go back from Ubuntu 10.10 to 10.04?
    I have the disc, the temptation being to be able to use the Edimax "How to"
    Any suggestions will be most welcomeHappy

    EDIT: I suspect it's a driver issue, but it still seems to be a big muddle.

    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    I'm sorry but at 77 y.o.a I find that much too complicated and confusing with what I've already been advised to do.
    Thanks for your time and interest, anyway.

    You should be able to use the "How to install Edimax EW-7711xxx (3070) on Linux Ubuntu (9.10 & 10.4)" instructions you were working from, but download the latest driver direct from the ralink site. It should be the RT8070/RT3070/RT3370 USB download, I believe.

    Anywhere it references the original name, you'll want to use the updated file name, 2011_0107_RT3070_RT3370_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.1_DPO.tar .bz2

    So changing to the directory for example would be
    Code:
    cd ~/Desktop/011_0107_RT3070_RT3370_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.1_DPO

    I'm happy to report the problem has now been solved.
    It was a conflict of drivers,(caused by my own inexperience.
    See the link in my OP for the full story.
