    Wireless USB not working


    Hi, can somebody help me please? I have installed Linux Mint 9. I want to use a Sitecom WL-344 USB Adapter.
    I can see my Network. If I click to connect, the system prompt me for a network password. I'm sure the password is correct. But the prompt returns again and again.

    I have attached a some logging file's.

    Hope somebody can help me.

    Thanks,
    Necati

    Your device is called wlan0, and it appears to be working. Can you open the network tool and create a new wireless connection?

    Does this give any errors?
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    The last should return available wireless networks.

    Hi Mike,

    I have installed Mint 9 over again. I have run your WirelessSetup script. Please see attached the results. Also attached the output from dmesg command.

    Hope you can help me with this.

    Thanks,

    Try the commands posted by reed9, unless you've changed hardware, everything should still be good.
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

    Hi Mike,
    When I give the first command I get the following error:
    Wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

    I have not changed the hardware.

    after giving the DMESG command I can see the following error: you can see that also in the post I did before:

    phy0 --> rt2800usb_init_eeprom: Error - Invalid RT chipset detected.
    phy0 --> rt2x00lib_probe_dev: Error - Failed to allocate device.

    Hope you can help me with this.
