    Question Trying getting a Encore N150 [ENLWI-N3] to work, lost cause?


    Hi and thanks in advance for any help!

    I have an Encore N150 ENLWI-N3 I'm trying to get working with my Linux Mint 11 OS. I'm a beginner in the land of wireless cards so any help is very appreciated.

    My last card was a Sabrent with the Ralink chipset. I had to buy local for my current card, and the closest possible Linux friendly card I could find is a Encore N150 which also uses a Ralink chipset. Is it possible to make this work?

    Here are my specs:

    Hello there.
    Everything looks good to me. Try these commands and post your results please.
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan2 up
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan2 scan
    Tell us everything you can about your setup, do you use a router, does your access point use WEP or WPA encryption? What's the name of your access point?

    "sudo ifconfig wlan2 up" returned no output. It just went back to prompt.

    "sudo iwlist wlan2 scan" returned:
    Code:
    wlan2    No scan results
    I use a Zyxel PK5000Z modem dsl router. WPA-WPA2 personal encryption.
    Is the name of my access point the same as the SSID? If so it's XXXX.

    Can you post the output of
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i firmware

    Is the access point set to broadcast?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Go here for a list of supported Ralink chip sets and how to get them to work: Drivers - Linux Wireless
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    Everything was working just fine until I had to put in the new adapter card. According to my modem/router configuration:

    Code:
    SSID Broadcast:	Enabled

    I followed the instructions on identifying the right drivers for the device. The ID pair for the card is 1814:3060. With this I found:

    cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/RT2800PCI.html

    and

    cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/RT2X00.html

    If I understand correctly, this is a positive indication of drivers out there which support this device. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to make use of this information. It's a bit beyond my current skills, but I'm willing (and want) to learn.

    Thanks for your help!

    That card does use the rt2800pci driver, which is already installed.
    Do you by any chance have MAC filtering enabled on your router?
