    Issues after installing RT2870 or 3870? driver for Asus N13


    Hi, the ASUS N13 has one of the better chipsets for linux but I just cant find it in my network manager. I have installed the linux driver (not sure if rt2870 or 3870, whatever is available from the website) using the download from the website. I am running Mint 9. I see the device detected
    'lsusb' output showing

    Bus 007 Device 002: ID 0b05:17ab ASUSTek Computer, Inc. USB-N13 802.11n Network Adapter (rev. B1) [Realtek RTL8192CU].

    'iwconfig' output is

    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    Does anyone know how to make this device work?? It would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    Install firmware using distro pkg mgr if possible, reboot (init 6), install driver

    Thanks for helping but the firmware and driver are upto date as far as I know. I am thinking it is a configuration issue at this point.

    You might want to try installing the correct driver. Often that helps. This is a Realtek device, not a Ralink device:

    EDIT: I downloaded the driver source and checked it, your USB wireless is listed as being supported.
