I'm trying to setup my WUSB54GC USB wireless on Ubuntu 9.04.

I followed the brilliant guidance of radixor (see thread http://ubuntuforums.org/newthread.php?do=newthread&f=336), and most of the steps seem to work well however when I compile and install the driver it doesn't seem to take the updated device setting. I'm lost and would appreciate any help.

I've downloaded and installed the drivers per the thread above, installed the module, however when i run 'modinfo rt2870sta | grep 1737' it's not there. Not sure what I'm missing.

I read through the forum and the sticky, I've gone through the make files and not seeing the problem.



Maybe this helps?
root@desktop-lnx:/home/user1/wlan# modinfo rt2870sta | grep 1737
root@desktop-lnx:/home/user1/wlan# cat /etc/modules
# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.

Any tips or links to documentation I can read to research this? Dead in the water at this point.
