View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't connect to wireless network with Linksys WUSB100

Hello. I need a little help with a Linksys WUSB100 wireless adapter. I've tried it using the Ubuntu 9.10 live CD (both 32-bit and 64-bit versions) and while the adapter can see wireless networks, it can't connect to them. It asks me for my WPA2 key, but after trying to connect for about 30 seconds it asks me for it again. I've read other threads about this issue but they were kind of confusing.

I just need to know whether the adapter will work and if so, how to get it to connect. I'm so sick of Windows and I'd love to switch to Linux, but I won't be able to if I can't get my adapter to work.

Can anyone help? Thank you.

Edit: I just noticed the sticky about posting wireless tickets. I'm sorry, I don't have time to post it right now, but I will post all of that information when I get back. :)

As in many things in life, it depends. Please run:
lsusbIf the usb.id is 1737:0078, then this is the process you should follow. http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=8591348&postcount=6

If you need help executing this, post back and we'll help. If your usb.id is something different, let us know.

I ran the command and it returned "1737:0070" as the ID. From what I've been able to gather from reading other stuff about this, doesn't this mean that I have the first version of the adapter (with 1737:0078 being the second)?

Yessir! It also means that two drivers are probably loaded and conflicting. Let's do the following terminal commands:
sudo su
echo "blacklist rt2800usb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
exitReboot with your WUSB100 inserted and the ethernet cable detached. Post back with your report, please.

I've been using the live CD to do this the whole time, so I can't restart. Is there a way to do this without restarting?

We can sure try. Remove the device and do:
sudo rmmod rt2870sta
sudo rmmod rt2800usbThen do the commands I listed above and reinsert the device. Run:
iwconfigIf you have a wireless interface, wlan0, perhaps, you are all set.

Alright, I tried the commands. I entered everything correctly, but I still can't get the adapter to connect. :(

Please remove the device. Next do:
sudo su
rmmod rt2870sta
rmmod rt2800usb
echo "blacklist rt2800usb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
exitRe-insert the device.
iwconfigDo you have a wireless interface? Detach the ethernet cable and click the Network Manager icon. Do you see networks? Can you click yours and connect?

If not, attach the ethernet cable, get a connection and post:
dmesg | grep rt2Thanks.

The wireless didn't work; I'm on Ubuntu right now on a wired connection. I ran dmesg and this is what I got.

Let's try a little harder. Please remove the device. Please open a terminal and do:
sudo su
rmmod rt2870sta
rmmod rt2800usb
echo "blacklist rt2800usb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
echo "blacklist rt2x00usb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
echo "blacklist rt2x00lib" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
exitInsert the device and report your result. If you cannot connect, again post:
dmesg | grep rt2
Thanks.

Edit: Well this is embarrassing. I tried those last commands and they didn't work. However, when I logged into my router I found out that I was entering the wrong WPA2 passkey lol. Thanks for all of the help; I really appreciate it.

Just out of curiosity, I'm going to see if the first set of commands would have worked.

Edit 2: It turns out that the first set of commands fixed my problem. Actually, the device connected to the router without doing anything, but for some reason web pages would never load. But the first set of commands definitely fixed that.

Thanks again.
