Hello,

I'm trying to connect to my wireless connection using my D-Link DWA-125 (N 150) Wireless USB Adapter. So far I was able to download, compile and install the driver provided by RALINK. The current situation is:


$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

ra0 Ralink STA ESSID:"11n-AP" Nickname:"RT2870STA"
Mode:Auto Frequency=2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate:1 Mb/s
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Link Quality=10/100 Signal level:0 dBm Noise level:0 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
I assume that I'm using the correct driver, right?:

I'm trying to up the ra0 interface and then do a scan, but I cannot see any networks:

$ sudo iwlist scan
lo Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.

ra0 No scan resultsI also tried to "down" the eth0, again no list scan result. I even tried from the Network Manager to connect to a hidden network (even though it is not hidden, e.g. I can see my network when I click on the Network Manager applet running on another laptop, it lists my network among available networks and I can easily connect) but without success. The point is this: I cannot see any wireless networks when I click on the NM applet, I only see Wired Network Auto eth0 and then Wireless networks disconnected and no list of networks :sad:

Here's some probably relevant output from $ sudo cat /var/log/syslog | grep -i network:

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 with latest updates and:


$ uname -a
Linux yusuf-desktop 2.6.35-22-generic #34-Ubuntu SMP Sun Oct 10 09:24:00 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
Also the led light on my adapter is flashing constantly (I take this as a sign that is somehow active because before I installed the driver correctly it was not flashing).

I also copied RT2870STA.dat to /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/ and did not change it, so it is as below:

you need to change SSID=11n-AP to your wireless ssid value, also modify

AuthMode=OPEN
EncrypType=NONE

If you are using WPA2 please set

AuthMode=WPA2PSK
EncrypType=AES

If you are using WPA

Please set

AuthMode=WPAPSK
EncrypType=TKIP

Hope above will help.

Hi. As a 65yr nube I wish to say a big THANKS for providing this info. I have been trying endlessly to remedy non connect issues with my D-Link DWA125n Vs a2 Dongle without permanent success until now. I changed the SSIP entry to my WAP ID and the WPA2PSK and TKIP entries as suggested and immediate success.:smile:
