I am a total newb with linux and ubuntu. It was recommended for my older Compaq desktop with a Celeron processor and 256mb of ram. I got the windows driver installer installed, but it was looking for a inf file and the driver I have on the cd is an executable file for an installer, so it wouldn't work. The cd also has a linux driver, but I do not know how to use terminal to install it. I'm at my wits end. I feel pretty stupid, because I know nothing about linux. Can someone help a new guy out? I do apologize if this post is in the wrong place or in the wrong format.

Thanks,

Woody

Forgot to say that this is a wirless usb dongle I'm trying to install.

I know nothing about linux.All of us, at one time, even me and Linus Torvalds, knew nothing about Linux. No worries.

As fun as compiling a driver from an old, stale tar.gz might be, let's see if there isn't an easier way. Please insert your device and open Applications > Accessories > Terminal and do:
lsusbPost the resultant output and we'll see what needs to be done.

This is supposed to work with the driver rt2800usb, although I am not sure it's the case in Ubuntu 10.04. Find out with:
modinfo rt2800usb | grep 3370If it returns your usb.id like this, then 10.04 claims it.
modinfo rt2800usb | grep 3370
alias: usb:v148Fp3370d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*Let's load it and see what happens:
sudo modprobe rt2800usb
iwconfigIs a wireless interface created, typically wlan0? Please post:
dmesg | grep -i rt2The pipe symbol | is on the right side of my US keyboard along with \.

Do you have wired ethernet access, even temporarily, if we need to download things? What is the name of the Linux driver on the disk? Depending on these answers, we will decide how to proceed.

chili, i borrowed a wireless pci card and have internet access with it now. I am installing ubuntu 10.10 on another hard drive right now. I read so many fixes and have probably put so many codes in the other one that it's probably as lost as I am. Wish I had a system restore button. lol

What is the name of the Linux driver file on the CD? We need to know if it's old and stale or if it can probably be used. Also, please post:

Well, I believe we can install that just fine. Drag and drop it from the CD to your desktop. Then right click it and select 'Extract here.' Now double-click the 2010etc. folder it creates to open it and go to os/linux/ and open the file config.mk with the text editor. Change 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y'. They are currently '=n.' Proofread, save and close the text editor.

Open a terminal and type:
cd Desktop/2010Press Tab; the remainder of the long title will automagically fill in. Now do:
sudo su
make
make install
modprobe rt3370sta
exitThere may be a few warnings, but if there is an error, note it and post back.

I am quite familiar with the driver. I have read the READMEsta many times. However, if there is some other file you think might help, I'd be glad to read it.

What exactly do you meaan when you say you can't install it? What step made an error? Let's do a full diagnostic. We'll create a text file, zip it up and you can post it so my colleagues and I can examine it. Please reboot and do:
sudo modprobe rt3070sta > wood.txt
dmesg >> wood.txt
lsmod >> wood.txt
cat /etc/modules >> wood.txt
cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf >> wood.txt
modinfo rt3070sta >> wood.txt
zip wood.zip wood.txtIn your user directory, you will find a zip file wood.zip. Attach it to your reply. Thanks.

when I say it doesn't install, I mean that the usb adapter doesn't work. Here is the zip file. Thanks.

(The private chili, under his breath, sayeth: "Someone ought to slap the manufacturer of this poor guy's device. The driver doesn't even support the device! Now I have to rewrite it.")

Th public chili sayeth:
Hey, Woodrow! Let's have some fun. Open the file you extracted and go to common and open rtusb_dev_id.c with a text editor. We are going to add one line in exactly the correct place without changing or disturbing anything else. Look for the section I've quoted and add the part I've highlighted. Spacing, braces, etc. must be perfect.
#endif // RT3070 //
#ifdef RT3370
{USB_DEVICE(0x148F,0x3370)}, /* Ralink 3370 */
{USB_DEVICE(0x0DF6,0x0050)}, /* Sitecom 3370 */
#endif // RT3370 //
{ }/* Terminating entry */
};Proofread three or four times carefully. Save and close the text editor. Now open a terminal. Assuming you have downloaded the file to your desktop, do:
cd Desktop/2010 <--Press Tab
sudo su
make clean
make
make install
rmmod -f rt3070sta
modprobe rt3070sta
exitNow is it working?

If you encounter any difficulty or problem, stop and post back.

Here is what is in that file. I may be dumb, but I don't see the line in there that is under the line that you highlighted.

okay, still not working. Just a thought. In the folder there is a file RT2070STA.dat that you had me copy as RT3070STA.dat. Should I copy that as RT3370.dat?

Discard the older version you have on your desktop; both the .tar.gz and the folder. Be careful not to discard the one you just downloaded. Please do:
cd Desktop
tar xvf 2010*A folder will appear. Go to os/linux/ and open the file config.mk with the text editor. Change 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y'. They are currently '=n.' Proofread, save and close the text editor. Now do:
cd Desktop/2010 <--Press Tab
sudo su
make
make install
modprobe rt3370sta
exitI believe, this time, the module is now rt3370sta. Note any errors and post back your result.

One more question. My other hard drive has xubuntu and I tried to load the other driver to it. Can I follow these instructions to load the driver to it?

chili555
January 22nd, 2011, 04:02 AM
Woo hoo indeed! Thanks for being patient and persistent. You can follow the same instructions. Post back if it doesn't go well.

When a new kernel image is installed by Update Manager, you'll need to build the module for the newer kernel with:
sudo su
make clean
make
make install
modprobe rt3370sta
exitEventually, a native driver will claim the device and no rebuild will be required.

Well, everything install in xubuntu and it tries to connect, but it keeps asking for the network password. At least the driver is working. Do I have to go into that common file and add the line you posted? I'll try again tomorrow.

Never mind. That line is already there.

woodrow667
January 23rd, 2011, 04:03 AM
Update: After restarting ubuntu, the usb wireless adapter will not connect to the network. It tries and then asks for the password over and over. Don't know what else to do now.

chili555 could you please help me too.

I am also a total newbie, running Ubuntu 10.10 (upgraded). I have been trying to get my TP-Link wn321g ver4 working for more than a week, but with no success. I followed all sorts of directions that I found in the forums, and all sorts of drivers. Then I found this:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1285828&page=13

and I followed the directions on top by pesarak, but it's just not working for me.

All was going well until I tried "make install". I then got this:

make -C /home/boss/2009_0525_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.1.0/os/linux -f Makefile.6 install

I did the manual file copying, but when I got to:
sudo cp ./rtk3070sta.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/staging/rt3070/

I got:
cp: cannot stat `./rtk3070sta.ko': No such file or directory

When I tried to start the module I got:
FATAL: Module rt3070sta not found

I'd really appreciate any help you could give me.

Go to os/linux/ and open the file config.mk with the text editor. Change 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y'. They are currently '=n.' Proofread, save and close the text editor.Yes, sir; before you run 'make.' If you did not, please do:

update: This is crazy. I'm on the xubuntu hard drive now and was hooked up to the wired network and surfing. All of a sudden, my wireless connected on its own and has been working for a few hours now. I'm scared to shut it down now, but I will have to so I can move it out to my man cave. Wish me luck! Thanks again.

Hi:

I'm trying to connect one of those rt2070 usb antennas.
I read this thread and another one (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1285828) and i don't know how far I go until now.
And i'm just a begginer using ubuntu.
The distro i'm using is 10.04 lucid.
And i have instaled the 'headers' for use make


I used this drivers (RT8070/RT3070/RT3370/RT5370/RT5372 USB,05/11/2011,2.5.0.2).
and I added the line {USB_DEVICE(0x148F,0x2070)}, /* Ralink 2070L */ , in rtusb_dev_id.c
I think i miss the change the no for yes in WPA_SUPPLICANT (i understand it afther i use make and make install)

I get this on the console:

I'm not sure if i installed the antenna or not.
The wlan0 is the antenna?
I writed the essid name in the configuration file in /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA

The internet conection that i have is a static one, if the things are working i only need to configure it?
Where i put the stati ip, gateway, etc., in wlan0 with iwconfig?

I'm not sure if i installed the antenna or not.I think the module rt2870sta that's already built in to the kernel is driving your device. Let's check. Please run and post:

And i already have instaled and working an atheros wirelss card. But i need one external antenna to connect where i am. So i can't use the atheros wifi card (it cames with the acer notebook that i use) and i have to buy the usb antenna.

Do you think that wlan0 is the wireless interface for the usb ralink antenna?

Do you think that wlan0 is the wireless interface for the usb ralink antenna?No, I'm quite sure it's the Atheros.

Let's try to repair the 2070 install. Go back to config.mk and make the changes here:
** Build for being controlled by NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant wext functions
Please set 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y'.Now open a terminal and navigate to the directory that was created when you extracted the bz2; for example:
cd Downloads/2011_0407_RT3070_RT3370_RT5370_RT5372_Linux_STA_V2 .5.0.2_DPO
sudo su
make clean
make install
modprobe rt5370sta
exitNote any errors and post them here. Warnings are OK.
when i use sudo modprobe rt3070sta first, the lsmod first line changes:rt3070sta is not your driver. Please don't modprobe random, spurious stuff; it just confuses the issue.

I have one doubt.
The antenna that i'm talking is an external antenna that cames with a 2 meter iron bar to place outside, with a usb cable to connect to the pc. And i undestand that there are ralink usb wireless cards (the usual pendrive alike ones).
The driver that we're talkink is the right one, i ask you because i don't want that you loose your time, or bother you.

chili555
May 14th, 2011, 10:46 PM
The driver that we're talkink is the right one,You mean rt3070sta? I don't think so; you proved it:
$ modinfo rt3070sta | grep 2070
ERROR: modinfo: could not find module rt3070staIt didn't recognize your device.

The package you downloaded and are trying to compile creates a driver rt5370sta:
install -d /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
install -m 644 -c rt5370sta.ko /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
/sbin/depmod -a 2.6.38-8-generic
Yes? No??

I thougt that 3070 were compatible, so that's the reason i was trying that driver.
I'm not so sure now.
It seems, for the way that windows recognized the device, that is 2870.

The answer to your question, i guess, is No.

Sorry for bother you.

I'm going to make sure first what i have (is difficult, because the wifi card is sealed inside the antenna) and i only have the windows information (802.11 USB Wireless LAN card, and USB\VID_148F&PID_2070) from the device manager and a product specification that only says 2070.


Thanks for your time and sorry again to bother you.

It seems that the driver is the right one. And is the same driver for a lot of different products.

The antenna i'm trying to configure is this one: http://www.aquario.com.br/?action=produto&id=5
And the drivers availables to download from the page needed a patch to compile with tha actual linux kernel (errors with make and fail on make install). There's a patch to solve that.

I'm going to try with the same drivers from before, as you say.

Thanks for your help.

Hi again:

With the info in the last post it works.
I made teh uninstall part that you told me in your last post and the followed the thread instructions, and it worked.
Ubuntu managed the antenna and i used the network manager to do the setting part of the fix connection.

Thanks a lot.

Can you explain to me what we do to make this thing works, please, in simple words, like if i'm a 5 years old child :)
Am I using no propietary drivers for the antenna and using some 'code' that cames with ubuntu?

Thanks a lot again Chili.

Your device is relatively new. It's a Ralink rt2870 chipset.

The way that drivers and hardware recognize each other is the usb.id or pci.id that's hard-coded into the hardware; in your case 148f:2070.
get this on the console:
claudio@otromascongnu:~$ lsusb
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0458:003a KYE Systems Corp. (Mouse Systems)
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 064e:a101 Suyin Corp. Acer CrystalEye Webcam
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 148f:2070 Ralink Technology, Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Let's look at the module information for rt2870sta:
modinfo rt2870sta
filename: /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic/kernel/drivers/staging/rt2870/rt2870sta.ko
version: 2.1.0.0

alias: usb:v148Fp2070d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*
alias: usb:v0789p0166d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*
etc., etc.The alias lines are usb.ids that this driver recognizes and drives. In your case, since you are running an older kernel version, your usb.id is not listed. I am running the latest version and your usb.id is listed, as you see. Therefor, we know the driver rt2870sta will effectively drive your hardware.

What we did is temporarily add your usb.id to the alias list for your earlier version of rt2870sta. That tells the driver to drive the hardware. The proof that our method is sound is that your wireless device works as expected.

As we used to say when I was a kid, about 209 years ago, is that as clear as mud?
Am I using no propietary drivers for the antenna and using some 'code' that cames with ubuntu?That's correct.

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to find drivers for my WUSB54GC V3 RT2070L Usb stick, and I've been trying to find working drivers that compile but haven't found any that actually work.

I've spent a few hours already downloading, and compiling drivers and I can't seem to find any that actually works.

# modinfo rt2800usb | grep 2070

Please check:
modinfo rt2870sta | grep 0077
modinfo rt2800usb | grep 0077I don't know anything about Wheezy, but in Ubuntu rt2870sta and rt2800usb both claim your device and conflict. All it takes to get things right is to blacklist rt2800usb and reboot. Post back if you'd like specifics.
