I downloaded and installed Ubuntu 10.10, but System->About Ubuntu says I have 11.04, released (note the past tense) in April of 2011! I just checked the downloaded ISO and at least the file name reports 10.10. Whatever my version is, 126.96.36.199 built and installed fine.
Anyhow -- If I am to be successful in yet another conversion to Linux, This laptop needs WiFi.
EDIT : I just noticed the Title of this thread states "64bit" and I installed 32bit on the comp in question btw... Usually 32bit is less of a pain than that of 64bit I would imagine so yeah....

I downloaded the drivers from RaLink and installed them as described. When I activate the wireless card (F12 on my Compaq CQ56) the card comes on and the network connections are shown. However out of three routers, I can only connect to one. I have tried with and without WEP security, and all of the settings SEEM the same on the different routers. When trying to connect to two of the three routers, it just sits there trying, but never connects...
Can someone help with this problem? Any ideas?
I have the G62x too.

I'm having problems with version 188.8.131.52. It compiles without errors. I followed the steps as outlined in the first post.
NetworkManager shows all of the access points available. When I select mine, it prompts for the key... After I give it my password, it just never connects. It keeps trying but never connects.
dmesg reports this (constantly):

I would appreciate any advice and direction on this.
Does anybody have the older driver source? Maybe there is a problem with 184.108.40.206?
Hey everyone I have a hp dm1z series laptop and lspci tells me I have a 539f instead of 5390. Official specs tell me it has a 5390.
I followed the OP's instructions from beginning to end but here is the problem.
It can scan and look for network SSID's but the moment I enter the WPA2 password to try and connect, I see the network icon moving and then it hard crashes.
Can't move mouse and no keyboard commands work.
Does anyone else with a hp dm1z have this problem , or anyone else have any insight?
