    Installing appropriate driver for D-Link Dwa-140 RevB

    I attempted to install the appropriate driver for my card by trying the following tutorial on installing the rt2870 driver, here.


    lusb

    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist rt2800usb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit
    Reboot and tell us how it's working.

    Hi,

    which Ubuntu version do you use? From 10.4.3 and on this chipset is no longer supported with the rt2870sta (if it doesnt work) but with rt2800usb:

    Code:
    phy1 -> rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Current firmware does not support detected chipset
    This firmware can be installed from "linux-firmware" from the Natty version and on:

    http://de.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...e_1.52_all.deb

    Installation by double clicking. In this case change the blacklist entry from rt2800usb to rt2870sta

    Re: Installing appropriate driver for D-Link Dwa-140 RevB

    Oh, sorry. I was also confused by this Wiki article:

    http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/WLAN/Kart...ht=07d1%3A3c0a

    Alternatively it reads that the rt2800usb with new firmware files can be used. The article also links to this installation procedure:

    http://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/d-.../#post-2388926

    So there are 3 possible ways. Maybe the rt2870sta just needs new firmware files?!

    The reports of successful rt2800usb connections are few and far between. I think the landscape is about to change with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0. I hear that rt2870sta will be retired.

    In most cases, rt2870sta and rt2800usb conflict and one needs to be blacklisted. I've had the best luck with rt2870sta remaining and rt2800usb banished. We'll know when Burky returns.
