    Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI Ralink 3060 chip driver instructions

    This is the procedure I used to install the driver for my new Rosewill Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI 2.2 Wireless Adapter. It uses the Ralink 3060 chip. I'm using Lucid 10.04 and WICD as my network manager.(I have tested this driver and method on both 10.10 & currently 11.04 with success) I downloaded the drivers from Ralinks site
    http://www.ralinktech.com/license_us...V3TVRJeE53PT1D

    Make sure you have installed gcc build-essential
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gcc build-essential
    I then followed the instuctions in the README file.
    Navigate to downloaded_driver_folder/os/linux and open config.mk in a text editor.
    Find and set so that it indicates ( y ) at the end of this text string
    Code:
    HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y
    and also set
    Code:
    HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y
    Next, open a terminal in the driver folder and type
    Code:
    sudo make
    then
    Code:
    sudo make install

    Now you'll need to load the driver
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt3562sta
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig ra0 inet up

    After I successfully connected I added the driver to /etc/modules so it it would load at startup. This is a copy of mine

    Code:
     # /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
    #
    # This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
    # at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
    
    loop
    lp
    rt3562sta.ko
    Edit complete save file and reboot to test. I hope this helps anyone using Raklink 3060/3062/3562 chipset. Mine connects with a strong consistent signal.

    Looks as if an addition is necessary to complete the driver install. The need to blacklist a default driver to enable the new driver.
    From terminal
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add this to the end of that file
    Code:
    blacklist rt2800pci

    I used this driver in 10.04 and it worked fine.
    But now I use 10.10, and although the driver is running - both Wicd and Network Manager can't find any networks.

    I haven't tested under 10.10 yet. What have you done so far to get the device working ?

    No what have you done to get your Ralink device working ?
    How about we try some terminal commands to see what comes up.
    Code:
    lspci -v | less
    Code:
    iwconfig
    If you show a network in the last command run this.
    Code:
    iwlist scanning
    Post any results back here please

    Re: Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI Ralink 3060 chip driver instructions

    Looks as if you just have to tell your computer to use the device. In terminal
    Code:
    ifdown wlan1
    Code:
    ifup wlan2
    Then open wicd and under preference change your wireless adapter to wlan2

    Ignoring unknown interface wlan1=wlan1.
    and the same result with wlan2.
