    Ralink RT3562 Oneiric 11.10 driver install guide

    For anybody looking to install drivers for Ralink Device 3062, I've finally managed to get it working so I thought I'd share.
    [Link to source updated; thanks Algorith]

    1. Check your wireless controller hardware

    lspci | grep Network
    You should get the following output
    Network controller: Ralink corp. Device 3062
    If so, you will need to install Ralink driver 3562.

    2. Download the driver source from the Ralink website

    3. Extract the folder (DPO_RT3562_3592_3062_LinuxSTA_V2.4.1.1_20101217) to your home directory.

    4. Open DPO_RT.../os/linux/

    5. Change line 12 to read HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y
    Change line 15 to read HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y

    6. Open a terminal
    cd DPO_RT3562_3592_3062_LinuxSTA_V2.4.1.1_20101217
    sudo make
    8. Install the driver. (Thanks Algorith )
    sudo make install
    9. Next you need to blacklist the conflicting wireless drivers
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add the following lines
    #Wireless drivers conflicting with rt3562sta
    blacklist rt2800pci
    blacklist rt2x00pci

    10. Tell linux to load the correct module on boot
    sudo gedit /etc/modules
    Append the following line

    11. Update the changes
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    12. Restart your system. You should see a list of available networks in the network manager next time it boots.

    If anyone has any problems with this please let me know and I'll try to help!
