    Exclamation Ralink RT2870STA Wireless driver compilation issues

    Hi,

    I am having trouble compiling my wireless driver for my Edimax EW-7718Un wireless USB modem.

    My errors are here: http://pastebin.com/ZSRAksK9
    I am following this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=6600309

    Stuck at 6.
    I can copy RT2870STA.dat however the rt2870sta.ko file is not created.

    Following the advice of this tutorial: http://www.matthartley.com/rt2870-li...-ubuntu-10-04/
    I tried make then make install however that also told me the file did not exist.

    This is all double dutch to me!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Shane T

    I believe this driver has been in the linux kernel since 2.6.29

    eg

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Rt2870

    and

    http://wiki.debian.org/rt2870sta

    if you type in the command

    lsmod
    if you copy and paste back what you get

    this thread

    suggests data you could post to the forum to seek more help

    pdc, My device does connect and after less than 30 seconds disconnects again. I know this is to do with ubuntu as it works fine on Debian (after a kernel upgrade and installing firmware-ralink), and in ubuntu 11.10 it works fine, its in 10.10 it doesnt work. I switched back as I hate unity

    I'm having the same issue as shanept with my RT2870 chipset based adapter. But that link in that post that shanept put up does not work anymore. Can someone tell me where I can find the modified drivers for this chipset.
