    Question Ralink RT5390 WPA2 Enterprise connection issues

    Hi there,

    I have a HP G62 with a Ralink 5390 wifi card. However i got few issues.

    First one is that i cannot connect to my eduroam network at my school. Using the settings i get provided by eduroam NetworkManager just tries to connect and then de-auths me with the reason local choice 3. And then asks for password again and it keeps doing that round and round.

    When it asks me about a certificate i just press ignore since I know that their network does not need it. However I tried their open un-encrypted network and i got issues connecting to it too with the same error. Retries 3 times then fails, times out and then the local choice 3 error.

    I also got power issues with the card and running with power off setting in iwconfig. It also cannot connect to a network if it fails couple of times and i need to enable/disable with rfkill/button

    Tried talking with the IT-Techs at the University but they have no idea why my card does what it does and im guesing this is a driver issue or a NetworkManager bug.

    Im running latest Ubuntu 12.10, had this issue under Arch Linux aswell if that helps you something.


    If you have any idea what i can do to fix this issue or atleast workaround it please tell. I also tried TP LINK nano usb wifi, it can connect to the open network at the school but only if i insert it after booting up and it will do it only once, any other tries it enters the endless loop of connecting/disconnected thing.

    Best Regards

    Have you tried WiCD after uninstalling Network Manager? That has worked for some people though I don't know specifically about the RT5390. Will the RT5390 connect to an unsecured network? Another thought though not optimum would be a USB adapter known to work.
