    Question Re: Howto: Ralink RT2860 (m)PCI(e) (RT2760/RT2790/RT2860/RT2890) on Intrepid

    Hello everyone,

    This works perfectly and easily with the latest Linux driver version 2.3.0.0 dated January 29, 2010 from Ralink site. I replaced Netgear WN511T with Airlink101 AWLC6080 PCMCIA wireless adapter to work in my triple-boot laptop.

    I am wondering if I can use it for openSUSE 11.2 on my triple-boot XP Pro/Karmic/openSUSE Toshiba laptop, ie. copying over instead of building and compiling driver from source again, because I don't quite understand the build instruction given in the README file of Ralink's Linux driver file. Specifically, I don't know how to "define the GCC and LD (?) of the target machine, and define the compiler flags CFLAGS(?), modify your need (?)", etc. I already have gcc, cpp and make installed on the Ubuntu and openSUSE parts of my machine.

    I did try ndiswrapper but it doesn't work for the Windows version of the latest Ralink driver (error: invalid driver rt2860.inf).

    Look forward to your suggestions, and thanks in advance.

    Thanks for this guide. It worked instantly first time.

    Thank you for the guide. Are there any required modifications for installation on Karmic 9.10. I will be installing a Sparklan WMIR-215GN w/RT2860 wireless nic into a HPdv5000 laptop. The 2010_01_29_RT2860_Linux_STA_v2.3.0.0 README_STA suggests additional configuration steps not included in this guide. Has anyone tested on Karmic?

    Hi,
    I just installed Ralink's RT2860STA driver on my Ubuntu Karmic pc and wireless works fine. You just need to change the 2 lines that have WPA SUPPLICANT in config.mk from "n" (NO) to "y" (YES) then save the file. Ignore the suggestions in the README file.

    Regrettably, my attempt to install the SparkLan Wmir-215gn wireless N card with the Railink rt2860 chip was a complete failure. i tried installing the card first with the intention of installing the drivers when powered up and the card refused to be recognized. A blue screen of death appeared with a text block explaining that an unsupported wireless network device was installed and further action was halted. remove the device and restart. I installed th eold card and proceeded to install the drivers thinking that would cure it but to no avail. I followed Fass's procedure exactly andthis time failure was so complete I couldn't get it to recognize my old card. Ultimately I reinstalled Ubuntu which enabled my old broadcom card and here I am. Anybody got any ideas on how to get past the "Unsupported Device" screen?

    Just some info:

    this card works with my Dell 8100 laptop SparkLAN WMIR-215GN (chip-set rt2860) you just need to add the /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/RT2860STA.dat file for N speeds, i didn't need to do anything else. The WLAN is wpa2 mixed speed. This card is a mini pci type IIIB, (so check your PC's port type)

    I have another rt2860 on a atom mythfront-end (airlink mini pci-e) with two ext. antennas and get full HD, (only have one G device which is almost always off, so i get no G speed limits). There are two walls and about 15ft of air to the dd-wrt router

    The rt2860 chip-set is a winner in my book, 9.10 kernel includes the drivers

    I just wanted to echo my thanks, as this worked for me in Lucid, even though there were a few errors here and there...

    I'm installing this on my eeepc 1008ha and I get stuck here. when i type the modprobe, I only get "WARNING: all config files need to be conf." etc ****, no creation of ra0device. And iwconfig shows no sign of a ra0.

    Any advice for a linux newbie like me?
