    linksys wusb100 problems

    I just purchased a linksys wusb100 wireless adapter for my computer. I'm running Ubuntu 9.04. I've racked my brain and my search engine for a week and still have no connectivity for my ubuntu installation. I've installed ndiswrapper and here are the results from some of my inquiries.

    brett@Brett:~$ ndiswrapper -l

    >brett@Brett:~$ ndiswrapper -l

    remove ndiswrapper and compile your own rt2870/rt3070 driver

    download the rt3070 from ralink:
    http://www.ralinktech.com.tw/data/dr...A_v2.1.1.0.bz2

    tar xvjf 2009_0525_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.1.0.bz2

    cd 2009_0525_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.1.0

    vi os/linux/usb_main_dev.c
    - change: USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0070)
    to: USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0078)

    modify os/linux/config.mk as needed (see README_STA_usb)

    * fix common/rtmp_init.c:
    find reference to os_alloc_mem and fix (PUTCHAR) to (PUTCHAR *)

    make

    make install

    cd os/linux
    insmod rt3070sta.ko

    ifconfig ra0 up

    show available networks:
    iwlist scan

    -- for some basic settings to connect to an unprotected network:
    iwpriv ra0 set NetworkType=Infra
    iwpriv ra0 set AuthMode=OPEN
    iwpriv ra0 set EncrypType=NONE
    iwpriv ra0 set SSID="dummy"
    iwpriv ra0 set Channel=1

    to see if the settings above *stuck*:
    iwconfig ra0

    then, to get a dhcp address:
    /sbin/dhclient ra0

    Re: linksys wusb100 problems

    in my haste to get you something to work with, I forgot two steps:


    1) either modify source to use the correct file or
    ln -s /etc/Wireless/RT3070STA /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA

    2) out of the common directory, copy the rt2870.bin to the above directory

    Awesome!!! Good excellent instructions... I've been attempting to get my WUSB100 Version 2 Linksys adaptor to operate on a dell Latitude laptop for 2 weeks now... The above instructions provided by Claudiac are the first ones to actually work.. GREAT WORK!!! And thanks for posting such a complete procedure. I for one would call this excellent HOW TO Material. Thanks again..

    Talking Re: linksys wusb100 problems

    P.S. As an additional side note...

    I modified

    os/linux/usb_main_dev.c

    to include the setups for both WUSB100 Version 1 and 2 Adapters (I have both versions, and was troubleshooting version 2 for a customer as Version 1 was already working properly with ndiswrapper) I added...

    {USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0070)}, /* Linksys-WUSB100-V1 */
    {USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0078)}, /* Linksys-WUSB100-V2 */

    re-compiled and now I've discovered that I can interchangeably use one or the other adapter. Even tested without re-booting (removing one, and re-inserting the other) and both adapters work perfectly with the one driver.

    Thanks again Claudiac for an awesome job and a major life saving heheh..

    Re: linksys wusb100 problems

    Hello,
    a little Trick to add the ID 1737:0078 for the WUSB100v2 to the System and simply use the rt2870sta V1.4.0.0. that comes with the system if the new driver v2.3.0.0 or the rt3070 from Ralink don't work properly.

    First remove the new compiled driver if necessary:
    Code:
    cd
    cd RT2870_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0
    sudo make uninstall
    If you previously did not manually compile the driver from Ralink start here.

    Add the ID:
    Code:
    echo 'install rt2870sta modprobe --ignore-install rt2870sta ; /bin/echo "1737 0078" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2870/new_id' | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rt2870sta.conf
    sudo modprobe -rf rt2870sta
    sudo modprobe rt2870sta
    dmesg | egrep 'rt28|usb|Phy'
    iwconfig
    The solution works? Ok, load the driver at startup
    Code:
    echo rt2870sta | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    alternativ automatic driver load when the stick was plugged in:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/10-wusb100.rules
    contents:
    Code:
    # UDEV-Rule for wusb-100v2 ID 1737:0078
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="1737", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0078", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe rt2870sta"
    make it ready to work
    Code:
    sudo service udev reload
    .. or restart
