    [SOLVED] Yet another WUSB600N problem

    hi guys, sorry for yet another n00b thread on the infamous wusb600n, i have tried to follow other threads instructions but i get lost, novice here

    so i have downloaded the RT3572 driver from railink and put it in my home folder
    executed the following then:
    Code:
    bunzip2 2009_1222_RT3572_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0.tar.bz2
    Code:
    tar -xvf 2009_1222_RT3572_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0.tar
    no problems here

    I have modified the 2 files as instructed:
    4) add the device and vendor id "{USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0079)}" between the "#ifdef RT35xx" and "#endif // RT35xx //" in the file "common/rtusb_dev_id.c"
    5) modify the "os/linux/config.mk" like I described in my previous message
    no problems here

    next step according to all instructions :
    sudo make and
    sudo make install, trips me up, i get "no targets specified and no makefile found"

    probably a basic mistake somewhere here, but my knowledge of the command line is zilch

    thanks in advance

    Re: Yet another WUSB600N problem

    Are you in the same directory as the Makefile? After you extracted the tar.bz2, and it created a directory, did you change directories to that folder?
    Code:
    cd 2009_1222_RT3572_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0
    And if you list the contents of the directory:
    Code:
    ls
    Do you see Makefile as one of the items? If so, please continue with sudo make, etc.

    Re: Yet another WUSB600N problem

    By the way, when you run:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Is the usb.id of your device actually (1737:0079)?
    add the device and vendor id "{USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0079)}"
    I have seen (1737:0071) for this device, but not 0079.

    Please check before you go to a lot of trouble for a less than satisfactory result. Moreover, if there is another device out there, we wireless geeks would be interested to know.

    Re: Yet another WUSB600N problem

    So you verified the usb.id? If you have (1737:0071), then your solution might be here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1420984

    Re: Yet another WUSB600N problem

    It verifies that both rt2800usb and rt2870sta are loading. The only thing worse than no driver is two conflicting drivers fighting each other. Even better, for you, it means you don't have to compile a driver, the correct driver is already there!

    Let's try to fix it:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add three lines:
    Code:
    blacklist rt2800usb
    blacklist rt2x00usb
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    Proofread carefully, save and close gedit.

    Reboot. Is your wireless working?

    Re: Yet another WUSB600N problem

    Hey, I still cannot seem to get this damned adaptor working!

    I too have been through all sorts of threads and instructions.
    I am now at the stage where I have the adaptor installed (using RaLink 2.5.0.0 on Ubuntu 10.10 x86) and it will detect my wireless networks but just will not connect to anything at all, regardless of security preference.

    Can anyone give me some help on this?

    Re: Yet another WUSB600N problem

    Forget it.
    I managed to get it working myself now.

    Turns out there is a serious problem the drivers after v2.3.0.0 in Ubuntu. For some reason the only thing that will work is v2.3.0.0

    So here goes for anybody else who is having major issues with WUSB600N v2 in Ubuntu:

    Install WUSB600N v2

    Code:
    1) download the RT3572 module source from " http://download.modem-help.co.uk/mfcs-R/Ralink/Reference-Designs/RT3000UD/Drivers/Linux-k2-4/v2-3-0-0/2009-1222-RT3572-LinuxSTA-V2-1-.3.0.0.tar.bz2.php?showFile= " or " http://www.megaupload.com/?d=E90M6K3F "
    (filename: 2009_1222_RT3572_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0.tar.bz2)
    2) execute the command "bunzip2 2009_1222_RT3572_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0.tar.bz2"
    3) execute the command "tar -xvf 2009_1222_RT3572_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.0.tar"
    4) add the device and vendor id "{USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0079)}" between the "#ifdef RT35xx" and "#endif // RT35xx //" in the file "common/rtusb_dev_id.c"
    5) modify the "os/linux/config.mk" like I described in my previous message
    6) execute the command "sudo make"
    7) execute the command "sudo make install"
    8) execute the command "sudo modprobe rt3572sta"
    
    Keep the directory safe somewhere, you will need it to perform make install when you update Ubuntu kernel
    Load WUSB600N v2 at boot

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modules
    
    add
    
    rt3572sta
    alias ra0 rt3572sta
    Update WUSB600N v2 with new kernel

    Code:
    cd to RaLink v2.3.0.0 directory (for me this is ~/build)
    
    sudo su
    make clean
    make 
    make install
    modprobe rt3572sta
    NOTE: for some reason it still disconnects randomly, unplugging and re-inserting it should be fine
