    Re: Ubuntu 10.04 using the Ralink RT2860 WiFi chipset (e.g. EeeBox B202)

    I found this thread via a search for RT2760, the wireless card in my daughter's dual-boot WinXP/Ubuntu 10.04.

    I just upgraded to the Belkin N750 DB router from the version just below it and couldn't get her card to connect, due to the WPA security setting. The fix instructions in this thread are way above my Linux skill set, so I instead just disabled security completely, and used the MAC Address filtering to add all of the allowed devices in the house.

    The MAC Address Filter is a powerful security feature that allows you to specify which computers are allowed on the network. Any computer attempting to access the network that is not specified in the filter list will be denied access. When you enable this feature, you must enter the MAC address of each client on your network to allow network access to each. To enable this feature, select "Enable MAC Address Filtering". Next, enter the MAC address of each computer on your network by clicking "Add" and entering the MAC address in the space provided. Click "Apply Changes" to save the settings. To delete a MAC address from the list, simply click "Delete" next to the MAC address you wish to delete. Click "Apply Changes" to save the settings.

    Note: you will not be able to delete the MAC address of the computer you are using to access the Router's administrative functions. (The computer you are using now).


    This solved her connection problem, but I am wondering if there is any danger to this method. Thanks.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04 using the Ralink RT2860 WiFi chipset (e.g. EeeBox B202)

    I guess actually I'm the idiot. Ubuntu was set to load before the wireless card? Is this a BIOS setting I would need to change?

    I have been searching threads for a way to make my RT3090 work for the last week. There are lots of suggested workarounds, none of which I have been successful with.

    I am running 11.10. It is a fresh install. I've seen that this card should work out of the box in this version of Linux, but it does not. The machine is a desktop, HP Pavillion p6754y and it is currently running over a wired ethernet connection.

    The card seems to recognize wireless networks, but will not connect. Network Manager constantly asks me for my network password (which I have checked 1000+ times to make sure I am inputting it correctly). The connection NEVER authorizes. Wireless will lay dormant for about 5 minutes, and then the cycle will begin again.

    Any help at all would be immensely appreciated.

    Thank You.

    Ubuntu version 11.10 is a different case. I believe the driver it loads is now rt2800pci. Please confirm with:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep rt2
    Is your network WPA or WPA2 or the difficult and tricky mixed WPA and WPA2 mode? Can you switch it to WPA2 only before we proceed?

    Are there any clues here?
    Code:
    sudo cat /var/log/syslog | grep -e rt2 -e wlan -e etwork | tail -n20
    Please try this after you detach the ethernet cable and try to connect with wireless. We don't care to see a log of how beautifully your ethernet connects!

    I am so sorry. Let's start again? I forgot that I disabled wireless in the network manager because I got tired of all the prompts to enter the network password. /facepalm

    My apologies.

    EDIT: I feel like maybe I should start a new thread? Posting like this in a thread marked SOLVED does not seem right.

    It's your choice. I get notifications and answer here as well as anywhere.

    I have read a number of posts that suggest power management may be an issue. Please try:
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off
    If there is improvement, we can tweak one file to make it persistent.

    I tried it. No joy.

    If you are getting email notifications, I will stay in this thread for now. Thanks for trying to help me troubleshoot this.

    Re: Ubuntu 10.04 using the Ralink RT2860 WiFi chipset (e.g. EeeBox B202)

    I'm having an issue at step 5. I'm new to linux and would appreciate help.

    I'm using LMDE, GNOME 64-bit if it helps.
