    Error: modinfo: could not find module rta2860sta
    It is actually:
    Code:
    modinfo rt2860sta
    The rename of the file to extract a second time is fixed. Extract once and proceed.

    You can probably skip this:
    Use the find command to locate MIX_CIPHER_NOTUSE. Replace the entire line (keep on one line) with this code:
    WPA_MIX_PAIR_CIPHER FlexibleCipher = WPA_TKIPAES_WPA2_TKIPAES;
    Check what the file says; it's probably fixed.

    You already have gcc, so skip that step.

    Do NOT skip this step:
    Step 3
    Code:

    gedit ./os/linux/config.mk

    Use the find command to locate HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT and make sure it is set to y for yes. It should look like this when finished:
    HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y


    Use the find command to locate HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT and make sure it is set to y for yes. It should look like this when finished:
    HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y


    Close and save this file.
    Skip this step:
    Step 6
    Rename the old rt2860sta.ko driver file to rt2860sta.ko.dist using:

    Code:

    sudo mv /lib/modules/2.6.*/kernel/drivers/staging/rt2860/rt2860sta.ko rt2860sta.ko.dist

    Attention: you need to replace the * with the actual directory name of your kernel, please check the folder name with Nautilus.
    Then I'd compile with:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/RT3090files  <--or whatever you extracted
    sudo su
    make
    make install
    exit
    I'll be back in a few after I actually compile it.

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

    make[1]: gcc: Command not found
    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    Then try again.

    It makes for me with warnings but no errors on kernel 2.6.32 which is as close as I have to EasyPeasy. The module will be loaded with:
    sudo modprobe rt3090sta

    apt-get didn't worked too, but i do something in Synaptic Package Manager, then install build-essentials, compile and now I have wireless connection! Thanks A LOT, i wish everyone everywhere solve problems like you

    Thank you for your kind words! Glad it's working.

    Don't forget, when a newer linux-image is installed by Update Manager, you'll need to recompile:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/RT3090files  <--or whatever you extracted
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    exit
