    I'm getting closer! I can see the wireless network now. I'm trying to connect, but it's taking a while...

    Our wireless network sometimes does not cooperate. Maybe if I reset that?

    Now let's see:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep wlan
    ls -al /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    md5sum /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    We hope we see:Thanks.
    Here are several replies, all combined right here.

    Your comment to ratcheer? Got it! Sorry I misunderstood.

    Next,

    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ dmesg | grep wlan
    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ ls -al /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8192 2011-08-23 08:23 /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ md5sum /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    75a1da3caa0b1c95e81dfba207f834c6 /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$

    Finally, when I rebooted the PC, all the wireless stuff that had been enabled by one of my previous above steps has stopped! When I click the network windshield (I'm not sure the name of it, but it's in the Desktop bar--again, I'm probably using the wrong word, sorry, but it's essential the start menu bar), I now only have wired network. The wireless option that existed (and let me attempt to connect to my home wireless network) is now gone. Also, of course the Wired Network option is disabled. If I had a Wired Network available, I would be using that. Now there's nothing for Wireless Network.

    Well, of course. We are attempting to use rt2800pci by manually loading it:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2800pci
    However, this module and its dependencies are blacklisted so they won't load on boot unless you do so manually. Please amend /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to remove these items:
    Code:
    blacklist rt2800pci
    blacklist rt2800lib
    blacklist rt2x00pci
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    Now reboot and you'll probably be all set.

    Re: Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI Ralink 3060 chip driver instructions

    So I went back and did the steps suggested in the instructions to me. That did get my Wireless Network to appear, and it even has the name of the wireless network. I'm getting very close!!

    I try to connect. It doesn't find anything. I choose the Connect to Hidden Wireless Network, and Rooney does appear. But I don't think it should be a hidden wireless network. Next, I keep getting asked for the Password. I type that in, and it just keeps trying to connect. And then repeatedly asks me for the password.

    I'm so close!!! Just work, you pesky computer!!!

    What does this tell us?
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    iwconfig
    Thanks.

    Why won't this cooperate!?!?!! Here's what I get.

    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    [sudo] password for tsr:
    wlan0 No scan results

    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID : off/any
    Mode:Managed Access Point : Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm
    Retry long limit : 7 RTS thr : off Fragment thr : off
    Power Management : off

    tsr@TimothySRooney : ~ $

    And how can I turn off those smiley faces? (Note I've added spaces to turn the smiley faces back to normal characters.)

    Also, some previous stuff you wanted me to type has changed. It now looks like this.

    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ sudo modprobe rt2800pci
    [sudo] password for tsr:
    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ dmesg | grep rt2
    [ 10.985677] rt2800pci 0000:01:07.0: PCI INT A -> Link[LNKB] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18

    [ 11.388119] phy0 -> rt2800pci_mcu_status: Error - MCU request failed, no response from hardware
    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$

    I'm off to class. I'll be back around dinner time. Thus, I can't respond for a while. Any advice or suggestion while I am away is still great. Thanks!

    Yes, and rt2800pci still would not work for me. Nor will r8169 work for my ethernet card. However, on Arch Linux with kernel 3.1.4, r8169 now works. I still have to use rt3562sta for my wireless card, though.

    I will try to disappear from this thread. But I will keep an eye on it to see if he can get rt2800pci to work. I would really enjoy it if I could stop messing with these outside drivers.

    Thanks,

    Re: Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI Ralink 3060 chip driver instructions

    UNCLE!

    Isn't that what we say when we've lost the battle and give up? I had high hopes for the revised and updated rt2x00 suite of drivers under kernel 3.0, but I have seen many problems and no successes. So, Uncle. Let's put the blacklists back in place and compile the driver from source. You have in your system:
    tsr@TimothySRooney:~/Downloads/Ralink$ ls
    2010_0115_RT3562_RT3062_Linux_STA_V2.3.0.0 DPO_RT3562_3592_3062_LinuxSTA_V2.4.1.1_20101217 rnx-n150pc_linux_2.6.3x.zip
    2010_0115_RT3562_RT3062_Linux_STA_V2.3.0.0.tar.bz2 DPO_RT3562_3592_3062_LinuxSTA_V2.4.1.1_20101217.tg z
    You will need to install build tools and linux headers. With an ethernet connection, please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get build-essential linux-headers-generic
    Next you need to use the newer version I've highlighted. Open DPO_RT.../os/linux/config.mk with a text editor. Change line 12 to read HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y and change line 15 to read HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y. Proofread, save and close the text editor. Now open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    cd Downloads/Ralink/DPO_RT3562_3592_3062_LinuxSTA_V2.4.1.1_20101217
    sudo su
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt3562sta
    exit
    Now is it working?

    Smile Re: Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI Ralink 3060 chip driver instructions

    Chili555, thank you so much for another solution. I have a very busy evening ahead of me. I won't be able to move my PC around to get to the Ethernet connection until tomorrow evening. Because of this, don't expect more information until then. Thanks, though, for providing this solution. I hope it works! I'll keep you updated as I go through the process tomorrow.

    Thanks!!!
