    Code:
    sudo  ifconfig wlan2 up

    well... this is weird.
    after the "wlan1 down" command - the network disconnects.
    but after a few seconds all goes back to normal. somehow wlan1 is waking up automatically....

    It is probably set to automatically reconnect. You may have to remove the device to test the wlan2 .

    Ok...
    I disconnected wlan1 and did "sudo ifconfig wlan2 up" again.
    but no luck here. no response. nothing changed. :\

    I noticed that your card has two modules loading for it .
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Add this line at the end of the file
    Code:
    blacklist rt2800pci
    You'll need to reboot then
    Code:
    iwconfig

    ahh!
    It's alive! ALIVE!

    I had "blacklist rt2800usb", but after adding the "pci" one and rebooted - It's all seems to go back to normal!

    Thank you very very much

    • Is there support in the standard bundled Ubuntu 10.10 kernels?
      • If not, what is a good lower priced PCI 802.11g,n (preferably low / high profile like this) that works "out of the box"?
      • If not, can you sum up what had to be done to get it to work on 10.10?

    • Any feedback on the overall performance or what may be better for the about the same cost?

    Thanks,

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

    Hello!
    I am trying to get my Rosewill RNX N150pcx installed in 10.04lts. I got to the 5th step: Now you'll need to load the driver

    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt3562sta.ko

    these commands just result in: FATAL Module rt3562sta.ko not found

    lspci shows a network controller at 02:09.0 RaLink Device 3060 etc...

    the funny thing is when I opened Hardware Drivers rt3562sta.ko was there. it says the driver is activated but not currently in use. So I deactivated it. then reactivated it. It worked! I connected to my wireless router.

    BUT... after reboot no such luck. the driver still says its active but not in use. but if i disable/reable, it just asks for reboot and I am back to where i started.(no connection)
    And I did add the lines to /etc/modules and saved it....

    One Note, Make Install required sudo privledges. but i did not use it on the Make Command.....

    Thanks for the help!

    I used 'sudo make' started the whole processover with a fresh driver folder and it made it work!

    I followed the instructions to install the driver for my wireless adapter, but it appears that it doesn't "see" any available networks (despite being 10 feet from a working access point). Here's some info that MooPi suggested would be helpful:

    lspci -v | less:

    Code:
    05:00.0 Network controller: RaLink Device 3060
            Subsystem: RaLink Device 3060
            Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 32, IRQ 20
            Memory at fdcf0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
            Capabilities: <access denied>
            Kernel driver in use: rt2800pci
            Kernel modules: rt3562sta, rt2800pci
    iwconfig:

    Code:
    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
    iwlist scanning
    Code:
    lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    eth0      Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    wlan0     No scan results
    Can someone please give me some guidance? Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: I also tried the "connect to a hidden wireless network" option and entered the WAP's name and WPA2 security key -- still no luck. For what it's worth, it connects just fine in Windows on the same machine.
