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

    I've run that

    sudo modprobe rt3562sta
    and it's got back to command line.

    How do i know if it's installed and how do i start the wireless?

    Just run this command

    sudo ifconfig ra0 inet up
    and the error message is
    ra0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

    That means, roughly, "command accepted and no errors to report, sir!"

    Do you have a wireless interface, ra0 or otherwise, when you run:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    What interesting kernel messages are there?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -e rt2 -e rt3
    Ordinarily, you should be able to click the Network Manager icon, see networks and click yours to connect.

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

    I went back and looked at some of the earlier posts and now i've got it working

    What is needed is a really well explained tutorial beuase apart from on here I've found nothing about installing wireless network drivers.

    I just updated to the latest kernel running under 10.04 ( 2.6.32-29-generic ) and discovered that my wireless was not working. Reboot to an earlier kernel and wireless worked. So I deduced that I needed to reinstall the driver for the latest kernel. Followed my own instructions to install again and everything is back and running again.
    As chili555 says below( make clean ) an important step to correctly complete the re-installation.

    Quite correct. Whenever a new kernel or, in Ubuntu-speak, linux-image is installed, you'll need to reinstall. Navigate to the RT3060 folder and do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt3562sta
    exit

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

    Hi guys, I am fairly new to Linux and Ubintu, but reading this thread (and this forum) has helped me install and use my wireless adapter. Thank you!

    That is until last night following some ubuntu updates.
    I was using my computer and I noticed the update manager. So I clicked the checkmark to proceed with the updates.

    A couple of hours later I was done working, and before I shut down I noticed that the updates required a reboot. So I decided to reboot and then shut down.
    After the reboot I noticed that I had no internet connection, and I actually realized that the wireless adapter "disappeared". Even the lights on the card are not flashing anymore. At least the first time I installed the card the lights were flashing. Now it's dead. So I had to move the PC to wire it up (ethernet still works)

    I have no idea what to do. I tried to reinstall the drivers from scratch, but I realized that that is not the problem, the card is missing.

    iwconfig does not even show it anymore!

    Is there any way to find out what the latest update includes? Anyway to uninstall the updates?

    I found this command "lshw -c network" and this is what it returns:

    The main error is that the system does not seem to see the that there is a wireless adapter.
    I want to point out that I succeeded in installing the drivers and I had been using the wireless card for over two weeks.
    The wireless adapter disappeared after some Ubuntu updates last night that required to reboot.

    Thanks for the help, it works now.
    It was due to the new Kernel! I had no idea I needed to re-install every-time the kernel is updated.
    Thanks!
