    Nothing.

    I added the missing file:
    /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat

    Should I try to install the 2.4.0.1 driver?

    Something is very wrong. The Power of the Grey Beard is dimming! Let's do a full diagnostic work-up. We are going to create a text document that I and others can examine to pin down the problem. Please shut the computer completely down. Detach the ethernet cable. Insert the Sitecom. Boot up and run:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2870sta > ernst.txt
    iwconfig >> ernst.txt
    lsusb >> ernst.txt
    dmesg >> ernst.txt
    zip ernst.zip ernst.txt
    You will find a zip file in your home directory called ernst.zip. Please attach it to your reply using the paperclip above the reply box.

    Hi,
    I have added the zip file.
    I hope the list is complete.

    I have never indulged in adult beverages at 10:00am, but I may start. Before I reach for my tanto, please confirm that the required firmware is in place:
    Code:
    ls /lib/firmware | grep rt2
    We are looking for rt2870.bin.

    Next, please proofread the files we created above; is every character and space exactly correct?

    Next, open:
    Code:
    sudo tail -f /var/log/messages
    Remove the device, count to twenty and plug it back in. Are there any informative messages that appear? If so, you can copy and paste them from the terminal into a text document to post here.
    Should I try to install the 2.4.0.1 driver?
    Does your usb.id appear in usb_main_dev.c? We can add it if not.

    I notice you used the Vist64 driver in ndiswrapper. It is designed to use the XP drivers, although sometimes Win2000 and other drivers work. From man ndiswrapper-1.9:
    ndiswrapper - Linux kernel module and user space tool to load and run Windows XP drivers for wireless cards
    We may, as a Plan C, try the XP driver.

    I'm feeling guilty

    I checked the files:
    /etc/udev/rules.d/network_drivers.rules
    /etc/modprobe.d/network_drivers.conf

    they are ok.

    the firmware is available:

    :~$ ls /lib/firmware | grep rt2
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4096 2010-08-16 21:02 rt2870.bin

    in /var/log/messages only the device-storage appears:

    Nov 22 16:31:43 hope kernel: [ 6295.672961] usb 2-1: USB disconnect, address 3

    Nov 22 16:33:04 hope kernel: [ 6377.140086] usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4

    usb_main_dev.c doesn't support 2878

    (Also the driver doesn't compile under 10.10)

    I already tried the WINXP and the old WINXP2K driver.
    I had no luck with them.

    Oh my heavens!!!!!!!!

    I just noticed this: http://www.sitecom.com/wireless-usb-...stalling/p/713
    Simply plug this Wireless USB Adapter 300N XR - Self Installing into your desktop PC or notebook, and it will install all the necessary software automatically.
    I wonder if there are, in effect or actuality, two partitions on the device; a software bundle and the wireless radio. When you load the USB device in Ubuntu, it sees a software package and stops; nothing refers it on to the wireless radio.
    scsi 9:0:0:0: CD-ROM Ralink Wireless 11n 1.00 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 CCS
    It evidently emulates a CDROM.

    I would be very interested to see:
    Code:
    sudo fdisk /dev/sr1
    Does a device get created in /media, perhaps something like /media/SITECOM? If you right-click it, can you browse the contents?

    I have not encountered these before, we are learning together.

    I am sliding the tanto back in the sheath...

    Yes, windows adds two devices if you connect it.

    You can also see a "cd-rom" in /media

    ls /media/Sitecom\ WL-324/
    AutoInst.exe Autorun.inf setup.exe


    sorry, the fdisk output is in german:

    sudo fdisk /dev/sr1


    Platte /dev/sr1: 8 MByte, 8255488 Byte

    I think the Windows software somehow jumps from, in effect, the CDROM over to the wireless radio. I haven't any idea how to do that in Ubuntu. I have only two suggestions. First, email Sitecom and tell them of our problem and ask them for directions. Feel free to refer them to our discussions here. They may say that they don't support Linux and have no solutions.

    The other suggestion is to try another device.

    I am not sure I have any better ideas, but please post back if I can help.

    Question Re: rt2870sta / rt2800usb / ndiswrapper not working for: Sitecom 300N Wireless(WL-324

    Thank you for your help.

    Perhaps the USB_ModeSwitch package for usb-flipflop devices could solve this problem?

    I think it is worth a try. Please note that the package is included in the Ubuntu repositories; i.e. Synaptic. I'd install it and try it out. Please see:
    Code:
    man usb_modeswitch
    You will notice:
    -v --default-vendor NUM
    Vendor ID to look for (mandatory), usually given as hex number (example: 0x12d1). Each USB device is
    identified by a number officialy assigned to the vendor by the USB association and a number for the
    respective model (product ID) chosen by the vendor

    -p --default-product NUM
    Product ID to look for (mandatory).
    In your case, I believe, this would be:
    Code:
    sudo usb_modeswitch -v 0x148f -p 0x2878
    There may be other options required.

    We are learning together. Please let all of us know.
