    Nope. This is a fresh install as of today.
    I think the driver just isn't installed, but I can't get it to compile (see original post).

    Once you have build-essential and linux-headers-generic installed, go to post #24 in the thread josephmills referred you to above. I referred to a 64-bit patch which was omitted. You evidently require it, so download and install it.

    Post back any errors. Warnings are OK.

    Hallelujah. Thank you all so much. Installing all of those patches finally took care of it. I'm very grateful to everyone!

    Re: Ralink 5390 / 11.04 / Compaq presario CQ56

    It's laid out for you step by step; you can download the files and copy and paste the commands. The 5390 is a pretty new device; you only need stick with 10.10 until you want to copy and paste the commands or until the 5390 is natively supported; when that will be I haven't a clue.

    Yours is a common complaint; everyone wants an item that was introduced a few weeks ago to be natively supported, that is, out of the box, right now. The complaint extends beyond wireless devices to webcams, printers (especially multi-function devices), tablets, etc., etc.

    Linux always runs just a bit behind; devices without any Linux support are being introduced almost daily. I wish I could tell you Linux (or any operating system) is perfect. It isn't.

    Thumbs up Re: Ralink 5390 / 11.04 / Compaq presario CQ56

    Ok guys I understand, I really do appreciate the fact that the problem was resolved by you experts and am very glad there are people like you out there working with us less experienced. I think it's partly that I would like to be able to shout from the rooftops that Ubuntu is THE best system in the world but I hesitate after every update to recommend it to people as I expect them then to be calling me looking for support (as they do for another well known and much disliked OS..). I hope you saw at least some of the humour in my last post and I will be referring to these steps again real soon thanks again.
