    Angry RT2860sta drivers not working

    hello
    I'm using ubuntu with kernel 2.6.38 which is not supporting my RALINK wifi card. i have installed rt2860sta drivers from ralink website and blacklisted all others remaning drivers. but still Wicd is not detecting any wifi drivers and ifconfig and iwconfig are also not showing any wireless extension.

    lsmod | grep rt2860sta showing
    rt2860sta 816407 o
    its showing program using this drivers 0;

    i have also tried by loading another kernel 2.6.35 which is having rt2860 drivers inbuilt...but the said part of story is GRUB is not loading new kernel.

    im trying to install this drivers from last 2 months...i would b very thankful if anybody here help me...

    Let's see what wireless card you have. Please run and post:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280
    Thanks.

    rt2860sta is not correct for your device; you need rt3562sta. Here is a pretty good tutorial: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ight=rt3562sta

    Post back if you get stuck or need further assistance.

    Re: RT2860sta drivers not working

    iwconfig ra0 essid "suraj" key "hs6837"
    Is it incorrect because WEP keys can be 5, 10, 13 or 26 characters and yours appears to be 6?

    Does it scan?
    Code:
    sudo iwlist ra0 scan
    Did you make the changes to config.mk to be managed by Network Manager when you are actually using Wicd and not NM?

    It sounds to me like it's working fine! Does Network Manager see those same networks? Can you click the icon and connect?
