    Re: Connecting to wifi

    Hi,

    this device can be used with the rt2860sta or rt2800pci module. The latter is newer and currently further developed. Both drivers are part of the kernel.

    Check:

    Code:
    grep rt28 /etc/modprobe.d/*
    Load the driver by hand:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v rt2800pci
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo update-initramfs -u

    Hi, run the last three command given by praseodym, after you unplug your wired connection.

    If it does not come on post the results if the first command he gave.
    Thank you

    nothingspecial, more than that, I would still have had to figure out the BIOS problem. I have learnt quite a lot in a short time. I've been really impressed by the concise, accurate and friendly advice here.
