Good Day all.
[System: 11.10 64bit]
I've followed this guide and the related link (http://www.squidoo.com/how-to-instal...-card-on-linux).
In the initial tests I got these answers:
0d:01.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. Device 3062
0d:01.0 0280: 1814:3062
I downloaded the following:
make and install with updates as required:
sudo modprobe rt3562sta
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
After the install and a restart, the Wireless option is completely disappeared and an extra wired has appeared.
I ran these tests as, with the results shown.
:~$ ls /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net | grep rt
:~$ lsmod | grep rt
parport_pc 36962 0
rt3562sta 986394 1
parport 46562 3 parport_pc,ppdev,lp
What is virtio_net?
I still have wired connectivity but no sign of wireless.
Can you help? I get the feeling some fundamental mistake has been made!!
