    ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Receiver Issues

    I'm having issues getting my ASUS USB-N13 wireless receiver to work. I searched the Networking & Wireless Forum for answers. I found a post ( http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...USB-N13&page=2) and tried following it, but had no success. Can anyone help me with this frustrating problem? Would appreciate assistance. FYI, I am running Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx). I am reasonably computer savvy, with some programming experience, but am very new to Linux. Also, I have the following USB-N13 drivers downloaded to my desktop:

    2009_0811_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.1.0_USB-N13

    RT3070_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.1_20100208

    DPO_RT3070_LinuxSTA_V2.3.0.2_20100422

    2010_0709_RT2870_Linux_STA_v2.4.0.1

    Appreciate any help.

    Maybe there is an easier way. Please run:
    Code:
    lsusb
    If your device ID is 0b05:1784 then we can shortcut the process. Remove the device and in a terminal, do:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/network_drivers.rules
    Add one long line:
    Code:
    ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0b05", ATTR{idProduct}=="1784", RUN+="/sbin/modprobe -qba rt2870sta"
    Caps, brackets, punctuation, etc. are crucial. Proofread twice, save and close gedit.
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/network_drivers.conf
    Add one long single line:
    Code:
    install rt2870sta /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install rt2870sta $CMDLINE_OPTS; /bin/echo "0b05 1784" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2870/new_id
    Proofread twice, save and close gedit. Insert the device. If it doesn't start immediately, you might have to do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2870sta
    You should be all set. Post back if you need additional guidance.

    Thanks...will give it a try. One question, though. Regarding the text/code you provide for inserting, should I assume to copy everything you provided exactly, including the quotation marks? Just want to be sure before I proceed. Thanks.

    Yes, exactly. Be sure to scroll all the way over to the right to get all the text to the end. As always, proofread carefully before you save.

    Post back if you have more questions.

    Re: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Receiver Issues

    Tried all you said. USB receiver finally showed a green light. Upper right hand of desktop shows radiating wireless icon, as well as the network name of my Windows 7 network. Below the network name is the "disconnect" option. However, a pop up black message indicates otherwise, stating no connection. And, when I open up Firefox to browse, it shows offline status. I tried restarting modem, router, and computer, in order, but no luck with getting it to work. So, the good news is that the operating system is recognizing the ASUS USB-N13 receiver. The bad news is that the indications are conflicting (i.e., shows connection, but really isn't). FYI, I even double-checked to see if my network key/password was correct, and it was. Quite stumped now. Do you have any clue why this is happening? Appreciate your help, again.

    Re: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Receiver Issues

    Did you click on the network name and were you challenged for encryption details; WPA2 etc.? Ubuntu is not going to connect to any old possibly insecure network without direction from you. Please let us see:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    ifconfig wlan0

    When I click on the network name, it appears a connection is either made or attempted, but I am not queried, as you asked.

    OK, I entered the code and here are the results:

    stan@Peter2-Linux-Ubuntu:~$ iwconfig

    Well, you are certainly not connected. Let's see:
    Code:
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    dmesg | grep rt2
    Thanks.

    OK, per the code, here is what I got:

    Re: ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Receiver Issues

    You will probably have better luck without a space in the name of the router; I'd suggest PeterFamily. Moreover, many drivers have difficulty with mixed WPA and WPA2 mode. I suggest changing to WPA2 only.

    Clearly, if you click on the name, before connection, you ought to be challenged for the key.

    Your kernel messages look perfect; no problems there.

    Please see examples attached.
