    Lee, before we give you the magic of compiling, tell us about your device. Please open a terminal and run and post:
    Code:
    lsusb
    Also, what version are you running?
    Code:
    lsb_release -r
    Are you able to get an ethernet connection temporarily?

    Can you get those details running the live CD? If you are running any other Linux distribution, the lsusb will be the same.

    Alrighty then, let's rock! Download the file referenced above to your desktop. Right-click the package and select Extract Here. Another compressed package will be extracted. Right-click it and select Rename. Rename it 5370 with no extension. Right-click the package and select Extract Here. Whew!

    Now open the folder and drill down to os/linux/config.mk. Open config.mk with Text Editor. Change these lines.
    Code:
    # Support Wpa_Supplicant
    HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y
    
    
    # Support Native WpaSupplicant for Network Maganger
    HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y
    Proofread carefully, save and close the text editor. Now open the terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
    cd Desktop/2011
    Press Tab and the remainder of the long name will fill in automagically. Press Enter. Now do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt5370sta
    exit
    Is it working?

    cd Desktop/2011[/CODE]Press Tab and the remainder of the long name will fill in automagically. Press Enter. Now do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt5370sta
    exit

    the install was succesfull. But when i do cd desktop/2011 and press tab or copy/paste the folder name I only get No such file or directory. Have also tried with skrivebord/2011 and tab but no luck.

    My ubuntu is on norwegian, so i tried with skrivebord wich is desktop on english

    Edit: No worries, found out of it !
    And its working, thanks alot!

    Awesome! Glad it's working.

    Whenever a newer kernel version, or linux-image as it's called in Ubuntu, is released and installed by Update Manager, you'll need to rebuild the module for the newer kernel:
    Code:
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt5370sta
    exit
    Please make a note of this so you are ready when the inevitable updates are installed.

    Congratulations; now you are among the few who are experienced and successful with compiling!
