    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!
    Haha, already done a print screen, cause I did an update and needed to do it again ;P But thanks again, have tried out ubuntu over a few years. But have been on and off But just got my System76 machine from USA soo..now am I going to stick with ubuntu ^^,

    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?
    Just tried it and it's working great. Thank you so much.

    Regards,
    Michael

    To Chili555,

    I had the same problem with a d-link DWA140B3 (not working with xubuntu 12.04). Your solution was rather easy to apply and it's working. Thanks a lot.

    Dear Chil555,

    It's a pity, but after an upgrade of the linux kernel, the D-link DWA140B3 is NOT working anymore. Several attemps (following your advices) were unsuccessful. I am crying...
    Best regards.
