    Ralink RT2860 is deadly slow with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and 3.2.0

    Hello,

    I have an issue with wireless.
    My MB (Zotac H67) has a Ralink RT2860 chipset.

    I have two access points:
    - from my ISP (I will call it ISP)
    - an ALIX with an Atheros AR5414 miniPCI wireless card

    this my experience: linux wired is really fast. If I connect it to the ISP wireless it's so slow it makes you cry. Speedtest.net doesn't even start and wget can't show an actual speed. But it is connected and it works. If I connect it to the ALIX, it works more or less, but very slow. My XP laptop works fine connected to both APs.

    Test results with http://www.speedtest.net/:

    Code:
    laptop lenovo T400 with XP wireless (ISP router):
    ping 24ms
    download 4.46 Mbps
    upload 0.74  Mbps
    
    laptop lenovo T400 with XP wireless (ALIX running Voyage - based on Debian 6.0.3 "Squeeze"):
    ping 24ms
    download 5.50 Mbps
    upload 0.74  Mbps
    
    desktop linux with kernel 3.0.0-15 wired:
    ping 18 ms
    download 12.19 Mbps
    upload 0.77 Mbps
    
    desktop linux with kernel 3.0.0-15 wireless (ISP router):
    ping 18 ms
    download test stalls
    (from wget I can see a download barely starts, but it's too slow for wget to show a speed)
    
    desktop linux with kernel 3.0.0-15 wireless (ALIX running Voyage - based on Debian 6.0.3 "Squeeze"):
    ping 20ms
    download 2.22 Mbps
    upload 0.77 Mbps
    
    desktop linux with kernel 3.2.0 wired:
    ping 16 ms
    download 12.08 Mbps
    upload 0.76 Mbps
    
    desktop linux with kernel 3.2.0 wireless (ISP router):
    ping 18 ms
    download test stalls
    (from wget I can see a download barely starts, but it's too slow for wget to show a speed)

    upload 0.76 Mbps
    A bit of info:

    Code:
    $ lspci -nn | grep 0280
    01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Ralink corp. RT2860 [1814:0781]
    Code:
    $ uname -r
    3.2.0-interlaced2+
    (intel developers just fixed a bug on the driver of my video card so I need this custom built kernel)

    Code:
    $ lsmod | grep rt2
    rt2800pci              18108  0
    rt2800lib              52596  1 rt2800pci

    eeprom_93cx6           13134  1 rt2800pci
    I found this bug report for RedHat which seems to face the same issue and they seem to be testing a patch a couple of weeks ago...
    I'd love to know how to apply this patch to my kernel...

    I'm not sure if to ask support for this issue I should contact serial monkey or driverdev since here I read:

    If you are using the rt2860 or rt2870 driver located in the staging directory of the linux kernel, you should ask support on the mailinglist: devel@driverdev.osuosl.org
    But I'm almost sure it's serial monkey since rt2800pci is in folder drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/. I'm waiting to be accepted on the forum to post my issue there...

    Before posting on serialmonkey.com I'd like to rule out any configuration issue.

    On debian squeeze you can still download rt2860sta (see here)
    Is there something similar for Oneiric 11.10?

    there are several thread on RT2860 issues:
    here
    here
    here

    This especially: the suggestion is to offer only WPA2 with just TKIP but I'm not sure how to change /etc/hostapd/hostapd.wlan0.conf in the wireless router to achieve that...

    this is my current hostapd.wlan0.conf:
    Code:
    interface=wlan0
    driver=nl80211
    logger_syslog=-1
    logger_syslog_level=2
    logger_stdout=-1
    logger_stdout_level=2
    debug=4
    #dump_file=/tmp/hostapd.dump
    #ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd
    #ctrl_interface_group=0
    channel=6
    hw_mode=g
    macaddr_acl=0
    auth_algs=3
    eapol_key_index_workaround=0
    eap_server=0
    wpa=3
    #ssid=voyage-mpd
    ssid=the-truth-is-out-there
    #wpa_passphrase=voyage-mpd
    wpa_passphrase=<<password>>
    wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    wpa_pairwise=TKIP
    rsn_pairwise=CCMP
    eapol_version=1
    #wme_enabled=1
    #ieee80211n=1
    #ht_capab=[HT40-][HT40+][SHORT-GI-40][TX-STBC][RX-STBC1] [DSSS_CCK-40]
    I also looked at suggestions here and here

    This is how my ALIX wireless is seen:

    The first thing I'd suggest is to set the router to WPA or WPA2 only, not mixed mode WPA AND WPA2 as now:

    You might also look at an updated firmware package. You seem fairly knowledgable, but if you need more help getting the firmware installed, please post back. See post #72 here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ht=5390&page=8

    Hi,

    I tried to allow only WPA2 (in the ALIX which serves as access point):

    Code:
    # cat /etc/hostapd/hostapd.wlan0.conf
    interface=wlan0
    driver=nl80211
    logger_syslog=-1
    logger_syslog_level=2
    logger_stdout=-1
    logger_stdout_level=2
    debug=4
    #dump_file=/tmp/hostapd.dump
    #ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd
    #ctrl_interface_group=0
    channel=6
    hw_mode=g
    macaddr_acl=0
    auth_algs=3
    eapol_key_index_workaround=0
    eap_server=0
    # wpa=3
    # only wpa 2
    wpa=2
    #ssid=voyage-mpd
    ssid=the-truth-is-out-there
    #wpa_passphrase=voyage-mpd
    wpa_passphrase=nivea123ALLEGRO
    wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    wpa_pairwise=TKIP
    rsn_pairwise=CCMP
    eapol_version=1
    #wme_enabled=1
    #ieee80211n=1
    #ht_capab=[HT40-][HT40+][SHORT-GI-40][TX-STBC][RX-STBC1][DSSS_CCK-40]
    and I think it works (from my ubuntu):

    Code:
    wlan1     Scan completed :
              Cell 01 - Address: 00:0B:6B:2E:25:D5

    but still, speedtest.net reports 1.72 Mbit download... so no joy...

    About firmware, indeed I don't have the newest:

    Code:
    $ md5sum RT2860_Firmware_V26/rt2860.bin
    66332d7636ee78db31b056aa0e44b097  RT2860_Firmware_V26/rt2860.bin
    $ md5sum  /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    75a1da3caa0b1c95e81dfba207f834c6  /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    I followed your suggestions on how to change the firmware here except modprobe rt2800pci gave me an error so I rebooted.

    after reboot, I still have max download of 1.76 on speedtest.net ...

    I checked and the firmware now is new:

    Code:
    $ md5sum /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    66332d7636ee78db31b056aa0e44b097  /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    here I'm also trying to recompile and install rt2860sta at the same time (but I'm careful to run only either rt2860sta or rt2860pci):

    Code:
    $ lsmod | grep rt
    parport_pc             31968  1
    rt2800pci              18108  0
    rt2800lib              52596  1 rt2800pci
    crc_ccitt              12595  1 rt2800lib
    rt2x00pci              14116  1 rt2800pci
    rt2x00lib              48261  3 rt2800pci,rt2800lib,rt2x00pci
    mac80211              432604  3 rt2800lib,rt2x00pci,rt2x00lib
    cfg80211              174734  2 rt2x00lib,mac80211
    eeprom_93cx6           13134  1 rt2800pci
    parport                40762  3 parport_pc,ppdev,lp
    but rt2800sta doesn't seem to see my network card after I compiled it...

    Any other suggestion?

    Code:

    $ lsmod | grep rt
    parport_pc 31968 1
    rt2800pci 18108 0
    rt2800lib 52596 1 rt2800pci
    crc_ccitt 12595 1 rt2800lib
    rt2x00pci 14116 1 rt2800pci
    rt2x00lib 48261 3 rt2800pci,rt2800lib,rt2x00pci
    mac80211 432604 3 rt2800lib,rt2x00pci,rt2x00lib
    cfg80211 174734 2 rt2x00lib,mac80211
    eeprom_93cx6 13134 1 rt2800pci
    parport 40762 3 parport_pc,ppdev,lp

    but rt2800sta doesn't seem to see my network card after I compiled it...
    I think you'll need to blacklist rt2800pci and consequently block all its dependencies in order for rt2860sta to work.

    Were there any unusual warnings in the 'make' process?

    I did this to test rt2860sta:

    Code:
    sudo rmmod rt2860pci rt2860lib rt2x00pci rt2x00lib mac80211 cfg80211
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo modprobe rt2860sta
    Is it the right way? Can you suggest a better way?

    thanks,

    Re: Ralink RT2860 is deadly slow with Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and 3.2.0

    The proof is in the results. After you rmmod, are any rt2800 or rt2x00 modules still hanging around? You might try:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rv rt2800pci
    Then check lsmod again.

    After you load rt2860sta, are there any clues here?
    Code:
    dmesg | grep rt2

    Thank you!

    Almost found it...

    The latest compat-wireless-3.3-rc1-2 fixes the issue. But it compiles only under kernel 3.0.0, but I need kernel 3.2.0 for an other fix...

    So now I need to find a way to compile compat-wireless-3.3-rc1-2 under kernel 3.2.0. I also tried the latest bleeding edge version of compat-wireless without joy.

    This is the error I get:

    Hi, thank you!

    Yes I'm in contact with them. The patch is already available. but not yet applied to the daily built.
    I'll wait a couple of days to see if they update the daily tar file here.

    Otherwise I'll bite the bullet and try to compile directly from git following this page.

    I'll update this page once it's done with instructions.
