    Exclamation Well, it's back to the rt3562sta / rt2860 driver

    Is it just me, or is this weird?

    For exactly one minor kernel release, the standard supplied driver for my Ralink 3062 wireless card, rt2800pci, worked like a charm. That was kernel 3.0.0-15. Before that, I always had to make and install the chipset vendor's driver, rt3562sta / rt2860.

    But, with this morning's upgrade to kernel 3.0.0-16, I could not get rt2800pci to connect. It was at least trying to connect, but it asked for the WPA2 authentication password over and over. I reinstalled rt3562sta and the connection came right up.

    What on earth are they doing with rt2800pci that it works for one minor kernel release, then it fails again?

    The current problem with new kernel 3.0.0-16 is identical to bug 851339, which was not resolved but has been marked "Expired".

    I have a similar problem (I think). My Netgear N300 usb wireless dongle stopped working when I went to 3.0.0-16. Going back to 3.0.0-15 fixed problem. The N300 has Broadcom bcm43231, and I'm running 64bit 11.10
