    I would love to get this working, has anyone had any luck with this?

    I know there are other supported devices out there, but I haven't found any other dual band 450mps usb adapters that work either.
    Do you have the same device?
    Code:
    lsusb
    Is the driver you compiled called rt5572sta? Please show us:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep rt5
    dmesg | grep rt5
    Thanks.

    I was able to compile and install the driver. But I still have no functionality.
    I did a [user]>make
    [user]>su
    >make install

    driver appears as a ra0 under ifconfig.

    Now remove your current profile and create a new one. Check then:

    Code:
    iwconfig
    rfkill list
    lsmod
    dmesg | grep rt5

    Did you make the changes mentioned in the README?

    Re: WNDA 4100 (NetGear N900) Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter

    I purchased one of these today. I will post my results.

    I honestly cannot remember the last time I had a hardware issue with linux, but this is the 2nd Netgear device in week that probably isn't going to work.

    Re: WNDA 4100 (NetGear N900) Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter

    Any new info on this? I'm trying to get it working too.

    I've compiled the package from Ralink just fine, and the module "rt3572sta" shows up when I do lsmod.

    But it never shows up under 'ifconfig'

    Any tips?

    I'm not sure why it says RT2870 at the top, the Makefile says Chipset = 3572.

    Maybe there's another place I need to set it to 3572 before compiling?

    Re: WNDA 4100 (NetGear N900) Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter

    Ralink rewrites a lot of their USB drivers using the RT2870 driver as a template. Its mention here is meaningless.

    The reason I asked for modinfo was so you and I could look in the alias fields for your device, xx:9012. I don't see it. That's because rt3572sta is not correct for your device. Please see: http://www.wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_WNDA4100
    Chip 1: Ralink RT3573
    Also please see here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ht=3573&page=2

    Your device is also not mentioned in the files for rt3573sta, so you'll need to follow the same process as I outlined in post #13:
    Code:
    #endif /* RT35xx */
    #ifdef RT3573
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x148F,0x3573)}, /* Ralink 3573 */
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x7392,0x7733)}, /* Edimax */
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x0846,0x9012)}, /* Netgear */
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x0B05,0x17AD)}, /*ASUS */
    #endif /* RT3573 */
    	{ }/* Terminating entry */
    It may or may not work; if not, we'll try the rt5572sta package.

    Please post back if you need more detailed instructions.

    Re: WNDA 4100 (NetGear N900) Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter

    That is fantastic, I got the 3573 driver and added the line you mentioned and it's up now!

    But, it isn't connecting to the router. It gets a Mac address for the AP, but never gets an ip address. Is this probably an authentication problem?

    I'm using WPA2PSK security mode in the rt2870sta.dat configuration file, should I be using WPA2 + wpa supplicant instead? How do I know when to use wpa supplicant?

    Thanks so much for your help
