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

    If you extracted the tar.gz and then made the changes in the extracted folder, then, no, it shouldn't revert.

    If, on the other hand you went all the way back in the instructions to 'right-click, Extract Here' then you have extracted a virgin, if you will, copy. By the way, this is a handy capability when too many ill-considered changes have been made, you can (OK, I can, since I am usually the one to make ill-aadvised changes) get a new un-modified copy.
    In future, then, every time a new kernel is installed, I should, BEFORE recompiling
    It never hurts to check your work until you are confident.
    Then, if all is well I shoud recompile per d here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...2&postcount=41 (msg #41 of this thread)
    Exactly.

    You might check the files after 'make clean'; we hope there is no weird reversion script that wipes out our changes.

    I'm glad you are both working as expected!

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

    So i've got everything set up and i've noticed that my connection will lag out about every 10-15 minutes. I was playing urbanterror and about every 10 mins or so it would flash "connection interruption" for about a minute, and i noticed on youtube and hulu the same thing happens, the video will stop and/or skip for about a minute at random times. Is there a way to fix this?

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

    Just to report that I have just tried the cheat sheet live on a new linux image (had to) and it worked perfectly again. There does not appear to be any weird reversion script at work. (I must have re-extracted a virgin file when I last encountered that problem.)

    Phew! I was dreading this.

    Any reason I could not write the commands into a bash script?

    None whatever. You might also share the script here for the searchers' benefit.

    @chhili555

    Thank you very much for your solution. It worked out of the box for
    the following configuration as well:

    Ubuntu, 12.10, quantal

    Netgear, WNDA4100, Ralink RT3573, driver: rt3573sta
    kernel: 3.5.0-17-generic, x86-64

    OK, so I wrote a script and it fails. But I go back to manually inputting at the terminal as root and it works. I'm very new to script writing, as it will show.

    I did something wrong ... what?

    Here is my initial script:

    #!/bin/sh
    cd Desktop/Linux/DPO_RT3573_LinuxSTA_V2.5.0.0/
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt3573sta
    exit
    I realized that since I was changing user, it halted at sudo su. So then I did this, which I attempted to run after changing to the right directory and switching to root:

    #!/bin/sh
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt3573sta
    exit
    It got a FATAL ERROR that scared the living LinuxCurses out of me. Then I went manual.

    Help this idiot newbie, please!

    I'm not a script guy either, but if you don't 'sudo su' you needn't exit. Also, you forgot to cd Desktop/Linux/DPO_RT3573_LinuxSTA_V2.5.0.0/. I am not sure how to get around the 'sudo su' step.

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

    I'd like to add my thanks to chili555 as well. As far as a script is concerned, just run it as su.
    Edit the script and add #!/bin/bash as the first line.

    Now make the script executable; chmod 777 "script name"
    Last, execute the script; sudo "script name"
    If the script is in the current directory then; sudo "./script name"

    Hi @ all,
    I was able to get my WNDA4100 to run through this thread!!! Thank you very much chili555!!

    Now I've got a really weird problem:
    Sometimes, spontaneously my whole system freezes It only happens if I use the stick. The time varies too. Maybe somebody has an idea??

    Here are my essential stats:
