    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 beta2 issues with Ralink RT2800 PCI loses connection

    Weird... I tried just now and saw the same error.
    I've uploaded my local copy of the wireless driver for you here temporarily.

    http://ubuntuone.com/7gQxrha6oUiVwPzaXRQFIh

    That's the one I have that I used in my original solution post. Let me know if this helps.

    I think i got the same problem with the extraction and i think i concluded that it was mislabelled as a bz2-file even though it weren't. Extract with "tar -xvf filename" and it should work.

    neilhuang: YOU ARE THE MAN !!!

    One of my friend helped me with the ralink driver: he actually decompressed the file with 7zip, under windoze...

    Once I had the driver, I followed your instructions: the instability problem with the WIFI N mode was fixed instantly !! And to my surprise, I also noted that the quality of the wireless link greatly improved after I installed the RT2860STA module. Before, the maximum link quality I was getting was 50% and now I am almost all the time at 96% ! Impressive !!

    Thanks a lot for your help !!!

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 beta2 issues with Ralink RT2800 PCI loses connection

    On a kernel upgrade you will indeed need to repeat step 9, then steps 12-15. I just upgraded to -36 and wireless did not work at all on reboot until I repeated step 9. Steps 12-15 to keep it. You do need to remember to change code references to the kernel (in my case -36)you now have

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 beta2 issues with Ralink RT2800 PCI loses connection

    Hi, I'm a new member (from Italy, so please forgive my language errors), using Ubuntu from 2 years, but i'm a newbie with problem of network (and with many other things).
    My release is Rarin Ringtail, and I've got the problem of ralink2800.
    I'm trying to follow the guide at the first page of this thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...9#post11858549).
    I can follow the guide up to point 5, but I don't understand when the guide says: "run make from the prompt".
    Which command should I write on terminal?
    According to "man make" I tried to run "make" in the folder Download/2010_07_16_RT2860_Linux_STA_v2.4.0.0/os/linux, but the output is:

    "make: *** Nessun obiettivo specificato e nessun makefile trovato. Arresto."
    Translated: "No target specified and no makefile found. Arrest.".

    It's strange, because there are two makefile in that folder: "Makefile4" and "Makefile6".
    Can you help me to understand?


    PS: I extracted the archive in "Download" folder.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 beta2 issues with Ralink RT2800 PCI loses connection

    Please make sure that you've downloaded the correct Linux Drivers, not Windows.
    Once you've extracted the contents, you should see a file called "Makefile" inside of that directory. If you don't, you may have downloaded the wrong package.

    I just checked the website again. It seems that they've made things a little more confusing, but should still be there. The driver is under GNU so I've posted it here.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 beta2 issues with Ralink RT2800 PCI loses connection

    Forgive me for my late answer.
    The driver I donwloaded was on "Linux" section, I'm sure of it.
    But I checked in "connection information" menu, and i saw that the driver rt2800pci was already installed in my release (Ubuntu 13.04).
    Because of the connection problem was persisting, i run "lspci" to see the correct driver i should install on my pc.
    The output is:

    Now I'm not sure if the driver rt2800pci is correct for my wi-fi card.
    So i downloaded another driver: "2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO_v2 .bz2.bz2".

    Do you think it's the correct driver for my wi-fi card?
    My problem is that, following the istructions of the file "readme", I'm not able to configure it...
    And another dubt is that the problem is in the kernel as described in this page: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1171281

    In any case, i'll put here the text of the file "readme_STA_pci":

    MORE INFORMATION
    =================================================================================
    If you want for rt2860 driver to auto-load at boot time:
    A) choose ra0 for first RT2860 WLAN card, ra1 for second RT2860 WLAN card, etc.
       
    B) create(edit) 'ifcfg-ra0' file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/,      
       edit( or add the line) in /etc/modules.conf:
           alias ra0 rt2860sta
       
    C) edit(create) the file /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ra0  
       DEVICE='ra0'
       ONBOOT='yes'     
    
    
    NOTE:
       if you use dhcp, add this line too .
        BOOTPROTO='dhcp'
    
    *D) To ease the Default Gateway setting, 
        add the line
        GATEWAY=x.x.x.x   
        in /etc/sysconfig/network
       
    =======================================================================
    Dongle/Clone Features:
    ======================
    A) Dongle mode: 
           Provides a 1-to-N MAC address mapping mechanism such that more than one PC behind the STA 
           can transparently connect to the AP.
    
    B) Clone mode:
        Provides a 1-to-1 MAC address mapping mechanism. 
        STA can use own MAC as SA MAC or 
                use user desired MAC as SA MAC or
                use source MAC of first packet coming from wired device as SA MAC.
        NOTE: In this mode, only the PC who own the specified MAC can connect to the AP.
    
     
    C) Hybrid mode(Dongle+Clone):
        Provides a 1-to-N MAC address mapping mechanism such that more than one PC behind the STA 
           can transparently connect to the AP.
        STA can use own MAC as SA MAC or 
                use user desired MAC as SA MAC or
                use source MAC of first packet coming from wired device as SA MAC.
    
    D) Please refer to "Config STA to link as dongle mode..." in iwpriv_usage.txt for releated commands.
    Can you please help me to understand how to configure this driver?

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 beta2 issues with Ralink RT2800 PCI loses connection

    Network controller: Ralink corp. RT5390 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe
    Not sure if this card is compatible. I'm not an hardware chipset expert... but the mdoel seems different enough.
