    Sabrent PCI G802 issues

    Hey everybody,
    Well I bought this wireless card because alot of people said it worked out of the box and it almost worked...
    Ubuntu recognizes it and the wireless module is activated I just can't seem to scan for networks or connect to them... So I am listing some outputs for you guys and hopefully there is an easy fix.

    When I do lspci: I get the following for the card itself
    05:02.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g PCI

    When I do ifconfig: I get the following
    wlan1 Link encap: Ethernet HWaddr 00.0c:0a:42:22:d1
    UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

    When I do iwconfig:
    wlan1 IEEE 802.11bg ESSIDff/any
    Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=8 dBm
    Retry long limit:7 RTS thrff Fragment thrff
    Power Managementff

    When I do lsmod and find the chipset I get:
    rt61pci 18920 0
    crc_itu_t 1371 1 rt61pci
    rt2x00pci 5995 1 rt61pci
    rt2x00lib 27509 2 rt62pci,rt2x00pci
    led_class 2864 1 rt2x00lib
    mac80211 205146 2 rt2x00pci,rt2x00lib
    cfg80211 126517 2 rt2x00lib,mac80211
    eeprom_93cx6 1333 1 rt61pci

    Then when I do lshw -C netowrk for the wireless I get
    description: Wireless interface
    product: RT2561/RT62 802.11g PCI
    vendor: RaLink
    physical id: 2

    configuration: boradcast=yes driver=rt61pci multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bg
    resources: irq:20 memory:fe9f8000-fe9fffff

    When I do iwlist scan it says
    wlan1 No scan results

    I share your anguish Clgy15. I recently installed a Sabrent PCI 802N with the same results. Have you resolved your problem yet? If so, I would certainly like to hear how.

    Looks like I'm not the only one. I, too, cannot get my PCI 802N to work. trying to compile driver RT2860, but all I get is errors. Have either of you solved your problems?
