    Re: Make the wireless working with DWA-525 Ralink5360

    Hi,

    I've been battling to also get the DWA-525 Ralink5360 working on 12.04 Server.

    In Row225's last post, he mentioned that he found a an already compiled driver and that it worked 100%.

    I am very new to Linux and compiling, etc. Would you therefore kindly let me know of the exact steps to take to download and install the driver?

    In the site refered to by Row225, namely, http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/comp...eless/2012/07/, I find 3 driver versions namely, compat-wireless-2012-07-03.tar.bz2, compat-wireless-2012-07-03-pc.tar.bz2 and compat-wireless-2012-07-03-p.tar.bz2. Which of these would be the correct, compiled driver?

    What steps do I take to install the compiled driver?

    Thank you so much for any assistance.

    I'm also looking for a solution to make the wireless card working with Ubuntu 12.10. Please let me know how to use the pre-compiled compat-wireless package.

    Hi,

    It's very simple!

    You have to just download the source from here: http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/comp....6.6-1.tar.bz2

    Step1: unpack the tar ball
    Code:
    cd <where you downloaded and unpacked>/compat-wireless-2012-11-06/
    Step2:
    Code:
    sudo su
    Step3:
    Code:
    ./scripts/driver-select rt2x00
    Step4:
    Code:
    modprobe rt2800pci
    The WiFi card will detect wireless networks!

    You may wish to add how to unpack the tarball; make and make install to your HOWTO. Also, please note that build-essential and linux-headers-generic are required.

    Re: Make the wireless working with DWA-525 Ralink5360

    Ok, so I have a DWA-525 Ralink5360 wireless NIC and I've been searching and trying methods all through the ubuntuforums and otherwise, namely:

    http://steveswinsburg.wordpress.com/...-ubuntu-10-04/
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1559576
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...76&postcount=4
    etc...

    The final thing I tried was this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=12343622
    There was even a post telling to edit some lines to include rt5360 and I checked the latest versions and they were already there...

    The final result is that ubuntu 12.04 is not even displaying the wireless card be it in the notification area nor through the iwconfig
    lshw -C network:

    That seems to me like some sort of error in the driver itself...do I use one of the older ones in http://www.orbit-lab.org/kernel/compat-wireless/ ?

    Please advise.

    It seems that the driver doesn't like the chipset! Let's do a full diagnostic workup and see if we can fix it. Please post:
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep 0280
    lsb_release -d
    modinfo rt2800pci | head -n3
    Thanks.

    /lib/modules/3.2.0-35-generic/updates/drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt2800pci.ko
    The updates in the file location indicates it's a newer version than the in-kernel driver; probably one you compiled. I wonder if the process of adding device IDs to the code went wrong. Let's try a different approach:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-cw-3.6-precise-generic
    Reboot and let us have your report.

    Re: Make the wireless working with DWA-525 Ralink5360

    Heh, this requires an internet connection from the problematic desktop

    I downloaded the package from my laptop and tried installing it using gdebi but I'm guessing a backport's use is through internet updates...

    I can try to get hold of a usb modem but if there is another way, please advise.

    P.S. Thank you very much for your help

    Re: Make the wireless working with DWA-525 Ralink5360

    You can install it from a download transferred on a USB key easily. You need both the -generic as well as the package matching your running kernel; i.e. 3.2.0-35-generic. Therefor, you'd need the packages linux-backports-modules-cw-3.6-precise-generic and linux-backports-modules-cw-3.6-3.2.0-35-generic. You should then be able to install both with gdebi or, if you are old-skool, from a terminal. Assuming you drag-n-dropped them to your desktop:
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    sudo dpkg -i linux-backports*.deb
    There may be some missing dependencies. If so, you will get the notification; something like 'linux-backports depends on some_package, but some_package is not installed so leaving unconfigured.' If so, go get the missing dependency and install it and try backports again. It is eminently do-able.

    Be sure you get and install the packages appropriate to your architecture; either 32- or 64-bit. Find out with:
    Code:
    arch
    If 'arch' returns i686, then you need 32-bit packages, shown in the attached as i386 (I know, it's a puzzle.)

    Post back if you get stuck.
