    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    package 'linux-headers-3.5.0-17-generic' is not installed and no information is available
    Very interesting, especially in light of this:
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
    libjasper1:i386 libjbig0:i386 libjpeg-turbo8:i386 libjpeg8:i386 linux-headers-3.5.0-17
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    Clearly, in order to compile the driver, linux-headers matching the kernel version you are compiling the driver for are required. linux-headers-generic can't be installed correctly, no matter what it says here:
    linux-headers-generic is already the newest version.
    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.5.0-17-generic
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-headers-generic
    Now try to compile the driver again.

    I have seen this missing headers mess a few times here on the forum and I'd love to know how it happens. I can't seem to trigger it myself.

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    Ok, the WLAN card seems to be working.

    I first restarted my computer (habit I guess). While it was rebooting I unplugged my cat5 and when the computer reloaded I connected to my wireless network. It connected for about 60seconds, in that time I tried to open Pidgin, and this forum so I could congratulate you again. Neither application seemed to be connecting, I was promptly disconnected from my network. I tried to reconnect and my computer froze.

    I restarted again..it connected to my wireless network and I got this error before it froze again:

    Connection Activation Failed
    (4) Did not receive reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired or the network connection was broken
    While yes you got the card working, do you have any familiarity with this? Since my network is useable on my windows boot I have a feeling this is a settings problem somewhere in ubuntu.

    Let's see:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep -e rt2 -e rt5
    dmesg | grep -e rt2 -e rt5
    Thanks.

    I suspect a competing driver. Did you complete the driver compile or did the wireless connect magically?

    ....Yes??? I let the command line do its thing until text stopped scrolling and it asked me for the next command. It was at this point that I did the restart...did I goof?

    I dont know if this is relevant, but for the time being since it seemed to be freezing my computer, I turned the 'enable wireless' option to unchecked.

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    A conflict, indeed. Please do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist rt2800pci" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit
    Reboot and tell us how it's working.

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    I did those commands, restarted my computer and had the same issues...it connected much faster, but when i tried to open google.com ...it quickly disconnected me from my network, and came with the same message as before...

    I checked my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf just in case the 5390 was blacklisted...it wasnt... i again did the check from before:

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    I honestly haven't any idea if rt5390sta or rt2800pci will work better. The only way to find out is to try first one and then the other. Obviously, you downloaded and compiled rt5390sta because rt2800pci wasn't working as expected, so let's eliminate it first. We see from your readings that it is properly blacklisted but loads anyway! Let's try a bit harder:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo "blacklist rt2800lib" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    echo "blacklist rt2x00lib" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    echo "blacklist rt2x00pci" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    exit
    Now reboot and run and post:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep -e rt2 -e rt5
    We hope and we pray that rt2800 and its entourage is not loading now.

    I see you have a file /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf. It is for the driver iwlwifi that covers Intel devices. I doubt it is doing anything to help you. I suggest you remove it:
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
