    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    Code:
    jgomez2@SJ:~$ lsmod | grep -e rt2 -e rt5

    And I trustingly took your advice with the removal of that file.

    Code:

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    Ah, ha! I see it! Please do:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Change this line:
    Code:
    blackist rt2800pci
    To this:
    Code:
    blacklist rt2800pci
    Proofread, save and close gedit and reboot.

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    Unsurprisingly you were correct:

    Code:
    jgomez2@SJ:~$ lsmod | grep -e rt2 -e rt5
    rt5390sta            1456505  1
    However, when I rebooted without the ethernet, I got to my desktop and not too long after my screen went black with an extensive list of what looked like errors on it and froze...so i had to hold down the power button to hard shutdown, rebooted, and the second time when it went black i took a few pictures. Since my monitors are widescreen to get the whole image would take a while but here is the clear one.

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    If you reboot with the ethernet connected, can you remove the driver?
    Code:
    cd Desktop/2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO
    sudo su
    make uninstall
    modprobe -r rt5390sta
    exit
    I fear we must then troubleshoot rt2800pci.

    Should I go ahead and un-blacklist the rt2800?

    Yes, please and all its cousins, too. Then do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2800pci
    Does it connect? Freeze? Etc.?

    It did not freeze. I removed the modules, added rt2800, restarted with the ethernet...works fine. Restarted with ethernet unplugged, works fine. However now there is absolutely zero WLAN connectivity. At least we got the black screen gone

    Before I take a powerful tranquilizer, are you saying the wireless works and connects with the ethernet connected but not otherwise? How are you sure it's the wireless connection and not ethernet? Does wlan0 have an IP address?

    Re: Persisting Ralink 5392 Wireless driver issues

    NO TRANQs!!!

    To be more clear. After we did modprobe rt5390sta the wireless did come on. It did work....when the ethernet was plugged in. On windows I have had trouble in the past using LAN/WLAN when the other is active. Which is why I would restart my comp without the ethernet in order to test the wireless. It is when I would restart without the cable that the comp would go black with that error. When I would plug in the ethernet and restart, it would work fine.

    Now, without rt5390sta it is getting nothing.
