Re: Ralink RT5370 USB wi-fi not working
Yes. The current message log was read and any instances of the pattern 'wlan' or 'rename' or 'rt2' were printed in the terminal. In this case, there are none and so none were printed. In many cases, not only are the specific messages informative, but absence is informative as well. It tells us the driver rt2800usb didn't load automagically. I wonder if you have blacklisted it. Let's load it and see what happens:
dmesg | grep -e wlan -e rename -e rt2
When inputtting this I get returned to the prompt. I assume something is done in the background.
Now we hope we see some clues as to why rt2800usb is not performing as expected.
sudo modprobe rt2800usb
dmesg | grep -e wlan -e rt2
