    HP ProBook 4540s Ralink 3290 - Wireless not working after updates

    Hy guys, i have a problem with this wireless card drivers.

    I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

    Wireless worked pretty well (except known disconnects caused by rt2800pci driver) until ubuntu updated last week.

    After that, wireless dissapeared from Network Manager. I ran lsmod and i saw rt2800pci was not loaded anymore.

    Then i installed rt3290sta which almost works, but the problem is it causes complete freeze when i open NetBeans (don't know why NetBeans cause this freeze, but i am sure the 3290sta causes it, i experienced exactly same behaviour on previus ubuntu installation after i installed custom wireless drivers).

    Because of this freezes i told me that i should return to rt2800pci driver.

    I removed rt3290sta using depmod -v, i blacklisted it, removed rt2800pci from blacklist, i added them with depmod rt2800pci, added them to /etc/modules so they are loaded at startup, they appear when i use lsmod but there is no network interface.

    What i found is that running "lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net" find my network adapter but with no driver "attached"

    I will post soon the results of lspci, lsmod, depmod -l etc.
