    Re: no wireless icon / option after updating ubuntu 12.10

    Try to add the product and vendor ID to the driver rt2800usb:
    Code:
    echo 'install rt2800usb modprobe --ignore-install rt2800usb ; /bin/echo "2001 3c1e" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2800usb/new_id' | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/rt2800usb.conf
    This is one line, you better copy/paste it. Reload the driver:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv b43
    sudo modprobe -v rt2800usb
    Check:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    lsmod
    dmesg | grep rt2
    rfkill list
    sudo iwlist scan
    To uninstall the wrong driver:
    Code:
    sudo dkms remove -m Ralink_5370sta -v 2.5.0.3 --all

    Please show after rebooting:
    Code:
    lsmod
    egrep 'rt2|b43|rt5|rt7' /etc/modprobe.d/*
    cat /etc/modules
    You added the ID of the stick 2001:3c1E to the native driver rt2800usb, when this stick is plugged in.

    Open the file:
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    and remove the line:
    Code:
    blacklist rt2800usb
    Save and close. After that open this file:
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modules
    and remove b43. Save, close and reboot. Or instead of rebooting, load the driver:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv b43
    sudo modprobe rt2800usb
    Check again:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    dmesg | grep rt2
    sudo iwlist scan
    rfkill list

    I had this SAME PROBLEM AND FIXED IT! Stop using the Windows/Proprietary driver and use the generic one included with Ubuntu. BAM! Should work....
