    Re: my wireless is not working on ubuntu 12.04 lts.

    Hi,

    please show the terminal (CTRL+ALT+T) output of
    Code:
    uname -a
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    Installation instructions here:

    http://forum.ubuntuusers.de/post/3473742/

    Unfortunately, this driver only works until kernel 3.2.0-31 in the 2,4GHz mode.

    Install the driver as linked for 64bit. Blacklist the current driver and reboot.

    ubilli, Welcome to the forums!

    Download the proprietary driver from here : http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downl...il.php?sn=5001

    Copy it to your desktop. Then open a terminal (ctrl + alt + T) and run the following commands in it (press 'Tab' key wherever I have written <Tab> to auto complete the file/path names) -
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    tar xjf 2011<tab>
    This will extract the contents of the file to a directory of same name. Keep the terminal open and go to the os/linux directory (folder) within the extracted directory, and open the config.mk file in it.

    Goto line no. 31 in the file (HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=n), and change 'n' to 'y', so it looks like -
    HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y

    Now return to the terminal and run-
    Code:
    cd 2011<tab>
    make
    sudo make install
    Last, to blacklist the existing driver, run the following command (you may copy paste) -
    Code:
    echo -e "\nblacklist rt2800pci\nblacklist rt2x00lib\nblacklist rt2800lib\nblacklist rt2x00pci" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    This will add the following lines in your /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file -
    blacklist rt2800pci
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    blacklist rt2800lib
    blacklist rt2x00pci
    ..which you can also add manually, the command I suggested is only to do that in one go

    Once all this is done, try to connect to your wireless network. Reboot if required. Post back if still having problems.

    Even if it gets connected and everything looks fine, please post back the result of (after the wireless is connected) -
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i rt28 | tail -40
    This is just to verify if there are excessive debug messages as has been reported by many users.

    @ ubilli,
    It seems that you are probably copy-pasting the terminal output to a text file, then opening the file in windows to copy-paste the contents here.
    If I am correct, it is better to directly attach the file instead of copy-pasting contents from windows. Because as you can notice, windows does not understand the 'new line' format of linux, thus creating a mess of text

    Alternatively, when you save the file in Ubuntu, choose "Line Ending" to "Windows" (located at the bottom of the save dialogue box in gedit). It will make it windows compatible. Then copy-paste it within 'Code' tags as told in quoted parts above.

    Alternatively, the dkms driver and the rt2860sta.dat files are attached.
