    Well, we can check that. Please post output of

    Code:
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Also, did you reboot after running those commands?

    Don't know that it will make any difference at all but you should copy the block you added into the end of the file- make it look like this:

    Code:
    # This file lists those modules which we don't want to be loaded by
    # alias expansion, usually so some other driver will be loaded for the
    # device instead.

    Hi, now run
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2860sta
    Then see if the wireless fires up.
