    Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't recognize wireless

    Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me fix this problem. I'm installing Lubuntu 12.04 as a fresh install on a brand new machine. I've gotten as far as getting it installed and getting the video drivers to work (they didn't out of the box). My wired connection is working just fine (using it to write this now). However, I can not, for the life of me, get the wireless card to work. I've been trying to get this to work for a couple of days and don't know what else to do at this point. Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Also, I'm a complete noob as this is my first time working with any form of linux. I've included output concerning the hardware in question below. Thanks again.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't recognize wireless

    Hi it looks like you have a conflicting
    driver loaded...rt2860sta
    the rt2800pci drivers looks like it will work best for you.

    hadaka@the-beach:~$ modinfo rt2800pci | grep 3593
    alias: pci:v00001814d00003593sv*sd*bc*sc*i*

    so lets bounce some stuff around and toss the rt2860 into the blackhole.
    please do..
    Code:
    echo "blacklist rt2860sta" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    sudo modprobe -rfv rt2860sta
    sudo modprobe -rf rt2800pci
    sudo modprobe rt2800pci
    thanks.

    Thanks for your help Hadaka! I've done what you said to do. Should the wireless have started working or is there something else I need to do?

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't recognize wireless

    Here ya go.. Sorry I didn't know how to do that before.


    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv rt2860sta
    rmmod /lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt2860sta.ko
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -v rt2800pci
    no output. Just returns to the command line,
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i rt2800
    [ 12.034996] rt2800pci 0000:01:00.0: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
    [ 12.035019] rt2800pci 0000:01:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
    [ 12.035045] rt2800pci 0000:01:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
    [ 12.037037] phy0 -> rt2800_init_eeprom: Error - Invalid RT chipset detected.
    [ 12.037144] rt2800pci 0000:01:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
    Hope this is better.
