    So basically we're simply adding our device to the supported devices list:
    + {USB_DEVICE(0x13B1,0x003B)}, /* Cisco LinkSys AE3000 */ (in rtusb_dev_id.patch)

    All the other patches are only bugfixes, to allow this driver to work with new kernels, to rename network name to wlan0, etc"
    Hmm.. that "{USB_DEVICE(0x13B1,0x003B)}" part may be the key. Let me know if you need help with applying the patches/changes manually.

    I am working on making it easier anyway. Will post back soon I hope.

    To be honest, I'm not really sure how to start on this one.

    Just wait then till I post back the complete steps with an automation script. I already have a dirty way to do that, just trying to make it cleaner (at the moment, learning advanced usage of 'patch' command to fit the existing patches).

    I would suggest you also add:
    Code:

    ...to rtusb_dev_id.c.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 doesn't recognize wireless

    Thanks Chili but I have no idea how to even get started on this. I'm not sure what to do with the patches or even what I should do first. Do I install the driver and then run the patches? If so, how does one install the patches? There's a file called rt3593.install. Do I need to run that file? If so, how do I go about doing that?

    Almost done.

    Just going to try the package in a VM (have to make some room for it too ), then will post back with instructions.

    One thing that still doesn't look good is that the device in question is a PCI one, while we are defining the modalias as USB.

    I got a very useful link from our friend Hadaka about this : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Modalias , but that does not make it clear (or I didn't read it thoroughly) whether this difference can be ignored or not.

    When trying to define the modalias as "PCI_DEVICE", I get errors during compilation. So, for now, I've just left it as USB_DEVICE, which works.

    So.. (due to space crisis on my hdd and my world-class snail-speed) it may take me a couple more hours to post back the links and instructions for building what I could manage so far.

    I am ready and willing to work on it further as and if required.
