    Exactly. Let's dig deeper before we abandon the tricky rt3573sta. Please run and post:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    modinfo rt3573sta | grep 9012
    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e rt3
    Thanks.

    iwconfig

    ra0 Ralink STA ESSID:"GY4E4" Nickname:"RT2870STA"

    lo no wireless extensions.

    modinfo rt3573sta | grep 9012

    alias: usb:v0846p9012d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*in*

    dmesg | grep -e wlan -e rt3
    nothing hapens, just starts a new line

    I don't know if this is helpful but after deleting and reinstalling everything and following the outlines earlier I could connect to the wireless using my card but everything froze when I opened firefox and tried to navigate away from the home screen. So I don't know if that indicates a connection problem or what.

    Thanks again, you're awesome!

    Re: WNDA4100 on 64 bit

    I ain't awesome yet; I don't have it solved! Let's see all of dmesg after a clean boot. As it is quite lengthy, paste it here and give me the link in your reply: http://paste.ubuntu.com/
    Code:
    dmesg
    As I am sure you saw by reading the 17 page (!!!) thread, this device is quite tricky and success is not at all sure.

    That is also a whole lot of horrible, nasty errors, such as:

    I downloaded and built the driver on my own 3.8.0-30 64-bit system, as well as a slight revision on Realtek's (aka Mediatek) site. It built with warnings aplenty. We have built a mechanism with so many missing parts that it is no wonder it doesn't work correctly.

    I then turned my attention to the excellent resource here: http://wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_WNDA4100 It says, in part:
    and future support in rt2800usb (juhosg's patchset adding support, may be in by k3.12)
    I interpret k3.12 to mean kernel version 3.12.

    Encouraged, I downloaded the backported drivers here: http://drvbp1.linux-foundation.org/~...tml/backports/ I built the latest development release with NO errors and NO warnings (!!!); however, alas, coverage for this device is not yet included in rt2800usb.
    chili@Think410:~/backports-20130802$ modinfo drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00/rt2800usb.ko | grep 9012
    zippo-nothing-go fish
    The nature of development releases is that the device might be included in a few days...or a few weeks...or a few months.

    As I said in the thread we both came from, I currently know of no way to get this device working in 13.04 and 64-bit. My best suggestion is either install the 3.2 kernel version of 12.04 LTS and 32-bit and compile the driver there or head on over to your favorite on-line retailer and buy a Linux supported device.

    I regret that I haven't a more productive answer.

    That's ok, thank you for your help and sticking with this tricky situation. I am on my way to find a new adapter. I stand by the statement that you're awesome!

    I was happy to help. I'm sorry we couldn't (yet!) find a solution.
