    RT3290STA wireless stopped working

    Hi all, i have previously followed these instructions

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2104690

    Each time i have updated i have had to re run some of the commands, however on my latest update, i cannot find anyway to get the wireless card working again.

    Is there anything i can do to get this working again? USB tethering with my phone will only last so long :/

    Thanks in advance,
    Josh

    p.s. Laptop is a HP Envy M6 and running 12.04 iirc

    Hi, copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
     wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a file named (wireless-info.txt, or wireless-info.txt.tar.gz) in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back, click on the paper clip and attach the wireless-info.tar.gz file as a zip file.

    If you do not have ethernet either then follow the directions at this link for running the script without internet.

    Thats basically what im doing at the moment is swithing to an older kernel version on boot up. Its a pain in the ass i know, but atleast its something for now until we find some kind of work around.

    Done! I ran the script and found my Network controller [0280]: Ralink corp. RT3290 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe [1814:3290] I searched the forum for this controller. I found the instructions and managed to install the driver. Now I just have to lock the latest kernel version and this will prevent driver being erased with the next update. Thanks Wild Man! God bless you all! Dhira
