    No, I got the latest CVS snapshot (see link at my previous post). If you download and install that it should work fine (I am now connected using gutsy and RT2500).

    As for networkmanager I don't know, I don't use it. wlanasistant works fine, and
    Code:
    iwlist scan
    gives me a list of access points. So try downloading the new driver it should work if you have the same card.

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards [Gutsy Gibbon]

    Please check "Manual Configuration..." and confirm that the "wlan0' interfaces is enabled.
    That's the first really odd thing. When I select "Manual Configuration..." the window that pops up doesn't even list my wireless connection! It only lists "Wired Connection" (which is enabled) and "Modem Connection" (which is not enabled, probably because I don't have a modem connected to my PC).

    Second please do a scan and post the results if possible:
    When I execute sudo iwlist scan I get the following:

    Code:
    lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    eth0     Interface doesn't support scanning.
    Does the scan yield any results & do you see your network? And what happens when you restart the network:
    No I don't see my network. When I take the network down (sudo ifdown -v wlan0) I get the following:

    Code:
    ifdown: interface wlan0 not configured
    When I try to bring it up (sudo ifup -v wlan0) I get the following (bear with me - I am typing this all out from another computer):

    Code:
    Configuring interface wlan0=wlan0 (inet)
    run-parts --verbose /etc/network/if-pre-up.d
    run-parts: executing /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wireless-tools
    wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

    Any ideas? What could possibly be keeping my interface from even being detected? Is there anywhere other than /etc/network/interfaces that this kind of information is specified?

    Please post the contents of:
    sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces
    And:
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper
    Also again:
    sudo ndiswrapper -l

    Here's the contents of /etc/network/interfaces:

    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    auto eht0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    
    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    Here's the contents of /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper:

    Code:
    alias wlan0 ndiswrapper
    Here's the output of sudo ndiswrapper -l:

    Code:
    rt2500usb : driver installed
                  device (13B1:000D) present (alternate driver: rt2500usb)
    Again, thanx much for all of this help.

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards [Gutsy Gibbon]

    Sorry for the double post, but I was just looking around the ndiswrapper install and noticed that in my /etc/ndiswrapper/rt2500usb directory I have 3 conf files. They are named as follows:

    13B1:000D.F.conf
    13B1:0011.F.conf
    13B1:001A.F.conf

    The first one matches the hardware ID for the WUSB54Gv4 returned by lusb. I'm mot sure what the others are. I at one time tried installing some other windows drivers - but they were removed when I had no success with them (their entries no longer show in /etc/ndiswrapper). Are these (extra?) conf files potentially causing the problem?

    --edit--
    Well I copied the 2 mismatched files (13B1:0011.F.conf and 13B1:001A.F.conf) to a temporary directory and rebooted. Made no difference.

    Ok, which driver did you blacklist and how? Could you post the relevant section please?

    EDIT:
    Are you on Gutsy or Feisty?

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards [Gutsy Gibbon]

    I'm on Gutsy (amd64). My adapter was working under Feisty. It crapped out after I did the upgrade.

    I blacklisted the drivers by adding them to the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file. Originally I only blacklisted the rt2500usb driver, but as of now I have blacklisted all of the drivers listed in the original HOWTO:

    rt2500usb
    rt2500pci
    rt2500
    rt2570
    rt73usb
    rt73pci
    rt73
    rt2x00usb
    rt2x00lib

    Also, I looked into those other device IDs. I'm not sure about 13B1:001A, but 13B1:0011 is reported as the device ID for the Linksys WUSB54Gv4 as is 13B1:000D (which is what lsusb identifies my adapter with). In any case, as moving those (seemingly) additional conf files to a temporary directory did not make a difference, I moved them back to their original place: /etc/ndiswrapper/rt2500usb.

    Incidentally, I also took a look at the output from lsmod. ndiswrapper is listed as a loaded module, and there do not seem to be any other modules loaded that look like they might pertain to wireless networking adapters.

    When you installed the driver file (.INF) where there any other files present e.g. .CAB or similar?

    It might relate to the fact that you are on a 64-bit machine. If we cannot find a solution here I'll have to refer you to the 64-bit section... They might know a solution.

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards [Gutsy Gibbon]

    When I installed the driver, the files in the directory from which I executed the ndiswrapper command were: rt2500usb.cat, rt2500usb.inf, and rt2500usb.sys.

    I'm wondering if it's a a 64 bit issue as well. But AMD64 is a fairly common platform, and the WUSB54Gv4 is a common adapter. If this were a problem I'd have thought it would be well flagged by now. Maybe I've overlooked it? Can anyone browsing this thread confirm that they managed to get a Linksys WUSB54Gv4 working in Gutsy on the amd64 platform?

    I am tempted to think this has to do with the "ndiswrapper" port to the 64-bit environment. I cannot offer much more support at this stage as I am clueless as to what the issue is.
