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

    Here is hopefully the information you have asked for. Although my situation has now changed some what. I have now managed to get the card working temporarily again, after removing ndiswrapper and using the System -> Administration -> Network tool to configure the card. Unless I use this I can't get the card to configure.

    In the how to it says you must take the interface down before configuring it with the iwpriv commands, but when I do this it complains that the interface is down and it won't do it while the it is down, bring the interface back up and it appears to work until you do iwconfig and its completely ignored all the commands...

    Code:
    $sudo iwlist scan

    This is a bit screwy as I've had to use the Network tool which has edited this file.

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

    Does anyone know if this guide works with the RaLink RT2600 chipset?

    EDIT: This guide works perfectly for me on Gutsy without a hitch! Thanks!

    Thanks for this guide!
    Worked on Feisty for me.

    I had 2 problems:

    - I didnt know where to find the windows driver for the wifi card; somewhen i noticed i could just copy the folder with the driver from my windows partition (C:/Program Files/Ralink/RT6x Wireless LAN Card/Installer/WINXP/) to the ubuntu partition and go on.

    - I wasnt able to install ndiswrapper from CD, so i downloaded the .debs from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...n/ndiswrapper/
    I needed a version for Feisty and it was the 1.38 i think

    Now it works and im happy
    NEVER use a command given to you before asking and knowing exactly what it does. Make sure you know what it is that you're telling your system to do before doing it; some commands can be very harmful to your system or leave you vulnerable to attack.

    I'm not sure how to do the blacklisting part..

    I have a linksys WUSB54GS v1. Any suggestions?

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

    I did install the x64 drivers using ndiswrapper and got:

    Interface doesn't accept private ioctl...
    set (8BE2): Invalid argument
    Failed to bring up wlan0.

    I ran out of ideas

    I guess I'll end up buying another wireless card and smashing the rt2500

    blacklisting is to put the drivers in a list so they are prevented from being used by the system, this way you won't have driver conflicts.

    OK, so you have now removed 'ndiswrapper' and use the native Ralink driver. What's your question then? I have little experience with Ralink drivers per se, as I use 'ndiswrapper'...

    Great, thanks for letting me know. What driver have you blacklisted? And what adapter have you got?

    What chipset does this model use... any idea? Please post:
    sudo lshw -C network

    No problem. Let's look at it again... So you are on 64-bit Ubuntu, am I right? And you have downloaded the 64-bit version of the wireless driver as well?

    Please post the following:
    sudo ndiswrapper -l
    sudo iwlist scan
    sudo lshw -C network
