    Have you not deployed the 64-bit version of the driver? Would that solve the problem perhaps?

    As far as I am aware there is no 64 bit driver for my device. I should have a bit more of a look though. Doesn't Ndswrapper convert 32 to 64 as well?

    Actually there is an abundance of them. I followed your how to with the 64 bit windows driver and all works complete with hibernate/suspend.

    I've an MSI 670 Notebook with a RaLink RT61 card (64bits ubuntu)

    I've tried to install the Windows drivers following this tutorial and I've tried a 32bits XP driver, a 64bits Vista driver, they've all installed correctly, but when I reboot the wlan0 device dissapear, so I'm guessing it doesn't work.

    Anybody has made a RaLink Wireless card work with 64bits ubuntu?

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    I'm assuming everyone else had the same experience I did, and that Hardy has not, in fact, solved the problem. Certainly, the LiveCD has zero connectivity. However, I got an email update from Launchpad saying the following:
    Marking this "Fix Released" as Stefan's patch is available in linux-
    backports-modules:

    linux-backports-modules-2.6.24 (2.6.24-16.14) hardy; urgency=low

    [Stefan Bader]

    * Added rt2x00 driver from serialmonkey.org
    - LP: #134660
    Is this true? If so, how do I get a hold of the "fix" before do a fresh install of Hardy - after which install I won't have a connection at all. I realize this is kind of off-topic, and if I were smarter or braver I'd just get ndiswrapper up and running as per Wieman's tutorial. Sadly, I'm a slow-witted coward who's waited two releases for someone else to fix my problems, and would like to know if it's finally been done. Thanks for any help anyone can give.

    Cool Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    Can someone help me with which card I have? I've installed ndiswrapper already. I have the card...
    Code:
    Realtek RTL8101E Family PCI-E
    Realtek RTL8187B Wireless 802.2.11G
    And from this list...
    Code:
    rt2500usb
    rt2500pci
    rt2500
    rt2570
    rt73usb
    rt73pci
    rt73

    Good question. Since this is a Realtek wireless adapter, I have no clue really. But you can run this & post the results:
    sudo lshw -C network
    The last line ought to tell you which driver is being used.

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    I have a D-Link g122 USB adapter, rev b1 (rt2570/rt2500usb). To some extent, this works out of the box on Gutsy (speed/stability are non-existent, network-manager goes nuts, and then there's the whole 'ew, no WPA2' thing). I managed to get things working flawlessly using the ndiswrapper method and manual configuration in the past and was using that for months without an issue, until two days ago. I booted into WinXP for a bit, and my adapter's refused to work with ndiswrapper since. This has happened in the past but it's usually resolved with 2-3 reboots. I've seen a few others with the same problem in the past, all using USB adapters, all running into it after using Windows.

    wlan1's listed in ifconfig but it's not associating with my AP, and the LEDs aren't lighting up. I'm relatively sure that the hardware's fine b/c, while it's not working with ndiswrapper, it has since worked with XP and Ubuntu x4 (Hardy Live CD -> Hardy install -> Feisty Live CD -> fresh Feisty install, all using the native driver. It seemed to be okay under Hardy, but I really dislike Hardy for some reason). I tried ndiswrapper on my fresh install (using the exact same method and drivers I used original installation) and am having the same issue. rt2500usb, rt2750 and rt2x00 are blacklisted.

    ndiswrapper -l output
    Code:
    netrtusb : driver installed
            device (2001:3C00) present (alternate driver: rt2500usb)
    ifconfig output:

    post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant
    If anyone has any ideas, I'd be grateful for the help. Right now, my options seem to be: go wired at the expense of my other wireless devices; use WinXP, or rereinstall Gutsy and suffer with the native drivers. None of these are really viable, let alone appealing. This is doubly frustrating because I only went into XP so I could back things up and totally remove the native install. If I was slightly more paranoid, I'd say it knew and decided to sabatoge me.

    This is so weird, have heard of it before. Could you please post this as well:
    sudo lshw -C network
