    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    I solved all this BS from NetworkMisManager by installing Wicd.

    I tried to be all geeky and core like a command line commando - but in the end - the Wicd GUI saved the day.

    Please tell us the manufacturer/model of your wireless card, and also post the output of
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C net
    lsmod | grep ndiswrapper
    ndiswrapper -l

    To all RT73 users, please also see this post. Thanks to Kiefer Rodriguez for this solution.

    Please post to this Launchpad bug report with all of your specs, if you have problems with a Ralink based wireless adapter.

    This is a simple guide for all Ralink based wireless adapters and everyone who wants to replace the Linux driver with "ndiswrapper" (e.g. because you want to make use of either Network Manager or WICD).

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    • Get the latest version of the Windows driver for your card from Linksys' website or from the CD that came with your device (whatever vendor).


    • Install "ndiswrapper" package with working internet connection (Ethernet):


    • Install "ndiswrapper" package without working internet connection (alternatively, install it via Synaptic/Adept):


    • Load new driver module (may not be necessary any longer, but does no harm either):


    • Add the module to "/etc/modules" to have it load automatically:


    • Create alias directive:


    • Pick a valid Ralink driver based on the chipset of your card (you might blacklist all of them if you are not sure):


    • Blacklist Ralink driver:


    • Now unzip the driver archive you have just downloaded (e.g. in your home directory):


    • Now find the right driver in the resulting folder & deploy it (folder should also contain other driver files i.e. .cat, .sys):


    • Make sure it has installed correctly:


    • The output should yield something like this:


    • Last but not least open this file...


    • ...and add these 2 lines if they are not there yet [also try without adding them if Network Manager does not pick up the card & reboot]:

    You can now safely delete the extracted driver files & folders. Then reboot the computer and see if you can connect using your favorite networking applet (e.g. Network Manager, WICD, Wifi Radar, etc.).

    Feedback is - as always - appreciated.

    CHANGE LOG:
    30/09/2007: Minor fixes.
    07/10/2007: Expanded "blacklist".
    20/10/2007: Added missing part concerning "interfaces" file.
    22/10/2007: Load module "ndiswrapper" at boot.
    23/10/2007: Enhanced blacklist.
    07/11/2007: Bug fix for Network Manager.
    12/11/2007: Updated blacklist & module section.
    13/01/2008: Launchpad bug report.
    15/04/2008: Update for Hardy.
    17/04/2008: RT73 note.
    Everything works until I type the following command:

    Quote:
    ndiswrapper -l

    When I type this command the message comes back as

    invalid driver

    and that is for rt2500usb.inf, rt2500usb.sys and rt2500usb.cat.

    Please help resolve this

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    linuxquestusa, open a terminal and type

    Code:
    cd path/to/drivers     # change the path to the correct path where rt2500usb.* are located
    sudo ndiswrapper -r rt2500usb
    sudo ndiswrapper -i rt2500usb.inf
    ndiswrapper -l
    What is the output?
    Also, if it doesn't work, please tell us what make/model wireless card you are using.

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    limkopi, the good news is that the "lsmod" and "ndiswrapper -l" seem to indicate the driver is properly installed.

    The bad news is lshw is not listing the wireless adapter. It's as though the computer does not recognize the Linksys has been plugged in. I'm not sure why this is so.

    Would you please do the following:
    Power down (not just reboot), then power up the computer, with the WUSB54G attached to a USB port
    Then run:

    Code:
    lsusb        # I'm just curious to see if the WUSB54G will show up here
    bzip2 -c < /var/log/messages > messages.bz2
    dmesg | bzip2 -c > dmesg.bz2
    Please post the output of "lsusb" and post messages.bz2, dmesg.bz2 as attachments.

    Ok, so I followed all of the instructions in the HOWTO, and it worked, no errors. But it won't connect to any networks. Can someone please help me resolve this problem? I don't know what other information to give you, so...
    No one told you to run,
    when you missed the starting gun.
