    Which version of Ubuntu are you running? 7.10? There is no need to install a separate driver, things have improved a lot since I published this tutorials.

    I don't really know what Backtrack is to be honest.

    This guide was written at a time when ndiswrapper was more of a necessity.
    Now there are open source drivers for Wireless cards that use RT2500 chips.
    I think you'll get better results using those drivers than by trying to use ndiswrapper.

    I suggest you uninstall ndiswrapper:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge ndiswrapper
    and then try the guide referenced here:

    I was serious but obviously it was a little late or early (can't remember) over here when I replied. I am with you now.

    The latest Serialmonkey (Ralink) drivers should actually be included as of Jaunty. I am surprised the 2500 creates an issue.

    Please follow unutbu's advice and report back how it goes.

    Re: HOWTO: RT2500, etc. wireless cards

    Lets see how this goes....blasted windows drivers take forever.


    I've got a rt2860 chipset wireless card, running lucid.

    my router is a WPA2 security and Its has know issues with the standard linux drivers that are included with connecting to WPA2 servers. why this is, i don't know.

    I've followed another fellas tutorial on getting it to work and it does, kind of. lol. It likes to drop my signal quite frequently and not be happy with any secured networks.

    ...judging from your other threads i think you've got some insight into this...

    anywho...when these dang windows drivers are done DL'n I'll let you know how things go.


    also, would this method work for say another chipset of drivers?? I've got a buddy who has a chipset that the manufacture wont allow linux drivers to be produced (damn medieval ijiots). I knew there was a way with the wrapper to run the windows driver but could i just follow your steps only with different names and such??

    thanks in advance
