    you two got me thinking..
    I chose to hide my SSID before and connect manually but couldn't get it to work.

    SSID Broadcast is now on. It Works!
    I just need to click my network and type my password. I don't even need to select my encryption, ubuntu already had it right.

    Thanks!



    edit:
    I tried turning SSID Broadcast off. DHCP worked, static IP as well but only for a while.
    I chose static-ip and removed the "Search Domains" field to force a disconnect. After that I could not get a connection although all options were back to the previous working setup.
    It kept asking for the password. Checking the "Show password"-box revealed what seemed like a hex-unicode-kinda phrase to me, no matter what I inserted before.

    Turning SSID Broadcast on again got me connected and online in no time.

    Re: EW-7728In, Ralink chipset problem with drivers

    My system has rt2860sta.ko in it already; doesn't yours? Moreover, it's a later version that what you are trying to compile here.
    Code:
    sudo updatedb
    locate rt2860sta.ko
    Also, a file built in 2008 is unlikely to work well with your newer modern, sleek 2.6.31 kernel.

    Shall we try to get your device working with what's already in the kernel? Please post:
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    You can omit everything not wireless.

    Re: EW-7728In, Ralink chipset problem with drivers

    I dont have a etho connection so I can't update with a simple sudo command.
    My suggestion, sudo updatedb, updates the searchable database on your computer; it does not require an internet connection.
    RaLink RT2800 802.11n PCI [1814:0601]
    Your device is claimed by the built-in driver:
    Code:
    modinfo rt2860sta | grep 0601
    alias:          pci:v00001814d00000601sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2860sta
    iwconfig
    Was a wireless interface created, wlan0 perhaps? If so, can you click the Network Manager icon and connect?

    If not, let's find out what's going wrong. Please post:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep -i rt2
    Thanks.

    I do see a wifi icon in my top menubar, but it doesn't pick anything up and I know there are at least 5 different types of wifi signals in the area
    Code:
    liminal@ubuntu-antec:~$ sudo updatedb
    [sudo] password for liminal: 
    liminal@ubuntu-antec:~$ sudo modprobe rt2860sta
    liminal@ubuntu-antec:~$ iwconfig

    How about it? There may be clues in there.

    Please try:
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig ra0 mode managed
    sudo iwconfig ra0 rate auto
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    If you get scan results, try Network Manager again.
