I recently bought a Cnet CWP-854 Wireless PCI Adapter. It worked perfect out of the box in Hardy 8.04 2.6.24-19-generic with the rt2x00pci kernel module (I believe)
Though after a couple of hours of the network card running the computer freezed and I had to hard reboot. There seemed to be a problem with the module.
I downloaded the latest driver from Ralinks website: http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Hom...ort/Linux.html (RT2501PCI/mPCI/CB(RT61:RT2561/RT2561S/RT2661)
It builds fine but I can't get the networking to work.
Interface ra0 exists and I can scan for AP's. Though on every AP it finds Bit Rates are 0Kb/s and nothing more.
I need some help with this, since it is a bit over my head. Can I just delete every kernelmodule that has to do with the network card and /etc/Wireless/RT61STA/* to start over?
Is there any updated detailed instructions for Hardy and the RT2561?
Re: RT2561/RT61 Problems
Update: Currently the card works with rt61 kernel module.
I had to make KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 in order to make it compile. It gave me tons of warnings but it seem's to work anyway. I shall see if it freezes the computer. To be updated
