View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ralink RT2870 USB 2.0 Wireless N Adapter :: Cannot connect to the network

August 8th, 2009, 03:31 AM
I'm using a Ralink RT2870 USB 2.0 Wireless N adapter, and I can't seem to connect to my network when using Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty. I find it strange that it does not ask me to specify the encryption of AES.

If I choose to connect to my network with Ubuntu, I enter :

- my SSID name
- choose security type : (WPA & WPA2 personal)
- enter my password
then click connect
the little network icon starts "rolling"...
then a message box shows asking me for the required password.

The password (shown if I click the show password box) looks like a generated pw! If I enter my wlan pw again, it goes searching for a minute and the same message appears again.

I haven't tried making my network visible, but I hear that it fixes the issue?

How do I get connected with my Ralink adapter?
