Stop bumbing your thread every hour :(

Maybe this can be of interest: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/460323

I think your usb stick might be using the RT73 chipset. Google or these forums should be able to help you. Next time you might want to not buy the cheapest chinese stuff and look for something you know will work. (Just some friendly but maybe kinda harsh advice).

I have the Tenda W311U working fine under Ubuntu 10.04 beta 1 on my netbook.

The Tenda is cheap but works.

All I did was to add rt2870sta to the end of /etc/modules.

I disabled the built in wireless. (There's a switch on the netbook). Plugged in the Tenda USB. Rebooted, and it worked!

Hope this helps

I might add to this that sometimes the switch for enabling/disabling the internal wireless also does the same for any other wireless cards that are connected.

Hello,

I too have the Tenda W311U in my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (vanilla install). The Network Selector app can see it and make it active, but still, I can't connect!

I tried but I can't edit the file "/etc/modules" - How did you add the line, what was the exact code?

Some Info:

Thanks for your help.

Since my last post, I have found the following links from the Manufacturer:

Linux support Page - go down to: [(RT2870USB(RT2870/RT2770) - 07/09/2010 - 2.4.0.1)]: (http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2)

http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2

Linux driver source Page [just click the Accept button to get the source download dialog box]: (http://www.ralinktech.com/license_us.php?n=2&p=0&t=U0wyRnpjMlYwY3k4eU1ERXdMekEzTHpBNUwyUnZkMjVzYjJG a05ETTVOalU0TXpVeU5pNWllakk5UFQweU1ERXdYekEzTURsZl VsUXlPRGN3WDB4cGJuVjRYMU5VUVY5Mk1pNDBMakF1TVM1MFlY ST1D)

Now, since I am not a programmer nor an advanced Linux user, could someone explain, in simple terms:

1. If it is the right driver for the "Tenda mini 11n wireless usb adapter w311u"?

2. How, in simple terms, to compile and install this driver.

I certainly hope that Ubuntu adds native support for this adapter. It's cheep and very popular.

Thanks in advance.

You need to open a terminal window and enter

sudo gedit /etc/modules

You will then be able to edit the file and add

rt2870sta

as the last line.

Save the file, and again in the terminal window type

cat /etc/modules

to confirm that the changes have been made.
That's all I did!
