Hello,

I'm trying to install the Tenda Wireless N PCI adapter
I have installed ndisgtk with its dependencies.
(as suggested by http://www.alstevens.co.uk/how-to-install-wireless-usb-drivers-for-ubuntu/)
When i try to access the .inf files i get the error message:
Unable to see if hardware is present.

Any ideas please?

Thanks

Did you install the .inf file that came on the driver CD that came with the device? The XP .inf?

i couldn't because it was locked up in a .exe

There is no answer, you will just have to wait till a fix is released. Canonical threw an unfinished release at you to make the deadline. Thats what bloody edge obviously means.

Hello, I'm also having troubles with a tenda w322p installation. I was running server 9.10 (kernel 2.6.31.20) until yesterday when I installed the w322p card. It worked fully straight out the box, and I did not have any problems until I upgraded ubuntu to 10.04 (kernel 2.6.32.21) later that day. The w322p card will now no longer connect to my lan. If I revert back to 2.6.31.20 then the w322p card works perfectly.

I understand that a fix is just a matter of time, but is there any simple way to install the 2.6.31.20 driver into 2.6.32.21, or should I just wait for the fix?

I did what chili555 suggested:

sudo modprobe rt2860sta

This is what I got back:

I don't see much of a difference. The w322p card works with 9.10 but not with 10.04 :confused:

Hi chili555,

I ran the commands on both versions of Ubuntu


What is the result of:
sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
sudo iwconfig wlan0 rate 54M
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
Thanks.

On 9.10 I had to substitute ra0 for wlan0, I got:



$ sudo iwconfig ra0 mode managed
$ sudo iwconfig ra0 rate 54M
$ sudo iwlist ra0 scan
ra0 Scan completed :

The card and driver are working correctly. Does Network Manager see your network? What happens when you try to connect? Does it ask for your WPA-PSK password?

Hi chili, By 'Network Manager' I assume you mean the radio icon on the right side of the top panel (near the speaker icon). The radio icon is indicating that it is scanning, however it is not making a connection. If I left click on it I see my network. If I select my network, it then just continues to indicate that it is scanning. I also recreated a new wireless network with the correct WPA password etc, but no luck. :confused:

On the other hand the w322p works perfectly with 9.10 :confused:

I've since tried an old wg311 card with both versions of Ubuntu, and it works perfectly with either version, however the wg311 belongs to a windows XP PC. It's also odd that the w322p doesn't install properly on the windows XP PC. It kept installing more and more copies of the driver until I eventually pulled the plug. :confused:

I really hate to say this and my old computers 101 (you probably don't remember punchcards) instructor will scorn me, but is the card defective?

Yeh, I was wondering that as well. I'm going to have to take it back and replace it. I'll let you know how it goes. :)

Hi guys, the card is not defective as i an having exactly the same problem with the same card. Again it worked perfectly on ubuntu 9, now it appears to work perfectly on 10, but won't connect. I'm dual booting windows 7 where it also works perfectly.

Well, I went back to the computer store today with the intention of replacing the card with one that worked. I was convinced it was faulty. Anyway the owner took back the card and promptly inserted it into a PC running windows 7, to show me that the card was not faulty. According to him, there are driver issues with windows XP, but the card works OK with 7.

The owner then exchanged the card for a TP-LINK TL-WN851N. Evidently this card works OK with windows XP but it has issues with 7. I plugged it into my Ubuntu 10.04 box and it worked immediately without further effort.

Based on what I have seen so far with help from chili555, I believe that the w322p is not faulty, and the card has (temporary) issues with 10.04. I would also take a stab in the dark, and guess that the issues with 10.04 might be related to the issues with XP.

Thanks anyway, and good luck with the w322p.:D

My w322p worked fine under XP 32 bit, XP 64bit, Ubuntu 9 32 bit, Ubuntu 9 64 bit, but does not work under Ubuntu 10 64bit.

You all might have the same problem that you could find a dozen times in the last 12 hours (could any of the mods make this one finally sticky, please, it is high time!).

Hello,

I ran into the exact same problem after upgrading to 10.04. Here how I got my Tenda W322P V2.0 working:



From a terminal run lspci to determine the chipset your card uses. In my case I had the following entry:
Network controller: RaLink Device 3062
(if you have a different version of the W322P card the chipset may differ, these exact instructions may not work in that case, use your common sense here)
Go to RaLink's website and check their Linux Support page:
http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2
Find your device name and download the corresponding driver. The "RT3062PCI/mPCI/CB/PCIe(RT3060/RT3062/RT3562/RT2860/RT2760/RT2890/RT2790)" driver seemed like the best choice for rather obvious reasons.
Tip: on the driver download page you don't need to enter your name or email address, just click accept.
Extract the download to a location of your choice
Open the .../os/linux/config.mk file in your favourite text editor
Change HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=n to HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y
Change HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=n to HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y
Open your terminal again and navigate to the location of the extracted files
Type sudo make and wait a moment or two
Type sudo make install and wait another moment
Reboot your computer

- Glenn

Hey LordAro!

Sorry, I should have been more specific, re-read step 5 as:

5. Open the <path to wherever you extracted the download from step 4>/os/linux/config.mk file in your favourite text editor

May 27th, 2010, 07:15 PM
ah
i see what the problem is
because mine is: RaLink RT2800 802.11n [1814:0601] there isn't an actual driver available, just firmware
(i picked Firmware RT28XX/RT30XX PCI/mPCI/PCIe/CardBus series (RT2760/RT2790/RT2860/RT2890/RT3060/RT3062/RT3562/RT2860/RT2760/RT2890/RT2790/RT3090) (http://www.ralinktech.com/license_us.php?n=2&p=1&t=U0wyRnpjMlYwY3k4eU1ERXdMekF6THpNeEwyUnZkMjVzYjJG a01UWTBNamsyTVRBNE1pNTZhWEE5UFQxU1ZESTROakJmUm1seW JYZGhjbVZmVmpJMkM%3D) because it seemed right)

I have the RT2800 version too. I followed glennbolton's instructions exactly, except I had to use the "RT2860PCI/mPCI/CB/PCIe(RT2760/RT2790/RT2860/RT2890)" driver to get the W322P card working and connecting to my network properly.

Works a treat now. Thanks glenn!

okay... here goes...
i have since discovered on startup from complete shut down (turned off at wall) there appears to be no wireless active (see internet.png but without the wirless section) until i type in terminal:

sudo modprobe rt2860stathen the wireless networks section appears
aro.zip is before i "modprobed"
aro2.zip is after

[ 12.240933] ndiswrapper version 1.55 loaded (smp=yes, preempt=no)What explains that? Did you try and fail to get ndiswrapper going? Please do:
sudo rmmod -f ndiswrapper
sudo rmmod -f rt2860sta
sudo modprobe rt2860staNow are there networks available?

Your scan doesn't complain or error.

I just wanted to say that I have the Tenda W322P V2 and it did not work out of the box with Ubuntu 10.10, however I have managed to get it working beautifully with great wireless N speeds and WPA2. I have the Tenda W322P V2 which has a Ralink 3062 chip.

Basically follow these instructions (http://www.hyperborea.org/journal/2010/08/wifi-ralink-3062/) to install the driver.

In addition you must also blacklist the following modules in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf by adding:

blacklist rt2800pci
blacklist rt2x00lib
blacklist rt2x00pci
blacklist rt2800lib

Also add the following modules in /etc/modules:

rt3562sta.ko
rt3562sta

Finally reboot after doing all this.


Someone please try this and then we can mark the thread as solved if this works. Please ask if you have problems as there may have been something I missed seeing as tried numerous things to get the card to work.

Hello,

I'm trying to install the Tenda Wireless N PCI adapter
I have installed ndisgtk with its dependencies.
(as suggested by http://www.alstevens.co.uk/how-to-install-wireless-usb-drivers-for-ubuntu/)
When i try to access the .inf files i get the error message:
Unable to see if hardware is present.

Any ideas please?

Thanks

I couldn't find the "administration ‘Manage Sources’" , where is it?:confused:

See my post. You must blacklist the modules specified and specify the right module to be loaded.

On Maverick, Manage Sources isn't available in the Administration menu any more. Run this command:

gksudo software-properties-gtk
from a terminal or by pressing ALT+F2 to access it.

I know what you mean, I have similar problems with an unstable connection, but I think it is just that the card doesn't get great reception and in my case my router is the otherside of 2 walls. 300Mbps wireless N helps a lot in terms of speed and stability.

The card for me is just as unstable in Windows as it is in Ubuntu.

Hi,

The one problem I have is that after any kernel update you have to reinstall the drivers. Thus, what I would suggest to people is that after they follow the install instructions for the first time they leave the folder where they extracted the drivers on their hard drive. This will mean whenever there is a kernel update, all you need to do is run make and then make install to reinstall the drivers. Then simply modprobe rt3562sta and the drivers should be back working. This is what I do anyway.

For example, in the terminal

cd 'the folder where the drivers were downloaded and compiled from before'
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe rt3562sta

Your wireless should then be back up and running as it was before.

Still having issues (see screenshot)

The files are already in the correct folders and I can see it under 'connect to hidden wireless network' but after entering the network password it tries but comes back to log in screen.

Any help would be appreciated.

The card for me is just as unstable in Windows as it is in Ubuntu.

I've changed my mind about this. Wireless N works fine on Windows, but it is a bit unstable on Ubuntu. Wireless G works equally as perfect on both. In fact I now have my router running on G because Wireless N on this card in Ubuntu is irritatingly unstable. Hopefully there will be a driver update soon.

I have completed all other steps and ubuntu can now detect wireless networks but when i try to connect to my home router it never manages to connect. Windows 7 connects perfectly on the same computer. Is it because i couldn't find a rt280.bin file to but in the framework?

Sounds like wpa_supplicant is not enabled. I suggest that you follow all my instructions from the beginning again, including re-downloading the drivers and pay particular attention to point 5 in the instructions that are on the page to which I gave a link to.

Just to say that these instructions still work in 11.04.
And 11.10. It was making me so angry that it wasn't working at first, but after editing the blacklist and modules, it works perfectly

nerderello

just to add some more observations.

I run a PC with both an old, continously upgraded partion which now has 11.10 (now using XFCE, but still with a lot of Gnome stuff and the usual kreft left over from years of use) and a Xubutu 11.10 partition which is a fresh/clean install (on both I had a USB Dongle giving the wlan connection, and it is this that has now been successfully replaced by the Trenda W322P PCI card).

I got this card working with the Xububtu (11.10) by following the above instructions and getting the compiled rt3562sta module loaded (I couldn't find the bin file either - see earlier post - so couldn't copy that firmware file across, but that didn't cause any problems) I also found that I didn't need to do the bits to load the rt3562sta module, it happens automagically.

HOWEVER the old (been upgared amd upgrade over the years) partition was a pig. I followed the instructions and could get iwconfig and ifconfig to show the card, but I couldn't get it to connect to my router.

First I went thru and cleared up some stuff left over in /etc/NetworkManager to make it look like this:

[main]
plugins=ifupdown,keyfile

[ifupdown]
managed=false

Also cleaned up the other files that the above instructions tell you to edit.

But to no avail, then I did the usual "compare the working one with the non-working one file by file" (I really must get a life...) and changed /etc/network/interfaces to read:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

#auto ra0
#iface ra0 inet dhcp

(ie. to get rid of/comment out the ra0 stuff)
rebooted and it came straight up!!!!

12.04 LTS
Further to the above post, I've just upgraded my Xbuntu partition from 11.10 to 12.04 LTS and had to do a
make clean
make
sudo make install
Which was as expected, everything else was left as above.

nerderello
April 29th, 2012, 01:02 PM
12.02 LTS update
Since posting the above I realised that, thanks to blacklisting the rt2800/rt2x00 modules, I hadn't actually tried this card with the 12.02 versions of these modules, so...

They work (as in if you un-blacklist them and reboot), BUT there is a problem. The signal level (reported by the network manager plugin) is only about half what the rt3562sta module gives and when I ran a speed test (speedtest.net) the rt2800 modules gave about 0.6 meg recieve, while the rt3562sta gave about 5meg (big difference).

So, even though they work, the rt2800 modules don't work properly.

nerderello
May 1st, 2012, 03:58 PM
another observation about the use of the rt3562sta driver with the W322P card, my syslog was filling up with loads of messages like these :


<--- rt28xx_get_wireless_stats
MediaState is connected
==>rt_ioctl_giwmode(mode=2)
==>rt_ioctl_giwfreq 11


To get rid of a lot (but not all) of the messages from my syslog, I edited /os/linux/config.mk (the same file that you are advised to edit in the instructions shown in earlier posts) so that the line

WFLAGS += -DCONFIG_STA_SUPPORT -DDBG

becomes
WFLAGS += -DCONFIG_STA_SUPPORT
(ie. remove the -DDBG bit).

Then I re-did the make (ie. sudo make clean, sudo make, sudo make install) and bounced the module (stopped wireless networking with the network manager, then sudo rmmod rt3562sta then sudo modprobe rt3562sta, then re-enabled wireless networking using the network manager).

There are now a lot fewer messages being put into my syslog.
