View Full Version : [SOLVED] Linksys AE1000 Not starting on start up

July 29th, 2011, 01:10 PM
I recently purchased the Linksys AE1000 wireless USB network adapter. After some struggles, I found and installed the Ralink_RT3572USB_drv2400 driver for it and it now works, however it won't turn on when I boot up the computer. I have to manually unplug and then plug the adapter back in for it to work again. Anyone have any ideas? I followed the instructions on this how to for installing the driver.

You could try adding this command to rc.local.

ifconfig wlan0 up

To edit rc.local:

sudo gedit /etc/rc.local

Add it below this line:

# By default this script does nothing.

Then make it runnable by all.

chmod a+x /etc/rc.local
