  1. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    Allright, I have used the wifi further and I've come back to report. It has definitely been better. I have been able to view websites, work on Google Drive, listen to Pandora, and more. My average...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    Ok, so I've been using my wifi with the wpa2 encryption, and I have noticed a difference. I hope I don't jinx myself, but right now it is running pretty smoothly at 36 Mb/s. I am even downloading a...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    If you remember when I said I uninstalled my nvidia drivers, I think I never uninstalled a ppa that I had to install to get the drivers working. It is called the xorg edgers ppa or something like...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I know I should have done it a lot earlier but I just decided to change the wifi encryption type to wpa2 aes. It actually has improved my wifi a little! I think. It does feel a little better, but...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I experimented more with the command I said, but unfortunately it wasn't good. Right now it says I'm supposed to be getting 48 Mb/s, but when I try to load youtube it takes a long time and it even...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I didn't delete my hard drive yet, I'm not eager to. But, I did find something very good I think... When I type
    sudo iwconfig wlan1 rate 18M
    I get better speeds. First I tried 54M but it went...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I understand Wild Man, and I actually did start a new thread but people closed it because they thought it was related to this too much. I'll just ask one more question, and then I think I'll close...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I am very near the end of my line here, this problem is extremely frustrating. I just uninstalled my nvidia graphic drivers, because I've read of some conflicting problems with those and wifi. ...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I found this thread with a link in it to another thread with some code on it. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2220169 Do you think it could be edited to match my card and fix my problem?
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I replaced the new gfxboot with the one I currently have. That seemed to work, as it brought me to the screen where it asks if you want to download or try without installing. When I click try...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I did as you suggested by adding the parameter 'nomodeset'. Luckily this time I didn't get any nouveau errors. However, it still gave me the gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image, and it still booted in...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    Here are the steps I took to make the bootable USB: first I formatted a USB on a windows machine. Then I downloaded the image and put it on the USB also on windows. I then took out the USB and put...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I tried doing a live boot of ubuntu 12.04, which I used to use when my internet worked. Currently I am typing from my computer, which means my wifi is working. But, right now I am only getting 11...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    That's what I thought, but the problem is I don't get a splash screen. When I start my pc with the USB in and set to first boot priority, it says Verifying DMI Pool Data .......... Like normal. ...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    How do I boot it up live with nomodeset?
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I downloaded the image and made it bootable on a USB. However, it gave me this message "gfxboot.c32: not a COM32R image" I then pressed tab and typed live. At first it appeared to be working, but...

    Kernel Upgrade

    Hi all! I'm having a big problem with my wifi, it's been going on for about a month. Very low speeds, and frequent disconnects. I think upgrading the kernel could help, as I've read that it solves...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I'm going to close this thread. My wifi is better, but not really what it used to be. I guess I might try some other stuff to try and fix it, so hopefully it gets better. Thank you all so much for...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I got the new card. Compared to the old one, it's a lot better. Currently while watching a YouTube video I'm getting 48 Mb/s, which is a lot better than the 1 Mb/s with the old card. I tried...

  23. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    I saw an amazon review that said it worked plug in play out of the box on ubuntu 14.04. I think I might go for it... Sure hope it works!! This problem has been going on for a looong time.
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Ralink RT2561 wifi card stopped working in 14.04

    Thanks for the answer, this card looks good but the "tweaking" part worries me. I want something that I know can work, and is fairly easy to setup. Would tweaking the driver be easy and problem...
