    The instructions listed in the link from earlier posts I found have typos. Below are some corrected instructions that hopefully should get you on your way...

    1. Download the file contained at this link:

    2. Extract the files to a directory. Then open a console, navigate to the directory that you extracted the files to then run the following commands:

    PHP Code:
    sudo make
    sudo make install
    sudo mkdir 
    sudo cp RT5390STA
    .dat /etc/Wireless/RT5390STA/RT5390STA.dat
    sudo cp 
    ./os/linux/rt5390sta.ko /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt5390sta.ko 
    Note that for the last command above I used the option <uname -r>. This will copy the files to the current running kernel version. Make sure you are running the kernel that you wish to get the wireless running on...

    Now edit /etc/modules to add the line 'rt5390sta' at the end

    Then run:

    PHP Code:
    sudo depmod -a
    That should get you on your way. Hopefully that I didn't add in any typos myself.

    **Edit** fixed the <uname -r> with `uname -r`, Thanks frospeh for catching the error!
