    unable to connect to sitecom wl-181, chipset ralink rt2800 802.11n pci

    Dear community


    problem: Unable to connect to wireless network at home. The wireless network is visible. Password is requested. But no connection established.


    hardware:
    desktop, ubuntu 10.04
    PCI card: sitecom wireless nework cardbus card 300N
    chipset: ralink RT2800 802.11n PCI
    iwconfig wlan0: RT2860 wireless, nickname: rt2860sta



    I tried using ndiswrapper. Conclusion: 'driver already installed'.


    The wireless network does connect on my laptop with ubuntu 10.04 installed.
    Distance to modem: 3 feet.



    Thanks


    Stijn

    The fix is to blacklist the rt2800usb driver, In a terminal do:

    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    and add:

    Code:
    blacklist rt2800usb
    Reboot your system.

    Lucid (or karmic) will then use the RT2870STA driver and work perfectly.
