    Thank you

    I am having issues, I see my Network, I entered my coordinates, I try and connect and the beacon keeps flashing, in previous Ubuntu version 9.10, 9.04 I had no issues. So I cannot connect to my Wireless Network.

    Using the RC1 of Lucid Lynx, I noticed an issue, but upon reboot, I was connected to Wireless.

    Now I am using the latest Lucid Lynx 10.04 LTS 64 bit Ubuntu.

    and I just installed Lucid Lynx today, Friday 30th of April, 2010.

    So Terminal Open
    Code:
    uname -a 
    Linux ubuntu64 2.6.32-21-generic #32-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 16 08:09:38 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    Wireless RaLink RT2760

    Code:
    lsmod | grep rt2860sta
    rt2860sta             879881  1
    Code:
    $ iwconfig 
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    ra0       Ralink STA  ESSID:""  Nickname:"RT2860STA"

    First in your original thread, the URL for RaLink has changed.
    http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=2

    Then the 2008_0918_RT2860_Linux_STA_v1.8.0.0.tar.bz2 is no longer listed,
    I chose the closest one to your description

    2010_01_29_RT2860_Linux_STA_v2.3.0.0.tar.bz2

    I followed your procedure exactly to the letter, final results it did not succeed.

    So this is not Only an issue for my workstation, I have at least 4 other friends with the same identical card. I am expected soon to install same on their pcs, so this is really an issue, for many Ubuntu users.

    It was an non-issue for me in 9.04 and in 9.10 it simply worked One Step.

    Thank you for your Feedback.

    Re: Howto: Ralink RT2860 (m)PCI(e) (RT2760/RT2790/RT2860/RT2890) on Intrepid

    This has also become a problem with me since installing Lucid Lynx LTS and finding that there is no replacement kernel available from array.org for my eee901.

    I to have downloaded 2010_01_29_RT2860_Linux_STA_v2.3.0.0.tar.bz2 and installed it. I now have ra0 instead of wlan0 but I still can't connect to my hidden SSID access point that is configured to use WPA & WPA2 with TKIP & AES. This wasn't a problem with the 9.04 kernel from array.org that was using the 1.7.1.1 driver.

    Maybe someone could tell us where to download the array.org version of the 1.7.1.1 driver from.

    Here's hoping.....

    ...OK I've found the eee specific driver that RALink released at:

    http://www.itwriting.com/DPO_RT28xx_...2008_07_15.tgz

    and I've tried to compile it but I get the following after typing make && make install

    ...which I assume means it hasn't compiled successfully. There are some patches listed for Intrepid kernel 2.6.27 for allowing a successful compilation on the array.org site:

    http://launchpadlibrarian.net/174402...t_compat.patch
    http://launchpadlibrarian.net/174402...0-nd_net.patch

    ...but I don't understand what they are all about or if and how to use them. I'm way outside my comfort zone now and just hoping someone else will see this and go "Oh hey that's easy, all you need to do is....", and then give us some concise instructions.

    I really want the wireless on my eee 901 to work on ALL network configurations flawlessly again, like it did in 9.04 with the array.org kernel before I installed 10.04 with the default kernel.

    Re: Howto: Ralink RT2860 (m)PCI(e) (RT2760/RT2790/RT2860/RT2890) on Lucid Lynx

    OK in my original post yesterday, I forgot to mention I used EXT4 file system.

    For whatever reason, I find this most interesting, today I installed again Lucid Lynx, but EXT3 FS was used, First Time attempt, it worked, no issue with wireless, 2nd time, after reboot, it worked, third time, it stalled, and since 4th reboot, no problem.

    I am not saying this solves all issues with RT2760, but certainly in my situation, using EXT3 File system has resolved this issue, in the interim.

    Is this an EXT4 File system issue in this release, 10.04 Lucid Lynx affecting RaLink RT2760?

    More feedback required.

    Hi.

    I have written up a tutorial specifically aimed at getting the Ralink RT2860 chipset working with wifi and WPA security for Ubuntu 10.04. I think I have made it understandable for the novice. I am not a Linux expert by any means so that's where I'm coming from.

    Hope this helps.

    I tried your method ctbarker32 but I'm afraid still no success

    In fact with that new driver with the alterations that you suggested I can't even maintain a link to a completely open access point, which seems strange considering the changes that you suggested seemed to only be referring to the WPA/WPA2 bit of the driver.

    May be it's all because I have no idea what I'm doing !

    Oh please, to have a fully functioning wireless network card in my eee 901 again...

    help!

    I'm successfully using Ricardo Salveti's custom kernel from the launchpad bug report, post #53: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/496093

    If compiling the driver or using the custom kernel doesn't work, it's possible your problem might not be driver related.

    Ok here I am a few days later, sometimes I have an issue with connecting,
    I disable Wireless wait a few seconds, reconnect then all is well, this however occurs every 3rd or 4th time I log in..I don't remember any issue in 9.10. However in 10.04 this is an issue.

    Re: Howto: Ralink RT2860 (m)PCI(e) (RT2760/RT2790/RT2860/RT2890) on Intrepid

    has anyone tried using the newest (07/16/2010) drivers from Ralink's website? Either I'm an idiot or all of the files listed to download are currupted. I can't get them to unpack on any machine (tried several Ubuntu machines and 2 windows machines using winzip).

    I get the same error whether I use the tar command or right click/extract here.
    Code:
    bzip2: (stdin) is not a bzip2 file.
    tar: Child returned status 2
    tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

    I moved my RT2760 nic to a new machine I was putting together for my son and never bothered to save the old drivers I downloaded.

    Anyone have a working copy that they might want to post for download (or send me)?
    sudo apt-get lost
