    Sorry - meant to post back.

    I think it is a hardware problem.

    Thanks for the help though...

    My Dlink DWA-110 USB wi-fi adatptor worked fine on Jaunty 9.04 up to and including kernel 2.6.27-14. Kernels/module combos since don't work. But as these later kernels provide me with no obvious benefits, I continue to boot 2.6.27-14.

    If the DWA-110 USB W-Fi adaptor will be once again automagically functional with kernel 2.6.29.....I'll wait for that rather than try to implement the various solutions outlined above. If I had NO connectivity, I'd be in, boots and all, but at this point - for me - the simplest, most rational thing to do is keep booting the last kernel that worked out of the box with the one device I need to talk to any other thing on this planet.

    It worked fine for me in 2.6.28-13-generic in Jaunty 9.04, and worked fine with my custom compiled (and stripped down) 2.6.30 kernel from the Ubuntu kernel PPA

    For it to compile on Kernel 2.6.29, 2.6.30, etc.., in case you custom compile 2.6.30 like I did, you need to make sure you have the following kernel config option enabled:

    "Networking Options" -> "Enable older network device API compatibility"
    Code:
    CONFIG_COMPAT_NET_DEV_OPS=y
    2.6.30 kernel seems to run a bit faster than the stock 2.6.28, especially if it has been stripped down a bit (and optimized for the particular CPU on your system).

    I also upgraded the nvidia-graphics-drivers from the Nvidia Vdpau Team PPA (185.18.x) and I can say it's pretty good...
    Moreover, a lot of people noted they had much snappier video response with the 2.6.30 kernel update and the 185.18.x nvidia-graphics-drivers.. You can search the ubuntu forums for the Jaunty 9.04 users who upgraded to 2.6.30 (and nvidia drivers) to see for yourself..

    I just have all my drivers (madwifi-hal 0.10.0, nvidia-185.10.x, rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3, etc..) in dkms tree and they all build and install out of the box with my 2.6.30 upgrade (and recompiles if ever needed)

    If you do use make-kpkg to build debs of your linux-headers and linux-image (in /usr/src) to use for upgrading your kernel, like so (you need to add your user to the "src" group and logout and relogin first to be recognized in the "src" group before untarring linux-source-2.6.30.tar.gz in /usr/src):
    Code:
    $ cd /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30
    $ make menuconfig
    $ fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=1.0 --append=-custom1 kernel-headers kernel-image
    $ cd ..
    $ sudo dpkg -i linux-*-2.6.30-custom1_1.0.deb
    ... MAKE SURE that you either delete (or rename) the "/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30" directory before installing the debs you created, otherwise the debian-based system will make the infamous mistake of pointing the symlink from "/lib/modules/2.6.30-custom1/build" to "/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.30" (instead of symlinking it to "/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.30-custom1" as it should), which means hell if your sources ever get tampered with and you need to recompile some module(s) or install new module(s)..

    hope this helps anyone, as it costed me a lot of time (and cpu power) before

    Re: Ralink RT73 USB Wifi Driver (patched for injection & frag) + DKMS in Jaunty (9.04

    How can I remove the RT73 enhanced drivers? I installed them and I don't want them.

    Nothing I try can get rid of them.

    Thanks.

    Do this to uninstall the module(s) that were installed by DKMS and have it removed from the DKMS tree so it will not be automatically built for your kernel builds again:

    Code:
    sudo dkms remove -m rt73-k2wrlz -v 3.0.3 --all

    The guide also helps you build and install the module with DKMS (which is natively supported in Jaunty 9.04), so that if you recompile your kernel or upgrade it later, the module will be automatically rebuilt and installed for you, by DKMS

    For more info on p_larbig's RT73 USB driver sources:
    http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/

    Notes about this version (3.0.3) from the author's site:
    The wireless card I tested this on is a DLink DWA-110 USB, the system I tested this on is a clean install of Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 with all updates as of 17/7/2009 (including the stock kernel 2.6.28-13).

    Blacklist the mac80211-based rt73usb & rt* drivers to avoid conflicts
    create a new file in /etc/modprobe.d called blacklist-rt73.conf
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-rt73.conf
    and paste the following in it:
    Code:
    # Blacklist rt73usb (mac80211) as it's beta and conflicts with the 
    #  stable ieee80211 based rt73 module
    blacklist rt73usb
    
    # Other modules that possibly conflict with rt73
    blacklist rt2500usb
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    blacklist rt2x00usb
    Download the latest version of the RT73 USB Enhanced Driver
    (in your home directory or in /tmp or wherever you like, it will no longer be needed after)
    Code:
    wget http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2
    tar xjf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2
    cd rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3
    you should now be in the top-level directory you just extracted ( rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3 )

    Prepare DKMS config
    create a file in rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3 directory, called dkms.conf
    Code:
    nano dkms.conf
    and paste the following in it:
    Code:
    PACKAGE_NAME="rt73-k2wrlz"
    PACKAGE_VERSION="3.0.3"
    
    # make sure kernel is 2.6.27 or newer, just in case
    # http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/
    BUILD_EXCLUSIVE_KERNEL="2.6.(27|28|29|[3-9][0-9])"
    
    MAKE[0]="make -C Module"
    CLEAN="make -C Module clean"
    
    BUILT_MODULE_NAME[0]="rt73"
    BUILT_MODULE_LOCATION[0]="Module"
    DEST_MODULE_LOCATION[0]="/kernel/drivers/net/wireless"
    
    AUTOINSTALL="yes"
    Create a traball archive of the source directory (with our dkms.conf in it)
    Code:
    tar czf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3-dkms.tar.gz rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3
    Load the rt73-k2wrlz tarball to DKMS source tree
    Code:
    sudo dkms ldtarball --archive=rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3-dkms.tar.gz
    Build rt73 module with DKMS
    Code:
    sudo dkms build -m rt73-k2wrlz -v 3.0.3
    Install rt73 module with DKMS
    Code:
    sudo dkms install -m rt73-k2wrlz -v 3.0.3
    Insert you RT73 USB Wifi adapter and it should be automatically detected, and automatically configured for you by NetworkManager or WICD (whichever one you use) if you have either installed. I use NetworkManager, and it automatically detected my DLink DWA-110 USB soon after I plugged it in
    Or alternatively you could install RutilT
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install rutilt
    Author's site: http://bonrom.cbbknet.com/
    More info on making RutilT run in startup:

    Hope this helps anyone

    sorry for Asking guys...

    Re: Ralink RT73 USB Wifi Driver (patched for injection & frag) + DKMS in Jaunty (9.04

    anyone tried this in 2.6.31 kernel? (karmic maybe?)
    does it still work?

    First, please dont quote an entire tutorial when replying..

    Secondly, your question is off-topic for this thread, as this thread is clearly titled for RT73 USB only..

    Nevertheless, if you have followed the link to p_larbig's site, which is mentioned at the very top of the tutorial, you would've quickly realized he also makes a RaLink RT2570USB Enhanced driver which may in fact work for you... But newb + lazy + can't read = a pity..

    From my post #13 above, if you cared to read it at all:

    For it to compile on Kernel 2.6.29, 2.6.30, etc.., in case you custom compile 2.6.30 like I did, you need to make sure you have the following kernel config option enabled:

    "Networking Options" -> "Enable older network device API compatibility"
    Code:
    CONFIG_COMPAT_NET_DEV_OPS=y
    So it *should* work in 2.6.31, since I've tested it with 2.6.30 with the above added kernel config option.

    If you're running a generic 2.6.31 kernel in karmic, check to see if it is enabled by default. For instance:

    Code:
    grep CONFIG_COMPAT_NET_DEV_OPS /boot/config-2.6.31-10-generic
    If it's not in there, then you will have to compile a new kernel to add it.
    See: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile
    and: http://blog.avirtualhome.com/2009/09...aunty-revised/

    Good luck..
