    $sudo rmmod rt3070sta
    $sudo modprobe rt3070sta
    If no module is loaded when you plug in the device then you could add it to be loaded at startup. But my guess is that the rt3070sta.ko file is not in the right location.
    It turns out that this was pretty much exactly what was wrong.

    /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/staging/rt3070/ contained an rt3070sta.ko, but it was different from the one I built. Copying rt3070sta.ko into <the staging path you mentioned>/rt3070/ works better, at least. Early indications seems to be that I need to do "sudo modprobe rt3070sta" by hand, though ...

    Thanks a bunch!


    EDIT: the early indications were wrong; lesnoland's fix is 100%.

    It's not working for me. I also have a WLI-UC-GN, and have followed every step/update in this thread, including the suggestions that were made to you. I get...

    linux# modprobe rt3070sta.ko
    FATAL: Module rt3070sta.ko not found.

    Also, I get:

    linux# ifconfig ra0 inet 192.168.0.33 up
    SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
    ra0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
    ra0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

    What can I do?

    Thanks,
    Jonah

    You can start by trying to insmod ./rt3070sta.ko driver from os/linux, as stated above.

    Also if you get some kind of error while compiling, installing, following the instructions tell us about it.

    Also post more info about your computer such as the following:

    Code:
    $uname -a; cat /etc/issue; ls -la /lib/modules

    Thanks. I tried that, and insmod ran without error. However, I still get the same errors as in my latter post when I run modprobe and ifconfig.

    Also if you get some kind of error while compiling, installing, following the instructions tell us about it.
    I did not see any errors while compiling, but it's possible I missed something. Should I recompile and post the terminal output?

    Also post more info about your computer such as the following:

    Re: Tenda W541U V2.0 Wireless USB Adapter / Ralink RT2070 How To

    I did the following as the instructions suggested $sudo pico /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf add the following lines: blacklist rt2x00usb blacklist rt2x00lib blacklist rt2800usb close and save. $sudo rmmod rt2x00usb (just in case) $sudo rmmod rt2x00lib (just in case) $sudo rmmod rt2800usb (just in case) And the dongle did not light up. I removed the above lines from /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and the dongle does light up but when doing a "dmesg" the following message is displayed at the end: Disabling channel 2467 MHz on phy3 due to Country IE [ 269.353614] cfg80211: Disabling channel 2472 MHz on phy3 due to Country IE [ 269.353619] cfg80211: Disabling channel 2484 MHz on phy3 due to Country IE [ 269.354736] phy3: Selected rate control algorithm 'minstrel' [ 269.356326] Registered led device: rt2800usb-phy3::radio [ 269.356364] Registered led device: rt2800usb-phy3::assoc [ 269.356401] Registered led device: rt2800usb-phy3::quality [ 269.427095] rt2800usb 1-1:1.0: firmware: requesting rt2870.bin [ 269.681281] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan1: link is not ready Any Ideas? Thanks for the great instructions, by the way.

    Hi There,

    Has anyone got a copy of

    2009_0525_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.1.0.tar.bz2

    The ralinktech site (link on first post) appears only to have some newer drivers

    2009_1110_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.2.0.tar.bz2

    which when following these instructions, gives an error (during the UPDATE1 section of the post) on patching :

    patching file 2009_0525_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.1.1.0/include/rtmp_os.h

    If someone could post the v.2.1.1.0 version of these drivers I'd be most grateful.

    Many Thanks.

    Exactly the same happened to me just now with 2009_1110 driver from Ralink. Any ideas for us?

    PS. Before finding this thread I compiled 2009_1110 without this patch but it doesn't seem to work. Also in Connection Information in NetworkManager for driver it shows "usb" not RT3070 or RT2870. Any ideas please? I really got stuck with this. Ihave Tenda W311U which is 150Mb USB N adapter it seems with RT3070 (lsusb is giving 148e:3070).

    PPS. Also, I don't know if it matters, someone might know but in the /etc/Wireless folder there was RT3070STA folder created during my compiling but the file inside is named RT2870STA.dat have no idea why and whether that's good or bad.

    @Fruitbeard
    In case you're still looking for solution, it seems I managed to get this going.
    First of all, sudo lsusb is reporting 148F:3070 Ralink which means RT3070 chip and not RT2870 but since the patch for RT3070 driver was giving me the same error like yours, I decided to give RT2870 driver a shot. I'm attaching the exact driver I used and the exact patch. On the Ralink website they still offer the same driver for RT2870, the 2009_0820 anyway so you can get it there too.

    1. Before compiling, edit the /os/linux/config.mk file and change wpa supplicant options from 'n' to 'y' (yes) if you want to use WPA. Put the patch file inside the 2009_0820 folder that will be created when you extract the driver. It has to be there or it won't work. Execute the patch with:

    patch -p1 < patchname

    2. Open /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and blacklist 2x00usb, 2x00lib and 2800usb as per the instructions in the first post here.

    3. Open /etc/modules and add
    rt2870sta

    4. Open /etc/rc.local and add
    # hack for wireless
    ifconfig ra0 up
    pkill NetworkManager

    That's it. Reboot and see if it works. I hope I didn't forget anything.
