    Help needed with ASUS USB-N13 Wireless Network Adapter

    Hi there,
    I've been searching the Internet for some help with this wireless gadget I recently bought.
    I bought this specific model because there was a nice 'logo' printed on its box saying the magic words 'linux support'...
    http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_I...IcJ&templete=2
    However I'm having a real hardship to make it work (it does work under XP...).

    There is a compressed file on the disk provided (it can be downloaded from ASUS, too), but I'm not really into programming as I'm kinda new to the whole linux thing

    Normally I'm able to work out some solution after having an extensive research done, like I managed to bring my laptop pcimca wireless card to life, also my Dell/Lexmark printer is working nicely. Well done, me

    But this baby is out of my league. So if you are out there for helping others, please gimmme some advice...

    I try to attach the compressed file, it has a readme, with installation guide, but for my knowledge in linux it's not detailed enough, though.

    Thanks for your help, you are awesome

    Please insert the device and open Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal and do:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep -e rt2 -e rt3
    lsusb
    Post the result and we'll proceed.

    It helps!
    Code:
    $ modinfo rt3070sta | grep 1784
    alias:          usb:v0B05p1784d*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*
    Please open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt3070sta
    iwconfig
    Do you now have a wireless interface, ra0 or wlan0, perhaps? Can you click the Network Manager icon at the top right of your desktop, see your network and connect?

    Let's take a look at:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep rt3
    ls /etc/Wireless/RT3070STA
    We'll get to the bottom of this!

    Let's try a fix:
    Code:
    sudo cp /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT3070STA.dat
    sudo modprobe rt3070sta
    dmesg | grep rt3
    iwconfig
    Thanks.

    There you go:
    redsultan@redsultan-desktop:~$ sudo cp /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT3070STA.dat
    cp: cannot stat `/etc/Wireless/RT2870STA.dat': No such file or directory

    Oops! I missed a directory. Sorry about that. Please try:
    Code:
    cd /etc/Wireless/RT3070STA 
    sudo cp RT2870STA.dat RT3070STA.dat
    sudo modprobe rt3070sta
    dmesg | grep rt3
    iwconfig
