    To make things worse, I have only been using Ubuntu and Linux for about two weeks, but I got this working for Ubuntu 11.04 and with the Minimal CD, using xfce4 as my desktop.

    Post #1 by MooPi on this thread are the exact instructions I followed.. However there was a small different in the prep-work.

    I downloaded - This - AND - This

    The firmware file, unziped.

    $ sudo cp rt2860.bin /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin

    Follow Post#1 to the letter.

    Lastly because I did it with Minimal CD and xfce Desktop.
    I installed Network-Manager

    $ sudo aptitude install network-manager-gnome

    (yeah I wanted the graphical interface and I like gnomes manager more - Reminds me more like Windows )

    Rebooted, connected Wireless first time.

    I will say that with the minimal cd and Xfce there is not much loaded so I did load up some stuff. Nautilus, the extra columns for mp3, a Metadata editor, xfce tools (kinda all the normal stuff you would use) XBMC, Nvidia Drivers, and RapidRAID 640 Controller drivers, there was a couple of extras like Firefox etc, but it's pretty bear install. It's possible sometime I installed helps but that is what I did for my card to work.

    Edit:-
    The instructional I followed was actually not the post in this thread, I had stumbled across this first.
    http://www.hyperborea.org/journal/20...i-ralink-3062/
    But the instructions are somewhat the same, apart form the Firmware file, as well the NetworkManager needing to be installed for it to work.
    Works on 11.10 too!!

    Re: Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI Ralink 3060 chip driver instructions

    I have tried all of what has been suggested in the above posts. I am not having luck getting my Rosewill RNX-N150PC wireless working. Can someone tell me what I've done wrong? What can I do to fix this problem? Here's the output I get from my attempts. Can someone help? Thanks!

    Finally, if you need me to provide more information, also let me know what you need to see, and I can provide those details as well. Thanks!

    More information?

    For my Makefile, I have this stuff

    T28xx_MODE=STA
    TARGET=LINUX
    CHIPSET=3562

    PLATFORM=PC

    ifeq ($(PLATFORM),PC)
    LINUX_SRC=/lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/build
    LINUX_SRC_MODULE = /lib/modules/$(shell uname -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
    CROSS_COMPILE=
    endif

    Did I need to change something in the above? Something in the Makefile.4 or the Makefile.6?

    Next, I noticed some of the hints were to just copy the bin file. Where is that? I cannot seem to find that? Is this something made when the make is done correctly instead of the errors I get? Again, if I don't provide enough information, tell me what other details will help in solving this problem. Thanks!!!

    So I downloaded the rt2860.bin from the website (links provided by the above post, thanks!) I got the file, copied it to my desktop (PC that's having the problems), and found that the directory where I needed to copy the file (/lib/firmware/) already had a copy of that file. So if the rt2860.bin is already in place, the above post doesn't help me either. What next? Where can I go from here?

    So I'm just going to keep adding stuff! Maybe somebody can help me with all the details here!

    When 'make' errors out, you might as well stop; all further steps will be errors as well. If trhe module builds at all, it won't work.

    First, it doesn't look like the necessary build tools and linux headers are installed. Second, I doubt a package built in January 2010 is going to compile correctly against a 3.0 kernel. Finally, the module rt2800pci is designed to drive your device. Did you try it?

    Post Re: Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI Ralink 3060 chip driver instructions

    @chili555, rt2800pci does not work well or at all with this hardware. I have to use the driver from Ralink to get it to work on my system. There are several threads where I have helped people get their Ralink wlan going by installing a driver that works.

    Yes, I know rt2800pci is supposed to work, but it doesn't.

    Cool Re: Rosewill RNX-N150PC PCI Ralink 3060 chip driver instructions

    Thank you for a response! I typed what you suggested. (I also appreciate the explanation for what to expect so that I know what I was trying wouldn't work!) What did I get? Here's what the PC is telling me.

    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ sudo modprobe rt2800pci

    tsr@TimothySRooney:~$ iwconfig

    tsr@TimothySRooney : ~ $

    Note, I added some spaces in there because the characters were being turned into smiley faces. Just ignore inserted spaces where there should be none. It's just to stop smiley faces from appearing.

    Finally, I did all the above steps. I rebooted. (Wireless mouse stopped responding with the USB drive switching. I hoped the reboot would get wireless network functioning after I'd executed your suggested commands. No luck there so my wireless network still doesn't function. But maybe the output will help me find some other solution? That someone can suggest? Please!!!)

    I understood that it and the firmware was improved in 11.10. Have you tried it?

    Have I tried it? I'm not sure! How can I try it? What must I do to try the improved firmware? Also, Here's some of the contents of my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    blacklist rt2800pci
    blacklist rt2800lib
    blacklist rt2x00pci
    blacklist rt2x00lib

    Not that this matters (maybe it does), but it should show that I've tried to follow the instructions for other suggested solutions!

    Have I tried it? I'm not sure! How can I try it?
    My comment was directed at ratcheer, not you.

    Now let's see:
    Code:
    dmesg | grep wlan
    ls -al /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    md5sum /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    We hope we see:
    $ md5sum /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    75a1da3caa0b1c95e81dfba207f834c6 /lib/firmware/rt2860.bin
    Thanks.
