I don't know what I am doing wrong, none of these links to the desired binary seem to be working. This one
http://barkmunchers.com/dm1z/RT.tar.gz gives me this error message: "/tmp/PRcwAI+I.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.Try again later, or contact the server administrator" And when I visit this address: http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_supp...ort.php?sn=501 and visit the link for the RT539x PCIe to try and download the binary I get is this error message "/tmp/3RNzuVL8.bin.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.Try again later, or contact the server administrator."
What am I missing here? I don't really want to try and get this driver from a third party website or somewhere I don't trust :/ I am totally willing to go through all of the aforementioned steps, but I can't seem to get the binary
Am I just having some bad luck with links breaking?
Edit: @:eerjay cd is a command that stands for Current Directory. So lets say you are in a terminal window and the prompt looks like this
If you enter:
You will get: email@example.com
yourusername@ubuntu:~$ cd /home
Which means you are in that particular folder when you are executing commands. I hope that at least gives you the general idea!
Edit2: Never mind, after an update and a reboot the links work fine -_- * turns into Loony Toons donkey/@** *
Edit3: Totally worked for me when I followed firstname.lastname@example.org's instructions. Although I did encounter that in the newest version of the driver that the makefile was different. This is what I found for step 5:Edit the config.mk file as below:
HAS_ATE=y (Changed it as per the instructions was originaly n)
HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y (Changed it as per the instructions was originaly n)
HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y (Changed it as per the instructions was originaly n)
[STRIKE]]HAS_ANTENNA_DIVERSITY_SUPPORT=y[/STRIKE] (This line was nowhere to be found, but I did not encounter any problems with the make install when i just left it alone besides the above changes)
Also, I am using Wicd as my network manager and by pure luck I figured out what to do after the reboot.
Open the Wicd network manager and click on the preferances button. On the general settings tab there is a field for 'Wireless Interface:' In that field put ra0 and hit ok. If it does not work, try rebooting, but it worked great for me!
Thanks for all your help guys!
