    Darn, something must have gone wrong after all then. Funny, I didn't get any error messages during the build process.

    Let's troubleshoot. Please run and post:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt5370sta
    lsmod | grep rt5
    sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
    iwconfig
    Thanks.

    Re: RT5370 STA USB wireless adapter driver installation

    Many thanks, the help is much appreciated.
    entering lsmod | grep rt5 got a result:

    Code:
    rt5370sta       801203  0
    But when I typed iwlist wlan0 scan, I got

    Code:
    wlan0   interface doesn't support scanning
    and iwconfig gave me

    Code:
    lo    no wireless extensions.
    eth0  no wireless extensions.
    Now... it's possible I'm way off track & trying to use the wrong device with this driver. lsusb lists it as a PLANEX GW-USMicroN which I'm sure is a Ralink chipset. I've been using it for years on an old Mac laptop with Ralink's OSX driver & it works fine. Just no joy this time around, unfortunately.

    Entirely possible. Let's have a look at:
    Code:
    lsusb
    We need to see details, please.

    Device 005 being the dongle I'm trying to shoehorn into this system. Maybe time to get a newer device...

    Your blog says you have:
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 148f:5370 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT5370 Wireless Adapter
    minamitek has this:
    ID 2019:ed14 PLANEX GW-USMicroN
    rt5370sta does not claim this device.

    Googling your device suggests several (possibly conflicting) ways to get this going. Let's try rt5370sta first. Please go to the files you extracted as a part of compiling the driver. Open common/rtusb_dev_id.c with any text editor; gedit or nano, for example. Scroll down to the section below and add the highlighted text. Punctuation, brackets, spacing, etc. are crucial. Type carefully and proofread twice. After the changes are made, be sure to save and close the text editor.
    Code:
    #ifdef RT5370
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x148F,0x5370)}, /* Ralink 5370 */
            {USB_DEVICE(0x2019,0xED14)}, /* PLANEX */	
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x148F,0x5372)}, /* Ralink 5370 */	
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x13D3,0x3365)}, /* Azurewave */
    	{USB_DEVICE(0x13D3,0x3329)}, /* Azurewave */
    #endif // RT5370 //
    Now we must recompile:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/RT3070etc.  <--or wherever you extracted the files
    sudo su
    modprobe -r rt5370sta
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt5370sta
    exit
    Any improvement?
