    Linksys AE1000 Wireless USB Stopped Working on Reboot

    So I followed the directions on this webpage to get my Linksys AE1000 wireless USB dongle to work with Ubuntu:

    http://powerport.webs.com/linuxubuntu.htm

    It worked flawlessly! Perfect!

    But...then I rebooted my PC and now it won't work. It does get recognized when I type 'lsusb' in the terminal:

    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 13b1:002f Linksys AE1000 v1 802.11n [RaLink RT3572]

    What can I do to make it work? I'm using the latest Ubuntu 64-bit, clean install.

    Please try this:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo rt3572sta >> /etc/modules
    modprobe rt3572sta
    exit
    You will need to rebuild the module whenever a newer linux-image is installed by Update Manager. Any idea why the built-in rt2800usb didn't work? Firmware issue?

    Post back if you need more help.

    Thanks chili!

    I think the problem was that, right after I got the wireless working, I then ran the ubunutu updater and that's why I rebooted. So likely the kernel was updated. So I just re-ran the install/make procedure and it's back up and working. I'll reboot to test but I'm confident it will work, and if not I saved the install instructions to a script file for future use : )

    Thanks again!

    Glad it's working! Would you please use Thread Tools at the top to Mark Solved?

    Thank You using my site. The when original site went down. I remade the driver. I never knew so many people needed it.
