    Good work! When a newer kernel version, also known as linux-image, is installed by Update Manager, you'll need to compile this driver for the later kernel. Open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    cd Desktop/Linux/DPO
    Press Tab and the remainder will fill in automagically. Press Enter. Now do:
    Code:
    sudo su
    make clean
    make
    make install
    modprobe rt3573sta
    exit
    Please make a note of these instructions so you'll be ready.

    I've now rebooted with the old one and the connection is fine.

    Solutions???

    I did this and it seemed to compile without errors, but I can't make a connection with the new kernel. I haver to reboot into the old kernel to connect.

    Booted into the new kernel, please run and post:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt3573sta
    dmesg | grep -e rt3 -e wlan
    Thanks.

    Here's the dump:

    cecilieaux@CM-Workstation:~$ sudo modprobe rt3573sta
    [sudo] password for cecilieaux:
    cecilieaux@CM-Workstation:~$ dmesg | grep -e rt3 -e wlan
    cecilieaux@CM-Workstation:~$
    Am I correct in assuming nothing happened?

    BTW, I'm going to bed, won't be able to make more progress until tomorrow night.

    Thanks so much for your patience!

    Hmmm. Let's dig deeper. Please post:
    Code:
    modinfo rt3573sta | head -n5
    lsusb
    sudo modprobe rt3573sta
    dmesg | tail -n10

    Hello ALL!
    I am also new to unbuntu, infact I just installed it today.w
    I don't really think the command line thing will be a problem even though it is kinda intemidating. Years ago I was a SysOp of a bbs but that was a really a long time ago (before the internet) lol. Does anyone know if the netgear WNDA4100 supports packet injection, if so thats also the usb adapter that I have and would like to make work with Ubuntu, if it does not support packet injection then I will just get another adapter that does. Can you tell me the best N adapter that works best with ubuntu that can supprt packet injection, thanks again in advance for any help. ps I know I will love the os ounce I get used to it but need some help getting started.

    Thats the thing...it is inserted but the adapter doesn't have any of the lights on. I noticed when i compiled the drivers the first time that the lights on the adapter didn't come on till after the driver was compiled.
