    Exclamation AWUS036NEH partially working

    Hello.

    I have an Ubuntu Server 12.04 running on a Virtualbox VM instance. This Ubuntu's VM
    instance is running 3.2.0-32-generic-pae #51-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 26 21:54:23 UTC 2012 i686
    i686 i386 GNU/Linux Kernel. When I plug the awus036neh wireless dongle it is automatically
    detected on the guest system.

    This is the syslog:

    it is not able to scan:
    Code:
    $ iwlist wlan0 scan
    wlan0     No scan results
    and neither work with wpa_supplicant:
    Code:
    $ sudo wpa_supplicant -Dwext -i wlan0 -c ~/confs/wpa-psk-tkip.conf 
    ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
    ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
    ioctl[SIOCGIWSCAN]: Resource temporarily unavailable
    ioctl[SIOCSIWSCAN]: Device or resource busy
    Failed to initiate AP scan.
    What must one do in order to have this dongle working properly?

    Thanks.

    Re: AWUS036NEH partially working

    It seems that AWUS036NEH was working in kernel version 2.6.35 with rt2800lib.ko and rt2800usb.ko
    so I copied those compiled drivers from kernel 2.6 and pasted them under
    /lib/modules/3.8.0-29-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt2x00 in kernel version 3.8.0.

    It's working.
