    Re: wifi trouble

    Hi, that url with the zip file wouldnt do any good
    because you have no way to get it on the ubuntu machine.
    I am leary of having you load the rt2800 driver because you
    have some kind of driver currently loading or it wouldnt have
    connected for a short time. lets try this...
    at the ubuntu machine enter..

    Code:
    lsmod | grep usb
    lower case LSMOD
    look for a number...hopefully RTxxx usb
    and for mac80211 in the first colum and an RTxxx usb or whatever in the 3rd colum
    any number that has usb in it.
    please read this carefully....also...does the wireless usb device, the actual
    plug in unit say b/g/n?

    and more importantly...is the wireless router close to the computer?
    please answer all 3 questions in your next post
    thanks.

    Re: wifi trouble

    @ Hadaka
    If there is a driver in it?can i delete or just download a fresh copy known to be clean?
    if this usb unit wont work i have another coming ? today. IF there is a ? driver in it already i dont expect the new/different one to work either.
    if thats the case im not in the mood to get into a saga to get connected to the net,as i am,easily at this moment.
    id love to be a linux user but it doesnt look like it is at the level of performance as ,drat, windows is!
    yes my widemac works fine here,not damaged by pulling it out of the usb port,yes i tried it on an extension cable hanging on the ceiling. when it works it doesnt care where it is.

    the sw i showed you is a copy of the disk the manufacturer packed with it,best i can do.

    so im waiting for ups for my final usb device.
    i do very much appreciate all your efforts and help and i thank you very much.

    Re: wifi trouble//nuttin ez!!

    So i got a new asus usb wifi device today.
    No install program like i have learned to love over the years!, just a bunch of files and cryptic gobly gook stuff i dont understand. i struggled thru this kind of stuff in the days of dos 5!! but im not up to it after all the years of those endless but easy install programs in win 3.1---98--xp--7, and all the ones in between.
    ill hang around from time ton time to see if anyone finds the wifi cure for linux!!

    btw the new asus does nothing,unlike the widemac that connected all by itself,(on occasion!)

    Re: wifi trouble

    Hi, just so you know, its not a linux problem, its
    a wifi manufactures problem, if they don't support
    and supply dirvers for linux then it becomes difficult
    at times. You wimac wireless has worked and it is loading
    the driver, this is why i needed you to supply some information
    to figure out what driver.
    Code:
    lsmod | grep usb
    the wifi only needs to be plugged in, it doesnt matter if it is
    working or not...it still loads the driver. here is mine...it's plugged in
    and not active.
    Code:
    Hadaka@the_beach:~$ lsmod | grep usb
    rt73usb                27029  0 
    crc_itu_t              12627  1 rt73usb
    rt2x00usb              20092  1 rt73usb
    rt2x00lib              48146  2 rt73usb,rt2x00usb
    mac80211              393421  3 rt2x00usb,rt2x00lib,b43
    as you can see it uses the rt73 driver ....rt73usb...
    this is the information i need from you to get your
    wireless working

    Re: wifi trouble

    the last thing i reported was
    "usbv 148fp5370 and some other junk in my previous post.

    are you saying that the giant file that vcame on the disc with the widemac device was usless for that product
    ??
    it had win drivers and linux files. no good??

    understand it is difficult to go next room,with hand written notes,enter it,get a response,hand write it and bring it here to type!,quite messy when i dont know what im doing

    Re: wifi trouble

    What im saying abou tthe zip file is..you ave no way to load it.
    the usbv 148fp5370 is the wifi chip..the circuit inside the wifi unit.
    that is not the driver. if you plug it in and then type...

    Code:
    lsmod | grep usb
    it will most likely say what the driver is
    rtxxxxusb....all i need is the one number
    not tons of data
    or if you want to try this command..it may load
    plug in the wifi and enter...
    Code:
    sudo modprobe rt2800usb
    does it work?

    Re: wifi trouble

    !!! FIRST, let me quickly check in,,,on my ubuntu comp!!!

    it connected with my last post and i went into town , just got back and got the surprise!

    so hello world and thanks. maybe we ,you can figure out why its working!!


    it asks for password??
    i put in the one i started with last month before i got wifi and it doesnt tell me if good or not and i dont know what to expect.

    also where do i get a list of the "mystery"codes you are giving me?!! so i can study and know a little bit about this stuff

    another edit as long as i am connected its a little easier to reporte back on the same computer as i mess with!!

    HOOORAAY!!! wait till i tell my friend ART who got me into this in the first place!!
