    Not Able to get wifi working under 13.04 (Ralink rt5390)

    Ubuntu 13.04 Beta 2, Kernel 3.8.0-19


    Drivers that came with linux-firmware does not connect with AP but driver is there.

    I've tried the offical drivers http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downl...il.php?sn=5001 , but I get build error and is unable to continue.

    Ndiswrapper 1.58 from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ndiswrapper/ , module loads but I get a "loadndisdriver: load_driver(364): couldn't load driver netr28x." error

    compate-wireless gives me the same build error as the official driver,

    Same problem here with an HP Pavilion G62 and a Ralink RT5390, worked fine under 12.10 now refuses to accept password for Wi-Fi and keeps asking for authentication. The Wi-Fi itself is fine as I can connect to it with my HP Touchpad. Using WPA.
    cards
    Looks like lots of other users are having similar problems with Ralink and Broadcom Wi-Fi chip sets.

    A shame as 13.04 otherwise looks very good.

    A bug report has been raised on Launchpad. Suggest you login and flag this bug as affecting you https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/1173759.

    The more people who confirm it is causing them problem then the more likely it is that it will get fixed quickly.

    2 tar -xvf /home/ukbeast/USERNAME/Downloads/2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO_v2. bz2.bz2
    3 cd 2011_1007_RT5390_RT5392_Linux_STA_V2.5.0.3_DPO
    4 download patch http://gridlox.net/diff/rt5592sta_fix_64bit_3.8.patch
    5 patch -p1 <rt5592sta_fix_64bit_3.8.patch (if asks for directory point it to pci_main_dev.c)
    6 make sure /os/linux/config.mk reads HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y

    I have the same problem but this solution doesn't work for me. I followed all steps but the wifi signal continues to be very low.
    Help me please.

    Thank you ukbeast! Your solution worked for me. But I also had to blacklist the drivers which came with the distribution after following your steps, and installing the ralink driver. So Vyrgil, did you try to blacklist the modules? Try the following:

    first, follow ukbeast's post #4, then:

    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    At the end of the file, add these lines:

    # Blacklist conflicting kernel modules
    blacklist rt2800pci
    blacklist rt2800lib
    blacklist rt2x00usb
    blacklist rt2x00pci
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    blacklist rt2860sta
    blacklist rt3090sta

    (I took that from the second half of the solution in
    http://www.upubuntu.com/2012/02/how-...or-ralink.html
    but I did not use his ppa).

    After that, I rebooted, and it worked fine for me, and my rt5390 in ubuntu 13.04 64-bit. Thank you ukbeast.

    Was having issues when using Kernel 3.8 and newer (worked perfectly fine using Kernel 3.5**).
    Followed the instruction above, downloaded and patched the driver.
    Note: I believe I had to install kernel 3.8 headers using synaptic for the build to succeed.

    As another user stated, black listed some modules and the wireless connection is now great.

    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    At the end of the file, add these lines:

    # Blacklist conflicting kernel modules
    blacklist rt2800pci
    blacklist rt2800lib
    blacklist rt2x00usb
    blacklist rt2x00pci
    blacklist rt2x00lib
    blacklist rt2860sta
    blacklist rt3090sta


    THANKS
    ukbeast and malkdude !!!!!!!

    I'm currently having the same problem, but how am I supposed to download the new driver if I don't have any internet?

    Obviously you have to download the driver from a computer with a working network and transfer the file to Ubuntu. You can do the second with any flash card.
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
