    wifi Ralink 801.11 n driver not working

    I have installed ubuntu 10.04.2 on my HP mini
    Due to low frequency of the wifi, I had to connect an external device to access wifi internet on it.(only a specific wifi connection)
    I have black list the ralink by
    sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    adding the line
    blacklist rt2800usb
    but now I dont find any networks using the external one. what can I do now to use the external one working on my HP mini?
    N.B. It works fine on Win7.(32bit)
    mine is UBUNTU 10.04.2 (32bit)

    Why did you install Ubuntu 10.04.2?

    It is no longer supported so any updates to that last iso will need to use the end-of-life repos, but there will be no further security updates after that.

    If you really did want 10.04, there was a Ubuntu 10.04.4 version just before it disappeared, but really you should be thinking of an upgrade to a newer version. If Unity will not run on that netbook try Xubuntu or Lubuntu instead.
