    When you say "work out of the box" do you mean work with Network Manager, or just be recognized in gutsy? Gutsy recognizes my card and I can use it with aircrack-ng, but it doesn't work with network manager. I'm not about to remove it either .

    Well, I never use NetworkManager but I can tell you for certain that it works for connecting to networks...

    My D-Link DWL-G122 Rev. C1 works out of the box for Gutsy using it's rt73usb drivers. Works with NetworkManager too. The drivers naturally aren't patched for injection though. So you may still want to follow this tutorial if you require injection abilities

    after that posting the device seems rather temperamental with gutsy's stock drivers. Speed/signal fluctuations and even signal drop outs/disconnection

    EDIT: ignore me. Found a fix on the forums http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...99#post3671699

    Re: Ralink RT73 USB Wireless Drivers in Feisty Fawn (7.04)

    Thanks for this guide. I've successfully got my RT73 card to work on Gutsy Gibbon:

    Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop
    (K)Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)
    Linksys WUSB54GC wireless USB stick
    p_larbigs' 2.0.1 driver
    RutilT 0.16 WLAN manager

    Notes:

    • Model WUSB54GS can only be used with ndiswrapper driver since it has a Broadcom chipset.
    • Model WUSB54G v4 has a Ralink chipset, but not previous versions!
    • I didn't try the rt73usb driver coming with (K)Ubuntu, since I eventually want to use injection.
    • I didn't have to remove the network manager coming with Kubuntu (KNetworkManager).
    • The link quality is better now that what I've experienced with my laptop's built-in wiresless card (Broadcom bcm43xx), passing from 50% to 80% for a given network.

    Re: Ralink RT73 USB Wireless Drivers in Feisty Fawn (7.04)

    Hi HymnToLife,

    I have same problem as kzu. I have Edimax EW-7318USg. rt73.ko created of approx 246k after strip.

    Terminal 'log' is shown below:
    administrator@JohnLaptop:~/Temporary/rt73-k2wrlz-1.1.0/Module$ sudo strip -S rt73.ko
    administrator@JohnLaptop:~/Temporary/rt73-k2wrlz-1.1.0/Module$ sudo make install
    *** Install module in /lib/modules/2.6.20-16-generic/extra ...
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.20-16-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/administrator/Temporary/rt73-k2wrlz-1.1.0/Module modules_install
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-16-generic'
    INSTALL /home/administrator/Temporary/rt73-k2wrlz-1.1.0/Module/rt73.ko
    DEPMOD 2.6.20-16-generic
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-16-generic'
    /sbin/depmod -a
    *** Update /etc/modprobe.conf alias for rausb*
    grep: /etc/modprobe.conf: No such file or directory
    *** Install firmware in /lib/firmware ...
    *** Check config ...
    administrator@JohnLaptop:~/Temporary/rt73-k2wrlz-1.1.0/Module$

    /etc/modprobe.conf has 1 line: alias rausb* rt73

    iwconfig shows lo, eth0 & eth1 (which is the inbuilt Broadcom 1390 wireless card in Dell Inspiron 1501).
    /etc/iftab shows eth0 & eth1 with their mac addresses & arp 1.


    Help please!
    John

    I have tried with the 2.0 drivers as well ... and I have tried removing the 'old drivers' ala the rt73 wiki.

    I'm getting the same error. Doesn't look like this guide works for gutsy anymore.

    Re: Ralink RT73 USB Wireless Drivers in Feisty Fawn (7.04)

    Thanks to this guide (modified by me only via the links...for later version of the software/drivers) I was able to get my hawking USB (ralink) device working and browsing my WPA2 wireless network! THANK YOU....

    ...now if injection works...I'm set!!!

    ONE QUESTION: When I type airmon-ng and his enter...is it supposed to list my rausb0 as Driver: RT2500

    even though I'm using RT73??
