Title: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: jiaweihuo on September 20, 2012, 07:59:52 am
I asked a question on Ubuntu's launchpad in the following link:

https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/208994

And I got an answer from this forum. But I don't know what exactly to do. So I ask this question here again, with more details in the previous link.

[EDIT]

IGNORE THIS POSTING, AND SEE MY NEXT POSTING BELOW.

[END EDIT]

Can you open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), then run these commands and post the output back here:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
and
Code: [Select]
ifconfig
and
Code: [Select]
iwconfig
and
Code: [Select]
iwlist scanning
and
Code: [Select]
rfkill list

Be aware .. the first command will prompt fro your password .. enter it and hit enter .. you won't see anything echoed to screen whilst you type your password (not even ******) but it is going in .. also be aware that command will take a frew seconds to complete.

and remember, Linux commands ARE case sensitive .. so that's a capital C in the first command.

OK, ignore the above posting .. I got the vendor:device ID string from your launchpad posting :)

The Vendor:Device ID string for your wireless adapter is 1814:3290 which means it has an Ralink RT3290 chip .. so you need the rt3290sta drivers.

So enter these commands in sequence to download and install them (you will NEED to be connected to the internet with an ethernet cable whilst you do this), it may also be best to copy/paste the commands into the terminal:

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
wait for that command to finish and leave you back at an $ prompt, then run:
Code: [Select]
cd ~
then:
Code: [Select]
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11876059/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508.tar.gz
then:
Code: [Select]
tar -xvf DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508.tar.gz
then:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo su
enter your password when prompted and hit enter (the prompt should change from $ to #), then:
Code: [Select]
make
then when that finishes:
Code: [Select]
make install
then:
Code: [Select]
exit
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe rt3290sta

Did your wireless spring to life ? .. if so, does it survive a reboot (ie. does wireless still work after a reboot) ?

One more question. It does not survive after reboot. I think I can solve this problem by myself. Thanks.

Run this command:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modules

add a NEW LINE at the bottom that reads:-

rt3290sta

SAVE the file .. and reboot to test.



Any driver modules listed in /etc/modules are automagically loaded at bootup :)

And thanks for marking the topic (SOLVED) :)

OK, so it doesn't appear to be a networking issue .. which distro/version are you running ?

Does it work with another browser ?

I'm not 100% convinced this is a driver issue .. have you tried installing the chromium browser:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
then disconnecting your wired connection, and trying Chromium.

I'd just like to rule out Firefox somehow causing this.

OK, those drivers were only really tested with 12.04 .. not 12.10.

What kernel is 12.10 running:
Code: [Select]
uname -a

It may be that a kernel downgrade, then recompiling the driver might work

Did they compile without error in 12.10 ?
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]

Linux iLinux 3.5.0-18-generic #29-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 19 10:26:51 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Yes they compile without error, I even redone it with a fresh install of ubuntu just to make sure !!
 
Is there another distribution that have the driver by default or something , I just don't want to be with windows !
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on November 28, 2012, 03:47:14 am
AFAIK, there will be no distro that has these drivers by default, as they aren't even properly supported by Ralink .. I had to add the VENDOR:PRODUCT ID strings to the ralink drivers to get them working in 12.04.

It won't be hard to install a 3.2 series kernel, then recompile the drivers .. this will NOT remove the 12.10 kernel, it will ust give you an OPTION to boot the older kernel.

I'll write up instructions tomorrow and post them here, but I'm off to bed now .. it's 03:45 here ;)

OK, create a directory in your Home directory called kernal-install:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/kernal-install
change directory to it:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/kernal-install
now download the 3 (64bit) kernel files necessary (we're going to go for 3.2.0-33, current in 12.04):
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.2.33-precise/linux-headers-3.2.33-030233-generic_3.2.33-030233.201210310701_amd64.deb
then:
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.2.33-precise/linux-headers-3.2.33-030233_3.2.33-030233.201210310701_all.deb
then:
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.2.33-precise/linux-image-3.2.33-030233-generic_3.2.33-030233.201210310701_amd64.deb
Now install them with:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

When installed (and you're back at an $ prompt) .. REBOOT.

If this is NOT a dual boot system, you'll have to hit and hold the Shift key immediately after the BIOS POST screen to access the GRUB boot menu .. once aat the GRUB boot menu, look for the option to boot into the 3.2 kernel (maybe in a sub-menu called something like "Other Linux Versions" .. highlight it, and hit enter to boot to it.

When at the desktop, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
to check you're using the 3.2 kernel, NOT the 3.5 kernel.

Once you're sure .. follow the original instructions to download, compile, and install the drivers.

If it works .. let me know, and I'll tell you how to set the 3.2 kernel as the default kernel to boot at system startup (so you don't have to keep selecting it at the GRUB menu every boot).



Rebooting WITHOUT selecting the 3.2 kernel at the GRUB menu should boot the 3.5 kernel.

Thank you so much it's working the only problem I have , My cursor is acting all weird . it's always disappear on screen ? Do you know how to fix that ?

And how to put that kernel as default ?

Thanks again !! You save me from an awful windows 8 laptop haha

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on November 28, 2012, 05:57:42 pm
One at a time .. you'll probably have to reinstall the graphics drivers (if you're using proprietary drivers).

Start "Additional Drivers" .. then if any graphics drivers are listed, de-activate them .. then reactivate them.

But if I were you I'd give consideration to either replacing Ubuntu 12.10 with 12.04 LTS .. which will be supported for longer anyway, as it's a "Long Term Support" release.
(12.04 has 4 and a half years support left .. 12.10 has about 17 months .. hopefully Ralink will have released a new driver before 12.04 runs out .. or your card will be added to the rt2800pci open source drivers).

or

just buy one of these:
http://www.amazon.com/Edimax-EW-7811Un-Wireless-Adapter-Wizard/dp/B005CLMJLU (http://www.amazon.com/Edimax-EW-7811Un-Wireless-Adapter-Wizard/dp/B005CLMJLU)
and sticking with the 3.5 kernel
(that Edimax EW-7811Un Nano works "out-of-the-box" n 12.04, so *should* in 12.10 to)



If you open "Additional Drivers" .. is anything listed ?



We'll get to making 3.2 default in a bit .. though as I said you'd probably just be better off with Ubuntu12.04 .. which you can get from there if you wish:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso (http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso)

Post by: iManu on November 28, 2012, 08:51:17 pm
I've listen to your advice I finaly install 12.04 ! Thank you so much for your support !

One last question what is better

AMD/ATI proprietary FGLRX graphic driver or
AMD/ATI proprietary FGLRX graphic (post-release updates)

and by installing 12.04 I don't have the cursors problem anymore  :)
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on November 28, 2012, 08:54:26 pm
It's not really important .. go with "post release updates" unless you have a problem with them ;)

Glad to hear you're now sorted.

[EDIT]

Ooops, nearly forgot .. you're most welcome :)

OK, first of all this shouldn't be happening in 12.04 .. you seem to be getting the same errors as 12.10 users are getting .. which is odd, maybe they've updated something in 12.04 that's broken these drivers, but I'm a bit baffled by those lines from dmesg that point to your home folder.

Can you run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r rt3290sta
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe rt3290sta
then
Code: [Select]
dmesg | tail -n 50
and post the output.

Do you know how to boot into the 3.2.0-29 kernel ?

If so, do it and test wireless .. if it still doesn't work .. try recompiling/installing the drivers whilst booted into 3.2.0-29 .. then modprobe rt3290sta again.
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on January 21, 2013, 02:48:49 pm
No .. turn off your PC .. turn on your PC, and immediately start stabbing the "Shift" key .. you should be presented with the GRUB boot menu.

At the GRUB boot menu .. scroll down to "Other Linux" or "Earlier Linux versions" or similar, and hit enter .. then scroll down to the

3.2.0-29

entry .. and hit "Enter" to boot.

don't select the 3.2.0-29 (Recovery Mode) option.

Also remember that if at  any stage you reboot .. you'll have to do this again .. as this boots the older kernel for a SINGLE boot (which is currently all we want .. we3 don't want to make it permanent unless it works).

Actually .. before you try that, can you download this firmware:
https://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git;a=blob_plain;f=rt3290.bin;hb=HEAD

put the rt3290.bin file in your home directory, then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v ~/rt3290.bin /lib/firmware/rt3290.bin
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r rt3290sta
then

then post the output from:

It not works with wireless on 3.2.0-29, it not works with reinstaled driver on 3.2.0-29, it not works with downloaded firmware, the behavior is the same, only ra0, no ip adress, no ssid, RT3290_AsicTxAlcGetAutoAgcOffset: Incorrect desired TSSI or current TSSI

I noticed this strange message in dmesg:

OK, we're going to install the 3.7.2 kernel then use rt2800pci as the wireless driver.

Just in case this breaks something else .. remember, you will still be able to boot to the older kernel (3.2.0-36) the same way you booted 3.2.0-29 .. then we'll remove 3.7.2

OK, run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/kernel-3.2.7
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/kernel-3.2.7
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.7.2-raring/linux-headers-3.7.2-030702-generic_3.7.2-030702.201301111424_amd64.deb
then

wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.7.2-raring/linux-headers-3.7.2-030702_3.7.2-030702.201301111424_all.deb

then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.7.2-raring/linux-image-extra-3.7.2-030702-generic_3.7.2-030702.201301111424_amd64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
now open /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf with:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
and add a NEW line at the bottom that reads:-

blacklist rt3290sta

SAVE the file, and REBOOT

Check the rt2800usb driver is loaded with:
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep rt2800pci
If nothing is returned run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe rt2800pci

Check your wireless can see your router with:
Code: [Select]
iwlist scanning

Then come back here and tell me what happened .. as we *may* need to tell the system to load rt2800pci at bootup

And REMEMBER .. if anything else breaks, such as wired networking .. you can always boot the older kernel, then come back here.



For future readers .. This method should also work for Ubuntu 12.10
but along with updating the kernel to 3.7.2, don't forget to install the firmware as described below.

Download this firmware:
https://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git;a=blob_plain;f=rt3290.bin;hb=HEAD

Put the rt3290.bin file in your home directory, then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo mv -v ~/rt3290.bin /lib/firmware/rt3290.bin
to move it to the /lib/firmware directory.

So if you (normal left) click on the Network Manager icon by the clock .. is your router listed ?

if so, click it .. you should be prompted for your wireless key .. enter it, and click Connect.

did it connect ?

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on January 21, 2013, 10:27:53 pm
Actually it's using rt2800pci not rt2800usb   <--- my mistake

So it may be a good idea to unload rt2800usb:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r rt2800usb

Or just reboot .. then test your wireless.

I have noticed the router called "test" appears to be in ad-hoc mode .. why ?

Yes, paying attention at rebooting I've seen a message about disconnect IRQ16, I think it is any kind of hardware problem. Shutdown instead of reboot isn't critic, i think I'll leave it

The exact message may help .. but if you're happy to just shut down instead.

I wonder if disabling APIC would help ?

Hello,

I've really found your post useful but I think I'm over my head a little on putting the pieces together. I am trying to run Ubuntu 12.04 on an HP Envy i bought from Woot.com (http://tech.woot.com/offers/hp-envy-six-core-desktop-w-10gb-ram (http://tech.woot.com/offers/hp-envy-six-core-desktop-w-10gb-ram)).  I worked through this post:
1) got card recognized and on the network, but it froze when I used it
2) using the instructions on the 3/4 page and now I've got a working network card and no freezing
But.... I have really bad packet loss %50+.
I'm not sure if I have done a bad combination of steps (it really is just a series of steps, because I dont quite understand all the pieces.. like rt2800pci vs rt3290sta) or if I have another issue, but I was hoping I could get some help diagnosing or finding the where to look next. 

Any input would be much appreciated. I've snipped as much information I could think to include.

Hi tatagatha and welcome to the forum :)

I gather you need the rt3290sta drivers for your card, but I don't know if you've already installed them or not .. can you send the output from:
Code: [Select]
modinfo rt3290sta
and we'll go from there.

Post by: tatagatha on July 01, 2013, 03:22:27 pm
Code: [Select]
ERROR: modinfo: could not find module rt3290sta

How could I have a working network connection with lots of dropped packets if I didn't have the driver at all?  I think there is part of this picture I am missing. Are there two pieces to the drivers? Or two drivers for the same card and one is better than the other?

Also.. Thanks!
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on July 01, 2013, 04:22:34 pm
There are 2 drivers available for your card

a) rt2800pci which is the open source generic driver built into the Linux kernel .. works perfectly well with *most* Ralink PCI adapters, but not all.

b) rt3290sta the proprietary drivers which cannot be included in the kernel .. so you'll need to download and compile it.

I'll post instructions in a bit.

You'll need to install a couple of things before compiling, so are you able to connect your PC to your router with an ethernet cable .. so you have a stable internet connection whilst we sort out the wireless ?

And just to be 100% sure .. you're using Ubuntu 12.04 64bit right ?

Ah... ok. I think I understand now. The black list is what prevents one driver from being loaded so that the other can be used...

Yes, I'm able to use a wired connection.

Yes, I'm using 12.04 64 bit.

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on July 01, 2013, 05:45:56 pm
OK, I'll post the instructions anyway, but from what I gather these instructions won't work for the 3.7 kernel .. is there any particular reason you're not running 12.04's default 3.2 kernel ?



WARNING - DO NOT attempt these instructions on anything above the 3.2 kernel, they will fail to compile and/or won't work

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]

wait for that command to finish and leave you back at an $ prompt, then run:

cd ~/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo su
enter your password when prompted and hit enter (the prompt should change from $ to #), then:
Code: [Select]
make
then when that finishes:
Code: [Select]
make install
then:
Code: [Select]
exit
then:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r rt2800pci
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe rt3290sta
Does your wireless still work ?

If so, reboot .. then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
so we can check the rt3290sta drivers are still being used.

I ended up using the 3.7 kernel when following instructions you gave 'powery' earlier in this thread.

I have followed some steps that as I can tell are identical to the ones you gave me (except the extra step of adding rt3290sta to the modlues list) and while I was able to get connected to the wireless network, the moment i tried to use the interface ubuntu froze.  That is when I found this post and an issue very similar to 'powery' : Ubuntu froze and the only clue was about "Incorrect desired TSSI or current TSSI".  I dont know if that give a clearer view of how i got to the state I'm in. I can always do a fresh install since there is nothing i care about on this machine yet.

I'm away from that computer right now, but I will try later tonight. I can also switch kernals to the 3.2 ( I use the grub bootloader to make this selection?)

Thanks!

Let's try the rt2800pci hwcrypt switch.

Open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modpobe -r rt2800pci
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe rt2800pci nohwcrypt=1
now check you packet loss.

If things have improved, we'll have to set this option to be set at each boot .. otherwise it will be lost when you reboot.

OK, thogh I'm still a bit baffled by you having the 3.5 kernel .. I thought 12.04 used the 3.2 kernel.

Anywho .. let's try compiling the drivers in the 3.5 kernel .. if they work, we can remove the 3.7 kernel.

Boot to a 3.5 kernel .. then go back to this posting:-

so the make commands for building and installing both worked. After removing rt2800pci and installing rt3290sta I do have a working network connect, but it still has a lot of packet loss.  Perhaps this is not a hardware issue at this point.

I would guess you're right .. if both drivers are doing it, I'd doubt if it's a driver issue .. possibly hardware, either the card or router could be at fault .. or just that you're using a channel that someone else near you is using.

What's the output from:

Just 3 days old in the Linux World! :)

Got an ASUS X55U notebook with RT3290 wifi adapter built in. Installed Ubuntu 12.04 and after numerous visits to numerous forums still can't get to connect to the wifi (the notebook is hardly 10 ft from the wireless router!)

Having gone through the entire thread, I have collected some of the required information that may come in handy to diagnose the problem. Please do let me know if more is required. Thanks very much in advance! :)

Gimme half an hour .. having my dinner :)

I take it you can connect by ethernet cable .. in case we need to install anything ?

Thanks for the quick response, Mark! Yes, I am on the wired connection (for past 3 days- in last so many years!!) :)

OK, let's try the driverss directly from Ralink (I've pre-modified them and uploaded them to my dropbox.

Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
then:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/rt3290sta
then:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/rt3290sta
then:
Code: [Select]
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508-modified.tar.gz
then:
Code: [Select]
tar -xvf DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508-modified.tar.gz
then:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/rt3290sta/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508
then
Code: [Select]
sudo su
then
Code: [Select]
make
then
Code: [Select]
make install
then
Code: [Select]
exit
then
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modules
when a file opens with some stuff already in it, ADD a single NEW line at the bottom that reads:-

rt3290sta

SAVE the file and close gedit

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
when a file opens with some stuff already in it, ADD these 3 NEW lines at the bottom:-

# Added by vishal to correct conflict with rt3290sta
blacklist rt2800pci
blacklist rt2x00pci


SAVE the file.

Now REBOOT .. and check if wireless works.

Couple of things: 1. While performing the suggested operations, got errors with make and make install 2. When I check the system with the commands that you had advised in your previous post, I notice that the results have changed. Here are the outputs, starting with 'make' :

Damn .. I was hoping you were on the 3.2 kernel

OK, gimme till tomorrow and I'll look into patches to allow the driver to be compiled in 3.8

The adapter isn't recognised because we blacklisted the rt2800pci driver it was using .. for now, leave it blacklisted and come back tomorrow.

Luckily I'm running the 3.8 kernel, so at least I'll be able to test any patches :)

No problem, Mark.

Though just 3 days into the Linux world, thanks to the problem, I have learnt many new things. Hopefully, we arrive at a solution - there are a number of users who are facing this exact problem - we all will be able to enjoy the wireless - again! :)

OK, thanks to this posting:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1278183#p1278183 (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1278183#p1278183)
I've modified pci_main_dev.c so the driver now compiles against the 3.8 kernel.

BUT

Everywhere I look online seems to suggest that compiling this driver will cause kernel panics when used  :o

So I'm wondering if we'd be better off removing the blacklist entries we added, then try a later kernel, possibly 3.9 (and possibly later firmware too).
(I've also read that though it *should* be possible to get rt2800pci to work as the driver, there then seems to be a weak signal/connection drops issue everyone is having)

Another option would be to go back to the 3.2 kernel, and compile the drivers from Ralink .. this option is supposed to work well.

Your other option would be to just call it a day for the time being (until Ralink get round to releasing new drivers) and use something like one of these tiny little things:
Edimax EW-7811Un 150Mbps Wireless IEEE802.11b/g/n nano USB Adapter (http://www.edimax.com/en/produce_detail.php?pd_id=347&pl1_id=1)
work "out of the box" with Peppermint 4 (which also uses the Ubuntu 3.8 kernel)

(http://www.edimax.com/images/Image/productimage/wireless/217x205/EW-7811Un_217X205.jpg)

Which route do you want to try ?
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 10, 2013, 03:12:04 pm
Thanks very much for posting the alternatives. Truly appreciated! :)

I think trying out with 3.2 should be fine as long as: 1. it doesn't disturb the files and other programs that are currently installed, 2. upgrading to 3.x ( x>8 ) at a future date doesn't disturb files and other programs installed at that point of time [being a newbie, I am not actually aware of the repercussions]

If you think there might be issues involved working with 3.2, I think the next best option for the time being is to use and external USB adapter, and wait till such a time when 3290 can be made to work with either 3.8 or higher kernel version.

Please advise. Once again, thank you very much for helping me out on this one! :)
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 10, 2013, 04:13:41 pm
OK, I think the best way forward is to first undo the blacklisting of the original drivers .. run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modules
and remove the line we added earlier that reads:-

rt3290sta

SAVE the file and exit gedit.

Now run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
and remove the 3 lines we added earlier that read:-

# Added by vishal to correct conflict with rt3290sta
blacklist rt2800pci
blacklist rt2x00pci


SAVE the file and exit gedit.

Now let's get the latest firmware (rt3290.bin) .. run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install git git-core
then
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/3290-firmware
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/3290-firmware
then
Code: [Select]
git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dwmw2/linux-firmware.git
then
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -v linux-firmware/rt3290.bin /lib/firmware

Now reboot and test if wireless works ?

If it doesn't work (which it probably won't), I think the next step is probably for us to try the 3.9 kernel .. we can downgrade to 3.2 later if necessary.



In answer to your "repercussion" worries about changing kernels...

The cool thing about Linux is installing an earlier or later kernel does NOT uninstall the original kernel .. so if there are any problems, it's still possible to boot the original kernel :)

But there *should* be no repercussions, except maybe some other peripheral stops working instead  :o

OK, before we do this ..

Do you know how to access the GRUB menu at boot ?

Sut down your PC, then turn it back on .. immediately after turning on the PC, hit and hold the "Shift" key .. eventaully you should be presented with the GRUB boot menu.

When at the menu, just hit enter to boot the default kernel

I just want you to confirm you're able to do this before I post instructions for installing the 3.9 kernel.

Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 10, 2013, 07:50:53 pm
Thanks Mark.

Holding down the Shift key while the system  restarts didn't show up the GRUB menu. Tried multiple times (including a try where I 'stabbed' the Shift key while the sys was rebooting). Also, I noticed error messages that just flash by as the system restarts: 1. Secure boot not enabled, 2. error: efidisk read error, 3. could not write bytes: broken pipe.

Looks like I'm heading towards yet another reinstall!  :-\
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 10, 2013, 08:27:37 pm
Is this a dual boot setup ?

We can force the GRUB menu to appear every boot, whilst we try this if you want ..

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub
then find the lines that read

GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true

and change them to

GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=-1
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=false

SAVE the file and close gedit.

Now back in the terminal, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub

Now reboot and see if the GRUB menu is displayed for 10 seconds before automatically continuing to boot. ?

I've changed the

GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=10
to
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=-1

in my last posting.

Also be careful if you copy paste the whole lines from above .. for some reason an extra space gets inserted .. probably best to edit by hand.

And don't forget to run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
after making the edits.
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 10, 2013, 09:00:52 pm
Thanks Mark. It worked!

Changed GRUB_HIDDEN_TI MEOUT=-1 and GRUB_HIDDEN_TI MEOUT_QUIET=false. The GRUB menu appeared and stayed for a while, and then system resumed boot process. (those error messages, that I mentioned earlier, remained though)
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 10, 2013, 09:19:41 pm
We'll worry about those later (if they become a problem) .. they may not be a problem at all, dunno yet.

OK, the reason I wanted you to have access to the GRUB menu is so if installing the 2.9 kernel causes the system to not boot .. you can (at the GRUB menu, go to the

Previous versions

menu item, and hit enter TWICE, to boot the  Ubuntu 3.8.0-31 kernel.

OK, if you understand that, let's install the 3.9 kernel .. run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/3.9-kernel
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/3.9-kernel
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.9-raring/linux-headers-3.9.0-030900-generic_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_amd64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.9-raring/linux-headers-3.9.0-030900_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_all.deb
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v3.9-raring/linux-image-3.9.0-030900-generic_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_amd64.deb
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

If those commands run without error .. REBOOT (and just let GRUB count down and boot the new default 3.9 kernel)

When booted, run:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
to make sure you're running the 3.9 kernel .. if so, test wireless.

REMEMBER, if it won't boot with 3.9 .. you can select 3.8.0-31 from the GRUB "previous versions sub menu.

Hey Mark. I just wanted to say thanks. I dropped this thread a couple months ago because the machine was for work and I found myself close enough to the wires to not worry about wireless and just went about my day. 

Thank you for all your feedback and interaction.  Aside from the shear knowledge, the effort in your questions and formatting them clearly is just above and beyond.  So yeah. Thank you!

Thanks for the detailed steps, Mark!

Followed all the steps and no errors were reported. Rebooted. GRUB menu showed up. By default 3.9 kernel loaded. Wireless couldn't connect. Wired connection was lost as well. Tried 3.9 a couple of times with the same result.

Switched back to 3.8.

Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 11, 2013, 01:47:08 pm
OK, whilst booted to the 3.8 kernel, run:

sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-3.9.0-030900-generic linux-headers-3.9.0-030900 linux-image-3.9.0-030900-generic
that will remove the 3.9 kernel .. automatically setting 3.8 back as the default.

OK, looks like we have 2 options left

a) look into the 3.2 kernel, and compiling the rt3290sta driver <-- this should work, but I need to do a bit of homework to check if it's safe to do so from the 12.04.3 image .. and if the "extras" package is necessary.
(oddly, earlier versions of 12.04 came with the 3.2 kernel by default .. but I'm unsure if it's possible to downgrade 12.04.3 .. or whether you'd be better off installing an earlier version of 12.04, then refusing the 3.8 kernel if it's offered as an upgrade .. I need to check this)

b) use a USB stick

Let me know if you want me to look into the 3.2 kernel.

How prepared are you for a complete reinstall if things go horribly wrong ?
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 11, 2013, 02:08:59 pm
Thanks Mark.

As the system is very new, there isn't much on it  that is critical. So, we could try doing a clean install of 12.04 with 3.2 (if that is available) and refusing any kernel upgrades till 3290 gets support from any of the future kernel versions.

While this is getting sorted out and if need be, I can go back to my earlier notebook (running Windows  ;D )
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 11, 2013, 04:18:23 pm
OK, first thing to do .. get yourself a copy of Ubuntu 12.04.1 from here:
http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/12.04.1/ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso (http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/12.04.1/ubuntu-12.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso)
and burn it to disk, just in case.

Do NOT get 12.04.2 .. as that used the 3.5 kernel series .. which also won't compile the Ralink driver.

But don't install it yet.

If you're OK to reinstall (if necessary), I reckon maybe we should try the 3.2 kernel in your current install, and see what happens .. If it screws things up .. THEN you can reinstall from the 12.04.1 disk you burned.

What do you reckon ?
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 11, 2013, 06:53:44 pm
Thanks Mark.

I am downloading 12.04.1 from the link that you gave. As I don't have a blank CD at my disposal for now, can I create a LiveUSB using some tool like Unetbootin?

It's okay to reinstall. So, I'll back up some of the files while it is getting downloaded.
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 11, 2013, 07:04:34 pm
You most certainly can :)

Creating a LiveUSB stick in Ubuntu based distros -

First you'll need too install usb-creator-gtk, so open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install usb-creator-gtk

Then search your menu's for Startup Disk Creator

Here's what to expect -

(http://linuxforums.org.uk/MGalleryItem.php?id=1582)

I've found it's usually best to let it format the USB stick first, so in the bottom pane select your USB stick, and hit the "Erase Disk" button, and enter your password if prompted.

Once the format is done, in the top pane, select the ISO image you want to create the LiveUSB stick from (if it's not already there, browse to it by clicking the "Other" button)

If you want the LiveUSB to be persistent (ie. able to save changes), make sure "Store in reserved extra space" is selected, and use the slider to adjust the size of the persistence file (the amount of room set aside for saving changes).

Click the "Make Startup Disk" button.

You'll be prompted for your password a couple of times before it tells you the LiveUSB has been created and is ready for use.

OK, boot to your 12.04.1 LiveUSB and tell me if the wired connection works or not.

Post by: vishal on October 11, 2013, 11:01:45 pm
Just to be sure, I understand this correctly - "boot to your 12.04.1 LiveUSB " means - use the "Try" option instead of "Install" option with LiveUSB. Right?

YES .. Select Try Ubuntu .. then when at the Live session desktop, see if a wired connection works.
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 11, 2013, 11:20:04 pm
Both, Wireless and Wired, not available when booted with LiveUSB. Tried a couple of times. Back to 3.8! :(

(Are we about to hit the wall?  :-\ )
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 11, 2013, 11:45:00 pm
Not quite .. we can try booting to the 3.2 kernel (not the LiveUSB) and compiling/installing the wireless driver (as you already have the headers and build-essential installed).

Half of it will have to be done offline, so probably best to copy these instructions to a text file on your desktop whilst running 3.8

OK, whilst in 3.8 run:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/rt3290-for-3.2
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/rt3290-for-3.2
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
tar -xvf DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508.tar.gz
Now reboot to the 3.2 kernel, then run:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/rt3290-for-3.2/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508
then
Code: [Select]
sudo su
then
Code: [Select]
make
then
Code: [Select]
make install
then
Code: [Select]
exit
then
Code: [Select]
gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blaclist.conf
when a file opens with some stuff already in it, ADD these 3 NEW lines at the bottom:-

# Added by vishal to correct conflict with rt3290sta
blacklist rt2800pci
blacklist rt2x00pci


SAVE the file, and exit gedit.

Now run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modules

when a file opens with some stuff already in it, ADD a single NEW line at the bottom that reads:-

rt3290sta

Save the file, and exit gedit.

Now REBOOT back into the 3.2 kernel again

Does wireless work ?

Boot to 3.2 and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo rfkill unblock 0
or
Code: [Select]
sudo rfkill unblock all

then  check if wireless is still softblocked with:
Code: [Select]
rfkill list
if not .. does wireless work ?

Hard blocked: no
1: asus-bluetooth: Bluetooth

I have rebooted 3-4 times with 3.2, and I need to manually "Enable Wireless" to make it connect to the wireless.

Many thanks, Mark! :) :)

Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 12, 2013, 05:05:55 pm
Are you saying you need to run "rfkill unblock" every boot ?

BTW, we're not done yet .. we need to set the 32.kernel as the default, so you don't have to select it every time.

And it probably wouldn't hurt to try fix wired in 3.2 too
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 12, 2013, 05:13:03 pm
Every time the system reboots, I need to manually select 'Enable Wireless' from the drop down menu in the top bar. Yes, we are not done yet. Here's what I am thinking:

1. Auto boot to 3.2
2. Fixing wired connection
3. Getting rid of error messages that show up everytime the system boots.

I am up for a clean install with 3.2 if it helps sorting out all the three with one stroke! Have already backed up my important files.
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 12, 2013, 05:21:55 pm
Can't do a clean install .. at least till we work out why wired doesn't work .. if we install 12.04.1 you won't have a wired connection, which is necessary to install build-essential, which is needed to compile the wireless driver  ::)

Check back here later .. I need to do a little homework on the wired driver, and why wireless is disabled at boot.

Try this .. whilst booted to 3.2 run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-initramfs -u

Now reboot and tell me if you still need to enable wireless manually

Also post the contents of
Code: [Select]

Completely agree with you, Mark!

Yes, after reboot, wireless needs to be enabled manually.

Also, the connection dropped every 3 mins or so. But it has not, since last reboot. Will keep an eye on connection drops, if they happen again on subsequent reboots.

Wired connection .. seems we need to install the alx driver (which is included in later kernels, but not it 3.2) from a specific version of compat-wireless (yes, even though we're not talking about wireless) .. so in 3.2 run:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/alx-driver
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/alx-driver
then
Code: [Select]
wget http://wireless.kernel.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6/compat-wireless-2012-02-28-p.tar.bz2
then
Code: [Select]
tar -xvf compat-wireless-2012-02-28-p.tar.bz2
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/alx-driver/compat-wireless-2012-02-28-p
then
Code: [Select]
scripts/driver-select alx
then
Code: [Select]
make
then
Code: [Select]
sudo make install
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe alx

Does wired now work ?

if so, does it survive a reboot ?

and what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
now ?

OK. setting 3.2 as the default kernel -

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

Find the line:-

GRUB_DEFAULT=0

and change it to:-

GRUB_DEFAULT="2>1"

SAVE the file, and close gedit.

Back in the terminal, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub

When that finishes .. Reboot, and see if the 3.2 kernel boot if you just let grub count down.

Once booted you can check which kernel you've booted into with:
Code: [Select]
uname -a

REMEMBER .. if anything goes wrong, you can still manually select the 3.2 kernel from the GRUB menu.



[EDIT]

Would you like to shorten the 10 second GRUB countdown ? (if so, how long would you like it to be ?) .. or indeed would you like to get rid of it altogether now ?

Are you still having to enable wireless manually ?

When it is let to select the kernel on its own - it selects 3.8.0.29 recovery mode. Here's the output (while in 3.8):

Code: [Select]
vishal@vishalcomp:~$ uname -a
Linux vishalcomp 3.8.0-29-generic #42~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Aug 14 16:19:23 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

and here's output while in 3.2:

Code: [Select]
vishal@vishalcomp:~$ uname -a
Linux vishalcomp 3.2.34-030234-generic #201211161335 SMP Fri Nov 16 18:36:29 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Would you like me to give you the menu/submenu item list in the GRUB?

As for GRUB menu timeout - I think we can halve it - for in future it might just be needed.

And yes, upon reboot this time around, I had to manually enable wireless.

My mistake .. run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

find the line that reads

GRUB_DEFAULT="2>1"

and change it to

GRUB_DEFAULT="2>2"

SAVE the file and close gedit.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub

Reboot to test.

OK, to half the GRUB timer -

run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

find the line that reads:-

GRUB_TIMEOUT=10

and change it to:-

GRUB_TIMEOUT=5

SAVE the file, and exit gedit.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub

Reboot to test.



I'm hoping the having to manually enable wireless will sort itself .. as it did before .. so reboot a few times and let me know.

It all works wonderfully! :) I too hope that issue of manually enabling wireless sorts out by itself.

Mark, you have been a great help and I just can't thank you enough! I learned a lot too through all of this!

Thank you once again! :)
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 12, 2013, 09:43:15 pm
you're welcome :)

Did the manually enabling wireless sort itself a while ago .. or have you ALWAYS had to enable it since we got it working ?
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 12, 2013, 09:55:03 pm
It was auto connecting - till the system rebooted with 3.8 recovery mode. Since then, wireless needs to be enabled manually. I wonder what could have gone wrong with that seemingly innocuous reboot!
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 12, 2013, 10:01:32 pm
Dunno .. hopefully it will sort itself .. if it doesn't in a day or two, let me know and we'll look into a fix.

Theoretically we could write a script to enable wireless and set that to run at startup .. but I'd rather find out WHY it's not sticking across a breboot if it becomes necessary.
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: vishal on October 12, 2013, 10:06:58 pm
Sure Mark! Will wait till Tuesday, and will let you know, whichever way it goes.

Hey Mark - even after multiple reboots, the system still needs manual intervention to enable wireless! Wonder, if we could do something to fix it.
Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on October 16, 2013, 11:58:08 am
Is it just wifi you need to enable in networkmanager .. or networking ?

can you reboot (so wireless is OFF) then run this command to see if it enables it:
Code: [Select]
nmcli nm wifi on

if that doesn't work, try:
Code: [Select]
nmcli nm enabled true

If one of those works .. try adding the command as an autostart action.

Title: Re: Ralink wireless card does not work [SOLVED]
Post by: Mark Greaves (PCNetSpec) on April 28, 2015, 10:29:58 pm
OK, try this...

Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf
when a BLANK file opens, add a single line that reads
Code: [Select]
options rtl8723be fwlps=0 ips=0
SAVE the file and exit gedit

REBOOT

Test



On the offchance that kills your wireless, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf
and reboot .. and you'll be back to where you are now.
