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!

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.

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]
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 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
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 -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!

Before we go any further .. can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/*-release

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:-
http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=10422.msg84767#msg84767

and try everything after the warning.

if the command
Code: [Select]
make
fails .. let me know what the last 10 or so lines of the output were.

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! :)
