Oh yes, I discovered many, many useful apps for circuit board design, and some neat first-person shooter games, and that was just what I could find in-between posts.  And I will indeed come back here if I need help in the future.

Hey! First of all, thank you for your works, Mark! You do a great job!
You described in this post exactly the problem i have so thank you :)
Your pre-modified version works fine, no errors anymore whan compilating but my Wireless adaptaters isn't detected..? With the 10.04, it worked with the rt2870sta v2.2 but in 10.10 it does'nt work!:( I have a Belkin HWNU 300.
May you help me? Thank you!

[EDIT] For future readers - This posting is WRONG, see here:
http://linuxforums.org.uk/hardware-compatibility/ralink-rt2870-based-usb-wireless-n-adapters-(ubuntu)/msg52771/#msg52771

The RTL8192SU drivers *only* apply to the HWNUm-300... The HWNU-300 *does* use the RT2870STA driver.

There is a pre-modified version (with the HWNU-300 ID string added) linked to further down the page. (in post #39)
[END EDIT]

You are using the wrong drivers... the Belkin HWNU 300 and HWNUm-300 appear to use the RTL8192SU chipset.

The RTL8192SU drivers can be downloaded here:
http://www.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=21&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true

Make sure you get the right ones... about half way down the page.

Oh O.o Thank you, wondering why it worked with the RT2870TSTA driver.. I will use this, thank you

EDIT: I've read about that in some forums and it appeared that only the HWNUm-300 worked with the RTL8192SU driver but you're probably right... But now my wireless adaptater works with your pre-modified driver! I just wrote in ./common/rt_dev_id.c  "{USB_DEVICE(0x06f8:0xe030)}, /*HWNU-300/*" to make my wireless adpatater recognized.
Thank you for your driver, if i have a problem i will try the RTL8182SU driver :)
Thank you!

Don't thank me YET... I'm only going by what I've spotted online :)

Is this a USB device ?

Can you send the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network

and

Code: [Select]
lsusb

If it's NOT a USB device, can you also send the output from:
Code: [Select]
lspci -nn

OK, it looks like RT2870STA ARE the correct drivers... give me a bit to add the vendor:device ID strings to the driver, and I'll send you a link.

FORGET the RTL8192SU drivers... they are the WRONG ones.

So it's working now ?

Well I've uploaded a driver with a modified rtusb_dev_id.c for your HWNU-300 here:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11876059/Y0a0bon_RT2870_Linux_STA_v2.4.0.1.tar.bz2
just in case.

Can I quote you in the contributors of the wiki: http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/| (the french community ubuntu documentation)?

The driver will compile/install in 11.04 (after modification), but I'm not sure if the blacklisting of rt2800usb is still necessary.
