Mark, you have been very helpful getting other people's Ralink devices to work.

I have an Alfa AWUS052NH  that is a

ID 148f:3572 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT3572 Wireless Adapter

The rt2800usb driver is not linking it -

[694177.105158] ieee80211 phy41: rt2x00usb_vendor_request: Error - Vendor Request 0x06 failed for offset 0x0500 with error -19


I found and installed MediaTek's DPO_RT5572_LinuxSTA_2.6.1.3_20121022 version of the drivers which should support this device, but get different errors with it.

I was hoping to grab and use the 2010 drivers you have referenced in the feed, but the drop box location is no longer available and I can't locate the file elsewhere.

Can you freshen up the link so I can grab and try that driver? Or maybe you have some insight for this device that might get me further?

I appreciate the help you have provided for the last 5+ years on this message feed! Thanks!

Geo

Is this the one you're after my friend:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/eff4wd0mmln8ui0/2010_0831_RT3070_Linux_STA_v2.4.0.1_DPO.tar.bz2?dl=0
?

or do you mean:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/8i05qjwkr8prvhb/2010_0915_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.4.0.2.tar.gz?dl=0

or maybe:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/tqo5k17f2ptozg3/2011_0427_RT3572_Linux_STA_v2.5.0.0.tar.bz2?dl=0

I have no idea if those will compile against recent kernels though (in fact I'm nearly positive they won't).

Let me know how you get on, and if it's without luck maybe we can find another solution.
