How to install wireless networking driver
I am trying to install an Asus USB-N13 USB Wireless Networking stick on an Intel-chip laptop loaded with Debian squeeze release. I have built a driver (rt3070sta.ko) and the "insmod rt3070sta.ko" seems to have worked fine. I can see the driver with "ifconfig ra0" and I can set an ip address with "ifconfig ra0 inet...".
1: The gnome network manager doesn't see any wireless networks to connect to.
2: If I try "ifconfig ra0 up" I get "SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted"
I am doing this from a root window and my login has root privileges. I'm missing a last step - what is it?
