[Solved] installing the Rosewill RNX-EasyN1 driver
Rather than cover the things I tried that didn't work, here is the
way to get it to work with CentOS. These steps should also work
with other distros, I just haven't tested them.
1) Uninstall any remnants of previous drivers or firmware.
2) Download the rnx-easyn1_linux_v.2.1.1.bz2 file from www.rosewill.com.
3) cd /usr/local/src and tar xvf rnx-easyn1_linux_w.2.1.1..bz2
4) cd 2009_0525_RT3070_Linux_STA_v220.127.116.11
5) configure the driver to use the OS's wpa_supplicant:
sed -i "s/WPA_SUPPLICANT=n/WPA_SUPPLICANT=y/" os/linux/config.mk
sed -i "s/SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=n/SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y/" os/linux/config.mk
6) make; make install
7) mv /etc/Wireless/RT3070STA /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
8) vi /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat
set the ESSID and any other needed values
9) modprobe rt3070sta; dhclient ra0
If step 9 works and you'd like the interface to come up
automatically in Red Hat or CentOS, run these commands:
echo "alias ra0 rt2870sta" >> /etc/modprobe.d/ra0
echo "DEVICE='ra0'" > /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ra0
echo "ONBOOT='yes'" >> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ra0
echo "BOOTPROTO='dhcp'" >> /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ra0
