RT2070L usb ethernet mint linux 2.6.32-21-generic


Got my cheap wireless adapter to work simply by doing this & nothing else.


Code:

$sudo pico /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

add the following lines:
blacklist rt2x00usb
blacklist rt2x00lib
blacklist rt2800usb
close and save.

Hi,

I am new to Linux. When I follow your example by running

$sudo pico /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

I got error like "pico is not a command". Then I open blacklist.conf file directly in an editor, and add those three lines, then restart the OS, and check the NETWORK under Service, which is enabled. But my network card is still not recognised. Because its light is not flashing.

Any idea would be appreciated!
