[Moved to Hardware] How do I get this network driver to work ?


Hey guys,

This is my first time using linux and my wireless card isn't being detected. I have an ASUS UX30 with the Azureware NE768 wireless LAN card. I downloaded the NE768 windows driver (No Linux driver) from ASUS's website and it extracted into a driver for the Ralink RT2860 so Im guessing its the RT2860 chipset or something.

I downloaded the RT2860 linux driver and firmware from here:
http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Hom...ort/Linux.html,
Then put the firmware in /lib/firmware/

#tar -xzf 2009_0521_RT2860_Linux_STA_V2.1.2.0.tgz

edited /os/linux/config.mk so it reads:
HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y
HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y

then
$sudo make
$sudo make install
$sudo insmod /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt2860sta.ko
$sudo modprobe rt2860sta

I got no output after insmod and no output after modprobe so I assume it worked (whatever insmod and modprobe does) but the network connections still doesn't say I have a wireless card.

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Thanks,
d

Hello and wellcome to LQ,

how do you know that your wireless-card was not detected? Please post the output of
Code:
/sbin/lspci | egrep -i '(ether|network|wire)'

Hey, thanks for the response. I don't have lspci in /sbin

Quote:
bash: /sbin/lspci: No such file or directory
Quote:
sudo: /sbin/lspci: command not found
EDIT: ok I tried something else:

Quote:
$lspci | egrep -i '(ether|network|wire)'
02:00.0 Network controller: RaLink Device 3091
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Attansic Technology Corp. Devoce 1063 (rev c0)
Does this tell me that I actually have the RaLink 3091 ? That means I've been using the wrong driver. Let me see if i can find the 3091 driver.

http://www.ralinktech.com/ralink/Hom...ort/Linux.html

but I get this when i try to do insmod and modprobe (after doing make and make install):

Quote:
$sudo insmod rt3090sta.ko
insmod: error inserting 'rt3090sta.ko': -l Unknown symbol in module
$sudo modprobe rt3090sta
FATAL: Error inserting rt3090sta ((/lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/rt3090.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)

Hi again,

I'm not sure if this devic actually is a Wlan-card. Google told me that your Asus is very new. So I'd recommend to post this issue in the hardware-forum of LQ.
